The new owners of bar Antoine in Rue de la Prefecture have certainly changed the place; it’s cleaner, more sophisticated and with a less varied menu, but: it is still a very French atmosphere with lovely food and good service.
Try the Parma ham freshly sliced to order in front of you. The duck is good too and the truffle risotto to die for. It’s still one of the busiest restaurants in Old Nice, a place where every other doorway leads to a restaurant, so book a table and enjoy.
Rue de la Prefecture
This very friendly gay/lesbian bar has a wide selection of wines and other drinks. Generous portions of freshly-prepared snacks are also available.
Also worth a visit for the super murals on the wall, and it offers a showcase for local artists working in various media.
Clientele is mainly, but not exclusively, lesbian and gay.

One of the smallest "Appellation d'Origine Controllée" regions in France is that of the Bellet wine, just north of Nice. It produces very unusual whites and very mediteranean reds. To be enjoyed with a slice of pissaladière (local onion tart) or stuffed vegetables à la niçoise. Le Safari restaurant is not a bad address and won't cost the earth.
