The beginning of February is a tense time for restaurants, especially those with Michelin stars or those hoping to gain one of those much sought after stars.

Yesterday, Michelin published their list of 2017 Michelin Guide restaurants, which includes those restaurants not only with one, two or three stars, but also those restaurants that Michelin has recommended or singled out as 'Bib Gourmand'.

Happily, for the gourmets, foodies and tourists of the city of Nice, the area has four Michelin star restaurants, including the 2-star restaurant, the sumptuous Le Chantecler which is situated within the luxury hotel Le Negresco on the Promenade des Anglais, La Flaveur in central Nice and L'Aromate, not far from La Flaveur on Avenue Marechal Foch.

New kid on the butcher's block this year, comes in the form of Le Saint-Martin restaurant at the Saint-Martin Spa & Chateau in Vence, who have earned their first Michelin star under the guidance of Chef Jean-Luc Lefrançois.

Travelling a little further from the city you will also find some fantastic 1 and 2 Michelin star restaurants, such as the luxury La Chevre d'Or in Eze and the exquisite and regal Le Restaurant des Rois in Beaulieu-sur-Mer.
