We had the chance to meet some friends in Nice, France and we were searching for a restaurant in Nice’s old town. After a little research, we decided on Le Bar des Oiseaux. Excellent choice!
The restaurant met my expectations in every way. A great location, a creative chef, a small menu made from fresh ingredients of the day, great desserts, a good selection of French wines and impeccable service. Everyone at the restaurant was very friendly and did everything possible to make our dining experience enjoyable.
We shared a starter of tuna and swordfish ceviche. It was delicious. I selected the fish of the day for my main course. It was Monkfish with carrots, potatoes and charcuterie with an artichoke sauce. The fish was very fresh and very tasty. We selected a bottle of rosé from a local vintner to accompany our meal. We decided to have dessert and our waiter indicated that the chocolate mousse was one of his favourites so we decided to ordert it. Wow. It was very light and creamy; like eating a chocolate cloud!
We went back a second time together with our friends. I tried a pasta dish made with several types of seafood. This was definitely the dish of the night! The pasta was excellent and the seafood was very fresh and very delicious. We shared a dessert made of lemon cream on ginger crust. It was heavenly.
The restaurant has an open kitchen and the head chef checks every dish personally before it is served. I highly recommend this restaurant if you’re visiting Nice. I believe you will have a very enjoyable and memorable dining experience.
