Located in an old house in the port of Nice, L'Âne Rouge and its pretty little terrace are well known in Nice. The food is simple, based on fresh, local produce, yet is chic and refined at the same time. The menu is based around fish and shellfish, used to produce the imaginative dishes of Chef Michel Devillers. Try the courgette flower with sardines served with Riviera noodles; braised sea bass with fresh coconut or parfum of haddock and Chipencornet. Otherwise choose from the great fish of the day selection such as gilthead bream, red sea bream, sea bass, John Dory, all caught by Mr Gilbert the fisherman. As far as desserts go, the chocolate macoranade and the Bulgarian ice cream are irresistible.

Imaginative cuisine but overpriced

We went in a group and the restaurant was empty except for us. The staff were excellent, very attentive but for me it was expensive. The food was delicately crafted and definitely on the "fine dining" wavelength but it was quite fiddly and I think a few of us were still hungry. In the summer it might be different -... More

One of the best value for me. Excellent food, fresh products selected and cooked by the chef and owner Michel Deviller. Go for the set menu. 3 courses lunch plus wine and coffee for less the 35£ Diner different options for degustation. It is a proper chef as you would like to see more often. More and more restaurant are... More

If you are in Nice,and would like to taste some fresh fish-although there are may touristic places-try the" L'Anne Rouge" at the Nice port.Service is really young,fast,food is really good,and if the weather is good,seat outside,and enjoy. Fish or meat,even on the low priced "formule"is worth tasting. And,one of the best plates-the home made tarte de pommes. Bonne appetit

This is a must restaurant. A local recommended it. Located on the harbor, we selected outside seating. We found service in most restaurants in Nice designed to be a dining experience, definitely not rushed. My husband had a beef dish and I would return for the Sea Bass, perfectly prepared.

L'Ane Rouge has been a culinary landmark in Nice for as long as we have been coming here (almost 4 decades) and serving up fine fare long before many of the new dining rooms in town expanded the playing field. We have been delighted at all the new options, but there is something to be said for tradition-provided that it... More

We went for dinner and had two of the tasting menus. The gazpacho was tasty as was the lobster appetizer. Our main dishes were also excellent the chicken savory and the beef well cooked. The beef just needed a side dish as it only comes with some carrots. The dessert were fruit based( not my favorite) but were still very... More

Description

Located in an old house in the port of Nice, L'Âne Rouge and its pretty little terrace are well known in Nice. The food is simple, based on fresh, local produce, yet is chic and refined at the same time. The menu is based around fish and shellfish, used to produce the imaginative dishes of Chef Michel Devillers. Try the courgette flower with sardines served with Riviera noodles; braised sea bass with fresh coconut or parfum of haddock and Chipencornet. Otherwise choose from the great fish of the day selection such as gilthead bream, red sea bream, sea bass, John Dory, all caught by Mr Gilbert the fisherman. As far as desserts go, the chocolate macoranade and the Bulgarian ice cream are irresistible.
