Stumbled across this place whilst going for a meal elsewhere. Thought it looked nice so made a reservation for the next day. Filet of steak specially from Nice was perfect. My girlfriend had a specially made pasta dish which she loved. 100% worth a visit

This is a family-run restaurant about a block and a half off of Place Messana. We walked by it one evening, checked out the menu (and TripAdvisor reviews which are mostly really good), and decided to eat here for my birthday dinner the next night. We asked the hotel concierge to make us a reservation, and she had never heard... More

My wife and I stepped into Gargamelle restaurant to receive a warm welcome from a family member running the restaurant. It is a small and cozy place filled with interesting paintings and unique antiques. The menu brought close to the table on an easel had a good variety of salads and main courses. My wife and I were very happy... More

I made a reservation at a restaurant nearby for the wrong dates and they were very rude. So, I came across the restaurant nearby and decided to try my luck for a table. It's a family business whereby the mum and dad are the chefs while the daughter will serve all tables. They were incredibly friendly and the food were... More

After passing loads of restaurants on busy plazas and not wanting to be a part of that scene, my sister and I found this little treasure whilst on our way to the Old Town. We popped in on our way back and we were so pleased we did. The woman who greeted us explained about it being cash only before... More

We went to this restaurant a few nights ago after having booked on the phone in the day. We had walked past it before and were intrigued by the decoration. We arrived at 8 p.m. to be the first in the restaurant and the owner (run by husband and wife, husband cooks) and she was delightful, helping us with the... More
