Well decorated place that has the flavor of Rome. Has wide selection for snacks and prices are reasonable!

We ended up here as the menu was in both French and English. Beef stew with gnocchi was good but the Nicoise platter comprised of oily/fatty fritters, tepid omelette squares and stuffed zuccinis, onions and tomatoes with the same tasting filling. Not recommended.

Slow service, rude staff, average food (except the Calzone my husband had was pretty good), definitely not recommended.

Restaurant was busy with locals & tourists and set lunch menu was €17.90 so we thought we would give it a try. It was ok but nothing to get excited about. My husband had the Niçoise salad to start with but it was mostly celery & very little tuna. My steak & chips main was ok for the price and... More

The location is nice opposite a cute church but not the restaurant. Staff not very welcoming. A tourist restaurant to have a quick lunch outside on the terrace.

Went here on last afternoon visiting Nice with my daughter for Lunch . Food was pleasant and service as you would expect from a busy square full of tourists and many restaurants.

Apart from the lovely outlook over the courtyard fountain, this restaurant served us up a very tasty plate of traditional Nice food. This is a restaurant deservedly on the must visit list for the food and wine lover. You won't be disappointed. Great place to kick back, drink some wine and take in the view.

We were with a group of 25 and I was amazed how it was handled. Very short waiting times although everybody has something different. Quality OK, wine OK. The terrace offers a good view on the cathedral and you can enjoy of some Edith Piaf style songs of a local singer.

My wife and her friend had an evening meal here. Her friend had eaten here on a previous visit to Nice and enjoyed the meal. My wife is coeliac and lactose intolerant. She was helped through the menu by their very helpful waitress and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. If we go back to Nice we will have no hesitation in... More
