The restaurant is near the tram station Acropolis in Nice, about 1000-2000 feet from the old town and the bank. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxing, really perfect no matter if the weather were rainy or balmy after a day out around Nice. The menu is not too large but offers specials for meat and fish. Their swordfish and sea... More

The owners are very personable and the food was fantastic. They offer a wonderful selection of local wines and food. We highly recommend any of their fish dishes. Save room for dessert the lemon curd custard is wonderful.

Restaurant is intimate, perfect for couples and small groups. Had a very romantic feel. Owners were really nice and made excellent recommendations for dinner. Exactly what I expected of delicious French cuisine.

Interesting approach to French cuisine where the customer chooses a main and then the sauce and cooking method. Traditional provencial / rhone style fare with a few modern twists. Mostly tourists but a few locals as well. Excellent service.

We visited the restaurant in late September 2015 after reading reviews. We were expecting good food in French style and we got exactly that. Perhaps a detail here and there in the dishes could be improved, but overall we had a great night. Placed away from tourists, more like a local place, expect to sit on old chairs with young... More
