Sarao Restaurant & Bar

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Lacking Spanish Verve"

Quote:
My girlfriend and I had originally planned to visit Sarao on New Year's Eve. However, we had been put off by the rather pricey menu options for the evening. There was to be music and dancing, but it was not possible to order from the menu. We would have had to choose the special menu that came in at 95 Euro and did not include wine. We believed that, at such a price, Sarao did not represent great value and that we could find better elsewhere. However, as it had a great reputation, we decided that we would visit on another occasion. Therefore, as Valentine's Day neared, we decided to make reservations.The first thing to establish is that in terms of setting and atmospherics, Sarao certainly...Read More

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Good Coffee ... Not much else"

Quote:
In a previous review, about the coffee shop Emily’s, I described and lamented the paucity of British and American style coffee shops. I waffles on for two or three paragraphs about how it is extremely difficult to find a full-sized cup of coffee and about how everywhere serves tiny cups of espresso. I went into such detail because it is a particular bug-bear of mine. However, in recent weeks, I have been cheered by the arrival of a new coffee option in Nice, Take-Away.The name of this particular establishment is decidedly misleading as there is ample seating and free Wi-Fi, which, actually, makes it a great place to sit and linger. However, it is not the moniker that particularly interests...Read More

Restaurant Chez Giorgio

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Just Awful"

Quote:
The following pages are not a review per se. To write a review, I would have needed to actually eat at Chez Giorgio. This is a 'privilige' that has, as yet, eluded me. Rather, the following paragraphs will detail one of the worst examples of customer service the world has ever known. It may be a cliche that French waiters can be rude and distant, but this example was beyond a joke.As 2011 drew to a close, my girlfriend and I began to look for a place to celebrate the New Year. We planned to go to a party in the wee small hours, but wanted to go somewhere nice for a romantic dinner before the clock struck midnight. Finding options for this in Nice was not a problem as the city is crammed wi...Read More

Yalla Grill And Green

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A Lot to Yall About"

Quote:
Having lived in Istanbul and the Sultanate of Oman, I am extremely au fait with Middle Eastern cuisine. I have certainly enjoyed my fair share of houmus and kebabs. As a result, I am always keen to try restaurants that serve such delights. Bizarrely, even though it is less than 100m from the door of my office, it took me nearly six months to sample the delights on offer at Yalla. As soon as I did, I cursed myself for missing out for so long.Yalla heralds itself as specifically Lebanese, but the cuisine is typical of much of the Middle Eastern region. The menu is split into two distinct sections. There cheap and easy lunch options and a few slightly more formal ones. The lunch pieces are ba...Read More

Safran Restaurant

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Expensive and Not Great"

Quote:
It was New Year's Eve. My girlfriend and I had sifted through page after page of restaurant listings on the internet in search of the perfect place to have a nice meal on the big evening. We had originally decided on Chez Giorgio, a fusion restaurant that served a combination of Italian and Brazilian cuisine, and which had live music. However, we had found it bereft of people and the staff seemed disinclined to actually serve us. So, we decided to head to one of our second choices, Safran. A Persian/Mediterranean restaurant.Safran has a fantastic location by the side of Nice's port. From outside, it looks very good. However, once inside, things went downhill for us very quickly. First of a...Read More
