Description: Located on Boulevard Dubouchage in Nice, Restaurant Aphrodite combines a potent mix of vibrant energy, exciting nouvelle cuisine and seriously stylish customers to create what has become one of the most innovative restaurants in town. Popular with a chichi corporate crowd during the day and discerning diners at night, the modern Mediterranean dining room is dressed in burnt orange and cream colours, and is decorated with contemporary artworks, sleek chairs and lemon-hued lighting. The kitchen at Aphrodite is renowned for its bold cuisine, and signature dishes include the fillet of beef roasted with pine needles and served with apple mashed potatoes; the pigeon roasted with cumin and rosemary served with Chantenay carrots; and the fillet of Saint-Pierre roasted with liquorice, pistachio nuts, purple artichokes and lemons.

Food was just outstanding and the wine selections amazing. Excellent the food and the wine presentation. The service was very good. However there are few points to be highlighted which shouldn’t happen in a 1 star Michelin restaurant: 1. Food came out from the kitchen a bit late out of temperature; 2. The red wine glasses were not appropriate; 3.... More

If I had to resume the experience in one word it would be "Disappointing". The dinner didn´t started ok. Just when you got in, there was a waiter that showed us our table table but after that, 40 minutes waiting to have the menu to see what we could order. We ordered a 6-dish menu (69€ excluding drinks) but not... More

It started ok. I had decided to dine there to experience the "alternative menu" with insects as the theme.with accompanying wines by the glass. The first course was ok, but the service started slipping when the waiter complained about a bad arm and topped the glass with white wine. Rather than serving it in smaller fillings. making it hard to... More

Delightful. Exciting menus, superbly cooked and presented. Value was pretty amazing given the overall quality and experience. As with all reviews...if you prefer standard run of the mill...don't bother to eat here...it's not for you!

I put 4 out of 5 but really I'd prefer 3,5. First things first, the inside decor. I personally do not find it classy, it looks more like a jungle design for a cocktail bar. The service to us was excellent. Everything was served in time and far more important, they catered for our needs as we had an issue... More

Lovely setting, creative food, very friendly service but incredibly slow. Finished our main course at 21:20, coffee arrived 90 minutes later! Asked for bill 3 times, eventually came 30 mins later. Over 3.5 hours for 2 courses and a coffee. Please!

I brought one of my best friends here for her 40th birthday dinner and it was memorable indeed. Matias our server was impeccable and added so much to the dinner with his humor and presentation. They incorporate liquid nitrogen with many of their dishes that are made and served table side. They described the meal as "sometimes we will be... More

If you are tired of ... regular food then Aphrodite will give you a chance to avoid it. Because it's not only food but entertainment and fun! Take menu REVOLUTION and it will help you to kill 3-4 hours of boring evening in Byzantium. Pay attention to the close building - Villa Georges - the former palace of morganatic wife... More

This is the problem. A restaurant is adventurous and produces great food of interest and many just don't get it. Ignore. Go. Enjoy. Quite excellent.
