“Fabulous Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Thanks to Trip Advisor reviewers for helping us find a one of the nicest overall dining experiences we have had in a long time. We were lucky enough to get a reservation on our first try. Family owned and run, this small "living room" interior and outdoor deck only holds a small number of tables so make your reservation early if you want to eat here. The menu is in French but will be explained in detail to you by one of the owners. Everything we tried was stunning from the appetizers to the desserts and to the recommended choice of wine. You will not be rushed, take your time, enjoy your meal, strike up a conversation with the people sitting next to you. The interior space is small so the tables are close together but we found that a nice way to share our experience with others. You are made to feel at home in this delightful café. Having eaten at a lot of well known American chefs' restaurants I can honestly say this is right at the top of amazing meals. The quality, the atmosphere, the friendliness of the owners and staff added up to an incredible experience.

“Book now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

A superb family run restaurant which brings fine dining to Nice. If you just want a pot of mussels and glass of wine go to any one of the hundreds of restaurants lining the streets. If you want a memorable dining experience with extremely friendly staff, professional service and brilliant food, go to Le Sejour. This was undoubtably the best meal of our trip in Nice and was good value for money considering the quality of the experience. (Try the warm foie gras starter!) I would not be surprised to see a Michelin star adorning its walls in the future...

“Lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This is a true gem this place. Owned by a family who all work in the restaurant, it's a bit pricey but well worth it for the relaxing atmosphere.

“Jewel of Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We dined here while visiting Nice in October. Le Sejour Cafe is an intimate little restaurant with the most exquisite French cuisine. Our entrees consisted of sea bass and duck breast which were accompanied by well-prepared vegetable dishes. The presentations were flawless! From the appetizers to the desserts, we had the most gourmet experience while in Nice. The family-run restaurant is deserving of all its accolades! This was the best meal we had while traveling in France!
