Very good japonese_french food. With a nice link to the french kitchen. You can see the lady chef kok working hard in the kitchen. If I am back in Nice I will eat hear again.

That amazing restaurant have been one of my favorite for several years. Once a native French guy had recommended it to me as a "wonderful Franco-japonais experience". So, the kitchen and the attitude in this place is wonderful. I suggest to take set menu, because that's the best way to find out how does that mixture of cultures look like.... More

I live in Nice and I enjoy going back to Ma Yucca whenever I get a chance - I've been there over 10 times and have never been disappointed. Although the dinner menu also offers a good deal (30 euros for 3 courses), I go more often for lunch. Love the presentation, the fusion of Franco-Japanese flavours & ingredients and... More

Always delightful, mmmmm all round. Eat there frequently and consistently great. Modern Japanese home cooking cooking style and presentation but with French ingredients or twists. Nothing faddy or fusiony though, everything works deliciously. The set menu always has choices and variety. Often a simple vegetable dish is a delight, or just overall umami has you coming back for more. And... More

Not right on the busiest part we just came across and was getting late. Menu was unusual as I'm not familiar with Japenese food other than sushi. All of the dishes listed ingredients which was helpful even if some of them then didn't look like you expected. We hadn't booked and after 8 it got really busy so unless you... More

We are Japanese but from Sweden. We had been missing good Japanese dish for quite some time now.. and most importantly, of course, the service level that you get in Japan which you don't get anywhere else in the world. This place definitely has both. We felt so comfortable dining here with kids. Excellent food and service. Highly recommended.

A cabbage & pork amuse-bouche sounded like a very dodgy start to a birthday meal, but was delicious, and a sure sign that more amazing food was to come. The ma yucca salade was very tasty, not as original as I expected, but with fresh ingredients and a undefineably good sauce. The main was superb. A sushi revisited, with the... More

Where to start? Decor is not much but tables are nicely spaced, very comfortable chairs and very friendly, efficient staff. The 30 euro menu is a good deal, short, but with interesting choices, plus daily specials. An additional supplement on a couple of things is not appreciated, however. Both of our appetizers were very good, excellent, in fact. A fish... More

We go there often and we're never disappointed. Everything is fresh and inventions spring eternal. Vegetables are crispy and crunchy. This is not a sushi restaurant but when they do offer sushi, it's not the sushi you eat everywhere else. Last time remade the mistake of going there before our movie and the served us fast but it would have... More
