..just love this place. It's a really traditional nicoise Socca restaurant that is always full of locals. Simple menu consisting of various tapenades, socca and pissaladieres. Great atmosphere and easy to strike up conversations. The service is rapid and the socca is yummy.....a must if you are in Nice and want to sample good socca. Get there early as it fills up quickly

The socca was good for a snack but the terrible service made it not worth it. Came on a weekday afternoon and the place was not busy. Took over 15-20 minutes for the waiter to take the order. Afterwards, the food took a long time to come. There was another couple (who spoke French) who came 10 minutes after us and were served their appetizers and socca before we even got ours. The couple sitting next to us who were eating socca by the time we sat down..had finished their coffee and ice cream before they even took our order despite us trying to flag the wait staff down twice.

This restaurant was a highlight of our visit in Nice, France. This is also the cheapest delicious meal we have had. We went for dinner on a saturday night at 7-30 pm and the place opens around 6 pm I think. We were told that it will take about 30 mins to get the table and an hour to get our main course served. We had already read the reviews and knew what to expect and we were seated in the time frame that was told. There are small bites you can order and wine while you wait for the only dish that is served here, SOCCA. They have just that on the menu and a normal single costs like 2.98 euro I think and the large one like 5.98 euro. It was so worth the wait!!! Parts of India were colonized by the french and we have a similar dish prepared in India but this was perfectly cooked and the best I have had.

If you want to try socca (chick pea crepes) and tourte de blette (swiss chard pie), and pissaladiere (onion pie) go nowehere else.

They are the best in town, because that is almost all they do (they also serve pizza, thick crust).

They are inexpensive and only take cash and they get very busy for lunch, so get there early or late, especially if you have a big group.
