Stopped here for coffee and croissant. Got local information and felt a relaxed morning with good wifi watching the local farmers market

We had dinner in La Gauloise in our last night in Nice. We had found it from Tripadvisor, reviews said the restaurant is very local and authentic and it was true. Staffs there can only speak very little English and they have no English menu which seems very local, the waiter who serve us was so friendly and very patient... More

We initially went to la route du miam for diner but sadly discovered that the place was fully booked. Luckily the owner kindly recommend us to la Gauloise and in her words this restaurant has the most " clean taste and correct technique " of French cuisine. The food is very reasonably priced. The owner very patiently explained the menu... More

The Gauloise is a family restaurant that I've been going to for years. Fish and local cuisine is what you get here. Every day there's a lunchtime plat de jour, usually fish from the market here that's the best in Nice. If you fancy oysters or shellfish, this is also where to come. Most of the year, it's possible to... More

I was surprised at how good my pasta with calamari (tomato, garlicky base) was, and my friend loved her salmon filet with calamari seafood plate. Good portion sizes. Would've gone back for a second meal but they were closed. Friendly staff too!

We had dinner there and we had mixed feelings about this restaurant because some courses were good other were very poor. The calamari salad was good, the marinieres mussels were unaccetable, the dessert was ok so at the end of the dinner we really had mixed feelings about this place thinking about the big difference in quality and taste of...

A good selection including meats. started with oysters and crevettes which were tasty and fresh. Mains were a filet St Pierre (John Dory) in saffron sauce accompanied by pasta,... More

My husband and I enjoyed a perfectly delicious and graciously served late lunch at La Gauloise last Sunday. We were served a half dozen of the best, freshest raw oysters we'd had during the week in Nice. For entree, I had perfectly prepared eggs in cocotte with mixed greens salad, and then a beautiful white fish with saffron sauce. A... More
