Went here with one of my domestic staff to bring her out for a treat. What a treat! Regine has to be one of the best chefs in Nice and is assisted by her trainee waiter Nadim. The food was as good as ever. All...accompanied with top quality wine and olive oil. We bought one of the olive oils to take away. It will remind us of Regine and Nadim whenever we use it. Overall an outstanding meal. We highly recommend this restaurant.More

Loved this small restaurant in the heart of vielle Nice. The owner is clearly passionate about olive oils and delights in sharing his finds with his guests, alongside a homemade menu of his family favorites (including his mother’s recipes). He accompanies each dish with a...distinct olive oil and explains the nature of the oil AND the people who produce it. It is obvious that his love of oil is closely tied to his love of the producers and takes great pains to highlight the products that are locally produced in small batches. Every dish was wonderful but I particularly loved the vegetable lasagna, which was so well balanced that I could taste each fresh ingredient, instead of being completely obfuscated by mounds of cheese as so many other interpretations are.More

We happened upon this gem very hungry while wondering the back streets without a lunch plan. Our luck turned into one of the best meals during the trip. Don’t let the proprietor’s “we’re just an olive oil shop” fool you that the food will be...parse! My group was well fed and had one delicious option after the other. The atmosphere is light and turns an olive oil education into a seriously fun afternoon. While the food is delicious, the olive oil is the main course and simply outstanding. Very much recommend and look forward to returning.More

We always visit this gem of a restaurant when we are in Nice. It is more an olive oil shop than a restaurant. And the menu is limited. But the food is wonderful. The salads are fresh and flavorful and the main courses are designed...to showcase the shops excellent selection of olive oils. It’s a bit more expensive than the run of the mill tourist restaurants but the quality can’t be matched. It’s well worth the few additional Euros. Reservations weren’t needed this time on account of Corona, but usually it makes sense to book a day in advance. Bring cash because they don’t accept cards.More

Another restaurant we came to based on a recommendation. Unfortunately we’d just missed the lunch time service so we booked for the evening. Arrived early and we were greeted with a warm welcome by the owner who proceeded to explain that his passion and main...business was selling olive oil and went on to elaborate how this fit into his wonderfully diverse menu. Before ordering we got to try several different olive oils with bread which was really nice. We ordered a mozzarella salad and the hummus both delicious and very filling. A really nice little restaurant here in Nice and the owners were both so charming. Definitely recommend! The only thing that spoilt the experience for us was that we were sat next to a frightful American couple who continuously asked the owner annoying loud questions (like ’why aren’t there onions in the salad?’ And checking that there shared dish meant they only got charged once not twice!) I seriously had to bite my tongue. But that wasn’t the owners fault or anything he could control. If anything as we left he gave us an apologetic smile. Poor man...there’s always one!More

Best service and one of the best restaurants in Nice! The aubergine starter was incredible and easily shared between two people. The range of oils on offer is impressive and the owner lets you sample a wide variety accompanied with a charming anecdote. Fresh local...produce used throughout the meals. We had the sausages and lasagna for mains which both had an incredible tasty home cooked charm! Highly recommend and we will be back to eat and buy some of the oils.More

Went here for lunch with high expectations after lockdown. Nadim and Regine are very welcoming and make you feel at home. We shared a starter of Dolmas de Blettes, and for main course had Ablama et Stoemp and Lapin sur Pates. While we waited for...our starter we had bread with Frantoio olive oil. The Ablama was seved with a drizzle of Fruite Noir. The food was incredible and exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed a couple of glasses of delicious Corbiere red wine, which was inexpensively priced. What an experience! We are already planning our next visit.More
