“This place is like the Riviera Casino in Las Vegas”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

Old looking, very few betting tables, seems run down, too hot in the tables section. We attended in a large group (150 people) and they new we were coming in advance and only one blackjack and one roulette was running. On a Friday night! It doesn't have a good feel to it. Not a tourist attraction by any means.

Dear Sir,
We would like to thank you to have shared your experience on Trip Advisor in spite of degagreements met.
We apoligize of the warmth into the gaming room, maybe there was a disworking with the clim, I will notify it to the technical service.
Regarding the hour of running of game tables, we opened the game room at 5 pm 2 years ago but some people judged that it was to earlier and not too qualitative.
So we have decided to run drive blackjack, poker and french roulette at 8 pm, traditionnal english roulette at 3 pm and electronic english roulette at 11 am in order to satisfy every customers.
Maybe there was not people enough to run drive all games when you came into the gaming room.
We hope to see you a next time, into the Casino or the Cabaret for you to discover all changes allowed during this year.
Your sincerely,

“Great Dinner/Show”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

We went to the Dinner/Show at the Casino which are on most weekends
Reasonabily priced at 64 euros each for the Meal/wine, which was a fixed menu. the other drinks are a bit expensive though. The food was very enjoyable and the service was efficent. All the staff are bi-lingual.
we were entertained during our meal with music/singers and a magician, who went round the tables doing individual tricks.
The main show was based of voyage round the world visiting various countries, showcasing dancing and songs.
The two singers (male/female) sung both in french and english. While the introductions where in french, it did not detract from our enjoyment. The Dancers were excellent in a well presented show of many different dances. The two Comedy/Jugglers provided amazing routines. The evening were totaly enjoyable and the time just flew by (3 hours)

“Overpriced”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Due to the thunder storms during our visit to Nice, we went into the casino to shelter. Tables and machines were quite expensive and the tables were not open in the morning. Surroundings were ok but was never asked if we wanted a drink from the bar. Yes, I lost money but it is still an honest review.
