La Merenda

About Us

La Merenda in Nice, France, is a culinary treasure that embodies the essence of Niçoise cuisine with a deep sense of authenticity and tradition. Tucked away in the charming streets of Old Nice, this small, no-frills bistro captures the heart and soul of local dining, offering an experience that feels both intimate and genuine. With its modest facade and simple interior, La Merenda invites diners to step into a world where the focus is squarely on the food and the rich culinary heritage of the region. The restaurant is the brainchild of a former Michelin-starred chef who decided to return to the basics of cooking, emphasizing quality ingredients and traditional recipes over the trappings of fine dining. The result is a menu that is both unpretentious and exceptional, featuring classic dishes prepared with skill and care. The absence of a telephone and the cash-only policy add to the bistro's old-world charm, encouraging diners to engage in the communal and convivial spirit that defines French bistro culture. La Merenda's menu is a testament to the flavors of Nice and the surrounding Provence and Liguria regions. Diners can expect to indulge in specialties such as socca (a chickpea flour pancake), farcis niçois (stuffed vegetables), and ratatouille, alongside seasonal offerings that showcase the freshest local produce. The portions are generous, the flavors are bold, and each dish is a reflection of the region's culinary landscape.
