“The very thing that makes you rich makes you poor”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

There is something sadly poor about this place. There is no doubt the area is superbly rich, massive houses and gardens all surrounded by huge walls, gates and barriers. It's like there are folk who have such a lot but protect it as in a bank vault. Then there is a splendid coast absolutely fabulous with paths, vegetation beaches etc. some of the best on the Cote d'Azur. The restaurant is a rather sad and miserable flop, is overpriced and very mediocre with dreadful arrogant service, almost distaste for the customer, only when the bill is presented do you get a smile. The whole place is a contradiction between extreme affluence and mediocrity.

“Paloma is better”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

Spent the day there. It's bigger than Paloma so more people around you. The view is not as nice. The food is cheaper but not as good. Service is great though. Overall it does not sustain the comparison with Paloma. A back up plan if Paloma is full I would say.
