For an after Christmas treat, we decided to take my son's English girlfriend to Nice. As it was a little late in the day we knew that the only good restaurant open at that time of the day would be the Safari. As usual, the food was good but the service, really terrible. Having worked in restaurants I am aware... More

My wife and I had an amazing meal. At first we thought we were a bit too close to the table next to us but it just added to the atmosphere. It was a busy restaurant with a lot of hustle and bustle which made it a great place to be. The food was great, we both had pizza and... More

This place was always busy so when we saw a few empty tables one evening we decided to try it. The food was fine but overpriced. Three times the waiter told me I would get the 'full fish'. The house wine was awful. The service was bad. We waited ages to get the bill and then to eventually pay. There... More

Just picked this place walking past, really nice staff, great food, and decent price. I went with 3 others, and between us we ate most things on the menu, everyone enjoyed.

Wonderful meal last year on Christmas Day and we ate there lots of other time both this year and last. This year my partners filet steak was not blue as ordered and my lamb cutlets were not as pink as I expected. They seemed more harassed this time than last year and the food on Christmas Day was less reliable.... More

One of a number of restaurants in the flower market. Chose it because it was one of the few that wasn't Italian. Traditional French cuisine and local wines. Good wholesome Fayre served with a smile. Unpretentious surroundings. Lively even in late December. Recommmended

Restaurant has a location right in the heavy tourist section of Nice, off the farmers/flower market street. We found the food to be good quality, if a bit unremarkable and unchanging. That is what this place is about - serving a good quality but unchanging menu to some locals and many tourists day after day. Don't come here looking for... More
