We have eaten at this restaurant a couple of times now and are going again tonight. There are lots of places to eat in antibes but this little place offers a unique service usually with the chef getting involved with the ordering. They obviously buy in fresh produce and although meet what is on the menu will give you advice... More

We ordered Paella Marinera after 30mins’ wait. It wasn’t mind-blowing, but OK. The rice was correctly flavoured, however the fish was bland. Altogether, for the price, it was underwhelming. However, Antibes is not exactly teeming with authentic spanish cooking, so in that sense it’s well worth a try. And who knows, may be we chose the least interesting dish from... More

Came here for Valentine's Day dinner (reserve in advance; the resto was fully booked that evening). I'm vegan, my partner isn't; when we'd called to reserve, we let them know that and offered to make a vegan paella but that it would be for both of us (i.e., my boyfriend couldn't order his own meaty paella, but that wasn't a...

Just happened on the restaurant as it was opening. Must have gotten the last table because it filled up soon thereafter. They specialize in paella and it is with good reason. A steaming hot, large and delicious serving appeared in front of me and soon disappeared. Food is very good, service and prices are reasonable

This little gem was in an alley way just around the corner from our accommodations in Antibes and they specialized in paella which was made fresh to order. The restaurant will prepare the paella for 2, 4, 6 or 8 people and if you call ahead and let them know what you want it can be customized to a certain... More

Nothing worked. 1. The tablecloth was dirty when we came, the waitress didn't bother to take it away, instead she just put a clean one on top. 2. We ordered a bottle of Rosé, we only got it in the middle of the main course and only after complaining. 3. The wine was terrible and not even chilled. Warm rosé,... More

As travellers we often find ourselves eating at late hours. I was initially happy to see the late opening hours and we arrived 45minutes before closing time. Unfortunately were received with a lot of attitude saying they won't serve us and that we should reserve in advance if we want to eat late. Sorry I come from a country where... More

We called ahead to discuss our order for paella and Amando kindly assisted us on the detail of the ingredients and the level of spiciness which we preferred. Preparation time was around 40 minutes, giving us plenty of time to walk from our apartment and enjoy a relaxing carafe of the local rosé while the meal was being prepared. The... More
