Where To Eat In Nice, France
Nice France is a popular side trip from Paris – with a proximity to the Mediterranean and Italy, these are exactly the types of foods you will find there. Olive oil & olives, lemon, artichoke are everywhere and of course, pasta and pizza are extraordinarily popular.
These are my go-to favourite spots in the area where everything is delicious, fresh food & natural wine, laid-back and casual.
Don’t miss the Cours Saleya food market for your produce, flowers, etc. but avoid the touristy places to eat surrounding it.
La Part des Anges is Olivier Labarde’s wine shop & grocery, and where you want to stock up on natural wine, charcuterie and cheese to take away, or grab a bottle from the shelves and sit down to eat & drink in the dining room.
La Mise Au Verre is La Part des Anges’ bistrot just around the corner sourcing seasonal top-quality products to pair with the fab natural wine list.
Restaurant Le Canon is Sébastien Perinetti’s place near the Promenade – a local must.
Restaurant Bel Oeil near the port keeps the food fresh and simple.
Restaurant Peixes is Armand Crespo’s new cevicheria place near the Place Massena follows his other hits, classic Bistrot d’Antoine, and Comptoir du Marché.
La Merenda is Dominique Le Stanc’s tiny spot near the market (but not one of the touristy places) and is Paris’ equivalent of L’Avant Comptoir, no phone, cash only, and good luck getting a bar stool. However, the who’s who of food industry are sitting elbow to elbow having made the pilgrimage to get there – so get there early for a spot.
Le Vinivore is a natural wine bistrot near the port and is also a must stop on the food industry list for Nice.
Le Bistrot Du Fromager is a cheese, charcuterie & natural wine lover’s dream, with traditional bistrot plates.
