“A bit disappointing!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We've wanted to eat here for a while: great location, lovely looking, nice menu and a reasonably priced Menu du Jour - however, when we visited the service was very slow indeed! This isn't the fault of the actual staff who were lovely but for most of the evening 3 people were covering the whole of the downstairs terrace which meant after initially placing our order we waited an age for drinks, entree and then the main course. When the food did arrive it was good but also disappointing - I think the kitchen was also under staffed as one of our mains was almost cold - the desserts looked great but by this time we'd given up and so just aksed for the bill. While waiting a huge coach party emerged from upstairs inside the restaurant and a host of other staff so I'm hoping that this explains the very average evening so we may try again. I'd also add it's good for families (it was full of them) and so perhaps not good for a romantic meal for two!

“Customers? Who needs 'em?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

Completely insolent staff. I asked whether the house wine was good (in French) and was rewarded with a shrug. No desert menu offered and a struggle to get coffee. The excellent work in the kitchen wrecked by useless front of house

“Excellent dining”

This was our second trip to Nice and so far this is the best restaurant we've visited. Excellent food and excellent service, everyone spoke english. Very much recommended on our behalf.

“Our favourite restaurant in Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Out of all of the restaurants we ate in during our five day break in Nice this was by far our favourite! We enjoyed the duck and mushroom risotto, duck in honey, chocolate mousse and cheesecake. The cheesecake was so sweet and moreish - highly recommended! The service was great. Our waitress was so attentive that as soon as we finished our bottle of water she was there with another! The price is incredibly reasonable, especially when we got a delicious aperitif and a large basket of bread both complimentary. Overall - great!

“Wonderful service and Delicious meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

The service was really friendly and efficient. The staff knew and understood the menu and had no difficulty in explaining it in english. The menu was varied and extensive. Our food arrived promptly and every mouthful was delicious. The monkfish was really special. This was a busy restaurant on two floors with a great buzz to it. We ate upstairs at well spaced tables with comfortable seating. The decor is quiet and modern/elegant. I would definitely go back.
