Unlike many places done up to look like a "local" restaurent, (and there are far too many of those in Nice and elsewhere), this is actually the real deal. You'll find locals eating here all year round, (including me and my family), for the good,...More

We have been back several times for the Formule Midi (plat du jour, glass of wine and coffee) - such good value and always delicious. The staff are extremely friendly and charming. This is a delightfully unpretentious place, which perhaps best serves unpretentious diners ......More

Great little hole-in-the-wall spot on the Nice Harbour. Great view of the port and excellent spot to get your seafood fix, particularly mouses/frites. Service is excellent and this place caters to locals and visitors alike. Nothing fancy but highly recommended.
