Don't miss this restaurant when you're visiting Nice!!! Off the beaten track, fabulous food, super nice owner who runs the place with his son and wife, and had I already mentioned the fabulous food?? Honestly, where else would you be able to get a flavour of the Mauritian kitchen except for Ile Maurice? Everything freshly prepared and a truly exotic. Couldn't be happier to have visited this place again with the whole family today. Great for kids too, they let you be in charge of the spiciness of each dish :) First time we went is over ten years ago. Still excellent!!!! Don't miss this hidden gem, guys!

Dinner at Saint Geran was the best during our 5 day trip in Nice. Service was warm and personal, and food delicious. Dishes were explained when served and hot sauces warned about.

Children's menu was a set of different typical Mauritius dishes, our children loved their meals and emptied their plates! (Most other restaurants in Nice are stuck to hamburger beef and fries as option for kid's.)

Patron also offered house made digestives (rum spiced with fruit or very hot chili) at the end of meal.

The restaurant is certainly worth walking few blocks away from main streets.

I had a uniquely delicious dining experience at the Saint Geran in Nice: it offers a cuisine that is from the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. This includes French creole cuisine , Indian cuisine without the oiliness/heaviness that sometimes accompanies it, and French cooking. In essence a blend of some of the best cuisines in the world. Its menu is therefore varied but not overpowering.
I went there twice. I recommend the fish dishes (I had a delicious Rougail Poissons i.e. Fish with tomato sauce), and the entrees /starters are wonderful. You must try the Gateaux Piments (the English translation "Chili and Vegetable cakes" does not do justice to the rich flavour and tastefulness of this wonderful starter. And for British and Europeans who like black pudding (Americans rarely do), the Saint Geran's Black Pudding with apple cider sauce is a treat. The ones I have eaten in Britain and Germany are mediocre by comparison. Based on the dishes I have eaten , I would venture to speculate that their other dishes are delicious as well.
The service is attentive. This is not a richly decorated restaurant with fancy chairs and curtains: the focus is on the food and service. The atmosphere is low-key, with island music alternating with soft Indian music.
