Went with four others and we would say it was the best restaurant we have eaten at in Europe. Yes the potential exists for poor service, but night we were there everything was great. Young and maybe too casual wait staff. I have been to Europe 12 times in the past five years and have eaten at pretty good places... More

The place is cold and does not feel welcoming what so ever. And that is just the start... The condescending and arrogant staff tried to blatantly over-charge us for the French wine and when we questioned them about it they just passed us off to the owner who could not have cared less and then the smug.... gave our mother...

Great menu, graet atmosphere, great taste... If you travel to Nice, should dine here. Extra ordinary tastes of Provence is offered and they have a very good wine selection. Fried Zuccini and pan-roasted fillet were my favorites.

I am a 30 year old french girl, I don't have a lot of money (yet) and Im passionated about food and services. Because I used to live in London and tried La petite Maison there, I wanted to try the "autenthique" La petite Maison in Nice expecting the experience to be even better... I arrived enough time before the... More

The deep fried courgette flowers were delicious, so was the garlic crouton with olive paste and the wine was excellent. But the service was glacial and the main courses average and poor. My wifes Lobster was tough and stringy and the pasta greasy and a strange combination of over and under cooked. Plainly the plate had been sitting under a... More

Yes, the service is average at best. Yes, the delay between arrival to being seated, from sitting to ordering, from order to service and so on is frustrating and sometimes infuriating. However, time after time, this restaurant over delivers. The atmosphere is fantastic. The food, simple but just exquisite. All the negatives become strangely quite endearing at the end. We... More

Visited the restaurant last night as part of a business group. The waiter was the most rudest I have ever experienced, chucking cutlery on the table, throwing wine and water into our glasses which were more often than not always empty. Don't waste your money as they are clearly living off their name. Total complacency and I hope they reap... More

A brilliant restaurant where the staff are working together in perfect harmony delivering a service which is five star. The food is superb and the ambience delightful. We had postponed our Valentines Night out until 8th March and it was a great meal for two by candlelight! On the pricey side but well worth a visit for a special occasion... More

So we had a table booked for 8pm. Arrived and we were left standing there for 30 minutes and ignored while there were empty tables and the lady 'patron' sat and had a drink with people who clearly were more important... we were stood there with two other couples -who were equally annoyed and had also booked a table for8...

Lunch in the sun is great, and it was quiet. Staff not overly friendly, but varying. They have a variety of dishes, but as our American neighbours said, good, but awfully expensive.

Thank vivere2016
