Beautiful sunset view of the harbor, excellent food and attentive service. We had scallops and duck, both entrees were superb. L'Oursin Bleu is located a short drive from Nice. It is a very picturesque ride and it definitely adds to the enjoyment of the evening.

Beautiful food and great service, even if the welcome was a little bit cooler than I am used to! Food was beautifully presented and tasted scrumptious.
