I had just done an exercise class with some friends, when one of them recommended having lunch at a restaurant I had not heard of before: “l’Atelier du Port” – what a great, new find!
Located on the corner of rue Bavastro and rue Bonaparte, just behind Nice’s Port, it is easily accessible and has a very welcoming staff.
Our serveur, who had lived in the U.S. and spoke excellent English, was very friendly and joked with us, making it a lighthearted and fun experience.
The lunch menu was varied, so it was difficult to choose, but I finally decided on the “Ravioli citrons confits de Menton” and of course, some Rosé wine. The service was excellent, and the meal was wonderful, light, and delicious – a perfect selection on a warm, summer day!
I will definitely be going back to this restaurant, next time to try their dinner menu — I’ll keep you posted!
PERSONAL NOTE: I did go back for dinner and it was as excellent as my lunch experience, with friendly and efficient service to match!
Location: 45, rue Bonaparte, Nice
