Le Bistro Dalpozzo, Nice - excellent service
Le Bistro Dalpozzo, 10 Rue Dalpozzo, 06000, Nice
As we were a group of 5, we pre-booked our table here for the first evening of our stay. After confusing the waiter in the restaurant next door by insisting we had a table booked – which we clearly didn’t! – we found ourselves in a comfortable restaurant with a brilliant waiter. He was helpful, attentive, and very patient as everyone wanted to try different items on the menu. In the end it was worth it for a superb meal.
The 3-course set menu had a good range of dishes to choose from, including the soup and duck, so was excellent value at €19. Other courses were quite expensive from the A La Carte menu, as you would expect, choices including snails or scallops as starter and sea bass or lamb as the main. Desserts included the traditional crème brulee and tarte tatin, so everyone was very happy with their choice.
They made a great fuss of us, especially as one of the party was celebrating her birthday. The waiter arrived with her dessert, complete with flambe dish and a candle, and treated us all to the Limoncella at the end. It was not the cheapest meal we had, and wine was €32 a bottle (but very nice!) but it was a lovely way to celebrate and enjoy a typical French meal. We were expecting live music with a jazz singer but, apparently, she was not able to perform on this night so a little bit of a disappointment although it didn’t spoil our evening. Average €40 per person + wine.
