“Food from Nice at the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This restaurant has updated ancient recipes from Nice and around at the highest level
Quaity of food is great and it results in fantastic dishes
Don't miss the sweets at the end of the meal : peach soup is so refreshing when sun and heat is there
Good service and warm welcome
But reservation in advance is a must
Two restaurants : one in the historic center of the town Cagnes sur Mer next to the tiny church facing the sea, the other one on the newly built little harbor.

“nice plateau de possoins”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

a traditional fish and seafood restaurant; straighforward service.
we had for ourselves a plateau de poissons dish: an enormous plate with ultra fresh grilled fish and calamari, served with some baked potatoes.
our children had a sole, served with some pasta.
over-all food quality was excellent, we drank a good chablis and paid 380 eur for 4 adults and 5 kids. definitely a good choice when in Cagnes-sur-Mer (and there is a public parking at the back of the restaurant)

“Not or love, only money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

I have a love-hate relationship with Charlot 1ere. For a while I stopped going, but then gave it another try two years ago and gladly went back until last night. It's a dependable place or oysters and as three visits very recently showed, one for lobsters as well. Last night, however, my wife and a friend ordered steamed lobsters that came out dry, tasteless and overcooked, while my fried calamari was made with rancid oil. The waiter took away the unfinished dishes. When the owner's wife came to table, I told her that the dishes were poorly-made. Nonetheless she charged me the full amount after which I said either you should have offered to remake the dishes or not charge us. All I got was a "sorry" (not even an "I'm sorry") at which point I told her she didn't care about good cuisine or the well-being of her clients, but only money. It's better to spend somewhat more and visit Jacques Maximin's restaurant a block east.

“THE UTMOST OYSTER EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

I f you happen to be in the vicinity of Nice or anywhere of the Cote D, Azur and of course if like sea food and oysters ( raw, the plateau of sea food is an hour long feast ) please make a point to go to Charlot. He and his wife are always in the restaurant and will help you choose the best menu to your taste. If the weather permits insist on an outdoor table or better one on the upstairs terrace. The wine list is not long but the wines that the they suggest are enough for the oyster eater. There is a parking just behind and if the barrier does not work call the waiters to open it by force. ( this is what happened to us ) Sea food is not cheap in Europe so gorge yourself on sea food and do not continue with fish. Keep a little space for desert.
