Description: A décor filled with vibrant colors, an 18th century carousel and its wooden horses make La Rotonde a very unexpected place. Dedicated to families, it is a warm and bright restaurant where it is pleasant to linger after a delicious gourmet meal. A simple menu and yet full of creative surprises. From the first sunny days, its terrace opens onto the sea and the sun.

“Since Years a nice place to be and eat in Nice”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

I am a customer -- the word is probably not the best, fan would be better -- of the Rotonde since the eighties. And I do consider this place as one of the most constantly good to very good of Nice.
The present Chef, Rieubland is a modern cook, but also aim to do it simple and with original savours. My wife and I eat there for the 14. Juillet this year, and the meal was one of the very best I eat in the past 5 years. A great Gaspacho, fresh and spicy, a perfectly cooked plaice, with a nice touch of "piment d'espelette", a perfectly prepared lamb chop. And as I dislike the "fromage blanc" (cottage cheese mousse), I demanded and got a nice cup of red fruits. A very nice meal indeed!
Moreover, and as an advice for persons impressed by the surrounding of the Negresco: Everybody is friendly and simnple there -- you do not need to fear!

“Fabulous experience on the Fête Nationale evening”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We've previously dined in the Negresco's main restaurant (Chantecler), and on this trip we tried the Rotonda, which is a bit cheaper (relatively speaking!). We dined inside because the weather was a bit iffy, but were given a table outside to watch the firework display afterwards, which was a terrific experience. The whole hotel, especially the main foyer, is a feast for the eyes, and the food & service are fantastically good. Unless you have a motor yacht in the marina, I suspect you'll not eat there often, but it's definitely worth doing it if you can. You'll remember the experience for years to come

“Great dining experience”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

I was expecting something very pricy - as this place is famous -, but I think its priced fairly. The food was amazing, perfect service, location and the atmosphere was really cool with he carousel theme. We had the menu du jour and it was fantastic, you wont go back home hungry hehe. Would definitely come back :)

“Fancy hotel!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

One of a must when you visit Nice. It's a classy yet chic hotel with the good local style food to try! Otherwise, you can just go to grab a pictures or two in front of the hotel there as a landmark.

The food at the Carousel Cafe was excellent! We really enjoyed breakfast each morning. They had a wonderful assortment of pastries, fruit, cereals. The staff was very accommodating as well!
