Good decent homemade food, not super cheap, but absolutely reasonable. Hostess made us feel very much at home event though we were clearly the only tourists in the place. Can absolutely recommend it.

We visited here on our first night in Nice. It was a very small intimate restaurant, with a few locals in. The food was amazing, I had the beef strips and my boyfriend had the risotto. Both were great. For dessert we had two of...More

Great little family run restaurant. I'd highly recommend the salad with foie gras. The price was very reasonable for the food we had. A four course dinner for a party of four along with a bottle of house wine came to €128. Try it for...More

We were there for dinner yesterday. The food was delicious (and freshly made), the service very attentive. Great value for money (especially the 4-course "menu du chef" for €28). Location: certainly "off the beaten track" in Lonely Planet's terms - great. Anytime again. The high...More

Good little place well away from Nice's endless tourist trap restaurants. There was no filet steak left on the night we went (tuesday), but apart from that we enjoyed our meal here. I rated Le Dauphin Nicois 'average' only because tripadvisor still doesn't have a...More
