“Big, Tasty Portions”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

Really enjoyed our dinner here. My husband wanted pizza and he said it was delicious and very big. I had the lasagna which was served with a salad. Again a very good portion and it was one of the best lasagnas I have ever had! We had a lovely bottle of wine per the waiter recommendation. The restaurant is downstairs in a very comfortable cool stone cellar. Very friendly service and great prices. Highly recommend!

“Good food good price but poor service”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

There is a great House red here and we loved the food but the service was terrible that day - Possibly a bad day for the lady but made our trip quite tense. Got a good reputation but needs to work on service to maintain it.

“Hearty, tasty, filling and friendly”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident. We were struck by the fact that there seemed to be a lot of locals and menus only in French. It seemed very busy and we had not booked but we were able to take a table for two on the street. That was perfect as it was a warm summer night. We took the EUR25 menu and were very happy. Portions are generous and very tasty, Service is friendly but meals take some time as it obviously a very busy place, that didn't bother us in the slighte as we were happy to take in the cheerful and noisy ambience and by the third curse we were grateful to have a bit if time to digest! I'd happily come back.

“Its not just the best in Antibes”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

..it is amongst the best restaurants in the world. Some reviewers complain they cant get in. You cant get in cos its brilliant And far from being a 'tourist trap" it is usually full of locals like me. It even closes for August so thats how much they rely on tourists. It does vary a bit if the chef de cusine leaves because most of the cooking is done on the wood burning oven [ the brulot ] and its a skill that takes some learning. For years Christian was the brulot chef but he left a while back and the new lad took some time to get it right but he is more or less there now.

It is a long way from posh and it is not ponced. You will sit very close to your neighbour in the small rough and ready upstairs bar that looks like a junk shop where the brulot itself is and where the locals usually prefer. Downstairs are vaulted cellars and some prefer that. I am not one of them. I put the hat on the lamp in the upstairs bar ten years ago btw and no one has moved it since.

Heres a tip - if you want your meat "well done" dont go there. The duck breast must be eaten rare, if it is the best duck breast you will ever taste served with a white sauce and sauteed potatoes that are to die for themselves. The entrecote steak is magnificent, giant shrimps in pastis, fish baked in the brulot with different sauces to taste, sanglier [ wild boar] with round salt potatoes [ a speciality when available and the first meal I ever ate there fourteen years ago], tripe Nice style is great The menu is amazingly extensive. Start with soca the Nice variant of pizza made with chick pea flour. The rose pichet wine is rough and ready but flows down. Good reds from €20.

Another tip; if you like space, peace, quiet, fawning waiters, a reverential ambiance, nouvelle cuisine and white linen tablecloths stay away. If you want a fun evening with some of the best food you have ever had go there.

I suspect people will kill me for this because frankly we dont want all these tourists in the place [ go to the Brulot Pasta next door and think its this - I am sure half the reviews are for the much bigger Pasta and not the restaurant - the Brulot Pasta is OK but not great ]


This review is based on at least 100 visits. It will not be to everyones taste but I never get tired of the place.

“Le Brulot”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

Tiny little restaurant on side street - so popular all the year round - solid French country cooking with very generous portions. Slightly squashed together tables but that all adds to the jolly atmosphere. Not a restaurant for a light meal!
