The best of Lebanese cuisine on the Côte d’Azur

The best of Lebanese cuisine on the Côte d’Azur

Published on in Tourism

Do you fancy taking your tastebuds beyond the borders whilst in the French Riviera? Well, you've clicked the right link. Everywhere from Cannes to Monaco, the Azur towns and cities are bursting with Lebanese restaurants! The Hôtel des Orangers Cannes brings you five of them.

Houmous, baba ganoush, tabbouleh, falafels, sambousseks, vine leaves and more mezze whisk us away on a journey to the Cedar City that you may not want to come back from. You're in for an flavourful and colourful adventure as you dive into dishes and desserts soaked in orange blossom water or studded with pistachios and almonds. Take a seat and feast on fragrant food

  • Falafel in Antibes : Lebanese street food and mezze galore

Chef Ammoune opened the restaurant in Antibes old town close to Port Vauban. The young and dynamic team serve dishes non-stop all week long. Whether you eat in or take away, soak up the delicious aromas of grilled meat, indulge in Lebanese tabbouleh laden with parsley or tuck into mezze and classic hot sambousseks. Straight through to 10pm! Let's not forget the chich taouk sandwiches and moreish meat! 
1 Aubernon Street, 06600 Antibes

  • L’atelier libanais Cap 3000: a food counter

Feast on modern Mediterranean dishes every day at Cap 3000 shopping centre on Place Centrale. Everything's made in-house using fresh ingredients. Save space for dessert after lunch or dinner. You'll struggle to say no when you see the loukoum, pastries and muhallebi (orange blossom milk flan)! Lebanese lemonade made with fresh mint, orange blossom and lemon is equally mouth-watering!!!

  • Le Socrate in Nice: dinner entertainment in an eastern atmosphere

Le Socrate whisks you away between starter and dessert near Avenue Jean Médecin and Notre-Dame Basilica. Soak up the sun-kissed terrace (unless it's one of the city's rare rainy days) over a delicious lunch. The vibe changes as the sun goes down. Eastern dances, heart-pumping music, mouldings and candle holders take you to an evening straight out of the Arabian Nights. Let's dance!

  • Naro’s by Beefbar Monaco: a feast from the East

Ricardo Giraudi, president of the Giraudi Group, wanted to introduce Monaco's Beefbar guests to Eastern cuisine after meeting Chef Nariné Attarian. The restaurant has been serving hot (wagyu beef and houmous) and cold mezze (creamy labneh) in an Eastern interior Monday to Saturday ever since. The same energy goes into dressing the plates and fixing up refreshing cocktails by the mixologist.

Once you've feasted on all that Lebanon has to offer, treat yourself to some downtime at the Hôtel des Orangers Cannes bar. It's a great way to make new friends and sample our delicious drinks menu on your own, with someone special or in a group. Cheers!
