Restaurants

A small selection of favourite restaurants to book in advance.

Walking distance - Bistronome has recently opened up around the corner from our local square.  It is a small restaurant with a varied menu serving very good food at reasonable prices with a specials board that changes every week.  Sadly not open every night.  Open for lunch Monday to Saturday and Friday & Saturday evenings.  11 Avenue du Ray.  Tel:  0981 483285.

A la Table du Marché is a longer walk or you can jump on the bus from the square as it stops outside the front door.  Best at lunch as it borders the market at Liberation but also opens 2 nights a week.  Well worth a try as all fresh produce comes from the market.  Email:  latabledumarche.gmail.com.  Tel:  0493 784377.

Downtown - Nice Art Bistro.  This is one of the best restaurants to be found in Nice although a bit more expensive than your average bistrot so good for special occasions.  Recently opened, it has a wonderful menu and everything is just delicious.  www.niceartbistro.fr.  Tel:  0493 915798.

Comptoir du Marché (0493 134501 - 8 rue du Marché) & Bar des Oiseaux (0493 802733 - 5 rue St Vincent).  Lovely bistro restaurants situated in the old town, with interesting menus.  Bar des Oiseaux concentrates on pastas and slightly more Italian influence - my favourite.   Best to book in advance.

L'Oliviera.  8 bis, rue du Collet, old town Nice.  Email:  nb@oliviera.com.  Tel:  0493 130645.  Nadim has the best olive oil in Nice - food is delicious as well.  Everything is locally sourced.   Mail order for oils:  www.oliviera.com
