Lovely evening and super food. Staff were polite and attentive. A bit pricey, but worth a special night out with swanky wine etc, so no complaints. I would recommend.

Paella seafood “Valencia “ cost 35€ per person. Min 2 person. Meat paella 31€per person. Min 2 person. Very large but nothing to do with Valencia. A lot of rice and clams. Not at all like Valencia paella

I would suggest booking especially as the holiday season has begun. We didn't book but when we were there, Nice was not yet busy with holiday travellers.
