Oliviera restaurant

We’ve been coming to this small restaurant (which doubles as a speciality olive oil shop) for over a decade now. It remains my absolute favourite, and almost every time I dine, I overhear voices from other diners who murmur in delight at the flavours.

Bistrot d'Antoine

When we speak with our Pebbles guests, and they ask for recommendations for traditional French cuisine at reasonable prices, we invariably direct them to Bistrot d’Antoine, the cosiest, most popular and romantic bistro tucked away in the back streets of the Old Town. A reflection of the local meat and seasonal produce on offer, the menu changes on a regular basis, but you can expect to find classic French fare: tender veal kidney, rich pork stew, and grilled duck breast. The selection of fish is also impressive: restaurant-goers praise the calamari, the sword fish carpaccio, and the filet de maigre (a type of fish native to the Mediterranean).

Annual events

Thousands of visitors land at Nice airport annually for various events including the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes film festival. Flights around these dates are sold at a premium, sometimes a hefty one. For example, as of today (8 months in advance) you can pick up Easyjet flights at the beginning of May for around 30 euros return but move the dates to the 23nd May – 28th May and you won’t get a seat for less than 150 euros – triple the price. You can expect it to triple again closer to the date.

Shops, restaurants & bars

The French schedule and traditional opening times might not completely mirror what you’re used to home. The French take their lunch and leisure time seriously, although as a tourist hotspot, Nice will have significantly more doors open than in industrial towns.
