This was the most expensive restaurant during our 4 day visit to Nice. I had the duck in spiced honey sauce which was very spicy with a small pot of greasy chips and half a tomato. My husband ordered the special, beef in a paprika sauce, which turned out to be a few cubes of beef on a stick and a pot of greasy chips and half a tomato. My lavender panna cota came minus the lavender. Altho we got the last table as a large party filled the rest of the restaurant and were all having a set menu this should not have made any difference to our meal.

Very Disappointed--Worst meal on a 2 week trip to France
Based on reviews that we had read, we had great expectations for Ferme Saleya. Hopefully it was an “off” night or the chef was inattentive.. The meal failed on all levels--preparation, flavor, and presentation. I ordered the linguine with pesto. The pasta came swimming in the pesto sauce (as Cheerios swim in milk) with some tomato quarters thrown in—not like any pasta pesto I have ever had. My wife’s tuna was flavorless, dry and overpowered by a too syrupy balsamic glaze, served with greasy potatoes. She ordered the tuna rare. While the center was rare the rest over the tuna steak was overcooked. Service was good, as was the Pink Floyd wine. No a/c and hot.

Had the scallops and lavender panna cotta. Both were delicious! Don't be fooled by the lack of crowd in the restaurant....it is really a hidden gem away from all the more commercialised restaurants. Service was good,the waiter and waitress was very attentive.

Definitely a must try.

This place is great, ambience, decor and even music are very cool. Had the foie gras appetizer, It was very good with a jam, large granule salt, and lightly toasted bread that was very soft and delicious. The scallop main course was wonderful, with a butter wine sauce that was perfectly rich, but not heavy. Per other reviews, we had the lavender panna cotta and were not disappointed, make sure to order this when you dine at this relatively undiscovered gem in Nice.

When we saw how busy this restaurant was on a Saturday night and how nicely limited the menu (we work from the assumption that a limited menu usually means very good quality food), we went there on the Sunday. The restaurant was much emptier but the service and food excellent. The waitress recommended great wines, which were not overly expensive, I hasten to add. We both had foie gras for a starter with sweet wine. Fantastic. The Nice Burger and the gnocchi fantastic.
