My wife and I have been traveling abroad for a few weeks. Our daughters joined us in Nice from South Africa on the day we went to dinner, so it was a real celebration to catch up again, beginning their European holiday. We chose the four course wine pairing menu, which was superb. Coming from South Africa, we appreciated the creativity in these dishes, referencing back to some typical dishes from home. The staff were friendly and attentive, even assisted me to connect with Uber. Highly recommended and hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Thats really good and lovely place!! Enjoyed every moment there. Stuff is nice and relaxed, no pressure like in some other restaurants. Food doesn’t need to be commented- excellent

My wife & I booked in on Friday night to celebrate our joint retirements. We booked for 19:00 hours. Our E mail conformation & other documents makes a big thing about not being late & arriving in a 10 minute window before/ after your booking time. So we arrived at 18:55 planning to have an aperitif to be rudely told that they were not open yet & we should come back later!

Now this restaurant is not situated in the best part of town & we were both in our finery so I asked if we could take a seat outside to be told that was not possible as they were scraping up candle wax!

At this point I was ready to just leave & find another place to eat in the Port area ( plenty of choice) but after walking the dodgy street for 10 minutes my wife persuaded me to keep our reservation.

Glad she did as the cooking was fine - apart from a bizarre South African lamb dish that was served with our Duck. Just didn’t go & would have been good either as a separate course or substitute the lamb for vegetable , aubergine would have been perfect.

So food good - service good once we got in but that first customer interaction impression very bad.

Exquisite food made with South African and French passion. Matching wines from both countries. Excellent and attending service. They only serve 2 menues, 4 or 6 courses, plus all the extras. We had a great evening and a fab dinner. A must when in Nice and good value for money!

A brilliant experience indeed! The restaurant is lovely with attention given to every detail. The food was amazing and so beautifully presented. Every plate had an element of delicious surprise. The service was elegant yet very personal and friendly. This was an overall excellent experience that we will remember forever!

If you are in the area, go for this incredible culinary feast!
