Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were lucky to find this restaurant when wandering around Nice looking for a place to eat. A few ladies were looking in from the window as we went inside, and I overheard them saying ”absolutely adorable”. And that is exactly what this small restaurant...is. Very intimate, like being in someone’s home. The owners are very friendly too, and there is an unhurried, very cozy atmosphere. They have a small seasonal menu of classic dishes. Most memorable dish for us was the chestnut soup, but everything was well made. The dishes are big enough, so you may want to skip lunch if you have dinner here. If you are looking for someplace romantic in Nice, this is it.More

Tainted fish and meat, I am still sick. The carpaccio was so salty that I thought that anchovies were added on top that the chef denied. The tuna was of a grey color. I did not finish it. For the two dishes plus a glass...of wine I paid around 45 Euros. If you want to get sick got there.More

Very happy with our stop here while in Nice. A very cosy French restaurant, very welcoming and friendly staff who ensure all guests have a great time and enjoy very good quality food. Book via WhatsApp or their Facebook group and engage in direct conversation...with the chef/owner who was very accommodating with our requests. Highly recommended, we would definitely go back!More

We booked our table at 7.30 and arrived promptly. We sat outside and after 15 mins we received our menus. Another 15 mins passed and nothing. We went inside and and asked to be served. They said ‘2 minutes’. Another 5 mins passed and we...left. What more can I say ?More

This restaurant in the heart of old Nice was so fantastic! We had dinner & loved all the food. The cod was the best I had during our entire 3 week trip in France. The orange blossom panna cota is the most delicate & flavorful...I’ve ever had. The service was great. The ambiance was lovely. This is a hidden gem! We loved it & recommended it to other people who also went & really enjoyed their experience.More

The experience was not great, there was just one man serving who could not cope the the number of guests so we had to wait a long time for everything. The tomato tart was lovely fresh from the oven but the lamb main course was...a small potion and was like a bland stew, you had one and half tiny new potatoes and two French beans cut in half, when I mentioned it to the chef afterwards he said we should asked for more but why should we ! There should be a decent portion served in the first instance. Over priced and underserved that is how we felt on leaving. Will not be returning.More

My sister and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at this lovely small restaurant in Vieux Nice. We were greeted warmly by the host and the chef, who came out to the table to suggest appetizers and entrees to us. The decor of the restaurant is...very pretty and cozy and the food was exceptional. The wine that was recommended for us went perfectly with our meals. We felt like honored guests instead of customers - such a nice experience!More

What an absolutely beautiful restaurant! Upon arrival, I was blown away by this quaint restaurant's decor and chilled vibe. They played jazz music and the tables are set beautifully and you feel like you're in someone's home! The waiter is fantastic and went above and...beyond for me when booking a table; because it was fully booked on the first time I tried to book, the waiter recommended other restaurants in the area to try. He then booked me in for another day and was extremely attentive and friendly. He recommended certain dishes and wines and went above and beyond to accommodate us. The food itself was lovely - we had the French onion soup and escargots to start, followed by the rump steak and a lovely bottle of rouge Bourdeux wine. For dessert we tried the strawberrys and the raspberry cheesecake: again both exceptional dishes with beautiful presentation. Highly recommend this restaurant for a real French experience!More

A lovely homely relaxed atmosphere, delicious food and excellent hosts. We stayed in Nice for 3 nights and ended up coming here for the first and last nights, it was so good! The pork was exceptional and the mashed potato was the best we’ve tasted!...Between us we had the onion soup, the beetroot carpaccio, the beef carpaccio, the steak, the duck, the veal and the pork. All fantastic. Highly recommended.More

My husband has been going to this wonderful restaurant for over 18 years. He left Nice approximately 8 years ago but still visits his friends here when we are back in town. The food is great and the atmosphere warm, but most importantly is the...fellowship shared by the owners. We hope you will love this restaurant as much as we do.More

A few days ago we had a disappointing experience, when we found the restaurant to be closed, even though we had a reservation since long. A couple of days later we got a sincere excuse from the restaurant, with an explanation as to why it...had been closed. (This reason was apparently an unprefictable emergency situation.) We decided to give the restaurant a second chance, and this time everything was perfect! The food and the wine was superb, and the service was excellent. The restaurant offers a short but very good menue with a variety of meals at reasonable prices. We can truly recommend this restaurant.More

We had a reservation at 19.00 Tuesday night. When we arrived, the restaurant was closed, and there was nobody there. We knocked on the door, several times, and we called the restaurant on the phone many times, but no response. Other guests and neighbors were...also surprised, in a negative way. Extremely disappointing! In case there was an emergency which called for a closure of the restaurant, the least you could expect, would have been a notice on the door, that the restaurant had to be closed that night.More
