A first star in 1977, a second in 1981, and the third in 2008: Le Petit Nice has a discreetly appealing charm and is calmly welcoming. It’s more of a family home than a hotel or restaurant. Le Petit Nice is a seaside inn where time has stopped.
Overlooking the sea, facing the horizon, all your senses alive to the sea, in the bright light of this three-star restaurant…
Like a lookout over the Mediterranean, you survey the horizon and then sit back to enjoy a unique gastronomic experience : they go hand in hand. Welcome to this elegant theatre designed so that you don’t miss any of the beautiful aquatic scenery stretching out lazily before your eyes.
As season follows season, more than sixty-five fish from the Mediterranean pass through the kitchens: dentex, sea bream, pelamid, whiting, comber, common sea bream, moray eel… The daily catch, as fresh as can be, is brought directly from the boats of traditional fishermen and women and cooked straight away. Some fish have been forgotten, others have fallen out of favour: the trick is to find a way to prepare them so that they retain all their lively flavour to bring out their best. The flavours of the Mediterranean Sea, completely different from those of the Atlantic Ocean, are concentrated here in a unique gastronomic experience.
