Nice is now a lively and talented restaurant town. When we first started coming here frequently, a good 30 years ago, there were a few bastions of fine cooking and lots of forgettable food not even fit for tourists. L'Ane Rouge was one of the reliable venues. Chefs and owners come and go. L'Ane Rouge is still a trusted venue,... More

We went to L'ane Rouge on 14 February. The restaurant was full, the food was excellent - especially the soup sprinkled generously with truffle - and the service was excellent even though the restaurant was very busy. We couldn't have wished for more. We will go again whenever we visit Nice, in fact it's a very good reason to go... More

Various menues, and la carte of course. Tried the Menue Marche. Very good indeed. Great soup, fantastic fish and good dessert. Attentive staff and very good sommelier. Will be back!

You need to trek round the harbour for this one, but it gave us the best meal we had in a week's stay in Nice (admittedly most of the bistrots were disappointing). Simple fare, but beautifully devised. Daurade bouchon was a delectable main course.

I have to gush over Restaurant L'Ane Rouge on the port in Nice. Service is indifferent and completely unconcerned about your timetable, but get over it. Order a glass of wine to start and cool your jets for the main event. The restaurant overlooks the port so there's action to entertain you, day or night (open til 10, even on... More

Weather in Villefranche was very rainy so took 100 to Nice to a restaurant recommended by Michelin. It had to be the worst experience ever. We arrived on time for our reservation and the waiter was very curt on the point of being nasty rolling his eyes and looking at his watch. At this point we felt like walking out... More

For 27 euros, amazing! Too bad it was so empty. I guess no one goes to the port. Really fine cooking. Next night i ate at terre de truffes, which was ghastly.

We walked from the old town to the Port where I had read about this restaurant. The menu is limited and you must order in advance the Bouillabaisse for 2. We did not choose the prix fix menu for 29 Euros but rather a la carte. The staff is extremely young but attentive and the location good. The lighting on... More

We arrived at around 9pm with no reservation but we were immediately shown to a table outside which on a warm evening with excellent views of the Port was great ! Service was prompt but not rushed.

Located in an old house in the port of Nice, L'Âne Rouge and its pretty little terrace are well known in Nice. The food is simple, based on fresh, local produce, yet is chic and refined at the same time. The menu is based around fish and shellfish, used to produce the imaginative dishes of Chef Michel Devillers. Try the courgette flower with sardines served with Riviera noodles; braised sea bass with fresh coconut or parfum of haddock and Chipencornet. Otherwise choose from the great fish of the day selection such as gilthead bream, red sea bream, sea bass, John Dory, all caught by Mr Gilbert the fisherman. As far as desserts go, the chocolate macoranade and the Bulgarian ice cream are irresistible.
