Concessions, Restaurants and Evening Entertainment

As part of the French fondness for food, Nice hosts a large variety of restaurants. The Niçoise cuisine has a strong influence from nearby Italy and the Provence area including a large variety of seafood. Many restaurants, which are found in large numbers in the old town and surroundings, offer relatively inexpensive menus for lunch and dinner. Many restaurants and cafés have terraces, which are perfect places for a chat.  Especially in the old town, there are numerous pubs; frequently, they offer live music. Restaurants can be checked out at
