We easily obtained a table as we were having a late lunch. Service was prompt and friendly. I had the grilled peppers with anchovies but so much oil that I couldn't finish it. The same with my pizza, the oil was floating . I managed to squeeze out enough to eat but it wasn't my favourite and if I return... More

We ate at this restaurant on our last night in Nice as it was recommended by our hotel. Service was great and food was really good. I had the sea bream and my husband had the sword fish, both from the chefs choice menu for the day. Both dishes were great. Waiters were attentive, helpful and friendly. Relaxed atmosphere. Would...

This restaurant gives the impression to be a really nice location, but really nothing matches the initial impression. The food is really low quality by french standards, the staff is inattentive, etc. Since we were only on a short stopover, we can't say how the neighbor restaurants would fare.

Great little restaurant, service was great although the waiter didn't speak English. Inside experience was excellent, very cozy and lively. Food was great and the boeuf en daube was spot on.

I'm not sure I want to give this splendid bistro in Nice Old Town the review it deserves, because it is already difficult to get a table in the evening. Nonetheless, I have to say this is a fabulous restaurant that features Niçoise specialities. We enjoyed grilled sweet peppers with olive oil, garlic & anchovies; a salad of young artichokes;...

The atmosphere and food was amazing. Met with an old friend and it was the perfect place to eat and talk. I had the artichoke salad, white wine and friend had a pizza. It was so delicious and a very friendly place. You must go if you are in Nice.

We sat down at our table and although it was busy we didn't expect to have to look for our own oil and vinegar to go go with the bread which arrived only after the fourth time of asking. The young waiter only had the cheek to suggest the wine vinegar was in fact balsamic. After pointing out we knew... More

Stopped in here with my other half for lunch. Communicated with the waiter in English what I wanted(did also speak French)... what I wanted didn't arrived. A more expensive version arrived. Fair enough.....but considering its quite an international place, I thought he would have made sure he understood me properly, otherwise, why not confirm in French?!? Delicious, fresh seafood.. But... More

We chose to eat inside as it seemed to be more local. Fabulous atmosphere- great waiters and fab service- so helpful with a good sense of humour. We ate here on two nights as we loved it so much. Good menu for all tastes. Just so local. A step away from local tourist Restuarants.

Thank Suesa1
