Went with friends to try this out.......so wished I had not bothered! Cold food and not a goid choice - tuna - looked good but that was all - not a place to return to. The staff were nice.

We dined here on August 4th, 2015. The waitress was surprisingly friendly and food service was quick for France. We were able to finish our dinner in 2 hours. Ha ha. Yes. That's not too bad for France. Beautiful setting in outdoor garden. If only...More

Grabbed an early lunch after a stroll around the old town. Good variety on the menu. It wasn't busy, and it took longer than I expected for food to arrive. But, it was really good, generous and well prepared. It felt pricey, but without much...More

We ate here three times this holiday and I would go back every time. The food is divine and the service is impeccable. Don't be put off by the wait as the end result is certainly worth it. Lovely. Really lovely.

We dined on exceptional french mussels and gnocci .. Matched with great local wines.. beautiful flavours and delicately cooked.. couldn't fault this food. Casual restaurant but quality cooking.. great prices.. tucked away in old Nice and cool in the narrow streets.

Quite possibly the worst service I've ever had. There were only two members of staff on a ridiculously busy weekend evening and they were one of whom was doing all the work while the younger was swanning about being arrogant and patronising. Took over 2...More

Really cool bistro in the old town. Spare yourself from the tourists traps on the platz. Traditional bistro fare, and although they do Pizza I'd recommend the traditional French stuff. Attentive and efficient staff. Awesome value for money. For me, this is what eating in...More
