Submit a provisioning request to Gourmet Deliveries

A city full of life, Nice lies along the captivating French Riviera. An exotic retreat renowned for its enchanting beauty and culinary delights. The bright blue waters that brush up against the city’s pebbled shores make Nice an idyllic destination for travelling superyachts. A gastronomic adventure awaits those who cruise to this vibrant location and as you wander through its picturesque streets, the aroma of freshly baked bread fills the air.

Before diving into Nice’s culinary treasures, one must first discover the city’s irresistible charm. Nice offers a vast wealth of local sites that are well worth a visit. The vibrant Nice markets of Cours Saleya, have stalls packed to the brim with fresh produce and artisanal crafts. Nice is also famous for opening the first wholesale cut flower market in the world, Marché Aux Fleurs. In 1861, the market was opened and florists would bring their flowers to sell to the wholesalers. The market was then opened for the public to come and choose from the range of colourful bouquets freshly cut that morning.

Discover more about Nice’s history at the Musée Matisse or explore the delightful 19th-century park, Jardin Albert 1er. Take a leisurely stroll along Promenade des Anglais and gaze out at the uninterrupted view of the Mediterranean, or wander through the cobbled streets of the Old Town, where markets and cafes promise delicious treats at every turn. From art and architecture to music and cuisine, Nice offers something for everyone. It provides exciting treats and adventures for superyacht guests to enjoy both on and off the vessel.

If you are looking for a place to enjoy a drink after a long day in Nice, then Old Town is the place to go, both in the day and nighttime, and venues where you can dance the night away. Le Bateleur is a must-visit for those who love craft beer; it’s a cosy bar with a vast selection on tap, the ideal place to sit back and enjoy a cool beer after a long day. Wayne’s Bar is a vibrant bar that attracts a young crowd with upbeat music, offering a range of cocktails and their trained mixologists will cater to everyone. For those who want to get away from main tourist venues, Yolo is hidden away in the quaint streets of Old Town; a wine bar offering a range of French wines and champagne alongside cheese and salmon platters.

When visiting Nice the best places to stay are along the Promenade des Anglais. The Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée is a 5-star art-deco style hotel offering fabulous views of the Baie des Anges, situated only a five-minute walk from Nice station. A fifteen-minute walk from Old Town, Hotel Le Negresco also lies on the Promenade des Anglais. It is also 5-stars and has its own Michelin-star restaurant, Le Chantecler, where you can enjoy gourmet meals. Le Meridien Nice, a 4-star hotel, faces the Mediterranean Sea and also has views of Jardin Albert 1er, offering a rooftop terrace and outdoor pool, this hotel is a few steps from the Old Town.

As well as Le Chantecler, Nice has seven other Michelin-star restaurants. Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen, a South African chef, opened his restaurant Jan just outside Old Town. He previously worked as a chef on private yachts before bringing South African cuisine to Nice. L’Aromate is located near Place Masséna, Nice’s historic square. Mickaël Gracieux uses local high-quality produce from Nice and the Mediterranean. The restaurant Flaveur doesn’t only have one Michelin-star but two. The Torteaux brothers bring flavours from near and far to dishes mixing local fish with Indian spices, they like to take risks and create unexpected recipes that always pay off.
