Nice's best place for a night out. Good jazz groups several nights per week. Spontaneous dancing is likely to occur. The owner is super attentive and has decorated thoughtfully. Wonderful wine selection with a broad price range.

Hand-picked wine by the owner, you don't find them elsewhere. Super delicious sausage plate. (a must!) Salad is a bit pricy (but delicious still!) A relaxing and nice evening with jazz music.

Excellent little place for fantastic wine and great music. Limited but delicious food menu. Manager very helpful with wine pairings. Music sounded more latin but was not overwhelming or loud. Great ambiance. Regret not finding this place sooner.

On a recent trip to Nice we decided to try this restaurant which had been recommended to us. We arrived by French standards early at 6.45pm. The owner was welcoming and informed us there was no food available until the chef arrived at 7.00pm. We...More
