Great unassuming restaurant - doesn't look fancy but is in a lovely setting on the Burgundy canal, with great simple fresh food, drinks and first class service. Having found this restaurant on trip advisor we had a much needed break there after a long arduous cycle from Chagny. We enjoyed the ambiance of the place so much - the lady... More

The chef is a master bouillabaisse maker. But do not miss his starters. They are appealing to the eye, very inventive in pairing of ingredients and delicious to the palate. If you are lucky, he may share his fabulous bouillabaisse recipes.

Me and my boyfriend enjoyed a two course dinner with Wine here. Fish soup starter is great. Lovely view, family atmosphere and friendly staff. A good nice port-choice!

This seemed a rather down to earth choice down at the port with a crowd that I know frequents "in" places. So this was a wonderful surprise! Loved the atmosphere, being greeting warmly by the harried staff. Took awhile to get ones attention to order food, which was duly done (including taking dessert orders up front which was a bit...

We had a very good dinner but somehow kitchen and service does not match. We were very well greated and drinks and entré came out duly, but then nothing happened for 30 minuites. Didnt help that I called the waiters. And when the main course eventually arrived, wine had not been served. Very strange behavior and no excuse from the... More

It's expensive and basic, but incredibly popular for good reason. A meal for 2 with wine will set you back about 125 euros, but the dishes are elegant and subtly flavoured and the fish is super-fresh. You need to book, but only 48 hours before. Outstanding.

Third visit over two years. Not fancy but quietly very classy serving excellent food. Staff and owner are professional, friendly and welcoming. The food has always been superb. No doubt the chef is quality. We've had most of the fish dishes and really can't fault it. Great flavours. Give the restaurant 48 notice and they will create a Bouillabaisse you... More

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
