Really enjoyed the food here - authentic Lebanese. Kebabs were excellent - meat really juicy and tender. Service was so appalling it was actually funny - we seemed to get the Lebanese/French version of Basil Fawlty, while other staff seemed friendly and helpful. Belly dancer was very sweet - appreciated by my husband but 2 teenage sons found it all too embarassing!

We were looking for a restaurant that stood out from the dozens of cafes along the marketplace. We stopped here due to its clean, fresh exterior and reasonable prices. We ordered various mezzas (appetizers) for lunch to sample a large number of dishes that were all in the 6-7 euro range. We ordered tabbouli, baba ghannouje, hummos with shawarma, and sujok (a spiced sausage). The dishes were all good size, fresh, and most importantly very tasty. They bring you unlimited lebanese bread to eat with the dishes as well as green olives. Service was outstanding and unrushed. All in all, this is a great place to go for lunch and it appears to be well situated for the nightlife as well. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed a nice dinner at Adonis in Old Town of Nice. Nice ambience, friendly service, and great Lebanese food. I tried the falafel, combo kebabs, and their combo dessert with lebanese coffee. Everything was great. I would definitely come back next time I'm in Nice.

We were lucky enough to get a very friendly and helpful waitress.
Very fresh ingredients. Excellent falafel, tasty mezze and fresh salads. Vegey and even fairly vegan friendly (can generally be fairly easy to find several meat-free dishes on this kind of menu after all). Menu is even friendlier to avid meat-eaters.
Popular destination for celebrations - hence sporadic loud music, clapping and enthusiastic belly dancing.
If you like your meals a bit quieter and slightly less entertaining, choose an outside table and watch the world go by (weather permitting).
Decent wine choice, but not cheap. Cocktails too, however, it must be said, not the best ones I have ever tasted.
Overall, great food and good experience, would definitely go again.

not recommended - its impossible to give zero stars on TA
food was average to below average
Service was terrible - very slow , grumpy waiter .food was cold by the time it arrived.
The waiter tried to rip us off by saying we had not left enough money to pay the bill - presumably he had been expecting a tip and had forgotten we spoke French and presumably didn't realise we lived in NIce
The 'missing' 10 euros miraculously re-appeared when we were able to stand up for ourselves
I would not be surprised if he tried this trick with tourists
