was there last year,nice le meridian,rooms are a bit small although the view can't be beat,we were upgraded to  a suite with a nice sized porch,lounge chairs! nice amount of restaurants,minyanim within 20 minutes walking distance. you can take a 5 minute tram to the train station and make a day trip to Monaco or Cannes,both around 20 minute train rides away,both beautiful places,and in the summertime they have a bit more kosher food options as well there! really a great vacation spot! although i must warn you,it is a very populated tourist destination in the summer,so availability is a bit limited. good luck and any questions let me know!!!!

After DME if we do it at all. Although there is a slight possibility we will be go in Spring as well to France and then try to get there then instead of during the summer trip.

Title: Re: Nice, France
Post by: ORD747 on July 15, 2011, 05:57:52 PM
I just got back from Nice on July 6! I would be glad to help with questions. Let's start:

1. Kosher restaurants: Nice has 10 restaurants, a pareve bakery that sells meat dishes, a kosher grocery, and a kosher butcher. We went to 3 restaurants. All were a bit pricey, you should know that up front. Also they don't open for dinner till about 7pm
Le Leviathan: Dairy restaurant. Fish, pasta and pizza. We went there for 3 dinners. Pizza is excellent!! Much better than Chicago and even NYV and LA! My mom had the red mullet and salad Nicoise and reported that both were great. My sister and brother both raved about the pasta! I definitely recommend it.
Le Keter: Dairy, ran by Chabad. Pizza, pasta, sandwiches. We went once and it was definitely a mistake. While the food was really good, service absolutely sucked!! we didn't go back
Chez Arthur: Meat. We went twice!! Food was really good and staff were especially friendly. The chicken Caesar Saldana was out of this world!!
We went to grocery twice. Decent selection, prices a but high, which as noted above is typical.
We got baked goods twice. The raspberry tarts are INCREDIBLY AMAZING!! Definitely worth getting. It's 3 or 4 blocks down from Le Leviathan on the sane street.
For breakfast: we got Tropicana OJ from Monoprix, the local supermarket, tomatoes from farmers market, cheese from kosher grocery and French bread at random bakeries. It's pas akum, but the Chief Rabbi of France holds that plain French bread is kosher from any bakery.

3. Where to stay: we planned to stay at the Le Meridien using SpG points. However, we need to rooms for 9 nights, or in other words 18 nights. We only had points to pay for 8 nights. We rented a beach front house from Nice Pebbles realty. While it was a lot more than paying the cash rate for 10 nights at Le Meridien, it was smarter. We got 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, kitchen, living room, dining room, and 2 porches overlooking the beach. I checked out the Le Meridien to see what we missed. It was nothing special.

4. Shabbat: Nice has 2 shuls and a Chabad. We didn't go to Chabad but apparently tefillah takes forever there. There was an "Ashkenazi" shul where we went for Shachrit and mincha. We Dave Ed at our rental house Friday night. I put the word Ashkenazi in quotes because the shul had no nusach. They made it up as they went along. They admitted it to us. For example: on Shabbat, there was no birkat kohanim at Shachrit or mussaf. On Sunday morning they did do birkat kohanim.

5. Monaco: you could get there by bus from Nice. We went for about 6 hours and had a great time. We took our rental car there. WARNING: parking is extremely scarce there. If you are coming by car arrive before 10:15am. We went to the Monaco aquarium which was pretty awesome. We wanted to go to the palace as tours are available, but since we were there two days before the princes wedding there were no tours. The palace gardens were open though. It was nothing special but they were beautiful and had breathtaking views of the Meditteranean. We wanted to go to the Casino but we couldn't find parking nearby so we settled for just driving past it. For lunch, we had French bread and deli meat from the kosher butcher.

I will gladly answer questions to best of my ability. Send me a PM or an email.
Title: Re: Nice, France
Post by: ORD747 on July 15, 2011, 06:09:34 PM
Forgot to mention a few things.
Wifi - our rental only had wired Internet and I didnt bring my laptop, only my iPod. There is cheap wifi available at an Internet cafe called Waynes. It's 1 euro per hour, about $1.45. There is also free wifi in the 2 McDonalds locations in Nice. One is actually next door to the Le Meridien. I went there a few times. If you just buy a soda no one will say a word though I recommend wearing a baseball cap or taking off your kippa. Sodas though were a bit expensive. The large soda was all of 17 ounces and costs 2.6 euro at the beachfront McD's (next to Le Meridien) and 2.5 at the other one, about half a mile in land.
Wearing a kippa - I wore my kippa about half the time I was there. No one even gave me a second glance. Because of the sun, I definitely recommend a baseball cap.

