I purposely reserved a later table for dinner so that the mister and I would have a chance to wander around the village a bit in the 'golden hour'.
The school holidays were over and the lack of tourists was notable (except us, of course).
As the sun began to set a beautiful golden light settled in the streets.
Twilight soon followed - time to eat!
We ate at La Closerie that night - a restaurant that has received good reviews. I'm happy to report we also enjoyed our meal there. Delicious food (we had the Menu Gourmand), attentive service and a great wine recommendation from the staff. Book a week out though - it's very popular (this was the second time I'd tried to get in.)
The entree was a killer: crab meat salad with avocado and dressing, a papadum-ish back shell and two crab claws (pre-cracked and read to eat). The two chives for antennae completed the picture.
Thank you, Ansouis, for another lovely visit!
I'll be back with some photos from our Nice trip early next week.
Have a great weekend, everyone. We'll be up at 6.30am on Saturday to watch the Australian Football Grand Final - good luck Swannies!
