Grand Café de Turin

Grand Café de Turin Review

Whether you squeeze onto a banquette in the dark, low-ceiling bar or win a coveted table under the arcaded porticoes on Place Garibaldi, this is the place to go for shellfish in Nice: sea snails, clams, plump fines de claires and salty bleues oysters, plus urchins by the dozen. It's packed noon and night (and has been since it opened in 1908), so don't be too put off by the sometimes brusque reception of the waiters. You may want to take a sweater as there's always a breeze.
