Simply excellent modern French dining. It was recommended by a local and the first night we tried it was fully booked, so we made a reservation for later in the week and we were not disappointed. The menu is typically presented on a board and has plenty of choice and variety. The smoked fish salad starter, topped with a fried... More

Small, well-run bistro, excellent menu, engaging service, in a small street parallel with the Promenade des Anglais - would recommend.

After a poor start, two in a row! This is a bustling uncompromising bistro serving hard core local food. And its great. Rabbit Terrine, delicious and a portion size that would have done for a day or two over there and rich mussel soup with gnocchi over here were both superb. Duck breast for both of us came with properly... More

Very friendly place with small tables and lots of caracter. The food is top notch and with great service, a bit on the higher side on cost but well worth it. We had an early supper and arrive at seven o'clock to an empty resteraunt but within ten minutes it was packed. It is situated in the old town close... More

It is a typically Frech bistro with excellent food. Menu is on a board and it's all in French. Book or otherwise you will be disappointed. I didn't give it my full 5 stars because the service was a bit rushed. We had a 3 course meal in less than an hour. If I can put forth my suggestion to... More

Le Bistrot d'Antoine was excellent. My Gambas appetizer was layered over sauteed Leeks with a garnish of Lardon. The roasted duck breast was a work of art. Everything about the presentation and the food was beyond expectations. We learned of this restaurant int he old town from a traveler we met in a restaurant in Paris. She visits Nice frequently...

This little place is perfect for a delicious authentic French dinner. The tables are very close together and the place is very noisey. The staff are running all around to provide good service. Be sure to make a reservation because it is small. The food is what you what you would expect in French restaurant , a little heavy, but... More

OK, its a bit pricier than the average bistro, but then it provides fine dining home-cooking. Amuse bouche was a small sardine tin filled with rillettes, and toast. Carpaccio of scallops, foie gras, air-dried veal, all were delicious starters. Mains were risotto with artichoke and seafood, veal kidney, beautiful cod. Portions are generous without being over-facing. Good list of local... More

People talk in quite reverential tones about this place but they do seem to be right : the food is first-rate. We showed up without a booking around 9pm one evening and we were lucky enough to get a table outside on the small terrasse. Apéritifs were served with a sardine pâté and some olives. The main courses were magret... More

The downstairs part is also good but very busy. service is excellent, food choices and specials of the day are... More
