Went on our own and returned two days later hosteb by friends who live in Nice. First the food. Outstandingly fresh with a wide selection of oysters, clams, shrimps, whelks and various other fruits de mer. Service was "edgy" but caring. The waiters knew their seafood and their wine....... but, as always, it helps to speak French.
Net, this is a French seafood par excellence with its quirks. Go and have fun and fresh oysters!

We were walking around and just payed attention to a crowded restaurant and people eating seafood. Impossible not to notice! :) So we decided to try it as well. As it is always fool the service a priori is far from good. But I guess the seafood is fresh (tasty - obviously), as we were ok after :))
It is a famous place in Nice as we got to know later, so I think everyone comes here while promenading the city. I enjoyed much!

As a person who grew up near the sea, i can judge the quality of seafood pretty well. This restaurant offers amazingly variety of fresh seafood. We tried the shrimps, oysters and dorade fish. It was fantastic. It tasted so good. I was really impressed.

Should you ever find yourself in the beautiful city of Nice and would like to try quality seafood cuisine then the Café de Turin is the right place for you. This restaurant is by far the best sea food destination I have ever been to in all my years of travelling. From the moment I set foot in the restaurant, made my way to the table and took a look at the menu, my mouth was like a waterfall, the anticipation was killing me whilst also indulging in the atmosphere, its warm and friendly and has that pleasantly French feel to it. The Café de Turin is a seafood lover’s haven, which boasts of the freshest fish in the city and I am definitely not one to disagree with that statement. This place is unpretentiously all about seafood, in fact there is not much else on the menu. People come from far to try the widely popular oysters from Café de Turin, even the locals boast of their excellence. Located in one of Nice’s most beautiful places, the Place Garibaldi, tourists can enjoy first class seafood whilst indulging in the wonderful architecture and history of the magnificent city.
