Got lured in with seat in the sun and several knock back from 'good' restaurants as we had no booking. Went for 3 course menu which for value was OK. Food was basically dropped on the table by waitress on her way somewhere else. Crepe starter was ok.Best I could say about mains and dessert is that they were were... More

Cozy place, the service is cordial and fast. We've tried the "Socca" which is a local speciality. Tasty, but the slices of part ham were served with the plastic film/cap, which is kind of disgusting in my opinion. So I wasn't impressed, I've ate in places where this wouldn't happen for the same price range.

The place is obviously a tourist-trough based on a fast come-order-eat-drink-go principle. When you are offered a menu for under € 16, you can't really expect anything special. What you see (and pay for) is what you get. But it was ok. We ordered two menus. I had a ham and bacon crepes for starters and duck with mushrooms and... More

Many tourists gave a poor rating yet our experience was much better. We walked around the old city and many restaurants are over-priced. We saw guests having big pots of mussels and the price was not experience and thus we decided to give it a trial. The mussels are good, service is good and most importantly the restaurant located right... More

One of the really bad tourist traps in Nice. I don't why me and my friended up there as residents in Nice. Maybe because the sun was shining at a table. We ordered the 3 course menu for 15,90€. The starter (Gallette) was acceptable the rest was awful. An uneatable steak and a tarte aux pomme that was dry and... More

Do not go here. Its tempting because its in a nice location in Nice but just trust me. Spend your money elsewhere. The meal was so-so with overcooked, bland mussels but the real kicker was that the waiters tried to steal the customers' change. I saw it happen to two tables where the diners called the waiter back to tell... More

Ordered two pizzas and a side salad - one pizza arrived 5 minutes after the other and the majority of the base was doughy & undercooked. Side salad was some leaves swimming in a foul pool of dressing.

My family and I spent a week in the Cote d'azur and decided to spend our last day in Nice. Every meal we had so far was delicious so decided to take a chance and have dinner here as the location was lovely. We got the salmon x2 and the mussles in garlic and a white wine sauce....at least we... More

The location of the restaurant is good and it is the only good thing about it. It is very crowded and you can not enjoy your meal in this rush of waiters. We did not get what we have ordered. Muscles were below the average, socca was bad. Waiters seem to be friendly and funny but they are sometimes annoying... More
