“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We are staying in Nice for three days and were unaware restaurants being closed on Sunday's . We arrived upon Le Grand Balcon by per chance. I had fillet steak with truffles, it was absolutely stunning. My mum had fillet steak with fois gras, this, was as good as mine. The seasonal veg and mashed potatoes (with black truffles in) were an amazing accompaniment. FANTASTIC.

“Do you like truffles?”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

This is a nice restaurant with good service. The food is really good, well cooked. Portions a bit over sized. Very good value for the money. The only complaint is that they gave us nuts twice though we had told them we have a severe nut allergy. Overall very very good service. I would return.

“Fantastic in every way”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

Can't imagine where some of these reviewers ate?! This is a fabulous restaurant, attentive staff and one of the best meals we have ever had.. And we are pretty fussy! We had the set menu for 35 euros each and what value for money it was. Black truffles starter, duck main course and a chocolate cake to die for. My husband had the lobster ravioli and a pear and ginger dessert, both of which were scrumptious. Presentation was first class too. Merci Le Grand Balcon!

“Very nice”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

The service was top notch from start to finish. English was well received and we were welcomed warmly. The location is close to the Opera House and one block up from the water. Very easy to find and worth a visit.

“Just Ok. Large restaurant with no clear concept.”
Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant, as a group. It was booked for us to have dinner and it was close to the hotel where we were staying. It was interesting that for a group of 16, they set us up in a corner where some people had to move to gibe way to others going to use the restrooms. It is interesting, if you take in account that the huge restaurant was quite empty and there was plenty of space to accommodate everyone comfortably. The food left nothing to my memory and the staff see, to be very tired of doing what they do. Not a smile for any reason. Would never get back there.
