This restaurant was recommended to me by a local guide from a tour I'd been on. It's in the Old Town of Nice, but not on one of the main streets so you need to go searching. I came in relatively early (6:45pm) for dinner, and ordered from the €21.50 menu. I had the salad with cheese and walnuts, the... More

Great little restaurant just off the beaten track. Nice intimate setting where the food is served on vintage plates with lots of love. Very simple and very taste dishes. We had the zucchini tart and crispy goats cheese with almonds and honey to start followed by the truffle ravioli which was a stand out dish for us on this trip.... More

We had 3 excellent meals at similarly priced restaurants. We agreed this was the best. Beef carpaccio, veal steak, smoked sardine and octopus salads were absolutely amazing. We would definitely go back again.

We wanted Italian and the reviews for Carpe Diem were good so we thought we would try it ourselves. The reviews were not wrong and we can't say how great this place is. Particularly because it is away from the hustle of the main draws around Old Town but still has the required feel. The choice on the menu is... More

Simple cuisine but with originality, the menu at 21,50€ for starter + main course + dessert is really good value for money. The place is cute and perfect for an intimate dinner for a couple (especially on Sunday night, otherwise I am afraid the bar in front may break the cosy atmosphere). The staff is very polite and quite helpful.

We passed by Carpe Diem and decided to give it a try due to the tables not being crammed in like many of the restaurants in Nice - the food and service was amazing so a great night all in all! Would definitely come back!

Had a lovely meal here. Up a side street in old town away from the busy squares. Meal was well cooked, tasty and well priced. Ravioli was a particular highlight. Run by lovely people as well. What more can you ask for?!

We happened on Carpe Diem as most restaurants in the old town seemed very busy and we didn't have a reservation. It was our lucky break. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was delicious and so tasty. You could tell that the chef was very aware of flavours.....the honey and almond goats cheese starter was 5... More

The food was very good and it felt like we were eating in an authentic French restaurant. Didn't feel touristy at all despite being in the heart of the old city. We also had wonderful service! In addition, we had a three course meal for a fixed price of 21 euros (I don't think the three money signs on this... More
