I was in Nice last week for business and decided to have a very late dinner on Friday evening. Even at 21:35 I was received very friendly by the restaurant staff, offered a nice table and given all the time I needed to pick the dishes I liked.
The amuse bouche, fresh bread and other nibbles were a good way to start the meal. Dishes are small to medium size, but of great quality. Excellent wine advise is given at the table too.
I find it wonderful that Jan himself, normally to be found in the kitchen, makes time to have a little chat with every guest in the restaurant.
A top notch experience! I'll be back very soon!

We had done our research and advise anyone who desires the very best in French cuisine not to miss a truly unique experience.This is a world class restaurant with its beautiful decor,divine menu and excellent wine list. All who work here do so with obvious passion.There is nothing fake here,no pretence -just a pride in knowing that they are heading only one way. We relaxed to a wonderful evening of good food and wine in leisurely surroundings. Luckily we reserved well in advance -so many arrivals were told full house. Nice has so so many fine eateries and yet in a short period of time Jan is right up there at the pinnacle.Well Done to all.

I dined at Jan a week ago today and was completely blown away by the experience, so much so, that i am writing my first ever review. The restaurant is small and quaint, beautifully decorated and has a lovely atmosphere. From arrival to the goodbyes the service was friendly, knowledgeable and impeccable. With regards to the food, i live in London and have eaten at some very good restaurants both here and around the world, but this was the best meal i have ever had. The flavours across all three courses were incredible with everything being cooked perfectly. I was lucky enough to meet the chef at the end who was young, down to earth and happy to have a quick chat. Look out for his name in years to come! If i am ever back in Nice i will definitely revisit.

We booked this restaurant having read the reviews on this site. It was wonderful. The meal was delicious but the staff , including the chef, completed the evening . From the moment we stepped over the threshold we were greeted by attentive knowledgable staff. This is a new restaurant and we wish it well.
