To start, we are not the 'complaining types'. Actually, we don't like being very critical about restaurants at all. But this experience was so very bad, that we want to protect other restaurant-visitors for the same experience. First of all: In 3 hours they only serve our amuse and first starter. So we where very hungry at that time :(... More

One of the most extraordinary places I've ever visited. It was mostly based on show, and not on the food they serv. Good staf, interesting service, but very regular food that you can always order in restaurants with less price. I didn't like the atmosphere of the restaurant, it there were not enough light, the table was not served as... More

This was one of the more expensive Valentine's Day special offerings in Nice. I took a chance taking my foodie sweatheart there and it paid off as she got blown away from the very first course. The occasional table side cooking with liquid Nitrogen was entertaining, fun to witness and very tasty. Ultimately, it's about the food, which is impeccable,... More

Extremely creative food in most instances a work of art however just a little too fussy. At the end of the meal I am not sure that I like the molecular gastronomy experience. Excellent service.

This is a highly ranked restaurant . We made a reservation long in advance and expectations were high. We did not know it is all about molecular cooking show .... Much of the staff attention is about the show - seems the pre-requisite for hiring is experience in acting and repeating the same explanations each time a new customer enters... More

We went for dinner on 23rd December for my daughter's 18th birthday. We reserved and were welcomed by the wonderful waiters and waitress from the moment we arrived. We have always wanted to try something a bit different and this promised to be our first taste of molecular gastronomy! It was an eleven course delight. Each course was presented by... More

I had heard of Aphrodite and wanted to experience the molecular gastronomie experience. I made a booking thanks to points gained from "spending money"!...Unfortunately the deal with this company didn't allow us to sample other than the "a la carte "menu...so we did. The food was very good but the amiable, baritoned voiced waiter/ maitre D....made the meal and the... More

I don't understand how their lunch menu is so inexpensive. Super interesting dishes of very high quality. The interior decor is pretty 90's but that doesn't matter as you'll be staring at your plate the whole time anyways. Service was fantastic. You'd be hard pressed to spend 31 euros in a better way.

This is the best meal we have ever had... We are from California and none of the 5 star restaurants even compare! Fabulous service and a memorable dining experience. Memorable!

We went here for a fabulous lunch, a lovely setting with a gorgeous waterfall and outdoor seating. We opted for the set lunch, it came with a pre course of a deconstructed egg mayonnaise, then a gorgeous risotto with quail, a lightly cooked fish, coconut and lentil dish followed by poached figs in red wine. The dessert was too sweet... More

Description
Located on Boulevard Dubouchage in Nice, Restaurant Aphrodite combines a potent mix of vibrant energy, exciting nouvelle cuisine and seriously stylish customers to create what has become one of the most innovative restaurants in town. Popular with a chichi corporate crowd during the day and discerning diners at night, the modern Mediterranean dining room is dressed in burnt orange and cream colours, and is decorated with contemporary artworks, sleek chairs and lemon-hued lighting. The kitchen at Aphrodite is renowned for its bold cuisine, and signature dishes include the fillet of beef roasted with pine needles and served with apple mashed potatoes; the pigeon roasted with cumin and rosemary served with Chantenay carrots; and the fillet of Saint-Pierre roasted with liquorice, pistachio nuts, purple artichokes and lemons.
