A little gem if you can find it-Thai and French Fusion which works amazingly, great service, great location also as off the tourist path and brilliant food each time i've been over the last few years. I'd definitely recommend giving it a try!

We entered Papayou just because we liked the decor and environment, with no preconceived idea of what to expect. It was delicious, simple and a wonderful surprise. Kind and efficient service. The food was a tribute to the local ingredients and savoir faire. We just loved it.

Following excellent reviews on tripadvisor, I took two friends to Papayou 2 nights ago. Food was delicious - but the gentleman who served us was proper rude. His default language seemed to be 'no' or 'no time', in a abrupt and irritated way. We felt us being there was inconvenience to him. Such as shame though - as it could have been perfect.

Delicious food and attentive and pleasant service.
Staff speak English and aren't afraid to use it!
Food is a selection of Asian, French and Italian.
The portions are good too.
We had veg spring rolls (three large), marinated salmon with Creme fraiche.
And for mains Gnocci with sausage and aubergine risotto. All delicious.
Had a drink in the lovely Les Distilleries Ideales bar across the road before, as we waited for restaurant to open at 7. The waiter popped over to tell us they were ready.
I want to go back...

This restaurant offers a fusion (as defined by the French) of italian, french and thai food. The service was pleasant and friendly, offering the choice to sit inside and out and also gave us the time to eat and talk as well.

The food as with most restaurants in the area are simple dishes but cooked well. The choice on the menu is slightly larger than nearby restaurants but good nevertheless with specials as well.

The relaxed surroundings make it a good place to eat without the main hustle and bustle of the main eateries in the Old Town of Nice.
