The meat is just really good, they know how to cook it! It's a really nice place for a lunch... It's not far from Garibaldi, Vieux Nice or the port

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.
