I dine at Divino at least once a month and I can really appreciate the restaurant for what it is, a "casual chic Terrace fine-dining experience" with a view on the "animated" La Croisette Piazza. The menu is creative and varied, makes use of many different local and Italian ingredients, combines interesting savors, both the Italian and Mauritian touch is omnipresent in a most elegant fashion. A sommelier will assist you with the aperitif and wine pairings, and you can enjoy a variety of nice "digestifs" after diner (amaretto, single malts). The service team are well mannered, perfectly groomed, and skillful, they take pride in serving while respecting the art and rules fine dining service. I can only congratulate the owner and his brigade for the pleasure they offer "a la carte" and I encourage all to try this restaurant before any other at "La Croisette".

“Top class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

I have been several times now and always had a great experience. The risotto is the best I've ever tasted, the ravioli delicious and the salad fresh and tasty. Of course the wine is always beautiful and if unsure which one to have you can always get good advice from the owner or staff. This restaurant is excellent value for money so go in and take a look at the menu. Also, there is a small delicatessen shop where no matter how much or little you spend you always get the best attention and advice. Children are always welcome or they can run around in the square safely while you relax and enjoy your meal.

“Awesome Pasta!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

Had lunch there today for the first time and since I wanted something light, went for the spaghetti with garlic and sun-dried tomatoes and it was mind-blowingly good! Simple, yet full of natural flavours. Especially with roasted whole garlic gloves instead of usual chopped one!!
Also had the sliced raw fish salad (Carpaccio - with fresh 'vielle rouge' or 'wrasse'). I was hesitant at first but it was fresh, no fishy or strong taste. And everything topped with freshly made iced lemon green tea (no sugar for me). Super refreshing on this super hellishly hot day! I wanted wine but since I was driving, didn't want to risk it. But they have a nice selection of wines and other liqueurs.
And, very friendly, attentive and thoughtful waitress and chef!
Will DEFINITELY return!
