Options for people who are allergic to seafood

We are planning on visiting Nice and I was wondering if anyone can recommend some restaurants (we'll be staying in the Old Town area) that have a good variety of non-seafood dishes since my fiancee is allergic to it.

Most restaurants have non-seafood items; you won't have a problem. Try La Voglia, an Italian restaurant on one corner of the Cours Saléya, Spaghettissimo (also on the Cours), and L'Ecurie, 4 rue du Marché.

when you say allergy to sea food , do you mean prawns, lobster scampi or shell fish etc? or do you mean any food from the sea ie crustaceans ,, shell fish and fish ?

how serious is the allergy -ie can he eat food prepared in a kichen that also serves sea food ?

Its just directly eating seafood. My fiance can eat in an establishment that serves seafood, just wanted to make sure there is a wide variety.

the only time he is likely to have a limited choice will be in specific sea food restaurants - and some of them have quite a range of non sea food items

Nice has more to offer than just seafood restaurants - just look at the list on Trip Advisor and you can see for yourself.

As others have said there a very few restaurants that have an exclusively fish/seafood menu (Le Grand Turin and Café de Turin at Place Garibaldi to name two).

In the Vielle Ville, I recommend La Tapenade on rue Sainte-Réparate, Acchiardo on rue Droite, L'Escalinada on rue Pairolière and La Table Alziari on rue François-Zanin. They all deliver great value Niçoise cuisine with a good choice of non-seafood dishes on all their menus.

Bon appétit!