Beach- the Nice beach is a rock beach not a sand beach. Crocs or water shoe is a must. Flip flops won't cut it. The tide is strong and the water is a bit cold, and has an extremely high concentration of salt. It gets in your mouth easily and is disgusting. And if it gets in your eyes it burns. Goggles are definitely recommended. Enter and exit the water quickly because if you stand a few seconds too long the tide will throw you in to te rocks and it could take a few minutes to get up. It's not pleasant having rocks thrown at you by the tide. Also, the Nice beach allows women to go topless so for some this might be an issue. When we were there though I didn't see many.

I do not have time for a complete trip report but if anyone has any questions feel free to ask!! We were in Zurich, Lucerne, Nice (took tour of all the famous places in the French Riviera including Monte Carlo, Monaco, Cannes, Eze and Antibes) and Paris.

Any tips? How was the hotel? What did you do there? Where did you eat?

Title: Re: Nice, France
Post by: BrooklynCPA on August 02, 2011, 10:19:40 AM
I was there from Friday until Monday afternoon so we only ate at one restaurant, Chez Arthur, on Sunday night.  Food was decent and very reasonably priced. On shabbos, we were set up at a nice family by Chabbad on Friday night. They had a Kiddush (not hot) Shabbos morning and we made our own meal after that.

The Le Meridien was not very impressive although decent for Nice standards as they don't seem to have very many high end hotels there. (Then again were coming form Park Hyatt in Zurich heading to Park Hyatt Paris so I could be biased :) ) The location was fantastic and we got a corner room with 2 sides of floor to ceiling windows over the ocean.

If you will be there for a while I would suggest you explore the different towns of the French Riviera on your own either by Car, train or boat. If you are there for a short stay then take the full day Tour that took us to most places. We did the following tour:

I was there for the long weekend in Summer 2011 . It was beautiful but you don't need more than a few days there. I did this full day tour and would recommend it:

http://www.nexus-communication.com/startour//us/tours/tour1.php

We only only had one full day to tour so this was the best option. If we had a few days during the week I would have probably rented a car and explored all these places our own.

There are a few decent kosher restaurants there too.

It would make sense to get there earlier in the morning so you have a full day. If I remember correctly, Lucerne was about 1 1/2 hours from the airport but it might be quicker. There is lots of information in the Zurich Thread. Also read Dans trip note as he also did a 24 stopover in Zurich.

Has anyone here ever driven from Barcelona to Nice along the French coast? Looking into doing the drive this summer, however I cannot find a car rental without a drop off fee of close to 800 dollars. Best I found was 300 hundred from Perpignan which is about 2 hours from Barcelona to Nice, but the hassle of getting there from BCN makes the whole thing not worth it.

Title: Re: Nice, France Master Thread
Post by: PlatinumGuy on August 05, 2014, 09:38:02 PM
Le Tovel in Cannes is occasionally open Friday night. You can always order takaway on Thursday. The Chabad mashgiach comes in/out and the owner goes to shul on shabbos. There are 2 bakeries where chabad checked the baguettes and lights the fire so it's pas yisroel.

There's a pretty good (but filthy) bakery in Juan Lis Pines.

Post by: tmendy226 on August 12, 2014, 02:45:35 AM
As I'm flying to nice next week I was looking for details about Monaco but couldn't find anything.

So can anyone tell me about the place. 

I'll start with the following questions:

1: is it worth it to go there?
2: what are the must see?
3: is there anything kosher there?

Thanks.

I will be going to Monaco in a few hours and will hopefully be able to better answer these questions then. As far as food I don't believe there is anything kosher in Monaco but there are kosher restaurants in Nice which is about a half hour train ride away.

