Last years posts for Nice Cote D'Azure were a big help in selecting dining spots for our September trip to Cap Ferrat, Eze, Beaulieu and Nice-here are a few more to add to the list. Our meals varied from the tiny cafe with the huge Rottweiler in Nice ,a nightclub in Monaco, to the "serious" restaurant in Eze. We had thought we were booked in La Provencal but arrived to a closed restaurant, so continued on the to Voile D'Or in Cap Ferrat. Despite not having a reservation, they were welcoming and presented a very nice dinner, which included a 50 euro truffle salad and an excellent bottle of wine for the same price;the bill for 3 people with cocktails and wine was 450 euros!-not exactly the casual meal we had in mind, but very pleasant and we were after all on the Riviera. We also had dinner in the Zebra club in Monte Carlo, located in the Sports forum-waitstaff in zebra outfits, zebra drinks, etc., with an outdoor deck and great views. We then continued on to Eze with the goal of having another dinner at the Chateau de Chevre D'Or, staying in the Chateua Eza for that purpose. The meal begins on the terrace overloooking the coastline where you drink champagne and have tiny amouse bouches, a spectacular setting. While we enjoyed haute cuisine with a provencale flavor and meticulous service on our last visit, this meal was a not always successful mixture of Provence and Ferran Adria.Lots of foams, frozen things, tapenade in several dishes, and a very tasty pork roast brought to the table in its own cocotte and carved tableside with a salt ceremony and an odd attack with perfum atomizers to spray moka essence on our tater tot looking pastas which we instructed not to cut..Some presentations were outstanding and delicious but others were merely odd. Then the service teetered downhill after the entrees, coming to a complete halt until we repeatedly asked for the check. A completely different meal at a much lower price point awaited us at Les Viviers in Nice, 22 Rue Alphonese Carr. The wait staff and owner could not have been nicer, the ambiance more friendly and food more delicious-experimental takes on Nicois cuisine. (turbot served over marrow bone, rouget fillets, and with a fig tart and cumin ice cream for dessert.)We ate in the Bistro side in a Non smoking section-it is the same chef as the more serious side, with essentially the same food in a more causal atmosphere at about 125 euros for two including drinks and wine. The Riviera is a magical place , particulary in September after the crowds have left, with plenty of dining opportunites on all levels of the culinary spectrum.
