I still go through the numerous photos of each meal we were served by some of the best waiters I have yet to experience on a global scale. My partner and I have traveled all over the world and have dined in... More

What a wonderful experience! The staff were absolutely wonderful and the food was not only delicious but beautifully presented. We requested the Chef's Menu. Can't wait to return Chef Jan.

This restaurant is a welcome addition to fine dining in Nice. Expect the unexpected. Inpeccable service of innovative dishes superbly presented. There are two fixed price menus. We chose the smaller menu with four courses, the highlights a tuna with onion panna cotta , a Bresse chicken and a spectacular dessert of meringue, blueberries and vanilla glacé. And a tray... More

A friend and I were lucky to dine here last week and selected the 6 dishes tasting menu with wine pairing. All dishes demonstrated delicate touches and deep flavours, with some thought-provoking combinations and ingredients new to me - I left inspired and ready to re-enact at home. The service was excellent, with several dishes presented by amiable chef Jan... More

We had dinner here to celebrate my husbands birthday. Everything was amazing, the service, the food, the ambience. We had the chefs tasting menu with matching wine and I cannot fault it - I didn't take photos of most of the meals as they were just so beautiful I just wanted to take them all in and enjoy rather than...
