Not really, especially as Nice has such a wide variety of places to eat. It is, of course, a major resort city, but we looked at menus in quite a few places that had moderate prices.

I've always found the cost of eating to be pretty comparable to Liverpool for average to more expensive restaurants. It's the cost of drinking in Nice that I find expensive, particularly beer. In restaurants, the cheapest alcohol to order is the house wine, by the carafe. It CAN be fairly drinkable! For best value , you really need to stock up with alcohol from the supermarkets, like Monoprix, Carrefour, Ed etc and drink in your hotel room or apartment. Coffee too is dear, the cheapest coffee is the tiny espresso, you have to eek it out. They cost about 1- 1,50 euros. Once you start ordering cappuchinos, the price often racks up, 5-6 euros a cup.

hope this helps, best wishes from Aigburth.

The bars like Wayne's, Ma Nolans, Bar Thor all have happy hours until about 9pm when Lager is 3.50 euros pint it goes up to 5-6 euros pint after 9pm, but there aren't any entry costs to these places.

Food is very similarly priced to England, but as always you get what you pay for.

In Nice like in most of France you can eat well, yet cheaply - fixed priced menus of 11€ to 21€ for a 3 course meal are common. Even cheaper are meals of socca, beignets and other Niçois specialities eaten at Rene Socca or Lou Phil Leva. With regard to drinks, the house wine is the best value at around 5€ for a half litre. At bars, order beers and coffees standing at the bar rather than sitting at a table for cheaper prices. A small beer costs 3.50€ and a café crème about 3€. An espresso is cheaper.
