Finally, a place in the old town of Nice that delivers top quality food in a relaxed atmosphere. The theme is definitely taste and quality over quantity, so there is room to work your way through a full menu.

Highly recommend this bistro. Right in Old Town, and it oozes French charm. Food is authentic, well-priced, and excellent. I had the 3-course menu with duck and house terrine. Service was excellent as well. Reservations are ESSENTIAL.

Fabulous food and staff. A decent room to eat in. Open kitchen. Bustling and lively atmosphere. They have 4 or 5 restaurants now in Nice and having tried a couple of the others I can recommend them all. Its just very very good... and not crazy money, so feel free to go midweek!

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!!

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
