We were surprised to be able to get a table without a reservation however, it appears that no other diners had reserved either. Maybe we should have realised why this restaurant was empty when we arrived when other restaurants were fully booked. Although we enjoyed our starters my main course of lamb shank was extremely disappointing because it was very... More

Service is not great here, slow, unattentive. This seems like just another one of 47 tourist restaurants! out of 7 dishes total, no one had one that was great. The best things were the chanterelles (but they were TINY and not mixed with other dish ingredients), and an artichoke soup, which was mostly cream so of course it tasted good... More

This restaurant with both front and rear entrances is a hidden gem. The front section is busy and lively while the rear is better for the romantic evening out. The food is beautifully presented from both set and a la carte menus and the wine list is extensive. This was our third visit in two years and it has been... More

An outside table for eight in April - slightly chilly but was fine with heaters. In a small alleyway in the Old Town it felt very French. Good food choices and quick and friendly service.

We return. We had New Year's Eve dinner here and ate here several times throughout 2016. The waiting staff are professional and attentive and the catering staff know what they are doing.. I really enjoyed my top quality steak cooked to my sort of perfection. The wine list is not extensive but it is a quality list and reasonably priced... More

When the cheapest bottle of wine on the list is pushing €35 a certain standard of quality might be expected. This is a classy and comfortable looking restaurant, with friendly staff and a nice atmosphere, however the food fell well short of expectations. The Jerusalem artichoke soup was tasty but over-rich and became cloying after a few spoonfulls; again the... More

I have been wanting to go here to eat for some years so finally booked for a Saturday night as from the outside it looks lovely. What I didn't realise was that there is another 'annexe' which they take you down the side and around the back to another part which isn't the same as the main restaurant. We sat... More

This used to be my favourite restaurant in Nice and I often recommended it to people visiting France. I had brought my brother for what I expected would be a special meal , what a disappointment .

The restaurant is quite narrow with mirrors either side to deceive the eye. Vibrant red chairs - which were pretty comfortable. The staff were very friendly and we actually chose our whole meal from the " starters" which on the whole was lovely.
