“Excellent food and ambiance”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

The restaurant is directly on the Promenade Anglais in Nice, across the street from the beach. This is a mid to upper-end restaurant, with prices to match. The service was very good, and the food was excellent. We (my wife and I) had Guacamole and Foie Gras for appetizers and then salmon and Duck ala orange for the main dishes. All the courses, including dessert were delicious. The atmosphere, and service, were relaxed and informal.

“Wow!”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

An amazing evening at Koudou. Unlike UK, you have tasting menu without the whole table having to. I started with a glass of Champagne, the. Foie Gras with large glass of Sauternes, then half a Lobster, rice and vegetables with lobstet bisque saice with a large glass of Sancerre, then 3 cheeses with a large glass of Bordeaux and finally lemon sorbet with Vodka. An amazing meal but bill arrived with 2 extra glasses of Champagne! Shame as felt they were trying it on! Service was superb too. Reasonable priced for Nice and well worth a visit!

“French food in a African restaurant”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Good service and also a excellent diner. We had the entree for one person but it was so many we can eat it together. Also the tiramisu was great.

“Delicious food, slow service”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

The seafood is cooked to perfection at Le Koudou! Had the scallops and king prawn, and it was completely delicious. My mouth is watering writing this review! lol

The service is slow, kind of the french way, where each meal is a long affair with big pauses between the entreé, main and dessert.

Speaking of dessert, this is another thing Le Koudou does fantastically. I really cannot fault their food at all!

The bill was a bit on the pricey side, but in this case, it was more than worth it.

Would definitely eat here again when I'm back in Nice.

“How do you spell the word "Service"???”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

On arriving in Nice for a week, we decided to try Koudou and on our first attempt, were extremely impressed. We decided that it would be our regular dinner meal stop for the duration of our stay. The first two nights were absolutely great, the food fantastic, service really good and location ideal. That's about where it ended. On our third evening, the staff had obvisouly changed and that's when their wheels came off! We waited over half an hour for a waiter to attend to us, went up to management and asked if we could please get some service, which still seemed to have no impact. Whilst a waiter was setting the tables for dinner, we were quite obviously in his way and occupying the last table he needed to set. He promptly picked up a chair and hurled it towards us, as though trying to give us a clear message to move on! We still went back for the fourth night, hoping that maybe we had one bad experience and service would be back to normal. Well no such luck! It really is a pity that such poor service and bad attitude of the staff, including the manager on duty, would mar a potentially really good restaurant.
