We found this little gem in Nice's Old City (Vieux Ville) the first time we visited, years ago. They are open from Noon till 1:30 and 7:30 till 9:00, Monday through Friday only. The menu offerings change each week. It seats about 20 people. Obviously, reservations are necessary. Others have written that they have found openings just showing up, but... More

A small busy charming restaurant tucked away in Nice old town. A perfect stop for a lunch whilst exploring the older part of Nice or dinner in the evening. It does get busy and the recommendations to book should not be ignored. Tables are long refectory types so be prepared to be elbow to elbow with other diners and possibly... More

What more can I say, we always go every time we visit, great value, great food and great company, what eating out is all about. Whether lunch time or evening, the menu is the same and the same price...€17, best value south of Paris!

Great value for daily specials; includes starter (entree), main (plat), and dessert! Small selection due to fresh preparations, but the menu is planned so all choices pair well with each other. Small, but atmospheric restaurant. Go! Run! don't walk... Currently, dinners require reservations 2 weeks prior; lunch is a little more flexible between 24hrs to 48hrs advance booking!

First you have to find it! Second much better if you have booked a table. Not only is it tiny, it is a sought after gem of a place by both residents and travellers (like us). We like Nice and the Old Quarter very much and this after our second visit is now one of our two favourite places. Intimate,... More

My husband and I wanted an authentic Nicoise dinner and were advised that this was the place to go. We were told it can be hard to get reservations ( that is true), but we booked a table when we first arrived in Nice. It is closed Saturday and Sunday! We had lunch today. The menu has three or four... More

This very small restaurant serves absolutely delicious great value lunches and dinners. The menu is short but each dish is wonderful. Book early in your Riviera holiday to avoid disappointment!

A friend recommended this restaurant as a must and we weren't dissapointed. It is difficult to find a table, you must make a reservation to be sure, since it is rather small and has very limited working hours (only 3 hours in the evening). However, we were lucky and found a table with no reservation. We sat in a table... More
