If you go to Nice, you must visit the Lechner family's restaurant. It is unlike anything we have seen anywhere in the world. But if you want food and an ambience that would be like a real French home, this would be it. If you want a brightly lit place with artistic nouvelle cuisine presentation swiftly made and served, other... More

A family (father in the kitchen, daughter serving) run restaurant with exceptionally good food. Has a limited wine selection (3 regions) and will not name the brands but guarantee all will be good. Very "grandma" interior design with thousands of miniature bottles. Note: cash only!!

Stumbled across this place whilst going for a meal elsewhere. Thought it looked nice so made a reservation for the next day. Filet of steak specially from Nice was perfect. My girlfriend had a specially made pasta dish which she loved. 100% worth a visit

We walked by it one evening, checked out the menu (and TripAdvisor reviews which are mostly really good), and decided to eat here for my birthday dinner the next night. We asked the hotel concierge to make us a reservation, and she had never heard... More

My wife and I stepped into Gargamelle restaurant to receive a warm welcome from a family member running the restaurant. It is a small and cozy place filled with interesting paintings and unique antiques. The menu brought close to the table on an easel had a good variety of salads and main courses. My wife and I were very happy... More

I made a reservation at a restaurant nearby for the wrong dates and they were very rude. So, I came across the restaurant nearby and decided to try my luck for a table. It's a family business whereby the mum and dad are the chefs while the daughter will serve all tables. They were incredibly friendly and the food were... More
