Le Chantecler in Negresco

With its two Michelin stars, is one of those places you might overlook until a very special occasion arises. Life’s too short! Go now – it’s a fab experience, if you can get in that is, early-bird booking is essential (it took us three attempts before we secured a table for four).

Alounak

Alounak prides itself on the hearty meals suitable for most eating genres: vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free friendly and carnivores (though meat dishes are a token few – the flip side of a standard restaurant). So, as the owner says himself, it’s a restaurant for vegans who have non-vegan friends. The owner is a vegan, and is very happy to talk vegan, but also happy in the company of meat-eaters too. It’s just good honest food, from an owner with a similar personality.

Pékin Restaurant

Perhaps the best restaurant of its kind in Nice, Pékin is an absolute must for vegans and vegetarians. Think a three course-all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet-style meal but with a twist. The restaurant has been around a long time, but converted to being fully vegetarian in 2017. Where a dish is vegan, you’ll see a sign on the menu (over 50% of the offerings are).

Au Vieux Four in Port

Often hailed as the best pizzeria in Nice, Au Vieux Four is not one to miss. Cooked in the “Vieux Four” (old oven) these pizzas are baked to perfection. Chef Pascal Fritsch was awarded for his Pizza Campagnarde, the best pizza in the Côte d’Azur, and the second best pizza in France for 2006. We know that’s a long time ago now, and Pascal isn’t always at the furnace anymore, but it’s still very, very good. In peak months, you’ll struggle to get a table if you go after 8pm, especially at weekends, but they can take reservations and speak enough English for you to call and book.

L’Ane Rouge in Port

Almost a Port institution, this restaurant has been Michelin starred for years, and remains so for 2018. It’s also well regarded by Conde Nast traveller’s guide, and others. For a special occasion, this is a gourmet treat, high on flavour with superior presentation. With its port-side location, it’s speciality is of course fish; the John Dory fish in scaled potatoes with diced peppers, olives and anchovy is a pebbles-staff favourite. Chef Michel Devillers is one of the best in the game and never fails to produce new combinations, the menu changes often, largely governed by what’s been caught that day.

Stuzzico in the Old Town

It might just look like a hole in the wall but it’s much more exciting than that. Stuzzico’s is one of the best places to find Italian food in Nice and handily located – just off Rue de la Préfecture – which you may or may not know, is home to many of the bars in Nice. So if you find yourself there and you’d like a quick bite before calling it a night, join the swaying queues here.
