This is a small restaurant that is easy to pass by. Had been advised to go there and book a table. Booking is needed as it is a small place. Food is fantastic. You can watch the cook in action. And the waiter speaks English too ;-)

No secrets here, you can watch your food being cooked by Michelin starred chef in front of your eyes in a professional and calm way, don't expect high class comfort but do expect the very best of locally sourced tradional food served efficiently by a waiter/ owner? With a dry sense of humour. Certainly best to book during the day... More

This place has a high and well deserved reputation for local produce carefully chosen and well prepared to make the best of what's available on any given day. It's fully booked every evening. The peculiarity goes further when you're sat on low, though comfortable stools cheek-by-jowl with your fellow diners. The night we were there, most people appeared to find... More

La Meranda is a local restaurant with a perfect food. The chef is extremely professional and the waiter is kind. Don't forget to try flower which is a good start and beef stew which was perfect. If you feel cold in autumn evening vegetables soup is best choice.

We went here for dinner on our first night. The food was simple but very tasteful. It was local and very authentic. The waiter was friendly and very serviceminded. Unfortunately I missed music at the restaurant, and I felt like the atmosphere was a bit weird. Also they were using spongebob squarepants water glasses. That was corny.

The corgette flowers were delicious, the daube was good but was rather small on the helping side. I shared a table and met a fellow Ex South African which was nice! They understand English and can converse no problem.

I you choose one of the Nice specialties like pissaladière or pâtes au pistou, it's the best you ever ate. If you decide on the pizza it will be the best in your life. And oh the stuffed sardines.
