“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

This restaurant is tucked away on a street that doesn't look too promising, but once inside it's a real treat. It's very small (only 25 covers or so), but the service was impeccable and some of the dishes were truly inspired. We had the tasting menu (menu degustation), which was about 65 Euros each, and was good value for it considering its location in central Nice. Considering that pretty average restaurants in the area often came in at around 100 Euros for two, we thought this was definitely worth the extra.

“Excellent and inspiring...”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

We had dinner in mid-August. It was an enjoyable experience of tasting a creative Franco-Japanease cuisine in a cosy and clean environment. The service was also with no remarks. In short: recommended for open-minded people looking for something new in French cuisine. Thanks to the chefs...

“Intimate restaurant with very good food”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

Small modern restaurant. We had the tasting menu. Small portions but the food was excellent. My husband is allergic to onions and the prepared a special meal for him. Vegetables were especially good. Very fresh. Dessert was strawberries in a champagne sorbet. Excellent. Didn't like the plastic table mats.

“You have to go here!”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

The room is very intimate. The food is incredible. But the biggest edge is the service. The owner is very professional and friendly, and made my girlfriend and I feel like we were the most important people to visit his restaurant since its inception.

The food has so much flavor your palate will be shocked and delighted at the same time.

Another terrific perk for whiskey lovers is their selection of rare Japanese whiskeys. Such a terrific way to finish a dinner.

This has to be Nice's #1 restaurant. Go try it to find out for yourself.

“Not the same quality this time”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

From the great experience last time - expectations were set high before this visit. But unfortunately - something was missing this time. Prices were still high - service was great - but the food lacked the extra touch one expect with prices like this. Very average - or below.
