While searching for a restaurant this one looked attractive and fun. All I can say about it is that everything about it was spectacular! The service, food and wine choices, ambiance was perfect. We are total foodies and this meal was an absolute treasure. In addition the prices were quite reasonable for such high quality food. The chefs and the wait staff work in perfect harmony, super helpful and attentive at the right points. A little off the beaten path in a residential area and very worth the short walk!

A mere ten minute walk out of the old town is the lovely little restaurant serving creative, sophisticated French food. Everything is home made on the premises and every dish features a combination of interesting ingredients that are well balanced. Real thought has gone into this food. The waiter will translate and explain the entire menu into English. He also has a fine appreciation and knowledge of wine. The smoked duck appetizer I had is one of the nicest things I have ever eaten. Prices are really reasonable. Walking home we saw everyone crammed into mediocre touristy restaurants and I just can’t understand it.

Unless you were looking specifically you might well miss this gem of a restaurant as it is out of the tourist path. But if you have one restaurant to visit in Nice, please make it this one! The team of chefs and front of house staff are young and vibrant, truly caring for the menu and the wine list. Quentin is an outstanding host with excellent English, offering to talk one through the whole menu at leisure. The food is a gastronomique delight with an amazing blend of textures and tastes. Enjoy every moment! Spend time here and never rush. Enjoy the duck and the tuna - remarkable!

I rarely give 5 stars but the staff is either so young and ambitious that they deserve it. Romantic and discrete atmosphere, really high quality food and a good dose of courage and prospective (from the movie "Ratatouille") . C'est Parfait

We were there on Saturday the 25th of August. The food was great, the staff was friendly and kind.
I had the anchovies as starter and the tuna as a main. Both were delicously cooked and presented. The quality/price ratio was very good. This place is highly recommended :)
