Twice we went and twice we were treated like dirt at this pretentious place. Hostess barking at you to step aside as you politely wait for a moment to ask for the possibility of a table. Waiter basically trained as prison guard orders you away from an array of empty tables to the worst one on site. I know Basque seafood tapas is among the best in the world, but in case you do want to expose yourself to this humiliating treatment, make sure you order the fried cod balls, too,as the pricey ceviches will leave you running for pizza two hours later. Personally, after almost exchanging epithets with the rude waiter who ruined a good mood -after a beautiful day watching France win the World Cup Quarter Finals - we chose the amazing modern Italian place around the corner, which is now our favorite. I will never return to Peixes and tell my friends not to go.

We were lucky to arrive at the right time to get a table at Peixes, one of the most popular restaurants in Nice. Our group of 6 arrived just when a table of 6 was leaving, so we only had to wait about 10 minutes for them to clean up and reset. We were looking forward to some fresh fish and were not disappointed. We had a large lunch so only had entrees. The codfish balls, seabass and salmon were all delicious. The restaurant is small with indoor and outdoor seating. Very casual and as you are right beside the street if seated outside, then you are really in the middle of everyone passing by. So don’t expect quiet or private. It was fun though to watch all the people passing, see a Brazilian acrobatic troupe perform right beside you and generally soak up the atmosphere!

Wonderful place, great menu and drinks. But if the waitresses treat you like an unwanted child and do not welcome you at all, you simply don’t want to stay there. We had two champagnes and 12 oysters and left.

It's okay to come here if you are not very hungry but want to spend a lot of money. You might feel "hip" sitting there im front of your small but nicely decorated portion of cold fish, but not more. The wine was nice though.
