One of our favourite Nice restaurants and once again the guys gave us a great evening of fine food and wine. In the summer there is seating outside, but this early in the year only the indoor area was open. Friendly generous hosts explain the dishes allowing one to choose something different from standard tourist fare. Very small, so I recommend booking but many seem to manage to get tables arriving on-spec.

All round quality meal at very cosy and charmingly decorated restaurant. Top wine recommendations were excellent, set menu of 2 courses for 31 euros is good value. Chef and staff are passionate about their food and this adds to the enjoyment of customers. Best of luck for ongoing future!

A beautifully decorated intimate room. Excellent friendly service. A short menu with quality ingredients and well presented delicious food. Reasonable prices for food and wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and we will be back soon!

This restaurant should be much higher up in the ratings! Lovely tasteful decor, comfortable but with a touch if elegance. Seats maybe, twenty four people, max...makes for an intimate dining experience. Three person operation. Service is smooth and unobtrusive yet friendly and caring. One of the owners takes time to explain the menu in detail and suggests a suitable wine. A small, well thought out menu. Three courses for 31 euro....a bargain considering the generous portions and high quality. Imaginative entrees such as tartine de boeuf ( superb) and equally inspired mains. Vegetables treated with care. I overheard a diner at another table say " the best foie gras I've ever had". Desserts are fantastic...crepes Suzette, a chestnut mousse etc. a truly decadent ending. We first came upon this restaurant about a year ago, on a previous visit and very happy that we went back...even better than we remembered!

I rather selfishly don't want to share the secret of this restaurant as it will make booking harder when I go next. But to be fair to the owners, who do a brilliant job, I will.
This is a small and intimate restaurant with a lovely atmosphere and friendly and professional service. It feels like a real treat. We had a glass of champagne to start wth, the set menu of three courses and a good bottle of white wine. With sparkling water this came to Euros 140 which for the standard of food was good value. It was a really memorable evening.
Make sure you book in advance. It's a very small restaurant and was fully booked when we went. It was the best meal we had in Nice.
