La Merenda, Nice

La Merenda is a very small restaurant in Nice's old town. It's not easy to find, they don't take reservations by phone, and they don't accept credit cards.

All of these ostensible faults aside, the place is absolutely incredible. As you sit at one of the two long tables in this narrow establishment, delectable aromas continually waft in from the kitchen (but never in an overbearing manner), culminating in an exquisite, traditional meal of Southern France, all made from locally sourced ingredients.

The head chef here used to work at the famous Hôtel Le Negresco's three-Michelin-starred restaurant, but eventually came to the realization that he wanted a small restaurant of his own. He is constantly in the kitchen with his three-person team at La Merenda – always a sure sign of impeccable quality in fine dining.

The outright highlight of La Merenda is their cold ratatouille, closely followed by their house speciality of green pasta. Also worth mentioning is the fish served in a thick and savoury broth, and the beef dishes of traditionally prepared intestines and beef cheeks.

The prices at La Merenda are a bit steep, but the food is worth it; a bottle of wine goes for 30-40 EUR, and with a starter and main course, a meal for two will total somewhere around 100 EUR.

Dinner, which is served at both 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM, must be reserved in advance, in person. Reservations are not required for lunch, however.
