Great place to grab so local specialties and have a drink. The socca is the best in Nice although the line can be way too long on the weekends
Half of the socca that I got was burnt but the edible parts were yum. The queue was very long when I went. There were no seats left and we had to stand. They were nice but not sure if they just overrated.
This place is more like local take away however food is just outstanding. Maybe it has no splendor comparing to other places but you can tell straight away from the lines queued up there is something special that attracts to it. The food could not be fresher. Socca disappears after few seconds - a true gem in Nice.
If you go to Nice, don't leave without eating Socca, the chick-pea flour based crepe, made fresh in huge batches at Chez Rene. You might have to wait in line, but the melt in your mouth, fresh out of the brick oven taste makes the wait worthwhile. This is also perfect for gluten-free eaters.
The food doesn't live up to the hype. Socca was charred to the extent that half of the plate was inedible. Shouldn't have been served, and any eatery that takes pride in what it offers wouldn't have served it. Pizza was cold and rubbery. Didn't try the farcis, but they didn't look fresh or appetising.
The line for socca snaked around the corner, indicating how popular this place is. It is essentially fast food with a local twist. The socca was fresh, right out of the oven, and tasted good. We also had the fried fish balls and the fried eggplant, both of which were good, but not spectacular. We wouldn't stand in line again... More

I found this place and judging by the huge line of people waiting for a portion of socca, I said to myself that it must be good. Unfortunately, I waited for 20 minutes, because everybody wanted at least... More
I read about it in here and went there too but I was disapointed and surprised why it has such a great rating and you need to queue for a slice of pizza 10-15 minutes almost throughout the day. My pizza is better and I am not Italien.
When we arrived here the queue was huge, and I was tempted to leave, but my friend said "if the queue's this long, it must be good!" so we stayed, and it was definitely worth the wait! Socca is Nice's speciality dish. Simple but very tasty, filling, and cheap! We had it with battered deep friend courgette flowers which were... More
