Food and drink
Fans of Niçois food will find all they need here. Those not already fans will almost certainly become so after a course or two. There’s nothing particularly posh or convoluted. You eat what locals eat and have eaten for some time. It’s just better prepared than usual, that’s all.
So look out for stuffed courgette fritters, stuffed vegetables roasted in the oven, fresh tuna salad, red mullet, sea-bass, sauté of lamb with thyme and a splendid home-made lemon tart. A Provençal rosé wine is probably imperative for the full Niçois experience.
This is a happy place, run by young people who seem genuinely pleased to see you. That the restaurant room is pretty unremarkable – all subdued blues, yellows and whites, with standard tables and chairs – doesn’t matter a gnat’s whisker.
On the contrary, it shows that the Voyageur has its priorities right. Otherwise, and slightly off the beaten track, it wouldn’t attract such a lively collection of local Niçois and distant tourists.
Youthful, enthusiastic and as welcoming as any in town.
On an unsung commercial street, near-ish the station.
Value-for-money is the Voyageur’s strongest suit. Three-course menus start at 16.25 euros and, for that, believe me, you eat well.
