Comptoir Du Marché



The cosiest spot in Nice

The restaurant is located at the very heart of the Old Town of Nice, in the famous rue du Marché, between the Porte Fausse and the Palais de Justice. Inside, both areas of the restaurant are equally warm and friendly. You will first discover a bistro atmosphere with a wooden counter, panelling and vintage lighting. Next door, opening onto the kitchen, is a completely different spirit, a retro grandmother's kitchen with formica tables, vintage fridge doors and old utensils found in the flea markets of Nice. Finally, on our terrace, you will experience the typical atmosphere of the rue du Marché.

The Chef

Originally from Puglia, in the South of Italy, I acquired great experience in renowned Italian restaurants before coming to France. After two years at the Negresco, I wanted to move towards a cuisine more aligned with my roots, where family and tradition are more than just words. I found all this at the Comptoir Du Marché.

The Boss

Alsatian by birth, Niçoise by adoption! The adventure started in 2011. The Comptoir Du Marché was created in the spirit of a bistro, which makes it a warm and friendly place. Our food is both classic and up to date, always inspired by family recipes which remind me of my Alsatian roots. With my team, I enjoy working with a family spirit while we all share the same taste for tradition and quality.

Head waiter

Born in Lecco in Northern Italy, I started working in the restaurant business. Attracted by Nice, I joined the Comptoir Du Marché 5 years ago. My daily job is to welcome customers cheerfully and share with them our generous cuisine and my passion for wine!

A refined cuisine inspired from the daily market.


Fresh products


Our food is Mediterranean and seasonal, prepared according to the produce we find at the market every morning. It is inspired by our ideas of the day, our childhood memories, and our previous experiences in Italy and France.

So don't be surprised if you have to choose between pâté en croûte, veal and tuna tartar, squidstew, duck breast, basil and prawn risotto or lamb pastilla with mint.
Our cuisine, made from fresh and local products, is both generous and refined.



At the very heart of the Old Town of Nice

The Comptoir Du Marché is ideally located in the heart of the old part of the city, the Vieux-Nice, also called the "Babazouk" in the local dialect. It is a true institution of the Rue du Marché, just a stone's throw from the famous Nice market which is held all year round on Cours Saleya, from Tuesday to Sunday. Nearby, you will find the famous Porte Fausse, decorated by the artist Sarkis, or jewels of baroque architecture such as the Cathedral Sainte-Réparate, Place Rossetti, or the Palais Lascaris.
