We arrived there by pure luck. It was high season, summer in Nice. They made up some space for us and wouldn't let us go... they made us try all the delicious french wine and some nice escargot. I truly felt in heaven that night. So much fun!!! Thank you for one of my best memories ever! I will never... More

Struggled to find a place that served charcuterie platters to share, found this place on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. A little eccentric and tucked out of view but we got what we asked for..... And so much of it. No menu, not even a sign. Asked for red wine and a charcuterie platter and got just that. Good... More

We stumbled across this lovely little nook whilst looking for a place to grab a drink before dinner. We were greeted by a friendly (and hilarious) lady (I presume owner) who helped us pick a nice red wine. We sat outside and she popped down a bit of delicious cheese for us to munch on. The atmosphere is awesome and... More

This little Bistrot is amazing, there is no proper menu, they do a few different things & they do them very very well. I had l'escargot & foie gras, with a few decent glasses of Sauternes wine recommended by the chef. My visit to this place was an eye opener, out of this world to say the least! The staff... More

Went here twice while visiting Nice. The owners are very knowledgable about wine and very generous with their pouring. This is not really a "restaurant" as such but a place to enjoy wine and charcuterie. The large selection of meats and cheeses on the board are high quality and will fill you up! Very different atmosphere and very French!!

My husband and I found this little spot by chance and decided to have a bite after seeing the crowd of people outside. The menu is limited but was perfection in my eyes if you are in the mood for a massive charcuterie board loaded with local cheeses, meats, and bread. The place was packed outside due to local musicians... More
