We had a lovely dinner celebrating a milestone birthday. This restaurant was recommended by the chef at Bistrot Gourmand (closed on Sunday). The dinner was outstanding and the service pitch-perfect. The seafood tasting menu featured calamari/squid in light thin strips in a salad with avocado and tomato; a very tasty crabcake salad and a whitefish sourced from Corsica. My fried... More

Very tasty and pleasant fish restaurant, located in front of Nice Port. Perfect for a casual dining to enjoy the local cuisine with a touch of class and a welcoming atmosphere. Beyond the delicious fish recipes, the restaurant offers a nice choice of wines and Corse cheese

The port area in nice is always worth a visit, and Menu du Jour at Le Bistrot du Port was superb value for money. Two excellent courses with a pichet of very good red wine and coffee for €17 each!

Quite a utilitarian looking restaurant, but full to the brim on a balmy Monday night in November. The bouillabaisse was delicious, mixed grilled fish more hit and miss. Lovely wait staff made us very welcome...and the puddings were delicious.

We arrived on a very, very rainy day and made straight for this little unassuming bistrot, where we'd been before. Despite the place being pretty full and our not having a reservation, they found us a lovely table. The waitress pointed us towards the lunchtime menu, which was great value (including coffee and a quarter of wine) and delicious. I... More

I was looking for a good restaurant to dine in when visiting Nice soon. I telephoned this venue as the food looks amazing and on the whole it has some good reviews. I won't be going there though - on trying to make a reservation the staff member complained he was too busy, so on requesting the email to make... More

We had a lovely outdoor seat and the Port area is very pretty - although the motorbikes coming up the hill can be noisy for those who are sensitive! The staff were very friendly and helpful. I really like the local wine selection, including corsica!

Lovely restaurant in a great location overlooking the port. We enjoyed a really nice meal here, it's slightly pricey, but then everywhere in Nice is, but the food was worth every penny and the chef took pride in serving great food. Service was excellent and very friendly. When we return to Nice we'll definitely be returning here.
