My friend and I were walking along the seafront and this place was just too good to miss. Sofas on the beach looking out to sea, just perfect. A glass of prosecco for 7 euros and it was lovely. Can't wait to take my husband in July when we go back to Nice.

Our hotel (the Hyatt) recommended this beach restaurant during our stay in Nice. Everything here was perfect- super comfortable chairs, good drinks/wine/food selection and super friendly staff. We checked out some of the other beach places during our stay, but we liked this place the most by far.

There are many restaurants on the beach along the Promenade in Nice. We have tried many of them. Also in both Cannes and Monaco. But the Sporting Plage is one that we always look forward to going back to. We have known this place over a number of years. It maintains a very high standard. It's not cheap but the... More

While walking on Promenade des Anglais we found this place interesting so we decided to have lunch here. We were more than happy for our decision. It was July and the place was almost full, luckily we got a table. The food and service was very good. The best thing about this place was beautiful ambience right on beach. The... More

Yes Nice is not cheap. So also in here. But we found it worth it. Very friendly people who always reserved good seats for us. Ordering drinks and food good and quick. We always did lunch on the beach and that was great. Good salads, nice pizzas, great smoothies, drinks big and cold. Nice showering spaces, clothing rooms. We had... More

I had thought the seafront locations would be under-par, but all our food was excellent, service friendly and fast and the value was spot on! Our visit was interrupted by a freak gust of wind that knocked all the umbrellas over, one of the massive ones almost killing my step-son, so watch out for that! Pizza's great, octopus risotto fantastic!... More

If you are a multimillionaire, do come here. If you are not an oligarch, accept the fact you will be put in a beach chair towards the back. If you are poor and have children - like me - you're in the cheap seats! By the toilets!

We came across this place while strolling the promenade on out visit in March. What a delight, not at all pretentious. The food was amazing and fresh (steak tartare and carpaccio) , service excellent and the wine? Seriously, only the French know how to do house wine right. Perfection. We are looking forward to our return trip

Nice place to eat in since you have an access to the beach but I would not recommend the Salmon pizza though it's light and a nice snack on the beach but it's not really tasty, try the main courses instead especially their sea food plates
