It is a funky cool joint to go and try. The food is good. An open kitchen with young and fun people.

We went there for our first anniversary... What a good surprise!! I knew the restaurant by its name and reputation! A little expensive but fresh food with a menu that changes as often as the market offers new seasonal products!! Go for it!! You'll get a good surprise!!

I come here all the time and it is always amazing! Two courses is a necessity! The staff are very attentive and have a great knowledge of wines to help you choose!

Considering how popular the place is, my wife and I decided to swing by just before the lunch crowd hit and boy was it a great experience! While the chalkboard menu was all written in French, one of the servers helpfully translated the entire list into English for us. Eventually, we ordered the Crab Ravioli with Lobster Sauce (a must...

I'm reading these great reviews of the place so maybe my tongue was off its game or I ordered wrong. It wasn't that it was bad, but it wasn't amazing. I love French food and have had way better Magret basically everywhere I've ever had it. It was tough and placed on a basic bed of potatoes and vegetables. My... More

There are three great restaurants in Nice Old Town that stand out from the usual tourist traps. Bistrot d'Antoine Bar d'Oiseux and Comptoir de Marché all three are excellent. We have eaten at all three and never been disappointed at any of them but the Joues de Boeuf at the Comptoir are something special.

We eat at Le Comptoir du Marche on our frequent holidays in Nice and on our latest visit we were not disappointed. We had booked ahead for dinner, and were given a table in the cuisine area - our favourite section! ( Great to watch the chefs at work - amazingly calm!) Menus shown on boards and staff are happy...

This is a busy little eatery with better than average décor for old town. The offerings are all on the ardoise so you have to wait your turn to make decisions. I had the noix Saint Jacques and my spouse the entre cote. Both were well presented and very tasty. However, we found this restaurant was pricey for the portions... More
