Polly & Cie

Found at 6 avenue du Ray, 06100 Nice, this cute place is a bit of a secret. It was shared with us by our interns, who lived with university students who knew little gems are to be found outside the tourist hub. You might want to give it a try if you fancy heading just out of the centre of Nice to something a bit different, especially if you have teenagers to impress. It won’t break the bank, prices are on the cheaper side, and the food will suit most palates.

La Petite Maison

When the president or a rock star comes to town, it’s usually in the paper the next day that they dined at La Petite Maison. When you see the restaurant from the outside, you’d be surprised – at first glance it looks like many of the other eateries along the posh part of the Old Town, just a little bigger than the norm. Then up close you notice the sculptured sweets at the entrance, the large terrace area is encased in burgundy curtains and there are plenty of chandeliers alongside flickering candlelight for a warm, relaxed ambience.

You can easily miss Rue Dalpozzo, but you shouldn’t if you’re looking for great little venues where the friendly vibes and excellent cuisine brings more word of mouth business than any advertising or high -rents-for-high-footfall ever could. The locals eat here, alongside the tourists who have found the street on a previous visit and keep coming back for more.

For a few years now, amidst the glamour, sunshine and joli de vivre, there’s been a gremlin in Nice. Not for much longer! The dust that has plagued the city is finally being swept up, the barricades are gone from walkways and everywhere there are beaming prideful smiles as the city embraces the new airport to port tramline.

Le Jardin des Arènes de Cimiez

Enjoy pure relaxation as you sit under the rows of olive trees, with a book, a picnic and a blanket – there’s nothing better on a sunny day. The red façade of the Matisse museum makes for a great backdrop, contrasting nicely with the blue sky behind. You will often see the local French men playing the popular game of boules in the gardens; or if you’re lucky, you might witness a lone musician playing some gentle melodies on their guitar, keeping up the atmosphere of overwhelming calm and peace.

OK, you may be slightly breathless when you’ve climbed the steps, but the park and view is well worth the effort. If you’ll find the steps a challenge, there’s an ascenseur (elevator) at the tip of rue de Ponchettes, near the Old Town. This is one of three entrances to this park sat on top of the city.
