Gives the appearance of an upscale place, and charges as much, but food is awful. Truffle linguini was overlooked, bland, and had zero truffle flavor, despite ample truffle-like "cardboard" pieces on top (at least, that's what they tasted like). Duck was tough. Mashed potatoes were...More

An amazing location for a nice dinner. The waiters were very friendly and the food was outstanding! A menu with soup, main dish and dessert costs 35€.

In the old Nice, you will find this nice restaurant offering an outdoor terrasse. Food is excellent and the île flottante a foodie dessert. Surprised as always by the use of english in their publicity as well as on their business card ???

First night in Nice, the food was outstanding. I had the grilled squid and the flavour was truly amazing. My girlfriend and I will be revisiting for sure and for how expensive Nice is, this is extremely well valued!!

I couldnt believe how nice the food was for the price. Even if it had been more expensive it would have been worth it. This was our 2nd time in Nice and when we return this restaurant will be my first port of call.

I'm a sucker for truffle and we could smell It from the streets. A bit pricey but so is everything else in Nice:) the truffle stuffed chicken and fois gras creme brûlée were both excellent. Only one beer on the menu so my guy was...More

Possibly an opportunity to remove negative comments. We had wonderful meals in Nice apart from le grande balcon, very inferior and would not recommend.
