The place is nice, the food is good but I was expecting more. I was expecting more show and molecurar kitchen but got "only" good dishes.

We have known about this restaurant for some time, just waiting for someone to tell us if worth visiting! and then friends invited us for dinner there and all was revealed! We were well looked after by the female maitre d’hotel and waiters, meals presented in great details and with flair. Everything was in the spirit of a starred restaurant... More

Top cuisine in centre of Nice. Relaxt ambiance. We had a 5-course lunch with 20 people and everbody was delighted by the quality and refined taste of each dish. The staff understand their metier and made it a highly enjoyable afternoon for us! Highly recommended in every way!

We sat outside this lovely little restaurant on our first night. Very friendly staff and although we had to wait a good 10 minutes for our bottle of wine to chill sufficiently the waiter did do his best! This restaurant is on one of the main tourist areas and the prices reflected this but the moulles were very good, as... More

We ordered the "R" Evolution molecular menu at the restaurant, and every course exceeded our expectations. There were eleven courses, each with minute portions, which allowed to taste a large variety of styles in molecular cuisine. Each course was beautifully presented, and featured innovative flavor associations. Moreover, the staff was very welcoming, and ours in particular added theatrical flair to... More

We came here during our cote d'azur inter interrail and it left us a great memory of NIzza. The cuisine is absolutely of the top quality and the dishes are very well presented. The service, however, is rather slow.

My wife and I have eaten here before when it was full and really buzzing, on the Thursday before Easter it was empty and we were the first to arrive. Possibly this explains why the Head Waiter came to our table so often and my wife found him overbearing. We had the more normal menu and it was good, but... More

I really enjoyed my meal in this restaurant. We had a romantic birthday dinner and they have the perfect surrounding for romantic evenings. For the price of 45 Euro I can highly recommend the 3 course menu 'inclination des mets'. (The same menu is less expensive at lunch time.) The dishes are innovative and different from other restaurants. I know... More

Have to say that our lunch time visit at this restaurant was a strange and rather disappointing experience. The food is trying hard to be modern and special but unfortunately it matches the tasteless 1980's time warp of an interior more than anything else. We have tried out a lot of great restaurants in Nice and based on reviews, looked... More
