Loved this place, excellent food, great wine (he suggested something else which was perfect when they didn't have the one we ordered) and not wildly expensive. It was full when we went, all French people as it's not in the main tourist area, but still only 10 minutes from the Old Port. Well worth going

Went back to L'Esprit Gourmand one year later and still best restaurant in Nice - crammed full of locals, great food and service and very reasonable prices.

What a great little Restaurant. The food was superb. We had a good wine. There are different salads to choose from and 3 main courses as well as appetizers and desserts. The design is very different to all the restos in the more touristy area of Nice. It is unique. The view of the street reminds me somehow of sitting in a resto in Munich. The owner serves himself and is a funny chap and very service oriented. We had some good laughs. The tables are small and cozily close to each other, which I don't mind, it gives the place warmth. Will return definetely.

This restaurant is a bit out of the way from the downtown core but well worth the time it takes to get there (about 4 stops up on the tram from downtown). Food was great as was the service and we all agreed it was the best meal we had eaten while in France.

We hadn't -these came as complementary 'bonne bouches' and set the tone for our meal. It was great - unlike the other restaurants in the area that we tried. So we went there 3 times during our short stay in a flat near Riquier station - and each time we met great service, good English and very tasty food. In fact the only problem was the noise level fromn French families enjoying themselves uproariously. Not cheap but less expensive than their competitors and sometimes there was a wait between courses.
