Wandering around town, we happened upon this restaurant. An authentic French cafe with note on the door inviting people to stop in for local, authentic food. We had gnocchi with gorgonzola and omelette with ratatouille...both outstanding. Fantastic, friendly, helpful server. Would definitely return as one of our best meals while traveling southern France.

We originally planned to go to another restaurant we heard was good only to find when we got there it was closed. We asked the taxi driver a nice spot to eat local cuisine and he took us here, phoning them on the way to check they were open for us. Upon entering we were greeted by a really friendly... More

This restaurant serves fresh delictious food with friendly service. Our waiter William treated us like a regular, and was very kind in translating for us. We both had veal, mine was cold and thinly sliced and dressed, and came with a salad of greens and tomatoes (see the main picture). It was phenomenal. My husband had the veal scallopini with...

We were only saying earlier today that it is at least a year since we last found a Nice restaurant that we wanted to return to. Lots of experimenting and exploration and plenty of pleasant experiences but nothing tempting enough to draw us back again. Fortunately tonight we at last struck gold again. Not a startlingly original or varied menu... More

Very very good. Helpful staff. Deserts are superb. Real local food sourced daily from the local marché. Clients are a mixed of locals and tourists which is always a good sign. Refreshing place in a touristic town. I recommend the chocolate mousse.

We just wanted to go for appetizers because we had a late lunch. We all got the sample appetizer. It had a little bit of everything and it was great. I would like to go back before we leave because everyone else's food looks great. It was a good atmosphere and more quite than the normal tourist area.

I stumbled across this restaurant when searching for somewhere to eat on my first night in Nice and it turned out to be the best of the best. The waiter who saw me reading the English "invitation" in the window and enticed me in was excellent. He made sure I was happy with the table position (window table) and put... More

Terrific small neighborhood restaurant. The best zucchini flowers ever! Very nice waiter who was patient and kind helping us with the menu. We had a pork dish and a sampler plate of local specialities, both good. Reasonable prices. A short walk from our hotel the Boscolo.

They served us despite the fact it was late, but only with a limited menu. The service was excellent, but the food a little bland which was disappointing as it was not cheap
