On-line Guide: Chez Olive
12 avenue Félix Faure
Cool without being pretentious, you’ll enjoy Chez Olive’s chic interior space. Moss covered walls, slick bar stools, and comfortable armchairs all from which you can enjoy traditional Provencal food such as ravioli and focaccia, beef daube and cod fillets.
There’s a sunny terrace to sit out on and enjoy in the summer months and sip champagne with cucumber or a flask of wine.
There’s enough for vegetarians, and portions are generous and the ingredients high-quality. At Chez Olive you won’t find limp lettuce or stale sourdough: everything is made fresh to order and the menu is composed of delicious dishes made from expertly selected ingredients. Don’t miss out on the lemon meringue, or pistachio crumble.
Downstairs, there is a tiny épicerie where you can buy artisan olive oils and pasta; perfect for holiday gifts that won’t break the bank – and a great way to remember Niçois delicacies long after you return home.
Opens daily 11:00-00:00
