Walked all round the port and picked this place as we fancied the 3 course lunch menu which they all have at around 22 to 25 Euros but this one looked good and we weren't wrong.We both chose the crab salad starter which was nice and fresh tasting with a really tasty dressing,then Sea bass with saute'd mushrooms and potatoes this was cooked nicely and was a nice portion then the dessert of dark and white chocolate mousse with raspberries and shortbread with a lemon drizzle was delicious.You could tell everything was fresh and homemade and it was only 24 Euros.Well worth a visit.

Tried 3 courses meal for 29eur. Salads, fish and dessert. For dessert we had creme brulee, which was fantastic. For main, sea bass with wegies. Fish itself was very good cooked and had a lovely crispy skin, veggies bit disappointment, but maybe its just not for our taste, we would loved it grilled or sth. Salads with scallops was very good, just bread didn't feel fresh. Overall 4.5, but cant rate that, so in advance - 5 ;)

Had the 27 euro set dinner menu of salad with crab and seabass, then seabass and cepes, then a blini with chocolate, strawberries, raspberries and a sort of creme anglais, with a 500 ml bottle of Provençal white for 12 euros plus an espresso. It was all very good, while not haute cuisine, promptly and pleasantly served. Family run and not plastic. Worth eating here!

Spotted the restaurant whilst wandering around the port on our first day in Nice.
Looked good so we took a chance. We were not disappointed. Sat outside so had lovely views of the port.
Food was really good and that is why I am surprised that it is so low down the listings.
My wife had an excellent salad and I had cod that was so fresh you could taste the sea. We both then had the summer fruit 'crumble' - which was a chilled dish with fresh fruit pieces, yogurt and a crumb topping. We both said how good it was. Presentation was excellent and the guy serving us was helpful, friendly and added to our pleasure.
Thank you Marlin.

Very good, relatively simple, fresh ingredients cooked in an obviously family run restaurant. Definitely recommended
