Nice,France -Brasseries, Plages & Cafes

Since Nice, France is situated in the French Riviera, along the Mediterranean Sea, it has an abundance of all kinds of seafood. The speciality in this South of France area is Seafood! Lots of it! It offers fresh prawns, shrimps, all kinds of fish, squids, mussels and oysters to name a few. Nice, France also has a Michelin Star restaurant, Chantecler, located at the Luxury Hotel Le Negresco.

Here are some of the places we visited and tried when we visited Nice, France:


 Located near the Promenade Des Anglais, along the Mediterranean Sea,  it has a Flower and Vegetable market during the week and the buildings around it are full of all kinds of seafood restaurants.
