French in Vieux Nice

Warm service and irreproachable quality are the hallmarks of this traditional neighbourhood restaurant, in the same family since 1927. Locals and tourists pack into the three stone-walled rooms for Niçois delights such as merda di can (little green gnocchi – nicknamed 'dog poop' for the shape, not the flavour, mind you!), red mullet with parsleyed green beans and olive tapenade, and tiramisu.
