We had been here a few years ago and had a lovely meal, but with slow service! Tonight we still had the slow service but the meal was a big let down!! Caipirinha cocktails on the special menu were nice but poorly presented! Combined starter was very nice. Steak we ordered was the worst I have had for several years!... More

On our honeymoon, stumbled upon this place, with its' dark red interior and candle light with Edith Piaf purring in the background. We absolutely loved the traditional French onion soup, duck with berries and chocolate mousse, would highly recommend!!!!!

Simple little restaurant more suited to romantic couples as very red. Visited with a friend and had the tuna which was decent and steak was ok but for the price we had a slightly better one around the corner.

We stumbled upon this restaurant after finding the restaurant we were originally aiming for was closed on Saturday evenings. It looked very quaint and romantic from the outside and the owner said they were fully booked, but luckily she owned the adjoining property, so guided us around the corner to a whole extra room (the two rooms share the kitchen)....

My husband & I had dinner in the old town which turned out to be our best meal in Nice itself! The service was okay but the meal certainly made up for it and the chic decor of the restaurant made it a lovely place to have a special meal out! My husband was especially blown away by the size... More

The restaurant is hidden in small street in Old town Niece. It is welcoming and have a nice climate. We took the set menu for 31.90e per person which included starter, main and dessert. All food was very good quality wise - not so much in quantity, for example: my main was duck breast and I got literally 3 small... More

We came across this place by accident and likely so much we returned. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The wine is good even the house red. Can recommend the cod dish. Would definitely go back.

We had a wonderful lunch with a Groupon and it was a delightful surprise - classic cuisine with fresh ingredients, cooked to order - not often the case in Vieux Nice where there are so many tourist traps. This one is the real thing. The server was very helpful and pleasant, the décor fun and cozy - and the food... More

In our last few visits to Nice, we had not been back to this restaurant but decided to return this time. The decor is interesting, lit up a bit like a boudoir but it is smart and comfortable. We were well received by two excellent young waiters who looked after us throughout the meal. Food was excellent and well presented.... More
