Description: 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.

Combination of atmosphere, quality, taste of food was not enough for price that this restaurant offers for its dishes.

I know many other more interesting places in Nice to visit for much better “value for money”.

We had a table booked for five. We went on recommendation from our hotel reception. Excellent friendly service. Tables were beautifully set. We ordered the seafood paella and it was delicious with plenty of seafood. Large serving sizes plenty of fresh bread was also offered to soak up the juices. Excellent wine list. Would highly recommend eating here and would definitely return.

People come here for the paella. It’s as good as in Spain!! Bare in mind it takes sometime to get the paella but oh it’s so worth it.

Have the paella, large portions, must share , delicious. The waiter recommended the wine and it was fabulous. Boxed enough to feed an extra 4-5 people .

Don’t usually give bad reviews but felt that this restaurant serves very average food. It sets itself up as a high quality place, with prices to match, but the food does not live up to expectations. As it is a specialist seafood restaurant, you would expect that they would do certain basic dishes well, however, the fish soup was tasteless and the lobster dry and chewy. The portion sizes are ridiculously large and not one table while we were there finished their huge plates. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and this is a plus but we will not be going back to pay 100 euros a head for a starter and main course. We did also have a bottle of wine. It was a shame as we were really looking forward to coming here and were told that this is one of the best restaurants in Nice. We have had better meals elsewhere.
