Our favourite Friday night haunt. Food is top class. Great Starters. Thoroughly recommend the squid, which includes small octopus. Beautifully flavoured. Kay had anchovies last Friday and they came with a fried egg. Strange mix but it worked very well indeed. My preference for main course are the kidneys or calves liver but to be honest we haven't had a... More

We went to the Comptoir with some friends who know the area well and have dined there many times. I had them look fish which was perfectly prepared and delicious. My friend Dianne had the duck which she said was very good. The service is friendly.

I managed to convince my friends and family that this was the place we should have lunch at. And I ended up looking like a... More

Finally, a place in the old town of Nice that delivers top quality food in a relaxed atmosphere. The theme is definitely taste and quality over quantity, so there is room to work your way through a full menu.

Highly recommend this bistro. Right in Old Town, and it oozes French charm. Food is authentic, well-priced, and excellent. I had the 3-course menu with duck and house terrine. Service was excellent as well. Reservations are ESSENTIAL.

Fabulous food and staff. A decent room to eat in. Open kitchen. Bustling and lively atmosphere. They have 4 or 5 restaurants now in Nice and having tried a couple of the others I can recommend them all. Its just very very good... and not crazy money, so feel free to go midweek!
