We know you’re intrigued about the cuisine on the French Riviera, whether you’re renting a villa on Cap Ferrat or somewhere else. Read on to discover the best places to eat on the Cote d’Azur for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Some Riviera bakeries and cafes open at 6 a.m., so you may have your morning meal as soon as you get up. Croissants, pain au chocolat, apple pies, and other pastries are available. Those of you with a sweet tooth can try the viennoiseries with almond filling. You won’t be let down at all!
You can always go to a hotel brunch on the Riviera if you’d like a heartier meal around lunchtime. One of our favorite places to have breakfast is on the Marylebone Riviera, where we can enjoy our avocado toast or chia pudding while taking in the view of the water.
Despite the slower pace of life on the Riviera, several lunch establishments remain open all day. African Queen, located in Beaulieu-sur-Mer, is known as one of the restaurants with the most accommodating schedules. The niçoise salad, fish soup, and other classic fish and meat dishes are the restaurant’s specialties.
Conversely, most eateries serve lunch from noon to 4 o’clock, and you may choose from a wide variety of menu options. The restaurants in the area provide a variety of cuisines, including Italian, French, Chinese, Japanese, and Indian. We highly recommend traveling the short distance to your favorite Italian eatery over the border, as you will have an unforgettable dining experience.
There is a large variety of options for dinner, and they range from casual to upscale in terms of decor and ambiance. There are places that need formal attire, as well as a beach café that is ideal for relaxing. Just because Monaco is so near to the Riviera doesn’t mean that it’s not worth seeing on its own. Everything you could want is here, from traditional French bistros to five-star fine dining establishments.
Dolceaqua and San Remo are two of Italy’s most famous cities, and they both have excellent restaurants that you must try if you rent a vehicle there.
