The place was packed for lunch when we ate there. Seems like THE place to eat shellfish. I ate several things that I had never eaten before (sea nails, etc), but it was all good. Be careful not to over order - portions are large.

Large selection to choose from the menu. The sea food dishes are a must. Recommended this restaurant to a couple we met on a tour. And the feed... More

There are many restaurants of the same type in the area and we randomly chose this one. Food was nice and tasty, the seafood spagetti was made of fresh pesto sauce and tasty olive oil. Recommend this place to the seafood lovers

Meal was cooked well, however very overpriced for what we had. The most expensive meal we had in Nice, and not the best. Also we got very cold sitting outside as outdoor heaters were too far away from one another.

Very welcoming first impression, but the servers were unpolite and looking like "do I need to be here, when does my shift end?" If I was the manager, I'd had a staff meeting about the overall service. It is not ok if some are friendly and make their customers no 1 priority, and some don't. The customers notice these kind...

The area that the restaurant is in is beautiful. The food that was being eaten outside on platters looked lovely. This is why we chose to eat there. Unfortunately the food we were offered was not.

This restaurant is on the quiet and shady side of the main square but all the better for it. We enjoyed an excellent lunch with grilled sardines and a large salad nicoise. Both dishes were really fresh with a generous serving of sardines. Recommended.
