The best food in France (and possibly the world!)

Posted by Quaerere Verum - Created: 15 years ago

It's only about 2 months since I returned from an extended sojourn on the wonderful - though admittedly horrible in November and December - Cote d'Azur to (the aptly-named) Blighty.Above all the many things that I'm missing is the opportunity to dine at some of the finest restaurants in France (and indeed the world).These pangs of culinary desire have been triggered by two items in The Times: Alain Ducasse has in 2003 regained the very well-deserved 3 Michelin Stars for the sumptuous food and surroundings at the Louis XV in Monaco, and; The Times is running a "Restaurant Critic" competition ([url]http://www.timesonline.co.uk/section/0,,5204,00.html[/url]).Oh how I would love to enter the latter by (for example) dining again at the former! But alas, I doubt I will be able to make it before the competition ends.So, faithful AngloInfo members, I implore you to rise to this challenge on my behalf, so that I can once again enjoy the culinary delights of CdA - albeit vicariously :-(For those looking for inspiration, here are a few places to start...Nice: Chantecler (at the Negresco), La Petite Maison, L'Aphrodite, Cafe du Turin.Villefranche: Carpaccio.St Jean Cap Ferrat: Le Sloop, Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat.Eze: Chateau D'Eza, Le TroubadourHappy eating, and please post your mouth-watering reviews here also!

Les epicuriens in Nice is very good and prices are reasonnable.

Has anyone tried L'Abbaye in La Colle sur Loup.The food is of a very high standard.

In San Remo (Italy) the Mare Blu never disappoints.Great seafood dishes.

Daniells restaurant at the port at Marina Baie des Anges is excellent. Closedtuesday out of season. Great food, good value, shortish menu and wine list, the owner (Daniel) always there - either cooking or serving.

Can anyone comare/contract Chantecler and La Lerrasse?I've got friends coming over, and we're considering one or the other. I've seen reviews of Chantecler which rate it very high. All I've sen on La Terrasse is their own website, which sounds great, but the prices are huge.. 110Euros for the cheapest wine.. surely that can't be right?!

It would have to be utterly discreet ! ( Groupies , would be saboteurs and the Press , otherwise !! )

Another one in Nice, just behind the Church on the Port - great ambiance in the evenings - like an 80'w London Wine Bar with music , but great food as well , apparently already popular with the Brits of the block Café Boghese ,9, Rue Fodéré ; do a cheap good lunch as well !

The Seventies on the Port de Nice , 24, Quai Lunel , is new and excellent ( decor is more 60's than 70's !!) Brunch on weekends , superb fresh fish , Niçois cuisine with a difference and great ambiance in the evenings , with music ( platines) and a bar. Park in the Port.
