Light and attractive furniture, admirably spaced, so you can conduct a conversation at normal voice levels. There were 4 of us at 8:30 pm on a Saturday evening. By 9:15 pm the restaurant was full. Very efficient: a young couple, owners, run the kitchen, which is modern and functional., and open to view without being disturbing. One waitress assists these... More

The food is very good, the atmosphere is quite nice. Nice selection of wine. However, it is a tad on the expensive side.

It is cosy, pleasant and familial restaurant, that offers a short and unconventional menu, far from the tourist formulas abused along the Riviera. The cuisine is fressh, simple (but not simplistic, I would rather say minimalisti), definitely good and characterized by a feminine, gentle touch that makes the different. We enjoyned all the dishes we ordered: a cream of fennels... More

Limited menu (a good idea) reasonable prices nice simple decor and excellent food and service. My wife's dish of beef with chocolate and mine of seared Red Tuna were superb, entrees too, Celeriac with a remoulade sauce, the white wine we ordered "White Sprirt" was very good as well. Seems to be frequented by a nice quiet clientelle, no problem... More

Homely food at reasonable prices. We tried the risotto St Jacques and the risotto Marsala, both excellent. The Charlotte pudding and the chou à la crème de café were delicious and freshly baked. The wine list was a bit limited. The restaurant is nicely designed, we will go back.

have visited bel oeil several times and enjoyed its homely food and quirky atmosphere but on this occasion the meal was a little disappointing - the creme du barry with boudin noir was cold and the pudding was mushy - rather unappetising - the slow cooked lamb shoulder was unflavoursome and having been reheated from its original 6hour cooking had...

I've heard several friends mention this place and finally wondered in. Its a good size and very well designed. A welcoming and warm place, somewhere that makes you feel at ease, as do the proprietors. Perfect place to share a quite evening. A fine 3 course meal. Great experience. Will be back!

Three of us came here for dinner on the recommendation of our friends. Bel Oeil is located just off the cool Port quartier, where we live. The welcome was warm, the decor modern eclectic, the service excellent and the food very tasty and original. The limited menu works as we all found several options from which to choose.
