Interesting dishes with Japanese twist. Charming service. Need to book as small number of tables. The Asian beef tartare was delicious and have the to die for black sesame ice cream with pomegranate. Meal for three with 2 cocktails and bottle of wine a respectable 150 euros. Good value

What a find! We loved it so much we went to Ma Yucca twice. Each time, the food was amazing, the atmosphere was cosy and warm, the service was attentive and the prices very reasonable. We are returning to Nice next year and will definitely be back!

Very small, and the cuisine closes early so beware and make a reservation.
In our plate, I felt that the "fusion" was more on the side of French than Japanese food, but still a very good integration.
We had a platter of appeterzers which were excellent and more asian style. However, the mains were more French (a beef tartare that had nothing asian (yet, excellent nonetheless!), and a bavette with mashed potato. Don't get wrong, food was exquisit, however, we didn't feel the nippon much in our mains, (appertizers and deserts though were very asian.)

Small but ok wine selection, very nice presentation & excellent food quality for the price bracket.
Absolutely recommended, make a reservation.

around 100E for a champagne glass + beer, 2 appertizer plates, 1 red wine bottle (ok) 2 meat mains & two deserts.

Cooking and presenting french food in the japanese custom, plus adding some strong influence of japanese cooking, results in a very attractive menu, nice decor...and reasonable prices

For me this was the best meal of my days in Nice. So far (day 6/10) we've been here twice and the food has been exquisite each time. We've tried the duck, both meat dishes, the fish carpaccio, the creme brule and (last and BEST) the chocolate fondant. All has been the best of each we've ever had. The price is high, for us (inc pre-drink and 3 courses) between 71€ and 94€ but worth every cent. Try it!
