We ate inside at this recommended restaurant. We found a number of options to choose from in the traditional French menu... beautifully presented food.... The wine list was a little limited for my taste, but offered a good selection by the bottle rather than by the glass which is what I wanted. Many of the guests were French, adding to... More

I visited this restaurant 3 times during 5 days. I was very satisfied each time. Food was really good, the owner and the whole team were very nice and interior was ok - quite reach, but not overwhelming. They also have a nice selection of alcohols. Whole staff spoke English so I didn't have to try to use my poor... More

Lovely setting and enticing menu. My big issue with this restaurant was that I had to send both my starter and main back, although once replaced the food was delicious. The pan fried foie gras on my first course was over cooked to the point that it was dry and rubbery (I could tell just from looking at it, so... More

We booked Le Grand Balcon well in advance as we has such a large party. The only option we had was to have a set menu. The food was tasty, but overpriced. We had very fresh tomato with mozzarella and pesto to start, followed by a fairly standard sea bream with mashed potatoes and veg, and for dessert a very... More

Food was ok but not excellent. We were almost 90 persons which of course had an effect on quality. Main course was a bit too cool.

It looked OK ,many people dining there so I sat down at a table.The service is slow and sloppy and I ordered two of the "chefs suggestions" and was looking forward to Rognons de Veau sauce Armagnac.What eventually arrived was a disaster. Tough and gristly kidney with a few grapes in a sauce which may have seen a bottle of... More

Good address, nice "balcony" out to the street. The kitchen is indeed fine and the waiters nice. This would have been very good if the service would have been faster AND if the air inside the restaurant would have been fresher. It feels a little bit damp and and that unfortunately takes down the whole experience.

We were extremely satisfied with our meal. The food was delicious, however the service wasn't the best. We had a two hour dinner because it took the waiters so long to take our order and then bring us our dishes. I believe this is due to the restaurant being understaffed. We'd return for the food.

Fabulous meal at this restaurant, as Nice is not the cheapest of places to visit, stay and eat in this was a treat to have a good priced set menu with great food and generous portions. Good service and wines were not overpriced either. Would recommend and would revisit in a heartbeat. We visited on a Saturday evening and there... More
