Food was ok but not excellent. We were almost 90 persons which of course had an effect on quality. Main course was a bit too cool.

It looked OK ,many people dining there so I sat down at a table.The service is slow and sloppy and I ordered two of the "chefs suggestions" and was looking forward to Rognons de Veau sauce Armagnac.What eventually arrived was a disaster. Tough and gristly kidney with a few grapes in a sauce which may have seen a bottle of... More

Good address, nice "balcony" out to the street. The kitchen is indeed fine and the waiters nice. This would have been very good if the service would have been faster AND if the air inside the restaurant would have been fresher. It feels a little bit damp and and that unfortunately takes down the whole experience.

We were extremely satisfied with our meal. The food was delicious, however the service wasn't the best. We had a two hour dinner because it took the waiters so long to take our order and then bring us our dishes. I believe this is due to the restaurant being understaffed. We'd return for the food.

Fabulous meal at this restaurant, as Nice is not the cheapest of places to visit, stay and eat in this was a treat to have a good priced set menu with great food and generous portions. Good service and wines were not overpriced either. Would recommend and would revisit in a heartbeat. We visited on a Saturday evening and there... More

Sat on a wonky table so moved. Pre booked a round table at front to be sat at the back. The staff have no idea when it comes to professional... More

Came to this restaurant as it looked nice from outside, I actually booked it 2 days previously and asked for a paricular table at the front and I was told this was booked. Turned up to be given a table at the back (horrible position) and a table top that was not fixed properly to its legs causing it to... More

We were a party of six, seated, like everyone else, on the terrace. The food was agreeable, on the whole, though a number of dishes ( pasta, truffle custard, risottos) were rather too rich. Our enjoyment, however, was marred by a very loud, very present in-house musician, who played keyboards and sang, and then who moved on to saxophones and... More

Central placed in the old Nice this theater restaurant has the old Nice atmosphere and also many actors are coming. The nice is very good, service nice and general good. This is not a "tourist" place, many local comes so if you want the real stuff, this can be recommended.

The food was great. It was beautifully presented, full of flavour, and felt authentic. I felt troubled by the owner. He's a pig. He ruined dinner. Telling the service staff off. Hassling everyone. It was like he was drunk.
