Under the warm, Mediterranean sun and overlooking the azur Mediterranean Sea, I recently enjoyed lunch at a seaside restaurant in Nice, called Sporting Beach. I sipped a glass of Prosecco, an Italian sparkling wine, while taking in the luscious sea view during a ‘girlfriends lunch’ – an afternoon full of fun, laughter, and of course, the latest girly gossip.
“Le Local” is situated just around the corner from the “Notre Dame du Port” church , with its neoclassical edifice and topped with a statue of the Virgin Mary. I have enjoyed lunch (dinner) there several times. Most recently, I met a friend for a leisurely lunch, which turned into a even more leisurely lunch (read: enough time for an extra after-lunch glass of Prosecco) due to a springtime thunderstorm passing through.
The restaurant’s “cuisine Italienne” is very good, service is friendly and accommodating, the restaurant’s location is on a side street for less Port traffic noise. Oh, and the prices are reasonable too – what more could one want?
