I was very excited when visiting Alounak, as it has such good reviews both on HappyCow and on Tripadvisor. And it met my expectations!
The restaurant is very well located, close to the trainstation and the top of Avenue Jean Médecin, the main shopping street leading straight to the sea.
The interior is really nice, it has an "oriental style", but not too much or over the top. In the backround, there was some very relaxing music, but again, not too cliché.
I was greeted very friendly and the owner spoke very good English and offered me the English menu. I chose the vegan menu for 13€, and had the rice in wine leaves for starters, and the tajine for the main.
The starters were simply from heaven! I can't remember the last time I ate something that delicious. The tadjine was very good as well and it was all very filling.
The owner chatted to me and even brought me tissues when he noticed that I was sneezing. He is a man with very interesting stories to tell and it was an interesting conversation, although I have to say that it was maybe even a bit too much for me and I would have liked to be left alone a little more to just relax and enjoy.
However, I still recommend this restaurant to eveyone traveling to Nice, and as you can see from the other reviews, I am not the only one!
Cons: Owner is maybe even a bit too friendly
