The Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France is one of those special places when you visit, you will never forget. It’s a beautiful, wide pedestrian only walkway lined with majestic palms on one side and the azure Bay of Angels on the other. This impressive location serves as the backdrop for the outstanding restaurant Plage Beau Rivage Nice. The Plage Beau Rivage is one of the best dining locations on the French Riviera.

The canopy covered Zen dining area of this restaurant is front and centre to the Mediterranean with options of dining directly on the beach or on sun loungers.
The relaxing atmosphere is perfect for spending an afternoon casually enjoying the fresh local cuisine with the finest wines and mixed cocktails.
The menu consists of some classic french regional dishes made with the freshest local Ingredients. The wines offered here from Provence and other notable french regions are an outstanding collection for all price points. We knew we had to start with the classic namesake dish of the region, the salad Nicoise, which was the best we have ever had. It seems simple to create but the quality and freshness of each ingredient made this dish so good.
For the main course we decided to have the dish of the day which was a local steam cooked sea bass with quinoa and local vegetables. Cooked to perfection, the tender fish tasted of the sea and was obviously extremely fresh. Matched perfectly with the recommendation of our waiter, the wine was so good we still talk about it today. Even “House “ wines in France are incredibly tasty and top quality.
Desserts at this restaurant are all homemade so you can’t go wrong with any choice but we chose the tart duet which was an amazing treat.
If this restaurant were anywhere else, it would still be an excellent place to dine but the combination of the mesmerizing location and top quality cuisine make the Plage Beau Rivage a one of kind must-try dining experience. It is one of those places to splurge and enjoy at least once, an afternoon or evening to remember forever. Here is a great guide to things to do and see in Nice this winter.
Thank you so much for an absolutely delicious lunch and mesmerizing views.
