Loved this restaurant. We came here for lunch and got the fixed price menu with soup, main course and dessert for 27 euros. The soup was spectacular, a creamy squash a l'orange. The main course was either fish or beef and both were very good....More

Nice is now a lively and talented restaurant town. When we first started coming here frequently, a good 30 years ago, there were a few bastions of fine cooking and lots of forgettable food not even fit for tourists. L'Ane Rouge was one of the...More

We went to L'ane Rouge on 14 February. The restaurant was full, the food was excellent - especially the soup sprinkled generously with truffle - and the service was excellent even though the restaurant was very busy. We couldn't have wished for more. We will...More

Various menues, and la carte of course. Tried the Menue Marche. Very good indeed. Great soup, fantastic fish and good dessert. Attentive staff and very good sommelier. Will be back!

You need to trek round the harbour for this one, but it gave us the best meal we had in a week's stay in Nice (admittedly most of the bistrots were disappointing). Simple fare, but beautifully devised. Daurade bouchon was a delectable main course.

Located in an old house in the port of Nice, L'Âne Rouge and its pretty little terrace are well known in Nice. The food is simple, based on fresh, local produce, yet is chic and refined at the same time. The menu is based around fish and shellfish, used to produce the imaginative dishes of Chef Michel Devillers. Try the courgette flower with sardines served with Riviera noodles; braised sea bass with fresh coconut or parfum of haddock and Chipencornet. Otherwise choose from the great fish of the day selection such as gilthead bream, red sea bream, sea bass, John Dory, all caught by Mr Gilbert the fisherman. As far as desserts go, the chocolate macoranade and the Bulgarian ice cream are irresistible.
