Walking one day from the Port to Carrefour TNL and passing this restaurant I noticed an odour of something delicious being cooked there; I was quite sure it was rabbit dish.
Went back soon after with my wife and we had the delicious rabbit stew, prices were very reasonable service friendly and not intrusive, a very nice little restaurant. We happened to get a table without reserving but it was the last at 12.30, So I recommend probably booking!

This is a small, very french restaurant, located 4 tram stops from Promenade Anglais and a very worthwhile journey. Run by a husband-wife team, you can taste the passion for food, local ingredients and hospitality.
Menu changes daily, but the 4 to 5 complete 3 course meals suggested by the restaurant all feature products of the terroir. We asked for wine pairing, the owner was knowledgeable and made a nice choice.
The atmosphere is wonderful, french bistro style and the food exquisite. Portions were more than ample, so ensure you manage your capacity to accommodate desert (may be an idea to split the salad).
Top quality, reasonable price (80Eur for 2 with good wine): a bargain for this level of experience in Nice.

I read the reviews on TA and then asked the concierge at our hotel, HiPark, for his recommendation. He had this at the top of his list and was a self proclaimed foodie. He has proven himself. This was a cute, small, boutique restaurant close to the hotel with a limited but creative menu and good wine list. It was reasonably priced. They used seasonal and local ingredients to create original fair. The Foie Gras was house made and really good as was the cheese plate. The entree specials were also very good and to end it... one of the best molten chocolate cakes I have ever had! The house manager was very polite and explained everything about the menu and the kitchen was open, neat and organized. The chef has it together. Food came at a very reasonable pace. We would go back here!

A restaurant de quartier, very popular, run by a couple of young enthusiasts! We come there on a regular basis, either to spend a romantic evening, or to have dinner with friends. Before it was open for lunch time, and for dinner time only twice a week, but now, they are open in the evening starting from Wednesday. The chef changes la carte regularly, it is not enormous, but there is always a choice between fish, meat, poultry or a salad. Every day, they have a plat de jour, never expensive, and always very good. A choise of wine for any taste and budget.
