Alounak prides itself on the hearty meals suitable for most eating genres: vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free friendly and carnivores (though meat dishes are a token few – the flip side of a standard restaurant). So, as the owner says himself, it’s a restaurant for vegans who have non-vegan friends. The owner is a vegan, and is very happy to talk vegan, but also happy in the company of meat-eaters too. It’s just good honest food, from an owner with a similar personality.

Pékin Restaurant

The restaurant has been around a long time, but converted to being fully vegetarian in 2017. Where a dish is vegan, you’ll see a sign on the menu (over 50% of the offerings are).

L’Ane Rouge, Quai des Emmannuels, Nice

Almost a Port institution, this restaurant has been Michelin starred for years, and remains so for 2018. For a special occasion, this is a gourmet treat, high on flavour with superior presentation. The menu changes often, largely governed by what fish has been caught that day.
