We ordered the plat de jour at just after mid day. We then waited 30 mins having been served our drinks. We inquired about our meal and 10 mins later we're told the plat was finished. We were offfered 3 alternatives and chose one. We were given a small jug of wine. Another 15 min wait and another inquiry as... More

My wife and I had dinner here in January 2017. We both had entrecote (a point) and it was the worst piece of meat we've had in decades. Reminded me of trips behind the Iron Curtain in the 60's. We tried to speak to the waiter but he pretended he did not understand French, English, German, Spanish or Italian. Must... More

This restaurant is an OK option for families with kids if you're aware of the tourist factor. Was me and the wife blown away by the food? No, but good size portions that tasted OK and came cooked as ordered. The kids had a nice pizza to share. Nice but short wine list. Service was a bit lacklustre, not great,... More

Good location. Nice décor, made of different levels to mimic an opera stage. Decent furniture: not perfect, but good. Good food: diverse menu. Super service: super friendly people + good advice + willingness to accommodate special requests. To my eyes that is worth much more than the furniture defects. All in all a very good evening.

Food was adequate but service left a lot to be desired . Waitress was more interested in who was being seated next door rather than waiting table !

Waiter provided very good service and was attentive but the food was abysmal. Roasted chicken tasted like it had been dipped in chlorine for seasoning and we left it there. Lamb chops were slightly below average. Mushroom sauce came 15 minutes after the mains. Waiter didn't charge us for their mistake.

This bistrot served me awesome grilled lamb. The flavour of the jus was so good. The patadine were really good. Four meals and 1/2 a carafe of wine came to under 95 euros. The ambiance of the restaurant was really lovely, old feel to it. I recommend this place, it was super busy in the area and we managed to... More

Awful service from surly staff that have never practised smiling. Food was bland and tasteless. I have eaten better seafood linguine in Rotherham but you expect better in Nice. Avoid. Please.

Give this place a miss we tried to enjoy a family meal on Sunday evening. We had a very poor service experience. We should have left on our 1st meeting of the staff but gave them the benefit. But it just got worse and worse. We ordered steak it was just totally rubbish full of fat and gristle. The wine... More
