Le Vieux Bistrot

I love Paris. I think it’s absolutely beautiful, and the food is, of course, amazing. And despite the stereotype, Parisians are extremely nice as well.

Voyageur Nissart

On our last day in Nice, my friend and I wanted a fancier dinner to end our trip. We made a reservation online at Voyageur Nissart for 7:30 PM, and we were glad that we did.  By 8:00 PM, the place was filled, and the waiters certainly had their hands full.  Another great thing is that the waiters spoke perfect English, and there were also English menus.

Voyageur Nissart offered three pre fixe menus, and we both went with the Menu Voyageur (€16.50).  The restaurant changes their pre fixe menus daily based on the availability of ingredients, so it was nice to know that the head chef liked to use seasonal ingredients. My friend started off with the tomato and mozzarella salad.  It was nothing complicated, but the plating was beautiful.
