Great little hole-in-the-wall bar located on the port in Nice harbor. Not at all fancy. Fishermen hang-out. Excellent fish & seafood of all kinds. Highly recommended for the real Nice. Cannot wait to go back later this year .......

This restaurant benefits from it's position directly on the side of the Port. We went in the evening and watched the sun setting from the terrace.

It was fairly busy and had a good ambience. The two main waitresses worked hard and were attentive to everyone but not imposing.

My fiancee had moules nantua in a good lobster bisque style sauce. I opted for a seafood mixed grill - a langoustine, two tender strips of calamari and a griddled salmon steak. This came with rice, salad and some lovely sauteed courgettes.

We had 50cl of a Provencal Rose wine and I had a 1euro espresso to close. All in all at 52 euros I would call it great value for money. Food good but nothing spectacular but service, value, position & ambience make it well worth a visit

A dinner was reasonable value for money. Service was ok. The location with sea views from across the road by the beach in Juan Les Pins was excellent.

I had calamari here and it was delicious. Wifi didn't work though. Waitresses were friendly and tried to help with it.
