We have visited this restaurant many times - the atmosphere is quirky, overseen by the larger than life maitresse - but that is part of the charm. The food is always excellent and very reasonably priced - the 24.50 euro menu offers a great selection of dishes and you will not be disappointed. All the ingredients are fresh and cooked... More

What a great little place. We stayed in Le Grimaldi next door and walked past this place many times and every time that we did it seemed to be full but as it was next door we just walked on by until we decided to give it a try one night. It is not the place for intimacy and you... More

I normally stay in Nice but this year we decide to go for Juan Les Pins...but I missed Davia and her simple uncomplicated dishes...that I took a train for 2 nights to have a decent meal. The Paella is one of my favourites. As I said before, Dont expect a 5 star service or a stuck up atitude place. The... More

We have never been to Nice, where we have a small apartment, without visiting Madame Davia. It is very French, which is what we like, very reasonable, serves excellent food, adequate wines and is small and personal. We go at least once and sometimes more often on every trip, and that is over a six or seven year period. We... More

This is a family run restaurant overseen by the formidable patroness. The food is excellent and very good value. The menus are hand written and there is an authentic french atmosphere (although the staff can speak good english). It can get very busy at times.

Two of us dined at 7pm on Friday, and liked it so much that we took our friend with us the following evening. Each occasion was a pleasure. The staff were very welcoming and efficient without being obtrusive, so that we could really enjoy our conversation while we dined. We noticed diners that seemed to know the place and were... More

Six of us visited this restaurant on a recommendation while staying in Nice. I don't know what some Tripadvisor reviewers were expecting for an 18.50 Euro formule in the evening but we certainly didn't expect Michelin star. The food we had was freshly cooked, including the vegetables; the desserts, especially the orange tart were delicious and all on display on... More

Like others we stumbled upon this restaurant because it was very close to the hotel where we have stayed several times. We return to this restaurant every time we are in Nice because we enjoy the atmosphere and the food. Reservations are strongly recommended.
