“Impressive serving size! The biggest creme caramel I have ever seen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We initially tried this place after seeing the size of their pasta plates - so enormous that it was a novelty! We went back 2 more times as the food was surprisingly very good and it was unbeatable value. Service is excellent, despite being a busy place. Modern decor.

I can recommend the seafood pasta, rigatoni, 600 gram intercote, creme caramel and profiteroles. Did taste the lobster pasta but didn't care for it. Great value in Nice. One word of advise - order less, the servings are so big that most people won't finish their mains on their own.

“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

La Favola is located at the corner of Cours Saleya and is basically the only restaurant worth mentioning on Cours Saleya.

Le Safari, which is located on the same square and hoisted in all the guidebooks, is to avoid. After five visits they have not yet delivered... but Favola does!

Unfortunately it is not possible to pre-book a table, but once you are in place they do have a waiting list and within no more than 30 minutes you will have a table.

The portions are huge so skip the appetizer and aim for the main courses. The Seafood pasta is really worth the wait!

“Great value - top quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We had lunch here. Although it is on the main tourist/restaurant strip, where the quality is often suspect, this was a real gem. The antipasti misto plate was enough for two and the plat du jour was a fauz filet with potatoes lyonnais. Great quality and value at 12 Euros. Can highly recommend La Favola.
