The most amazing infusion of South African oddities into a most delicious experience. Simply loved it and Jan is up there with the greats. Put him up there with my favourite Tom Kitchin. Brilliant experience not to be missed in Nice.

Hi, I live in Nice and have been to Jan a number of times and I highly recommend it. You can write to me with questions in English, Spanish or French but unfortunately I couldn't read your question.
