A very pleasant way to spend a Saturday evening in Nice. Live jazz was great although perhaps a little too loud for the size of the room. Lovely food (boeuf bourgignon for my wife, assiette de charcuterie for me). But really it's all about the superb wines and the knowledgeable help provided in such a helpful and refreshingly non-condescending way by the owner. With two of our friends we had two bottles of Faugeres and left feeling very happy.

Had a weekend trip to Nice with my aunt and was our first time in Nice and on our first night we went here and had the most relaxing time i've had in a while. The Jazz and Blues was incredible. We had italian and French meats and cheeses with wine served to us by the owner and could not fault the service.
Will definitley return upon my travels......this place is a must.

January Saturday the 14th 2012 produced some fantastic music, from the JOANNA ABBINANTI QUARTET. Joanna visited the Great American songbook with terrific style and as she was backed by a trio of great musicians the evening was a delight.

The first set was a succession of mainly up-tempo numbers but the second set relaxed and included some great ballads such as “Star Eyes” and Joanna's interpretation of “Darn That Dream,” a Jimmy Van Heusen composition, was moving and soulful. The trio were joined by a great alto player Sebastian Chaumont solo's, the Charlie Parker of Nice, soon had the audience whooping and applauding.

For me the highlight was in the third set, for another great rendition by Joanna of a Van Heusen song “Like Someone in Love,” and Olivier Slama's classic intro on piano set the mood perfectly. The evening ended with a member of the audience joining the band for her version of “Stormy Weather” which was terrific.

Cave Wilson are to be complimented on their policy of promoting great jazz in Nice, and they have a pretty good selection of great wines. We are looking forward to many great evenings at this terrific venue.

Looking for somewhere to eat, we were very happy to find this place. Beautiful food, great combinations of flavours. Our waiter had some perfectly matched wines and ports, which just made everything easier. Looks more like a tapas bar, but we had a 3-course meal. Wish we could have gone back again, but unfortunately, we had to leave Nice!
