This is a nice restaurant if you sit outside. Inside it is too busy and captures the theme of a some circus attraction or kids ride. The breakfast was just okay..not fancy. The lunch is better, but you need to sit outside if the weather permits.

The whimsical dining room is certainly different than most and certainly worth trading in the option of outside eating, even when the weather is at its best. The service was attentive and friendly. The menu was interesting and extensive enough to suit all tastes. The food itself was well presented, although lacking a little seasoning, although the lime cheesecake dessert... More

So many other better options in Nice with more resonable prices. Cold bread and sealed refrigerated butter served at first at dinner.. Uninspiring starters and desserts and the untasty beaf fillet for main was undercooked at first, and simply not that good when served again. Terrible accoustics as well with a child screaming next to us the entire dinner. Avoid!

My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to lunch on Sunday and booked a table for 1.30 pm. We were met at the door by Thierry who took us through to the restaurant and explained a little about the hotel. He was very pleasant and friendly. We were seated next to the stairs fairly squashed and next to a... More

During our stay at the Hotel Le Negresco we had our daily breakfast at the La Rotonde. This is a very particular and lovely location. We loved it.

Ate here during our stay a the Negresco. We ordered in advance the Coffret Cadeau which included the three course menu, 1/2 bottle of wine each and coffee. All three courses were very nice as was the wine.

This is a very quirky restaurant with a unique feel. The decor is designed to reflect a merry go round; I've never been anywhere like it before. The food was very good ( though certainly not cheap) ; service was very good and very attentive. The gambas roties are highly recommended. Overall a very good restaurant but although it is... More

Fantastic waiters, so professional. The atmosphere in La Rotonde is something to experience. I have tried better food in my life, but the food is very good to the price. I would recommand it to friends & family who are going to visit Nice.

Since the Chantecler was closed during January, we had a dinner here one evening. Nothing special, but okay.

A décor filled with vibrant colors, an 18th century carousel and its wooden horses make La Rotonde a very unexpected place. Dedicated to families, it is a warm and bright restaurant where it is pleasant to linger after a delicious gourmet meal. A simple menu and yet full of creative surprises. From the first sunny days, its terrace opens onto the sea and the sun.
