A group of friends and I ate here (made reservations, would recommend doing this because they gave us free drinks before and after dinner due to this!) on a quiet Sunday night in Nice and were completely satisfied with every aspect of this restaurant. Prices were very reasonable and two people can easily split the meat fondue dishes. Would recommend... More

The first thing I want to mention about this restaurant is about is staff. Almost everyone who was working there during our dinner was extra friendly. Food was also delicious. But sometimes when the service sucks you don’t get the taste of the food. Here it was just the contrary. And yes they serve good cheese fondue (I am a... More

Once again, the good reviews brought us to this restaurant for dinner recently. As the weather was very chilly, we were shown a table downstairs in a rather nice vaulted ceiling area with stone floors. The tables were closely packed with little room to move around. My wife, my adult son and myself were the first customers that night, but... More

We went there just because of the good reviews about the fondue, and it was not wrong: the fondue was awesome. Also, the waiter stuff was really nice and they gave us some drinks for free.

We had a wonderful experience at Le Choucas. Our waitress, Raluca, was excellent. We asked her for a recommendation on which fondue to choose and she pointed out the ones a tourist would order and the ones a French native would order - ofcourse as a tourist, we ordered the ones a French native would order! It was an excellent... More

It is since 2011 my favourite restaurant in Nice. I have dinner at Le Choucas every time I go to Nice and every person I have been there with loved the food, the ambience, the staff. Service is fast. Staff are friendly. Food is very good(maybe sauces could be improved). The complementary aperitif and complementary drink after dinner are a... More

Me and my fiancé went by le Choucas one evening and we saw people dipping stuff in cheese creating long strings of cheese that they rolled up and stuffed their faces with. It looked so delicious so we decided to go to this place the day after. When we arrived we got to choose a table. I was sure I... More

The fondue here was amazing - it's my first time ever having it, so my expectations are now high! We had the cheese and beef in a red wine sauce fondue. The cheese was tasty, and there was so much of it. You get given plenty of bread to dip. The beef fondue red wine sauce was delicious. We ate... More
