People come here for the paella. It’s as good as in Spain!! Bare in mind it takes sometime to get the paella but oh it’s so worth it.

The old saying is, “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.” This is not an inexpensive restaurant.

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.
