Stopped by here for a quick glass of fizz on our way out. It was just round the corner from where we were staying. It was very quiet but the staff were welcoming and the music was nice and chilled. We were a bit out of season I reckon be better during the summer.

Why that is called a wine cave? The selection here is more that of an "epicerie" than a wine cave. Dusty bottles with a terrible stockage and a very limited selection. Ridiculously overpriced ( Mouton Cadet at more than 20 euros - what a joke). The man working was extremely rude, and didn't hesitate pointing out the shelf with "the... More

Happlily the Cave 35 has returned, from its short spell on the beach. It is now back where it belongs, on Rue de la Buffa, far closer to our home and not sur la plage, where in my view it was wasted. This is a great local wine bar, full of locals enjoying a very good selection of French wines.

Cave 35 was a very good wine bar in an area where there aren't many. Sadly it has closed and is apparently moving to sporting Plage, which is a shame, as it was a good wine bar rather than a beach bar. It used to serve very good wines at prices that were not shocking and they served a complimentary... More

for the same price I stay in Budha bar in MC, much better, much longer, less expensive... only advantage, they are friendly (not as much as I'd expect for the price).

Had early evening drink with family. Friday evening was busy. We were lucky to get a seat. Served promptly and given advice in wine even though it was busy. Had a platter of food which was good quality and plenty for 3 to share as a starter. Wines by glass fairly pricey but good. All the details are on big... More

Like some other travelers we stumbled across this wine bar. It has an excellent selection of wines and does serve beer. And as others have reported the nibbles platters are excellent. We were made very welcome by the staff when we first entered the bar. They remained attentive and friendly throughout. Because of this we returned twice more. Would recommend... More

My husband and I were in Nice June 21 - 25, 2012. We visited Cave 35 four times! It was the perfect place for us to have a glass of wine or two or three before dinner. We usually arrived around 7:00 p.m. which is early, we know. But there were only a few people there so we could sit... More

Lovely new place off Buffa. The drinks are not the cheapest but, firstly they serve very good wine and champagne. And secondly the 'nibblles' are like a starter so overall excellent value. Gets very busy later on so get there early if you want a seat.

Cave 35 at first glimpse is a wine & champagne cellar, small but effective and nicely set out, the difference is it's not just a cellar! Walk through the door way in the bottle shop and you enter into another world, dimmed coloured lights, lounges, fireplace, huge floor to ceiling tinted windows, smooth music and a fantastic bar at the...
