“Great food and personal service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Read good reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. No reservation but the waitress (manager/owner we think) still managed to find us a table, but don't count on it as the place was full and many were rejected after we sat down.
Food: Limited menu but should satisfy most people. We had duck with roasted potatoes and the risotto with scallops, both excellent and perfectly prepared. Dessert was choclate fondant, and probably the best we ever had.
Service: perfect. Always taken care of in best possible way.

Best meal we had in Nice.

“Very good, but number 1?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

The night before we ate at a restaurant rated 20 something in Nice that was slightly better. BUT, we were very happy at Sejour and would recommend it! Very nice staff. Gazpacho was really Vichychoise, but it was great! Molton chocolate cake was hot and runny, but the chocolate could have been better.

Cher Monsieur
Merci de votre appréciation flatteuse. Vous vous interrogez sur notre classement de N° 1. Je pense que celui ci est le reflet de très nombreux avis, déposés par les clients, sans notre intervention... Ce que disent ces clients est simple : ils considèrent que le cadre, l'accueil, le service, la cuisine, font de nous leur restaurant préféré. C'est un ensemble qu'ils jugent et apprécient, en nous classant N°1. Pas seulement la cuisine. Recevoir les clients, en Anglais, Italien, Allemand, Néerlandais et Français, est un signe de respect et de courtoisie. Avec le sourire ! Sincère, car nous aimons recevoir. C'est pourquoi notre restaurant ressemble à un appartement, comme le disent les clients, qui s'y sentent bien, très bien même. Alors, l'on peut légitimement préférer telle ou telle table, ce qui est bien normal, en fonction de ses humeurs, de ses envies, mais l'important c'est de trouver un équilibre aussi parfait que possible entre tous les éléments qui font que la soirée sera réussie. Telle est notre désir : faire plaisir, pour que vous passiez un bon moment. C'est notre but. Et si j'en crois les réactions, toutes nationalités confondues, c'est, semble-t-il le cas. Les clients ne jugent pas seulement la cuisine, sinon des restaurants réputés seraient toujours premiers ! ils émettent une préférence. C'est plus subtil , car c'est un savant équilibre. Rien ne doit décevoir. Nous espérons vous revoir prochainement et vous remercions d'avoir pris le temps d'écrire à Tripadvisor.

“good without too much risk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

food was very good but there were no exclamation point, that give give you the impression of non ended. the service is ok with on or two mistakes but nothing handicapping but the hearty owner make up with her smile. the bill is ok too, it's not free but not too much expansive.

“Friendly owner, good food but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

My favorite thing about this restaurant is the very friendly owner/waitstaff. We had lunch here and the prices were quite high considering the relatively small portions. The food was very good and we enjoyed it, but feel we've gotten better value at other restaurants.

“yes it's good but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

waitress are welcoming, restaurant is in city center, we really like the decor of the restaurant.
it's a good food but we expected better after reading the reviews. presentation is beautiful and I think it's fresh products but the codfish had no taste at all and was cold.
table are tight, and the bottle of water (home made) at 5 euros for not mineral water, is expensive...
maybe we 'll try again.
