Tried this restaurant one evening after passing by during the day and noticing it was busy.
Busy again in the evening.
I opted for their plat du jour menu, 3courses priced at 28euro which I thought was a little expensive for what I got. Other similar menus were cheaper in other restaurants. I had a caprese salad to start...nothing too fancy...simple mozzarella, tomato, olives and a slice of Parma Ham, not a very big portion. I then had a steak which was cooked to my liking but was a bit fatty around the edges...don't think it was a sirloin or rib eye, definitely cheaper cut of beef. Alongside the steak was a mountain of chips to fill the plate up. Don't get me wrong both the steak & chips were nice enough just a bit dull presentation wise. Dessert again was average.
My Husband selected a pasta dish which he enjoyed but not a terribly large portion.

Service was average, bit of a wait between courses and sometimes difficult to catch waiters attention.

An ok meal but maybe expensive for what we got.

I thought I could remember a time when the ladies of the night seemed to loiter a bit closer to the airport. Now it seems anywhere is up for grabs - does this reflect more workers ? Is it migration ? The area around this place was certainly buzzing on the last Friday in August.

We met some friends there. They have a place close by so are regulars. We'd not been before. Didn't sit outside because of reports of impending storms. Pleasant enough table, decor feels slightly dated.

Dated also seems to apply to the menu, which is extensive but not wholly cutting edge. On the plus side it does make it easier for a mixed group to eat together. Decent food, good recommendation re wine.

Good atmosphere too and plenty to keep you occupied outside.

Service - first impressions not great, improved as the evening passed.

Very, very disappointed that the owner seemed a complete puss cat (it won't led me add the "y" to the end.

Lots of positives, including long opening hours. No fireworks, but one to go back to.

We stopped in after fireworks on Bastille day. Once we were seated and ordered our drinks we were privvy to quite the display; the owner screamed at his employees the hit a bread basket so hard it flew across the room. The staff looked horrified, and picked up most of the bread as quickly as they could. Drinks & a show! We wanted another round but the server brought our bill with the first batch of drinks and ignored us soon after. We now refer to the incident as "Th ol' Bastille bread toss" ;)

This is one of restaurants whose kitchen is open all day long. It is an excellent restaurant for those who want to eat a little earlier. We ate here on three different occasions. The servers are fantastic. They are helpful, friendly and efficient. The food was very good on each visit. Some of the foods we had were steak, bouillabaisse, escargot, salmon, and calamari. We were never disappointed.

Had many meals here over the years but they vary, some visits the food is good others disappointing. However, July 2012 they are on a "good time", we only had mains, a spaghetti with giant prawn (huge) and scallops, which were soft and not over cooked. And also had Grilled Sea Bass with pesto sauce and a selection of vegetables. Service was friendly, food good and sat near window on Promenade des Anglais looking out to sea. Will visit again.
