I had heard that the dining has gotten quite good in the restaurants on Nice beaches. Rumor confirmed. I just had lunch at Lido Plage and was most impressed with the quality of the food and the friendliness of the service.
Lido Plage is slightly west of Nice’s Old Town, with a menu that spans “Indian Tapas” (didn’t try it but sounds adventurous), sandwiches, the inevitable Salade Nicoise, a handful of pizzas and, my choice, a fritto misto. It was a delicious combination of the kind of omega-3 fish you’re supposed to eat but probably don’t. The sardines and rouget were crisp-fried and accompanied by roasted artichoke heart and courgette. For an additional health boost the salad “on the side” was an enormous tangle of fresh greens.
The comfy chairs and warm decoration made it comfortable to linger and the Mediterranean was just a few metres away. At €19, it was pricey but worth it.Follow me!
