Best restaurants Nice France

If you’re thinking of buying property in Nice, then the Old Town is definitely somewhere to consider due to its lively atmosphere and proximity to the beaches. It even features as one of our top ten reasons to come to Nice, which you can check out HERE.

If you’ve already blown the budget on furniture for your new Nice apartment then you may be looking to eat out on a budget or just looking for some simple local food that tastes great. Here is our guide to the best places that are really good value for money:

Fenocchio’s is the extremely popular ice cream parlour located in Place Rossetti in the Old Town. This truly is the best ice cream in Nice and there are plenty of flavours to choose from; from the exotic fruits, to the weird and wonderful tomato and basil flavour, and everything in between! A particular favourite here at Attika is the Pina Colada and Chocolate with Ginger!

Although Fenocchio is very well known, it doesn’t hold the monopoly on ice cream parlours in Nice. There are many, many different gelaterias in the Old Town, including Gelateria Azzuro and Crema di Gelato, both of which offer, although not quite as extensive a range as Fenocchio, plenty of different flavours for you to mix and match.

The Cours Saleya is home to many a restaurant, with some pricey and some affordable. You should definitely check out La Favola for very well-priced and mouth-watering dishes and the Festival de la Moule offers an all you can eat buffet! There are two set menus, one from 12, 90€ with three choices of sauce and one from 14, 50€ with 11 choices!

For the best pizzas outside Italy, you have to visit Bar du Coin, 2 rue Droite as they are not only mouth-watering but at great prices! Another place worth visiting is Stuzzico, located on Rue St Gaétan, for very cheap and very large pizzas!

If you fancy taking a picnic to the beach then head to the market in the Cours Saleya first to get some fougasse, a bread made with olives and herbs that is a local speciality, and some cheese for a proper French style lunch.

If you feel like a gastro pub meal then the Snug and Cellar is your port of call in the Old Town. You can find them on rue Droite, near the steps to the Chateau and they pride themselves on fresh and delicious food. Their pub is centered on a bar, of course, and Happy Hour is every day from 8-10pm. Great prices
