And non vegan too! There are limited vegan options in Nice. Alounak is great as it's a great affordable meal for both vegan and non vegan diners. My daughter (the vegan) had the set meal - one appetizer from a choice of 3 (hummus), vegan couscous and a choice of 5 vegan desserts (oriental pastries). I had lamb couscous and... More

Usually I don't eat vegetarian but this restaurant offers an excellent vegetarian menu, so I eat some very tasteful food. Very welcoming service and warm atmosphere.

Alounak all the way! We both ate a full course and left feeling satisfied in every way. It's not every day, that you get to eat food that is inexpensive, healthy, and most importantly, tastes great. Also, the owner was a great guy, and the service was excellent! Two full courses and a bottle of white wine for under 60... More

The flavors were a good change from the typically bland food found in Nice. All the dishes were great, and the owner is super nice.

This is a beautiful restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere. If you are vegetarian or vegan this is a perfect option for you (and your carnivore friends, too). The owner is vegan so he knows what to offer you and the menu is clearly marked with the veg dishes. I had a fabulous smoky eggplant and onion appetizer with pita and... More

I visited with a group of about 10 other friends, mostly vegetarian. This place seemed to be one of very few vegetarian options that wasn't pizza or pasta on a Sunday evening. The food was amazing, so much flavour! Also the prices were very reasonable. The owner was very friendly and had a good sense of humour. Would defiantly revisit... More

We went to Alounak because of the good reviews and were not at all disappointed. The restaurant manager was a lovely, gentle man and gracious host. The decor was beautiful and atmospheric, with a lot of care having gone into it. Both my wife and I had lamb dishes, hers with cous cous and mine with rice. Very much a... More

We visited here on Sun night just before 8pm and we did think of going somewhere else as we were the first diners but we were so pleased that we did go in-the owner who is waiter and chef took the time to make us feel welcome. At no time did we feel deserted nor that we were hovered over.... More

We almost arrived before the restaurant closed but they still welcomed us and we got good vegan food, a good conversation with the owner. So what do we need more than to have a good night? Food, drink and conversation. We got all that there. Thanks

A thoroughly enjoyable evening, talking to the owner and tasting good authentic food. Some of the recipes had been passed down from his great grandmother. A real experience.