1. Yes
2. Palace, casino, super yachts in the harbour.
3. No kosher restaurants. There is however an option to have kosher dinner at the Fairmont (provided by an outside caterer). http://m.fairmont.com/monte-carlo/dining/kosher-food/

Ok just got back from a day trip to monaco. Definitely worth a visit especially since it's a pretty quick train ride from Nice. I found both the Casino and the Palace less than exciting (I did not however go into the palace just saw it from the outside) but the views are absolutely magnificent. Take a long walk around the coastline and bring a good camera. It's breathtaking.

Where can they get food at this hour? Delivered? In airport?

Looks like a beautiful city but not with such short notice...

You can try Chabad's dairy place.

Lechem shamayim - 22 rue Rossini 06000 Nice +33 (0) 4 93 82 55 76

You can probably have Uber pick it up.

Cannes to Nice
or Cannes to Monte Carlo etc.

I believe parking in Monaco is hard to find. Not sure about Cannes. I'd imagine it depends how often you plan on going. I'd prob stick to just Ubering. Unless you're gonna go hopping over to nearby villages etc.. even then you can use the train.

We were in Nice for Shabbat (in a rental apartment) 2 years ago and really enjoyed it. Felt more 'authentic' than Cannes, as there is a local community. They do Friday night dinner at Chabad restaurant for reasonable charge.
The range and quality of restaurants is better there than elsewhere, can't speak to hechshers as I eat non-Glatt and non-CY (shoot me if you will!)

Thanks for the info. We wonít be staying over Shabbos so thatís not an issue. The friends we are going with are very set on staying in Monte Carlo so I was just wondering about these 2 hotels specifically.

St Tropez for 1 day  (Ferry)
Monte Carlo for 1 day (Train)
and Cannes for another

If you go to Monte Carlo for the day
Parking seems to be a disaster maybe take a train there

There are no kosher restaurants in Monte Carlo. In Nice we went to Meat Bar which is kind of an Israeli style place with burger, schnitzels, salads. I think they had shawarma too, I'm not sure.

Then the other night we went to Le Dauphin Bleu which has pasta, meats, salads, etc. A bit more upscale but not too fancy.

Food in both places was very decent.

In Cannes we were only there during the day and while the dairy place wasn't open yet for the season, we found this fast food style shawarma/falafel place called Rouvi that was very good. They had bagels, hot dogs, burger, schnitzel, shawarma...small little place with just a few tables but food was very good.

Super helpful, tnx. Le Dauphin is more upper scale than Meat Bar? I will probably try them both.

I wonder if the dairy place in Cannes is any good. Should I just go with Rouvi? Assuming they have Pareve options if I am there early in the day and don't want a huge meal?

Also did you make it to St. Paul De Vence? Wondering if it's as crowded as TA makes it sound....

I though Meat Bar was better then Dauphin Bleu - found food tastier, better service.
I went to dairy place in Cannes. It's in the chabad house. Basic pizza menu, same as every dairy place in Nice. Wouldn't go out of my way. Note that it's only open in the summer.
There are a lot more kosher places in Juan Les Pins  - a whole street of them, both meat and milk. Many Parisiens go on holiday there..Food was good there, but very busy in August...

I didnít rent a car, my friend did. He traveled around more, drove up to Eze which he said was breathtaking, and tried to convince me to rent a car. However I took the train from MC to Nice and to Cannes. I didnít get to drive up to Eze and some other places he visited. In each city we only walked. Depending where youíre staying the train station may be far. But he did admit there was lots of traffic so where Cannes to monte Carlo took me an hour by train it took him sometimes double that with traffic. So itís a toss up. Keep in mind there is no Uber in Monte Carlo, but there is in Nice and Cannes. Had there been Uber in MC it would be a no brainer. There are taxis but only cash and very expensive.

So in short I guess it depends on what you plan on doing.

When I was there last summer trains weren't so pleasant. They were all delayed and packed, very long lines to buy a ticket. but it works in the end. Public busy is slow but very cheap and easy (from Nice to Antibes etc).
I rented a car for one day to go some villages such as Grasse. Was definitately worth it. Picked up car at Nice station.

Another tip is to look at the French Riviera Pass - http://en.frenchrivierapass.com/
We got very good value out of it, did loads of attractions we woudn't have otherwise.

we stayed in Hyatt was ok dont think there are any real 5 star in Nice, in Monaco there is no kosher food but you can take a 20 min train ride to Nice. some of the attractions in Monaco are closed in the winter and a full day is more than enough there.
