No seafood starting from April, although the place is listed as a sea food place. Considering its distant location, it was quite disappointing to discover this when we came to the restaurant. Otherwise tasty food, service is ok.

Hi Anton, I am sorry about your disappointment. Our website show the dates of our seafood period. We want to have fresh products and quality products. And summer is not the seafood time. I hope you will understand. Have a good day!

You can get all kind of sea food in reasonable prices and the quality is excellent. Best oysters since I learned to open myself and started to eat oysters there every time I visit Nice.

If you're lucky what you order it's good. If you're not, you can eat horrible fish, for example, like very smelly tuna fish like I did, then gently let them know that it wasn't good and find anyway 20 euro in the bill for the...More

L'etablissement est une institution. Implantee depuis 1948 dans le paysage nicois, elle affiche un cachet tres parisien avec ses banquettes, ses boiseries acajou, son comptoir et son grand miroir.Il faut dire que c'est une affaire familiale qui se transmet de generation en generation, avec toujours la meme envie : proposer une restauration de qualite, avec un accent particulier mis sur les plateaux de fruits de mer.C'est d'ailleurs cette principale activite qui fait sa reputation. Les differentes formules de plateaux de fruits de mer sont en effet tres sollicitees. De debut decembre a fin avril, profitez des coquillages, des fruits de mer comme l'oursin peche du jour et des crustacees. Vous pouvez choisir de les deguster sur place ou bien prendre un plateau a emporter.
