Of course, at the end of a day of beach going, even when close to a few great bars or cafes, you will want to enjoy the excellent cuisine that defines this region of France. Be sure you sample the local wines, Bandol and Cassis among them. St. Raphael is an excellent spot for wine tastings, and the hills around Nice are also excellent for this, as well.

Remember that you will also want to visit markets to sample fresh local cheeses, olive oils, and olives, too. Local specialties include the famous bouillabaisse, socca, pistou, and salade Nicoise. Pizza is actually another popular treat here, but unlike European and American versions, it is made with thin crusts and served with olives and a spicy sauce.

Among the most frequently referred restaurants are:

Le Marche du Course Saleya Socca   Nice
La Merenda   Nice
La Chaumiere    Nice
Les Arcades   Biot
Le Café de la Fontaine  La Turbie
Hostellerie Jerome  La Turbie
La Vigie   Monte Carlo
Bacon   Cap d'Antibes
La Vague d'Or  Saint Tropez

Within this list you will find restaurants offering fine dining or excellent local specialties, with some specializing in breakfasts or baked goods and others offering memorable, multiple-course dinners.


"Isle Blue is everything they say they are. They were a pleasure to deal with and were very responsive and informative. The pictures on their website are exactly what you end up getting and they provide full concierge service throughout your stay. My family and I had an amazing time and before we even returned home, we went to the Isle Blue website to check out their inventory for our next vacation. They really are just that good!"
