We chose to eat inside because smoking is still allowed in the patio areas of France. We were glad of our decision. The upstairs is elegantly decorated with a charming aquarium centrally located. We had oysters on the half shell, which were acceptable. But nothing compares to our New England oysters, so we were okay with the serving. We ordered... More

Food is good and portions are big too however be careful since they charge the highest price although we asked for table wine. Service is mediocrely. When we confronted the waitress she denied that we wanted table wine. Just be careful.

Me and my girlfriend came to this place and ordered 6 oysters, glass of wine and dessert, but the waiter said it is not enough to eat here!!! Order something else and find another place to eat. Awful experience.

The location would expose any unsuspecting client to be trapped in a tourist place. But, I had looked up Tripadvisor before and the reviews were generally quite positive, so we went. Reception was informal, but nice. I ordered a Spanish sounding fish plate with a variety of fish, a kind of pesce misto had I been in Italy. My wife... More

We had business dinner in Boccaccio restaurant. Despite it was ordered menu (same for all), dinner was delicious. Great salmon starter and excellent fish. I'll recommend it for private trips too. Shells & fish look really fresh and tasty.

I ate the best oysters there for the past 20 years. The service is just perfect, the heated terrace is so comfortable, a Must in Nice.

Fabulous! The seafood on ice was truly impressive, the wild sea bass baked in salt was creamy deliciousness, the Ile Flottante floated my boat. Top class dining.

These guys will take you for whatever they can. Sure the lunch was good. But then they decided to charge me 8 Euros for a juice and 9 euros for a bottle of water (both of which are conviently not priced on the menu). Stay away...these types of tourist traps give Nice a bad name

A restaurant specializing in seafood and fish, established since 1973 situated on the pedestrian zone at a couple steps from Place Massena. The establishment is particularly renowned for its quality and freshness of its products, its cuisine and service. You will discover the pleasures in the splendor of our place. Come and taste a gastronomic Mediterranean cuisine. Refined dishes delicately presented that reflect our savoir-faire. Le Boccaccio, a true institution, enjoys a terrace and numerous private dining rooms, however, one must enter to discover the warm and elegant ambiance.
