We arrived at around 500 in the afternoon. We had a hungry five month old and my wife started breastfeeding as there were no staff to take our order. We ordered a round of coffee and cakes and were told if we are not eating we had to go; and had our menus snatched away and were told 'go'. This... More

Didn't eat a meal here purely because of time limits. Coffee excellent, patisserie excellent. Order a beer and expect it to be served with a small dish of the most fantastic olives. Staff are welcoming and helpful, service all that you would expect in France.

On our first day in Nice, we were just exploring with no particular plan in mind. We ran across Cafe Opera, and it was the good, easy lunch that we were looking for. I had been looking forward to a Salade Nicoise for some time, and I was finally able to get a good one here. We sat on the... More

The food was inedible. Truly awful. Service was very slow and not so friendly.quite expensive. The idea is good the practice is woefully inadequate which is a pity.

Cafe Opera is a restaurant located in the center of Nice, where you can go to breakfast. It is a little and nice place to breakfast or to have a drink.

On a nice day, eating outside on the Cours Saleya in old Nice, what could be better? We weren't that hungry, so a Salade Nicoise and a bowl of Bouillabaise hit the spot. The food is good, but not exceptional. Service is friendly but over-burdened, Ambiance is great.

My boyfriend and I both stumbled across this little restaurant on our first night in Nice. We both fancied a steak and we were not disappointed. The price was very reasonable (16.50) and the cut of meat had no fat on it at all. They were beautifully cooked and the chips were excellent. We also recommend the peppercorn sauce! Wonderful...

Stopped here after a long day at the beach to get a light lunch. We only got Caesar salads but they were pretty good and well priced.
