– The top michelin star restaurants in Nice –
Guests visiting the French Riviera can enjoy an unforgettable meal in one of The top michelin star restaurants in Nice or recommended restaurants found throughout the region.
We are fortunate to have some of the best restaurants in France that utilize fresh, seasonal ingredients found in abundance such as wide variety of fish and seafood from the Mediterranean Sea, fresh fruits and vegetables grown in the region and fragrant spices such as rosemary, thyme, and basil. The traditional cuisine here on the Cote d’Azur is healthy as it is based on a Mediterranean diet that uses olive oil instead of butter for most dishes.
