Nice, Provence/Côte d’Azur .. dinner at La Bergerie d’Eze

Finally we’ve come to the end of Day 4 with a dinner at the charming family run restaurant, La Bergerie, which sits right on top of hill overlooking the village of Èze and the calm blue Mediterranean.   I’m not sure whether this is a little morbid, but I was curious – from the bus we could see the part of the Corniches where Princess Grace of Monaco very sadly had her fatal accident

View from the carpark of the restaurant, of the fortified medieval village of Èze, built in the 6th century to withstand the Saracen pirates who plagued the coast …

Terrasse panoramique is spectacular !!!!  We were served aperitifs with local olive tapanade on plain and toasted baguettes .. oooh it was delishh !!  all while we soaked up the stunning view ..

Isn’t it just magical  ? !!!

I loved the simplicity of the table decor on the terrace !!

Note the tablecloth – similar to those featured in my blog – Lunch at the Peach Cafe, here at home! – material came in different patterns (you see, I should have bought one!)

From where I sat having dinner I had a view of the terrace, an olive tree and the sea way below.    Olive trees are in abundance in this area

We had such a lovely evening .. the dinner was superb and the service was excellent !!  For my starter, I had a tomato and feta salad ..

.. hubby had a delicious leek and potato pie ..

… main course .. I had the most succulent roast duck served with mash and veg .. hubby had an equally delicious beef bourguignon (which I didn’t photograph :()

Puds (desserts) were amazing .. I had a ‘floating island’  mm mm yumm!!

.. hubby had a delectable apple tatin tart with homemade vanilla ice cream

One of our new friends at our table had a fruit salad with homemade vanilla ice cream ..

Zoomed in to the ocean liner cruising the Med …

Spectacular end to Day 4!!  .. as we meandered our way back to our hotel in Nice.

Day 5.. a drive through Cannes (non-stop unfortunately), stopping off at Arles steeped in Roman influences and night-stopping at another UNESCO sight, the medieval town of Carcassonne

  1. I think its awesome when tour itineraries include unique restaurants like these and not just main stream places. Beautiful views and stunning looking food.

  2. Yes I agree .. wait ’til you see the goat farm near Tours – another unique place way off the beaten track

    What a beautiful place – reminds me of romance, and love, and all those wonderful things 🙂 Stunning restaurant, what a good idea with the flower pot, and of course, the lavender!
