Wandering the narrow streets of old Nice, we came across the small promising menu of Carpe Diem. We left very satisfied customers. I had the côte de veau poêlé au romarin, which was drenched in rosemary butter with potatoes and beans. Simple yet well salted and delicious. My husband had the ravioli à la truffe, and it was decadent. I'm... More

I dined at this restaurant years ago and was really pleased with it. Hence, the return recently. However, I was greatly disappointed with the food. I had the 3 course menu. the first course of a gogonzola and chard tart, way too salty. Second course of filet mignon, again too salty. Third course, the dessert, a lemon ricotta tard, was... More

Carpe Diem is a hidden treasure buried in the old town of Vieux Nice. Go find it, you will not be disappointed. Great service. Menu in English. The food was just beautiful! We ordered the prawns with ginger sauce; borage ravioli with lemon butter sauce; veal with rosemary sauce and veal medallion with mushroom sauce - all were delicious! Our... More

This was a perfectly delightful meal with impeccable ingredients and superb wine. the set menu at Euros21.50 was amazing with good choices. the homemade lemon sorbet was incredible and we were still talking about the fish dish in the lift of the hotel on the way to bed!

This is a small typical French bistro. The owner also cooks and waits at table! The menu is small but beautifully cooked fresh and served. We had the three course set meal at 21.50€ and a la carte also available. It was our last night in Nice and we couldn't have chosen better

This is a great little place - wonderful food (particularly the courgette and ricotta tarte, and the chicken with orange sauce), friendly service, and very reasonable prices. This was our second time here and we had great experiences both times. Highly recommended.

Staff was friendly. Sadly we had to wait 1,5h for the main course, and when we got our mains they did not taste well at all. Luckily madame made us another main course which were delicious! We recommend the truffle ravioli.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a local guide from a tour I'd been on. It's in the Old Town of Nice, but not on one of the main streets so you need to go searching. I came in relatively early (6:45pm) for dinner, and ordered from the €21.50 menu. I had the salad with cheese and walnuts, the... More

Great little restaurant just off the beaten track. Nice intimate setting where the food is served on vintage plates with lots of love. Very simple and very taste dishes. We had the zucchini tart and crispy goats cheese with almonds and honey to start followed by the truffle ravioli which was a stand out dish for us on this trip.... More
