I read that it’s hard to find a bad restaurant in Nice, and I have to say that has been my experience. This was one of the best things of the best. Friendly service, great food all at a decent price. The seafood in particular is wonderful, and the profiteroles ever bit as good as I had read in other reviews. Locals as well as tourists in this intimate restaurant. I would recommend a visit.

Friendly staff, excellent food & wine, had to juggle tables to fit us in, but no-one seemed to mind.

We were searching for ages for somewhere nice to eat near our hotel in Rue de Belgique. This was the only one we fancied in the area. It was a really good choice. We went there two nights running.
We shared a pizza the first night with a pitcher of rosé wine. The second night we had pasta dishes which were excellent. The Merlot by the glass was so nice.
The staff were very friendly. It had a great atmosphere but does get very busy.
They do a three course set meal if you want it but otherwise choose from the menu.

It is very good. Their set menu has good choices with some of the plats having a little extra charge. The entrees salad nicoise and the Greek salad were both excellent. The Marmite [nothing to do with the British yeast extract of course] du pecheur [26.90€ an extra 3€ over the base for the full menu] was extraordinary. It is a mixed seafood stew in a tomato sauce chock full of fish, snails, prawns, clams and mussels. The ratatouille served in a little ceramic covered pot was delicious and the mixed vegetables were good- they are two of the accompaniment options that are included. The deserts such as panda cotta with strawberry and raspberry were very tasty, too. The house wine [4€ for 25cl] was fine.
They are open both on Sunday and Monday when most restaurants aren’t, but not Tuesday evening and Wednesday. It is a small place and a little past 19:30 it was full so arrive early- they open a little before 19:00.

It is not easy to find a local restaurant in a touristy place such as Nice. This was a lucky find. Unpretentious with relaxed atmosphere, tables crowded but we did not mind. I had a feeling most clients were local. Excellent pizza, excellent mussels. Moderate prices. Good service. The only drawback are working hours. They are local too - at 14:30 they were already closed for lunch so we did not have a chance for the second visit.
