A small and fantastic restaurant with an outdoor terrace overlooking the old harbor. The price, service and food quality are all unbelievably good. You can get an exquisite and innovative five-course tasting menu for only around €42. You must try their specialty of courgette flower stuffed with a fantastic fish mousse. Be sure to call ahead to check if they are open because the owners like to close for a few weeks in July and dates seem to differ. You don't want to miss this place.

No phone, no credit cards and just a few seats. However, if you want to have a real and excellent dinner of traditional "cuisine Niçoise," this is where to go. The place has character - just ask its owner, who left a trendier restaurant for the La Merenda. I don't ask why - just happy he did.
Nice has mostly pebble beaches. We took off for Villefranche-sur-Mer, a small town only 20 minutes away by the TAM 100 bus with great sandy beaches.
