A well-deserved Michelin star in Nice: Restaurant JAN (18. February 2017)

It is three years ago since I have last paid the JAN a visit. Since, the restaurant has received it’s first Michelin star – and I think I can say, it deserves it. While last time the service was not really satisfying, it was much much better this visit. I went for the “Menu Midi” […]

12. October 2014: Brasserie Les Ponchettes

The Brassiere Les Ponchettes is located in the market area of Nice – and the place – while mainly visisted by locals shopping on a Sunday is definitely nothing special. It is absolutely perfect to do some people watching but besides that there is nothing too appealing about it. The waiter is friendly but quite […]

12. October 2014: Restaurant Le Colonial Café @ Hotel Le Méridien Nice

The breakfast at the Le Colonial Café is a bit of a disappointment. The selection is somehow limited and you do not find anything special at the buffet which is definitely a pity. But to remain fair – all the main elements for a proper continental breakfast can be found. The room itself is somewhat […]

11. October 2014: Restaurant Jan

The Restaurant Jan is definitely among the top ranking restaurants in Nice – which is funny especially for one reason: they serve primarily South-African food. As always, I decided to go for the tasting menu (EUR 115.00 including pairing wines). Before the menu officially started some “bread sticks with olive elements” were served – while […]

11. October 2014: Brasserie Le Flore

There is a large street where you can find nothing but local stores in a big market – beyond that, there are also quite some restaurants and after a long hike up to the hill to have a beautiful overview over Nice and onto the ocean, the Brasserie Le Flore was the right place to […]

11. October 2014: Restaurant Le Pass’port

The port of Nice is nice (haha, what a great sentence!). But what makes it even nicer are the little restaurants where only the locals go. More or less by coincidence we walked into one and soon realized that we are the only tourists as everybody in the restaurant knew each other. In order to […]

10. October 2014: Apotheka Bar

The Apotheka Bar is a good night club for drinks – but it already closes at 1am which is a bit of a disappointment as only then the place starts to pulsate. However, the drinks are prepared fairly (e.g. Vodka Lemon, EUR 12.00; Sambucca Shot, EUR 8.00). The place is rather crowded and it is […]

10. October 2014: Restaurant Les Deux Canailles

You always get the best impression about a chef’s ability by trying the “degustation menu” (EUR 79.00) as it gives you a full impression of the chef’s thoughts. The menu started with an “organic tomato soup, crab mousse with avocado, and white onion cramelized with chorizo”. The course did not only sound funny it also […]
