After intending to visit this restaurant for many years, it was always closed or too busy on my visits to Antibes. This time we got lucky on the first Sunday evening they had decided to open for some time. Initially surprised at our 7.30pm reservation...More

We ordered Paella Marinera after 30mins’ wait. It wasn’t mind-blowing, but OK. The rice was correctly flavoured, however the fish was bland. Altogether, for the price, it was underwhelming. However, Antibes is not exactly teeming with authentic spanish cooking, so in that sense it’s well...More

Just happened on the restaurant as it was opening. Must have gotten the last table because it filled up soon thereafter. They specialize in paella and it is with good reason. A steaming hot, large and delicious serving appeared in front of me and soon...More

Nothing worked. 1. The tablecloth was dirty when we came, the waitress didn't bother to take it away, instead she just put a clean one on top. 2. We ordered a bottle of Rosé, we only got it in the middle of the main course...More

As travellers we often find ourselves eating at late hours. I was initially happy to see the late opening hours and we arrived 45minutes before closing time. Unfortunately were received with a lot of attitude saying they won't serve us and that we should reserve...More
