When the cheapest bottle of wine on the list is pushing €35 a certain standard of quality might be expected. This is a classy and comfortable looking restaurant, with friendly staff and a nice atmosphere, however the food fell well short of expectations. The Jerusalem artichoke soup was tasty but over-rich and became cloying after a few spoonfulls; again the... More

I have been wanting to go here to eat for some years so finally booked for a Saturday night as from the outside it looks lovely. What I didn't realise was that there is another 'annexe' which they take you down the side and around the back to another part which isn't the same as the main restaurant. We sat... More

This used to be my favourite restaurant in Nice and I often recommended it to people visiting France. I had brought my brother for what I expected would be a special meal , what a disappointment . The waitresses are still excellent and you are very well looked after but the food is now terrible. The waitress told me there... More

The restaurant is quite narrow with mirrors either side to deceive the eye. Vibrant red chairs - which were pretty comfortable. The staff were very friendly and we actually chose our whole meal from the " starters" which on the whole was lovely.

On a Sunday evening we have seen this good looking Restaurant and decided to give it a try. What a pity that we have not checked Tripadvisor before. Inside the Restaurant you will find a nice ambiance. We decided both to sit on a bench. But the waitress told us that one of us needed to sit on a red... More

Lured into the restaurant by the wonderful decor, the menu seemed promising So we were sad to find the food odd and unappealing. Somehow everything seemed to be slightly peculiar. For example, the pumpkin risotto tasted of orange and was so full of brea as to be inedible after four mouthfuls. The fish soup was the worst we have had... More

We went here for St Sylvestre (New Year in France) knowing nothing about the place or the food. The whole evening was really delightful, wonderful high end food , and great not too hurried service. The menu at 85€ plus wine was good value for money. A repeat visit later in January was just as successful. Considerably less expensive but... More

Excellent, friendly, small restaurant. Fairly short menu & wine list which meant that the restaurant knew what it was doing & did it well. Very friendly, knowledgeable & helpful service. The "Gambas with Vegetables Exotique" was particularly good. Only criticism would be the laughably small & uncomfortable plastic red chairs-they may have appeared chic when chosen but in reality they... More

A small (32 covers in Winter) but cosy and atmospheric restaurant in Old Town which we will definitely visit again on another Nice visit. Delicious scallops in a mushroom sauce and excellent pork for Jan. Not a long menu as one would expect for a small restaurant but plenty of variety.

We stumbled upon this restaurant on a Saturday night and they were able to fit us in. I had king prawns that were sublime and my husband had steak. The décor and lighting was welcoming and I would highly recommend this restaurant.
