I have tried oysters pretty much everywhere (except Atlantic side of France) and Cafe de Turin has the best ones. Their seafood mix (panache) is reasonably priced and oysters are excellent.

Service is efficient and they serve nonstop (not only lunch or dinner times). Petit Turin (new side of the restaurant) is much better than old.

We (3 persons) had a light lunch there. Good shellfish and local white wine. Good service. Expect high prices.

The cafe is located in a beautiful square in Nice; it has been in existence on the same site since 1908. It is a down to earth seafood restaurant with an Italian flavour. The fresh seafood delivery arrangements are impressive, if a trifle intrusive, and the wine list is fairly basic.

One detracting feature was our waitress: surly, critical of our varied grasp of the French language, and lacking a sense of grace or welcome, she should seek a career outside hospitality, as it does not suit her temperament. Other wait staff more than made up for her lack. Two of our party declared the crab "divine". Yourintrepid reviewer very much enjoyed the delicious and fresh grilled bream as well.

While by no means a fine diner, for high quality fresh seafood, simply cooked, the Cafe de Turin can hold its head up against any competitor.

The food is served mostly raw with some cooked options. Everything is done very simply, the cooked food is simply steamed with lemon. Oysters are served raw on ice with lemon. We had half a dozen of the size 2 oysters (they come in 3 sizes). Very fresh and a great way to enjoy seafood. Ignore the cooked items. The prices vary daily but they print them on the menu every day. Very reasonable prices - around €13 for a half dozen good sized oysters. The menu comes in a variety of languages and the waitress spoke good English. They also have a little stall outside that sells the seafood if you prefer to cook it at home. In which case, next door is a great little produce shop selling fresh fruits and vegetables.

The special for the day was only fair. The fish/loup was not cooked properly and the vegetables were poor and cold.

The waiter aplogised but did nothing else. No alternative offered!
