Hidden along the jaw-dropping shoreline of the French Riviera rests an ancient village with some of the most beautiful Mediterranean Sea views and a diverse, extravagant culinary scene. Eze, France, is perfectly located in-between the ever-popular seaside cities of Monte Carlo and Nice, so you’ll always be a short drive from world-class museums, casinos, palaces, and so many more genuinely awe-inspiring spectacles. Every five-star Eze restaurant has a unique menu, atmosphere, and visual appeal. Whether you’re hoping to savor authentic, wood-fired pizza, succulent bavette, or hazelnut-crusted veal, you’ll never forget your culinary voyage through the South of France.

An Eze Restaurant Guide

To ensure that your well-deserved escape to the French Riviera is nothing short of flawless, we’ve compiled our three favorite local restaurants. Yes, each award-worthy Eze restaurant serves delicious gourmet cuisine, but these three selections see less foot traffic while also offering slightly lower prices than many of the area’s hotel dining rooms.

Château Eza

If you’re aiming to indulge in fine French cuisine while reveling in the wonderment of the Cote d’Azur, then look no further than Château Eza’s Gourmet Restaurant. Yes, the 180-degree views of the Mediterranean’s azure blue waters are spellbinding, but the fresh fish entrees are going to leave a lasting impression on your French getaway. Savor a filet of citrus John Dory or the steaming lobster bouillabaisse while sharing a bottle of award-winning vino from a local vineyard at this lavish Eze restaurant.

La Taverne d’antan

Plated risotto and shirmp.

In the heart of Eze’s historic village rests a quaint tavern that serves some of the tastiest risotto and wood-fired pizza in the region. La Taverne is often described by lucky patrons as a “hole in the wall” because it’s dimly-lit, small, and unquestionably medieval, but that’s all part of the distinctive allure of this “catacomb.” You’d be wise to pair the risotto aux crevettes with a glass of French Bordeaux. Before or after dinner at this rustic Eze restaurant, feel inspired to explore the gorgeous village!

Mets Vins Chics

Mets Vins Chics specializes in the collection of fine local wine from some of the world’s premier vineyards. But, their inexpensive yet utterly delicious dishes of citrus fruit-marinated hake, veal tenderloin, and deer stew simply cannot be ignored. Everything from the plate presentation to their delicate desserts set the mood for an arresting evening of fine wine, gourmet cuisine, and, of course, great company.
