You might be wondering why there are so many 5*. Well, I cannot stress how great this place is. If you don't go whilst in Nice, then go back to Nice to come here. I don't know why there are even 4*.
The owners are...wonderful and it feels very personal, they got to know you and it was like visiting family for a meal except the meal was outstanding.
You can contact the owner for a reservation through Whatsapp, which is a must because it's always full.More
Went there for a dinner with two friends and it was as delicious as it always is. The owners made changes for the guests to feel safe (shields, masks, distanced tables..) without compromising on the delicious food and the table service. The atmosphere always feels...like being at home, the owners are very welcoming and warm without being invading.
We all had half a duck which comes served with delicious foie gras on toasted bread and potatoes that I believed is cooked in the duck fat. We had an amazing Vaqueyras wine and were recommended amazing digestives. This place is a little gem!More
We always love visiting Marie and Jean Michele. They have built something really so special. As locals, it was important to us to visit as soon as the lockdown in Nice was lifted and they opened for guests. It was marvellous as usual! Marie went...to such an effort to make sure everyone was safe and comfortable. And the food! It was like a warm hug (since Marie couldn’t give us one herself as usual!) Duck and stuffing and delicious wine. All washed down by Armagnac at the end. Please do visit them. This is exactly the sort of local restaurant that needs support these days. You won’t regret it!More
We were going to make a reservation this morning but we both forgot.
So I looked on Tripadvisor this evening and found the 2nd rated place to be intriguing.
Keith was like no way... but I was feeling lucky. So we headed out, but then...it took us forever to find parking.￼
Turns out the place is the size of our dining room, an accommodates￼ about 20 people. You need to book way in advance.
However, because we’d been driving around forever looking for a place to park, we showed up after the whole thing had started.
Two of the ladies were finished and on their way out, and so they let us join the party. And party it was! Their specialty was duck. It was cooked to perfection in true Southern French cooking style, and it tasted like nothing I’ve ever had before.
There was duck, stuffing, fried potatoes and frois. ￼
There was absolutely￼ no way a person could finish. But it was so wonderful you wanted to￼ try. Everybody was laughing and talking to each other and the wine was flowing.
It was a husband and wife team that ran the place and they were absolutely charming. What a great evening.
Perfect way to end our stay in Nice!￼
Call or text in advance to make a reservation- you do not want to miss this!More
Go here and have a night you’ll never forget. Marie and Jean-Michael will help you choose food and drinks in a fun and incorporating way. The restaurant is small with a familiar ambiance which allows neighboring tables enjoy each other’s company. Also, the best duck...I’ve ever had.More
This is truly, truly a wonderful find.. we had the duck and the lamb shank... what a treat on the tastebuds! Beautifully cooked and sprinkled generously with love!.. the cherry on top with this place... Marie and her husband, genuine, lovely and wonderfully warm! Great...hosts to our first night in Nice!! If she had the availability, We’d be there again tonight!!More
Just eaten here with my girlfriend, we both ate the duck. Not only was the food amazing but Marie’s service was brilliant. She was very friendly and made us feel very welcome.
Was a meal I will not forget
