We took some friends here as we like this place. They have changed menu as they did not have calf liver this time. We had other dishes and some of us Moules Frites and was as usual very pleased. Some days ago we had French Onion soup which is very recommendable. To our meal we had a white and a... More

A very special little restaurant with attentive service and excellent food and a good wine list. Essential to book as it is always full for dinner. Really should be higher in the rankings. We visited twice while in Nice and both times had a superb experience. We would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

We are French and found this place completely by chance and we were under its charm. it is a small cosy place with a little terrace on the road (summer). Now we go there as often as we are in Nice (3 times so far, lunch & dinner).The carte is not long as all the products are fresh. The cooking... More

Great little restaurant that just happened to be up the road from our hotel. We were really heading to Le Sejour Cafe but they couldn't fit us in and suggested next door as it is run by the same family. We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is very welcoming, the menu is not huge but there is enough to choose... More

Dined at Le Petit Cafe on recommendation from Phillippe at Hotel du Petit Palais. We were totally delighted! The menu is prepared with attention to fresh, seasonal and local produce. Dinner presentations were beautiful with wonderful flavour combinations and an excellent pace to the meal. It offers a lively upscale atmosphere, classy but not stuffy. This place is a gem... More

Didn't book and no problem on Thursday evening, although its sister restaurant, Le Sejour Cafe next door, was booked solid for Saturday by the Thursday!

I'm having together with my wife a round trip in Piemonte and now in Nice region. Yesterday we left our rental car and came to city. This charming restaurant was round the corner from our hotel but we succeeded to get a table without pre booking - I think the last one! Food was great, sophisticated but not too much... More

Stopped in for dinner and couldn't have been more satisfied. The waiter went over each menu item like a master storyteller. The foie gras was perfection. Both the veal with mushrooms and the stuffed Guinea fowl were delicious. The fact that the staff takes pride in their work is evident. Highly recommended.

Thank HappyPaddler
