“Amazing food on small back street Old Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This is one of the places we did have a reservation as they said how hard it was to get in. We have nothing but wonderful praise for the service, food and wine that we had. The dishes were made from very local ingredients such as the lentils and homemade sausage from a small butcher in the area. The salad nicoise was the only one during our trip that actually was made with fresh, not canned tuna. We had a beautiful bottle of local Bellet wine from Clos Saint Vincent which I'm going to buy back in the USA.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

First things first, you will need to reserve well in advance to make sure you get a table at this splendid restaurant.

Service was friendly and knowledgable, and the patron very welcoming.

The food was excellent - I ate a carpaccio of St Jacques and my friend tartine de pied de cochon for starters, both excellent. We followed by onlet de veau and magret de canard, both simply and traditionally prepared. I couldn't manage pudding, but my friend's tarte aux pommes was beautifully presented and he managed to finish it off without complaint!

Thoroughly recommended and at about 110E for 2 iuncluding a glass of wine with each course, not bad value at all for Nice.

Go if you can get a table, you won't be disappointed.

“Great food, excellent service and a cozy atmosphere- we loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Arrived into this restaurant on what had to be the worst Nice weather - it was raining from the heavens! Despite the weather, we immediately cheered up and had a great evening. We enjoyed an excellent 3 course meal and some good wine. Our waitress Taylor was great! We will return.

“Excellent food rather noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We were recommended this restaurant and found it excellent. Food choices and service were good. Moderate prices.
Very noisy downstairs, less so upstairs.
Booking advisable as it was very busy when we went.

“Extraordinary Cuisine Value Priced in Nice's Vieux Ville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Spurred by TripAdvisor's uniformally positive reviews of this superb bistro, I telephoned several weeks before departing the U.S. to make a reservation for a Friday evening. It was a good thing I did, because the restaurant was "complete" both Friday and Saturday. In fact it telephoned me on my cell to confirm while I was waiting for a connecting flight to Nice the morning of our reservation. The menu offered a wonderfully varied selection of excellent dishes containing exceptional ingredients prepared with professionalism and panache. A must for any foodie visiting this marvelous city, France's fifth largest.
