L'Union is an institution in Liberation. There are not many comparable establishments like this in the neighbourhood. The quality-price is excellent with large servings. Good presentation of some hearty dishes, all cooked very well. I can recommend the Daube with Ravioli in its tasty dark sauce. I asked for Tagliatelli instead and that was no problem. The Carpaccio and Beef... More

Sadly this restaurant was destroyed by fire last year, but its web site says it is now being rebuilt and the hope is that it will be open in the summer of 2016. This restaurant is a little off the usual tourist route as it is in Nice Nord, but is well worth the walk. It has a lovely terrace... More

Excellent quality 'provencale' cuisine and reasonable price. When you arrive, you will think you have got the wrong address, as its open air restaurant is hidden away at the back. Frequented by locals; always a good sign.

This is a great restaurant for very generous pasta dishes. This place is very busy and is frequented mostly by locals as it's well off the tourist track. If you are staying in the area it is well worth a visit.

A garden restaurant slightly slightly hidden behind a bar near the tram stop - it came recommended by the owner of the B&B we were staying at nearby; good food well cooked and good service

This place is very meat-and-potatoes (or pasta). It's filling and delicious, but leaves you craving something green. When I got gnocci in roquefort sauce, I got exactly that with one half of a cherry tomato. Not another vegetable in sight. And the servings are so huge you don't want to order an additional salad. It was a little much for... More

A local special is farcis. It's easy to over order, because the quantities are big. We had to leave a lot of food on the table and we had no room for dessert. Rose is popular around here, so get it. The service was down to earth. They didn't open until 19:30 or 7:30 pm., so we had to wait... More

L´Union is a neghbourhood restaurat in Nice, where you see few turists and with rather typical food of excellent quality for a very reasonable price. Maybe I should point out, that the food in Nice is not 100% "provencale" food, rather between "provencale" and ligurian. L´Union is nearer to "provencale" then most typical restaurants in Nice. The food is excellent;... More

This little gem serves delicious home-made raviolis and pastas, and many other traditional dishes. The assorted appetizer platter is awesome, with a wide choice of patés, onion tart, tampanade, charcuterie, etc. The back-yard seating is fantastic.
