Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was a treat to eat at a Michelin restaurant. The food was delicious focusing on seafood, fish and homemade desserts. I was made to feel welcomed as a solo diner, and was given a nice table. The staff were attentive and spoke French and...English.More

Very lovely, friendly service. Food was very tasty but we had slightly higher expectations considering the price of the dishes. The bread should be of better quality. Overall, a nice evening but i would not rush back.

This restaurant excelled on all counts. The hostess was lovely and extremely knowledgeable. Her English was excellent. She explained each dish in great detail. We sat outside and the ambience was perfect. Other guests were quiet - no noisy tables. I would highly recommend for...the perfect evening in Nice.More

It says it's vegan and vegetarian friendly, but other than dessert, there is not one single vegetarian or vegan option on the menu. Not a single one. Every salad, entree, soup, ect is not vegetarian, let alone vegan.

If you have been to Le Sejour Cafe this gives you a deja-vue feeling. But a good one. The food is different, but equaly excellent and the staff is just as nice and attentive. Really great food, with top ingrediens and cooked to perfektion.

You must go here if you visit Nice - you will not be disappointed! Each course was delicious and the staff were lovely. They also have a ‘sister’ restaurant two doors down - Le Sejour is definitely worth a visit too if you’re in town...for a few days!More

Bistrot Marin was recommended by our hotel staff and it did not disappoint! We were blessed by a beautiful night for outdoor dining; the service was attentive, helpful, and we were not rushed. Starters - crab soup, mussels, and tuna tataki were delicious. Entrees -...codfish, duck breast, white fish - along with sides of spinach risotto, carrot purée, asparagus, and mashed potatoes were equally yummy. Sympa dessert was perfect little sampler after our meal. We enjoyed the leisurely pace, the atmosphere, and the service. We are already planning a return visit!More

This restaurant is very small. Therefore it is not that easy to get reservation. Few days ahead is must. Service was good. The servicer speaks good English to explain the menu. Food was good but not great. For the price, it was worth to visit....The shrimp vavioli was very good. The langoustine was tasty but it was difficult for some western people to eat. The duck breast was good. Overall the quality of food was very good. It is a restaurant you should put in your list when visiting Nice.More

Having just arrived in Nice and being very jet lagged, we were disappointed that our hotel room was not ready for us yet. So, in an effort to kill some time and get a bite to eat, we stumbled upon Bistrot Marin just around the...corner from the hotel. What a gem! Each dish was perfection, but I have to say our favorite was the shrimp ravioli. Service was friendly and helpful. We did not feel either rushed or ignored. I would go back in a heartbeat.More

Reservations a must; small place, exquisitely decorated in turquoise, matching Peugeot salt and peppers, great friendly service from Robin (we called him “Msr. Hood”). One steak item is the only non- seafood choice. As Americans, the atmo was just sooo charming and sophisticated without being...stuffy. The cuisine is of course fresh, tasty, but seasonings are very mild and without character. Not to be missed if you are an American seeking a modestly priced French experience with quality!More

We got to book one of the last tables this evening, yes…you probably will have to make a reservation. We just made a phonecall earlier the same day. Very cozy atmosphere, small place but still, very good standard. Food was excellent, serving was fast, friendly...and our waiter knew what he was doing.More

This small bistro is a true gem in a city filled with restaurants. Be sure to make reservations as it only seats about 30 people.

Pop in to the restaurant or to their sister restaurant next door - owned by the same family. Or call them.

If you go on the Le Sejour Cafe website and go to the"Contactez-nous" two email addresses come up. I believe if you write to either one they will answer you re: reservations.
