“Just stick to the Menu du jour”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Generous plate of salmon a l' aneth and skilfully cooked daurade (supplement 2 euros) were enjoyed. Desserts fairly mundane, including industrial ice cream. Hence opted for cream cheese and honey. This is not a select establishment.....they tout for custom with leaflets thrust upon one, and fail to hand you the advertised Menu du jour whether you are a local or a tourist UNLESS YOU ASK FOR IT , but it was a reasonable experience in a tourist crowded area

Dear client
Je vois que la nourriture vous a plu ,mais qu'il y a des petite chose qui vous ont dérangé . Les menus sont affichés partout dans le restaurant et de plus ils sont donné en même temps que la carte au client ,des fois dans la précipitation il peut arrivé qu'ils soit oubliés mais c'est toujours avec plaisir que nous réparons notre oublie . Pour la glace industriel ,c'est quand même de la carte d'or qui est est la glace la plus chère sur le marché et qui en générale fait d'excellent produit et pour le fromage blanc au miel c'est un produit typiquement français qui en fin de repas est lègé .
Merci pour votre avis et espérons vous revoir rapidement chez nous .

“Worst dining experience ever”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I'm a young student in Nice with my girlfriend. I wanted to treat her to one high-quality meal while we were here b/c that's about all we can afford on our budget. They sat us at a table next to the bathroom with such little room in between us and the pathway that we were bumped into by everyone passing by to us the toilette. The waiter was rude and unhelpful when we tried to interpret the menu. Then they decided to seat someone right next to us, and mid-meal asked us to move our table even further into the path to the bathroom! The waiter paid us no mind while we sat there miserably until finally we got up and moved all of our stuff to an empty table nearby. Even then our waiter didn't come by to check up on us. Avoid this terrible place at all costs.

“Nevet try, if you like eating good quality of food!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Burned and obercooked paellas, and cheeky service! We had to wait for 50 min for our dinner, and got this kind of food. The rice was burned to black colour, the fish and mussels were dry. When we signed for the waiter the problem, he told that this is the paella at Chez Freddy... It's a pity!... We couldn't eat that thing, but had to pay a lot for it! Because above these, the restaurant was so expensive!!! The place's know-how is: rip-off tourists...

Hello dear customer
I am sorry than you don't like the paella .But we we cook the paella with the originally recipe in the oven .it s a mixt cooking and many people come to chez freddy to eat the paella like that . It's true the paella it is burn on the bord of the pan but its what it is good. 95% of the other restaurant made boiled paella and don't never have problem with customers ,but much more less taste.
We sold more than 10 000 paella every year and chez freddy exist since 1987 .
I hope to see you again and invite you for a glass of champagne

“Chez overcooked and overpriced”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Service was ok, if not a little too keen to help you buy, but disappointing when you have to ask twice for the lobster tools......overall, overpriced and all of the fish was overcooked. VERY expensive for what was served, and beware the hardsell out in the market place. Will not be rushing back, so buyer beware.

“The best thing about this restaurant is the thoughtful service”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

The restaurant appeared very promising in the "Vieille ville" and the flat screen TV at the entrance runs mouth-watering pictures of sea-food plates they serve. Our servant was wonderful, thoughtful, quick and very accommodating to whichever wish our little children fancy. We were very hungry and ready to eat anything, but unfortunately, the sea-food wasn't cooked well with a distinct fishy aroma emanating from it. The pasta itself was done well and the paella was very greasy. Far from typical provencal french or italian cuisines.
