This is such a beautiful environment for a restaurant - stylish, romantic and atmospheric. The food is unfortunately average - I tried the lamb shank and it was unfortunately tough. Beautiful place though and I will visit it again in the hope that the food is improved

We like going to NICE. They have a great bar area to have a drink before or after dinner. The food is good, but the menu has not changed in a while. Service is attentive and fast. We like going on date night.

NICE offers everything you expect from a good restaurant: quality food, a variety of dishes, beautiful décor, nice location - and an attentive service. But you don't only get all this for a reasonable price - you also give something to the staff with your visit there: work experience. NICE is a learning institute for future chefs and waiters/waitresses, but... More
