A restaurant that is pleasantly not trying to put a modern spin on the local cuisine or the ambiance. We had the Lotte, the house specialty, which was very good. Our server was very competent, doing some table side work with some aplomb. I would go back next time I'm in Nîmes

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and was only a few minutes' walk away. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. On the down side, the staff were a little reserved and didn't speak English (or didn't offer to) and there was an error on the bill.

Very copious meals served by the owner (a lady who must be in her 70's). Her son is the chef. We like the "Tete de Veau Ravigote", and the home made paté.

I think that's pretty much what you want when traveling. A family restaurant serving Nimes comfort food since the early sixties. We had Duck Foie Gras Terrine, Brandade of Cod, Bourride of Monkfish, several cheeses and Baba au Rhum, with a carafe of the house Rose. Everything was well prepared, although I had never had the Brandade and I wasn't... More

Nicolas was one of our favorite restaurants in our 6-week trip, and we look forward to dining there again. They serve delicious Nîmes specialties on menus at 15 € and 20 €. We loved the gardiane de boeuf (beef braised in red wine) and brandade de morue (creamed salt cod in a pastry shell). They have a good wine list... More

The owner of the hotel where were staying at recommended the Restaurant Nicolas and we were delighted he did in fact we ended up going two nights on the trot. The service was friendly and efficient and food and wine excellent and not expensive at all. On both occasions the restaurant was pretty busy and, as far as we could... More

Food is very good. Fish was perfect, meat as well. I did not like the shallot sauce and poratoes. Everything else very good. Staff very, very nice. Place is modest but confortable. Price/quality ratio excellent (three course menu for 15/20 eur). House rosé decent. Overall would come again.

Looks a family run place with real local charm. Several fixed menus to suit all pockets. Selection of wines (house wine was grand). All courses we had were well prepared and gave a real taste of local cuisine. Probably the most traditional restaurant we visited. Not much English spoken and not much French by us, but not a problem and... More
