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.

Reviewed 10 April 2023

We arrived right at the start of opening time for dinner at 7pm. We didn't have a reservation but the chef happily seated us. We had duck with an orange sauce which was cooked to perfection! To follow we had was crème brûlée and chocolate...moose. Both were lovely. Couple of glasses of house red, as with many French house wines, it was great. We were given a wee cheeky Menthe liquor to finish. All round, we really enjoyed this restaurant and would definitely recommend it to others. I suggest you book as it got busy quite quickly.More

This is a cozy place with good food and very friendly staff. The prices are fair and the portions are quite big. My wife and I both loved it and would highly recommend it for tourists looking to experience Nice like a local.

The food was nothing outstanding or impressive. It was really just simple cooked food without much flavor.. we had higher expectations given the extremely high reviews but it is way overrated. Just normal food, French cuisine cooked in a bland way.

Just had lunch there. They close normally at 2pm and we called around 1pm to say that we couldn't make it untill 2pm. They simply answered that as long as we arrived a few mns before 2pm we could order and eat. We got there...just before 2pm, were greated and seated straight away. They had all their daily specials still available eventhough it was the end of the service. I ordered the tuna and mango tartare and my gf took the tuna takami. We were served in less than 10 mns and it was all very good and tasty. They have quite a big menu and decent prices. Fast and quite friendly staff and I can only recommend that you try it out when in nice 👌👍More

Although this was a 50 minute walk from the front at Nice, it was well worth it. The staff were excellent in their service and recommendations. This is a genuine local restaurant with a good choice of meat, and fish options. I do not have...one complaint but a suggestion would be to serve the rolls heated as they were lovely.More

We had a wonderful romantic dinner at Le Fonetic. The food was delicious (I was in heaven with their cheese board!), the ambiance relaxed, but what really stood out was the service - such fantastic, friendly, helpful people. It was also really nice to get...away from the masses of people in the more touristy part of Nice to have a more peaceful environment. Really look forward to returning!More

We had a nice dinner, but given the extremely high ratings had expected more. It is a nice neighborhood "bistrot", food is good (no complaints) but not outstanding. Service was friendly.

This lovely cafe offers excellent food, friendly service and is a great value. The sea bass was perfectly prepared and the pork ribs were tender and flavorful. The menu is presented on iPad, and written phonetically, which makes for a very unique experience. The server...provides assistance if needed. The café gourmand featured delicious chocolate moose along with a tasty portion of creme brûlée. They are also child friendly.More

We had snails for starter and it tasted superb! The frog legs and duck breast were perfectly cooked as well, the portion and price were reasonable. Service was good, the owner was friendly and passionate to introduce us the wine for food pairing! Definitely worth...visiting if you are staying in Nice!More

Visited on March 18th. We came here after searching online for a place that serves local French cuisine, mainly snails and frog legs. We were not disappointed!!!! The food was *Outstanding*, and very reasonably priced. Add to that a warm welcome and great hospitality by...the chef and owner, who also poured all of us a free shot of digestif at the end the meal, and you get a dinner to remember. I will be happy to return here on my next visit!More

We had the duck breast and the sea bass. The duck breast was the largest breast I had ever seen. It looked like a 2" thick filet, and it was cooked perfectly. The sea bass, with a very creamy risotto was heaven. And don't forget...the fois gras. Very tasty. The owner is fun and will make your meal a pleasure. I guarantee it.More
