“Absolutely superb!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

If you are planning to eat out in Nice it's best to shop around a bit before choosing. There are streets lined with them, often on both sides too, and each has its own "meeter & greeter" outside trying to lure you in. These are fine if you enjoy watching the world go by as you eat, or if you want to see and be seen. However, many of the really good eateries are to be found in little side streets away from the bustling crowds. This is the case with the fabulous Cafe de Nice tucked away in the quiet rue Maurice Jaubert close to the Place Massena. You can always tell if a restaurant is good if it is frequented by the locals, and that's just what you get here. We ate here three times during the week we were in Nice and it will be our first port-of-call when we return next year. Their steak au poivre was cooked to perfection, their duck was delicious, and their tagliatelli with salmon out of this world. For dessert you want to try their Tarte au citron, a lemon meringue pie the size of a small house! These wonderful creations were all on their fixed price menu, so you do get excellent value for your money. To top it all, the staff greet you with a smile and do their best to make you feel at home. What more could anyone ask for?

“Very good restaurant”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We had a perfect meal at the restaurant cafe de nice. We ordered the duck, and it was excellent. With the duck we got vegetables, a very good sauce and mashed potates. The service was very good. We absolutely recommend this restaurant.

“Give It a Try - Good Value!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We ate here several times during our stay in Nice, in June LAST year, so we were looking foreword to another visit this year. Whilst this is still a good 'value for money' restaurant, especially choosing the 3 courses for €19 menu, the food was not as memorable as last year. The presentation was uninspired and the quality and variety of ingredients in our two main courses was noticeably inferior to 2013.

Having said that, it was still good value in Nice. The wine was very reasonably priced and very good, the server was delightful, and it IS nice to have linen tablecloths and napkins. We were fairly early diners, and I think the atmosphere would be even better as the restaurant filled up more. Also, we were sorry to miss Jazz Night on the Saturday. Jazz Night was really good last year!

We only eat there one night, so on a different night there may have been a different chef - I'd definitely still say to go and check it out for yourself.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We came a cross this little place quite by accident.....down a side street off the main pedestrian area., not far from Place Massena. It was sunny (many of the restaurants were in the shade and empty). Service was very friendly, efficient and a cut above the rest. The food was excellent.....beautifully presented and fresh. I had the Artichoke Salad and my husband had the Goats cheese salad. Both were so delicious, sufficient, and well priced as was the wine. It is rare to see real tablecloths and serviettes these days, the crips white and beige linen looked so attractive.
Highly recommended and we will go again as soon as we are able.

“A nice restaurant in Nice”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

I dined in cafe de Nice as one of a group of twelve ladies. The waiter was friendly and attentive without being overly familiar. We all chose from the €19 menu and in the main were happy with our food. The starters, French Onion Soup, Shrimp Salad and Cheese salad were very good-tasty and well presented. The mains - chicken, steak and cod were good without being sensational. The desserts -fresh fruit salad, chocolate mousse were simply delicious and very generous. We would recommend this restaurant for its friendly, helpful staff and good food.
