“Fabulous meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We recently ate at L'Agua and it was an amazing meal. My husband had the seabass and I had dorado. Both meal were outstanding and creatively done. The fish were both cooked perfectly. We orded a bottle of wine from the Bandol region that we really enjoyed. We shared a wonderful salad as a starter and also shared a citron dessert that was excellent. We each were given a complimentary after dinner digestif. Thasset ice was very good and we were warmly welcomed when we arrived. We plan to take our daughter there when she arrives later this month for a visit. We highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.

“Quite good restaurant in the harbour area. Not a tourist trap!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Good restaurant, attentive and talkative staff. Delicious and good quality meals. Casual dress. Family atmosphere. A good dining option apart from old city's tourist traps. I suggest this one.

“Number one - really?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

We went to this restaurant based on the ratings and I have to say it was one of the biggest disappointments I have had with TA. The inside has no ambiance at all ... Gray walls with a light fixture that does nothing to hide the bare bulb. We chose to sit outside on the sidewalk, which was somewhat better. Like many of the local restaurants we visit, this one has one waiter to service all clientele. Our server was a talker and I felt he was often talking just to hear himself talk. He did not like our choice of wine so decided we would like his choice better and it was good and less expensive than the one we had selected. Why have a wine on the menu that the staff will not serve it? My husband had the Durabe which he did enjoy and I had the Risotto with 3 Augustines and several rather sad clams. It was ok but certainly not for 20 euros. When it was time to leave the waiter was on a smoke break talking to friends so we waited and waited... There are many fine restaurants in Nice and I see no reason to return to this one.

“A Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We were looking for a genuine French Cuisine experience whilst holidaying in Nice and found it at L'Agua. The hospitality, warmth and dining experience were excellent. The chef was very passionate about his food and took the time to portray the French menu in detail.
The excellent wine complemented the food and our evening was complete.
