Reasons for trip

There are so many bars, cafes and restaurants along Rue Louis Gassin and the daily market that it is difficult to choose, but whichever one you go for, you will not be disappointed. As it was drizzling with a cool breeze, we opted for just inside the door of Pain & Cie – a perfect location on a corner to watch the world go by in a cosy, friendly atmosphere. A good choice to start our short break in Nice.

Plat du Jour was the recommendation, steak and fries and a glass of wine for €14, definitely a good choice for lunch. A good-sized succulent steak, perfectly cooked, with grilled tomato, fries and fresh bread. As with all the other restaurants we found in this part of France, the house wine is very acceptable whether red or white, and the set menu is excellent value. We kept an eye on other meals brought out from the kitchen and they were all well-presented, very appetizing, and altogether good value.

We even had two extra glasses of wine and were surprised to find them given free when our bill came. A lively atmosphere, busy lunchtime, but service was quick and efficient. It was certainly a good choice as a break from the chore of visiting all those little shops and boutiques!
