You must book as very busy all year round and excellent service. Owner can be off hand but no big deal. Our snails were lagged and juicy followed by excellent sea bass and my friend lobster which was fresh and large. 2 bottles of wine so bill 300 euro but well worth a visit and will go again to this...

A friend told us about this restaurant so we went . Food is good although a big expensive but the serving staff is not friendly, you do not feel welcome, not a friendly word, nothing telling about the menu, not asking , do you like your food, everything ok. Can I offer you another drink. They were glad that we... More

Rude waitress told us that they accept customers with reservations only. Tables were empty and we needed a quick lunch. We probably did not fit their desired profile.

Still owerwhelmed about our dinner the night before at the Michelin starred restaurant Blue Bay in Monte Carlo, we thought we could have a light lunch on this nice-looking shaded terrass. We went for the door and a waiter met us looking up and down with this "what are they doing here"-face. He told us that this restaurant only takes... More

I have been, since I grew up in Nice, for more than 40 years to La Petite Maison, with the same pleasure !!! What an experience ... simply based on two ingredients : our hostess, Nicole, helped by her lovely daughter today, as well as an amazing kitchen, where all the typical specialities of "la cuisine Niçoise" have been revisited...

Recommended by the Negresco's concierge, this place did not disappoint. From appetizers to dessert, the food was savory and nicely plated. Not over the top, rather a very reliable and tasty find. We had a simple roasted chicken for a main course that was as crispy and moist as the herb scented bird could have been. Wines were very fairly... More

Okay, why do I go to La Petite Maison? I'm an xPat living in Nice and when I want a fun dining experience this is one of the places to go. The setting is elegant - tables dressed in white linen adds to the atmosphere and sets the stage for an enjoyable evening. The service is very good but don't... More

Went with four others and we would say it was the best restaurant we have eaten at in Europe. Yes the potential exists for poor service, but night we were there everything was great. Young and maybe too casual wait staff. I have been to Europe 12 times in the past five years and have eaten at pretty good places... More
