“Wonderful New Year's Eve afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

My husband and I arrived in Nice on New Year's Eve. When walking by Cafe de turin, we saw tons of oysters and other fun seafood platters. We had to join in! We were lucky to snag a table right outside under the nice heaters and literally stuffed ourselves with seafood! The waiter was so kind and helpful, even teaching us how to eat a sea urchin (we had no idea). Also picking very reasonably priced bottles for us to match our food choices. We had a very memorable experience at this restaurant.... we loved watching everyone pass by in the square, too. We highly recommend this place for the food and the experience. We will be back. Thank you !!!!

“well worth a whirl”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Even under plastic to protect from the rain pouring down and obscuring the Place Garibaldi, this place's seafood is delicious, fresh and given in large portions. Try the Chateau de Bern rose for an excellent accompaniment!

“French and exceptional seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Went on our own and returned two days later hosteb by friends who live in Nice. First the food. Outstandingly fresh with a wide selection of oysters, clams, shrimps, whelks and various other fruits de mer. Service was "edgy" but caring. The waiters knew their seafood and their wine....... but, as always, it helps to speak French.
Net, this is a French seafood par excellence with its quirks. Go and have fun and fresh oysters!
