Contemporary Cuisine

For almost 15 years, the highly decorated cuisine of brothers Gaël and Mickaël Tourteaux has been defined by aesthetic arrangements and the combination of local products with exotic spices and herb bouquets. Elegant setting, unfortunately a little cramped.

25 Rue Gubernatis, 06000 Nizza, France
Contemporary Cuisine

With its lavish decor and opulent arrangements, Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen's gourmet restaurant is one of the most original places in the city. The very personal menu is inspired by South African cuisine, plus an extra cheese room - spectacular!

12 Rue Lascaris, 06300 Nizza, France
Contemporary Cuisine

An exceptional experience in every respect: great wines, impeccable service and surprisingly contemporary cuisine full of inventiveness, precision and lightness. Virginie Basselots is not one of France's great talents for nothing.

37 Promonade des Anglais, 06000 Nice, France

Samuel Victori's menus are a delightful treat: playful, original, but also pure, with many finely knitted arcs of tension, the dishes are full of flavour, memorable and delicious, plus a sensational wine list and charming service. Favourite!

24 Rue Bonaparte, 06300 Nizza, France

Together with business partner and chef Pinja Paakkonen, ex-patissière of the "Alchemist" restaurant, top sommelier Vanessa Massé has created a unique place. First-class natural wines meet unique, purist creations.

15 rue Bottero, 06000 Nizza, France

No longer an insider tip among natural wine fans. Wine enthusiast Sébastien Perinetti and chef Elmahdi Mobarik have created a very authentic Eldorado here, where you can enjoy the best food, and even better, drink by the glass. .

23 Rue Meyerbeer, 06000 Nizza, France

Worth a visit: A detour to the legendary Grand-Hôtel du Cap Ferrat, located at the tip of an exclusive peninsula. Surrounded by Aleppo pines, you can enjoy Yoric Tièche's highly elegant Provençal-Mediterranean cuisine and award-winning wines.

71 Boulevard du Général de Gaulle, 06230 Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France

The charm of the sophisticated restaurant is revealed in its tasteful lighting and the view of the glazed kitchen. There are two menus to choose from, in which Mickaël Gracieux, a top chef with a wealth of experience, shows off all his skills.

2 Rue Gustave Deloye, 06000 Nizza, France

A certain ageing potential new star in the firmament that is already shining very brightly. The power duo Florencia Montes and Lorenzo Ragni, both previously at Mirazur, have quickly established themselves with their cuisine, which is characterised by razor-sharp purism and powerful sophistication.

5 Rue Antoine Gautier, 06300 Nizza, France

In one of the most beautiful restaurants in Nice, you can enjoy the delicately composed creations of chef Damien Andrews: lacquered sea bream, octopus carpaccio, prawn ravioli with hazelnut espuma. The terrace and veranda are a dream.

11 Quai Rauba Capeu, 06300 Nizza, France

A fancy place for advanced diners, but the food - fantastic lobster linguine, perfectly prepared sole, first-class vitello tonnato - is really good, with prices as salty as the Parmesan. But the desserts are pimped with gold.

48 Boulevard Victor Hugo, 06000 Nizza, France

Still quite young, this neo-brasserie in the Place du Pin district impresses with its highly aesthetic interior design, first-class drinks and creative adaptations of traditional French recipes such as boeuf Tokyo, tuna tataki and oeufs mayo with trout caviar.

2 Rue Martin Seytour, 06300 Nizza, France

Luxurious design, restaurant and bar concept on the sixth floor of the iconic Anantara Plaza hotel. With deluxe sushi, wagyu picanha and truffled lobster salad, you can enjoy the breathtaking sea view with a freshly mixed cocktail in your hand.

12 Avenue de Verdun, 06000 Nizza, France

Italian-French bistro to gourmet cuisine, which can be enjoyed in summer on the very popular, elegant and charming terrace in the company of Nice's haute volee. Frog legs, bone marrow, truffle pasta and lobster go well with - what else? - Champagne.

11 Rue Saint-François de Paule, 06300 Nizza, France

For more than thirty years, this institution has been cooking authentic, fresh and proud regional cuisine: panisses, pissaladière, veal tartare, octopus stuffed with chard. Cordial owners, good hospitality, warm atmosphere.

107 Avenue Saint-Lambert, 06100 Nizza, France

For self-proclaimed hedonist Allan Lalevée, it's the element of surprise that counts. The tasting menu of the informal gourmet restaurant changes every 15 days - the dishes prepared from ultra-fresh produce remain a secret until the very end.

15 Rue Cassini, 06300 Nizza, France

Perhaps the most romantic restaurant in Nice with an unobstructed view of magical sunsets at an iconic location in the city. Floating above the sea, you can enjoy summery Mediterranean gourmet cuisine made from fresh, seasonal market produce.

60 Boulevard Franck Pilatte, 06300 Nizza, France

With two restaurants, one near the opera house and the other on Place du Pin, Lorenzo Pierre's kitchen brigade is bringing a breath of fresh air to the city's plates. The focus: everything from the sea - scallop ceviche, pulpo with coconut, sole tandoori style.

4 Rue Jacques Médecin, 06300 Nizza, France

Babel Babel is many things: a bar with good drinks and a small, fine natural wine list, an uncomplicated trendy restaurant, a great sundowner spot, a pleasant place with a promenade pole position ... or simply a relaxed place with good beats and a casual atmosphere.

2 Cours Jacques Chirac, 06300 Nizza, France

Bistronomy at its best, which impresses with a warm atmosphere, a good pinch of nonchalance and unaffected feel-good dishes made from the freshest ingredients, such as crab cakes with sea urchin remoulade or gnocchi with Parmesan foam and black garlic.

12 Rue Bavastro, 06300 Nizza, France
