The food was pretty good - no complaints. €9 for a large bottle of water. Also €48 for a Riesling (I like light whites) was the lowest-priced option. I understand the area is touristy and the restaurant is on the nicer side, but be warned.

Ordered seafood platter 'Royale'. The largest platter at 165 €. It came with Everyting. And for 2 persons, way too much food. But the whole dining experience was very positive. Attentive and positive staff. Clean restaurant and beautiful fresh food. Recommended.

Raw materials are high quality, presentation is great (from the atmosphere to the huge, luxurious dishes) but in the end food is average and probably not worth the money. An example, seafood pastas come with a lot of garlic and shells still in the plate:...More

We wanted to treat ourselves and this is a very good place. Centrally located with a nice parking nearby, and right on the beginning of the walking area. I was surprised because it has recently been renovated and the new interior design is modern and...More

Very good restaurant. Good location, nicely decorated, tables inside and outside as well. Good quality food and wines. Huge portions. The only issue - it's overcrowded sometimes and if it is, the service may be not the best.

I would suggest booking especially as the holiday season has begun. We didn't book but when we were there, Nice was not yet busy with holiday travellers.

A restaurant specializing in seafood and fish, established since 1973 situated on the pedestrian zone at a couple steps from Place Massena. The establishment is particularly renowned for its quality and freshness of its products, its cuisine and service. You will discover the pleasures in the splendor of our place. Come and taste a gastronomic Mediterranean cuisine. Refined dishes delicately presented that reflect our savoir-faire. Le Boccaccio, a true institution, enjoys a terrace and numerous private dining rooms, however, one must enter to discover the warm and elegant ambiance.
