“A superb "real" French restaurant”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Authentic cuisine in a small restaurant tucked away from the main tourist area. Service is good and the price excellent. Highly recommended

“simply fantastic!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

My wife and I had the good fortune to have been tipped off about this little gem nestling in a quiet but central area of Nice town. Great french home cooking at it's best, unpretentious ,very friendly and helpful staff and delicious food. The fish soup was fantastic and my wife loved the coq au vin managed to return again later on our trip and will definitely be a feature on our future trips to Nice.

“Old Style French Eating”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Forget about the pasta, the pizza and all the other Italian style dishes that seem to be pervading French restaurants , The Davia is old style French eating at a reasonable price. Excellent choice prix fixe menus at 20 and 26 euros for 3 courses you won't get better value anywhere in Nice. Seek this one out and you will not be disappointed and it comes complete with proper French madame( who also happens to be the owner) serving on.

“Uncomplicate ad non pretentious family run business!!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I have been visiting Nice for the last 4 years...and Davia is one of the reasons I go back to Nice. Simple Frech/Italian dishes...boiled vegetables could improve...but for the rest! Wow!
