My mother in law and I ate here on our last day in Nice (06/07/13) as we wanted to eat in the old town.
We saw that a lot of places in this area offered a set menu price for their meals and all of which were very competitive. We chose this one on the basis that they looked as though they had comfortable seating and a good space to relax outside. Quite often you see a very packed seating area in France and due to back problems, I try to go for places that have comfy looking seats!
We had a waiter that spoke perfect English and he had been living in Nice for about four years. He also lived in the UK as well. He was very friendly and accommodated my embarrassing French speaking!
I ordered from the three course set menu which included a small bowl of spaghetti, salmon with rice and a chocolate mousse (you will see from my other reviews in this area that chocolate mousse is a favourite of mine!).
All three dishes were of great quality ingredients and tasted fabulous.
My mother in law ordered the king prawns (I had one and they were really tasty) and she shared my chocolate mousse.
Unfortunately the wind got up a bit and they had to take down some of the parasols but I still enjoyed sitting outside at this time!
I have read some other reviews on this restaurant and cannot understand why someone would choose not to eat there because of tourists? Seems rather standoffish to me but I suppose if you only want to eat 'off-the-beaten-track' then this restaurant isn't for you. We sampled a lot of French food whilst we were there and this restaurant is very pleasant, the staff are friendly and make an effort to speak with you.
Of course they are eager for tourists to eat there...this is how a restaurant in prime location makes money!
Cost was around €55.00 for one set three course menu, one main and a glass of wine/soft drinks.
