If you plan a visit to Nice, don't forget to make a reservation at Jan. It's the best place for a diner in the afternoon! It's not cheap but worth every euro. Go for the chef's menu and they wil surprise you with the best of the chef. Together with the pairing wines and it wil be an evening to... More

Jan-Hendrik van Der Westhuysen is a South African chef who runs a one-star Michelin restaurant in Nice. Visiting in Monaco with sister and brother in law when we went for a truly memorable evening.

Been in nice for 15 years. I should have been here before but didn't for no particular reason. Absolutely fabulous and the best value for money you will find. Food and service (and wine) without fault. Not just the best in Nice but one of the best anywhere. Thank you.

The dramatic dark interior is a perfect setting for lunch or dinner. My husband and I both had set menus with wine pairing. I forgot to mention I didn't eat meat before our amuse bouches arrived and they were instantly whisked away, without a moan, and returned to me free from animal products. There were delightful South African touches like... More

I'll preface this review by stating that my husband and I love to visit Michelin Star restaurants, being in Nice we were super excited to try this one. Well... the food is good, but it's not "wow" good. I was very disappointed to see that even though we traveled to Nice during high season (July), chef Jan was not even... More

The dark interiors of Restaurant Jan create a dramatic setting for the glistening, richly colored and deeply flavorful food which arrives from this creative, young and consummately professional kitchen. Evoking the Dutch interiors of his native South Africa's architectural heritage, the restaurant's setting in Nice's old town echoes the streets of Cape Town, emphasizing the rich blend of culinary traditions...

Perfection would be an understatement for one of the most wonderful culinary excitement my wife and I had in a very long time... The service is impeccable. My wife treated me for my birthday, i will definitely not forget this one!!! Please try the chef menu
