Genuine Cuisine Nissarde dishes served indoors or al fresco in central Nice

  • Cuisine Nissarde-awarded restaurant

  • Authentically prepared Niçoise ingredients

  • Outdoor dining on a palm-lined garden terrace

  • Located close to Palais des Congrès Acropolis

Stroll north of the port through Nice's picturesque Old Town in search of mouthwatering, authentic Niçoise cuisine. LE POIS CHICHE is proud to bear the Cuisine Nissarde label, an award that celebrates restaurants committed to serving exquisite regional dishes prepared using time-honoured methods and quality, locally sourced ingredients.

In addition to a convivial indoor dining space, our restaurant channels the languid glamour of the French Riviera with a spectacular garden terrace. A canopied pergola, sun-dappled palm trees... Welcome to our urban oasis in the heart of the city. Revel in the feel of the sun on your skin, and the taste of it in our artisan-produced Mediterranean ingredients. From sun-ripened olives to sun-dried tomatoes, the rich, bold flavours of southern France define every dish at LE POIS CHICHE, making the food taste as good as it is good for you.

Spend a leisurely hour drawing out your buffet breakfast with good conversation and just one more cup of coffee. For lunch, let us tempt you with the delicate taste of our courgette flower fritters or our chickpea salad. Want to experience the bounty of the sea? Treat yourself to octopus à la niçoise, followed by stuffed peaches or a slice of lemon tart. In the evening, LE POIS CHICHE becomes the ideal spot for a cosy dinner. Pair yours with a bottle of fine French red for the perfect start to your evening.

    (Translated by Google) Unfriendly service! You will only be served if you call the waiter. Food doesn't taste good! Can't roast the meat medium, it always comes in English! (Original) Unfreundliche Bedienung! Man wird nur bedient, wenn man die Kellner ruft. Essen schmeckt nicht! Können das Fleisch nicht Medium braten, es kommt immer englisch!
