Very authentic provencal restaurant. The service can be slow when busy, but the food is freshly cooked. Ideal place to chill out and soak up the ambiance of Nice.

The staff were utterly charming when we were considering dining, but once we sat down the charm tap was turned right off. We may have well been completely invisible! The food was pretty good though thankfully.

We was 7 people for lunch, and the staff was not smiling one time! They didn't look at us and the didn't say thank you for tips or anything else when we left. The staff could learn something about service. The food was ok, but the Cesar Salat was with Icebergsalat not Romanie, and at the menucard says, that the... More

Went there for dinner. The food was not tasty. Does not look fresh. Under the name of steak they served burger. Food was as if not cooked instantly but heated inmicrowave.

I took the pulpo à la niçoise and my girlfriend the mozarella salad. I must say we were both quite happy with what we got, though we still ended up paying EUR 40,- for those relatively small dishes and a bottle of water. Maybe the negative reviews are more on the pizza side, or more complex dishes. In any case,... More

We were impressed with how friendly and helpful the staff are offering suggestions and describing the dishes. The meals were good, I tried the risotto and my husband had the John Dory - both meals were really nice. The location is excellent in cours Saleya, a pleasant place to relax and people watch. We were especially impressed with our waiter... More

I always eat here at least once during my stay in Nice. This time I actually visited twice (once for lunch and once for dinner) because this place always delivers. Typical French fare with lots of meat and seafood on the menu. It is located in the bustling area of the cours saleya so it is not as cheap as... More

We came to La Cambuse for a meal one evening after wandering around the old town waiting for something to catch our eye ! The waiters we spoke to were very friendly, helpful & fluent in English, and we were soon shown to a table & set up with a G&T. (Perfect) The food arrived pretty quickly as the restaurant... More

The sort of place you end up in on your first night in Nice when you haven't booked ahead. Appalling quality of food - how can a caesar salad be made so badly?! The melon and parma ham starter was equally as shocking for such a simple dish. Prices are not even as low as the standard would suggest. There... More
