This is very pleasant place in Nice. Personnel is very friendly, although a bit formal. Food is very tasty as well as ambiance. Seafood and foie gras are very good. Recommended

We dined here outside on a Sunday. The restaurant was very busy and service was sometimes rather slow. However, the food was very good and the lively street atmosphere provided interest.

The servers here were very nice and friendly. The food was great, truffle risotto was AMAZING. Definitely recommend it to everyone. They have an outside area where you can sit as the crowd of people are passing by. We had a great night.

Didn't know anything about this restaurant but chose it because of the white tablecloths! Excellent food and very good service. Was recommended an outstanding white wine too. Great for people watching and it made our last night in Nice truly memorable.
