A wonderful unspoilt beach

Not romantic but a reasonably priced experience for a super waterfront location. If I was trying to impress a girlfriend I might do better but between 'just' friends this is a perfect place to empty a jug or two of rosé and forget the reality of life . A plus maybe to view some fabulous tanned... read more

A great location with good reviews, but for the 6 of us the food was sadly lacking. The mixed seafood might as well been batter as the deep fried cooking killed all flavour. I was amazed for a French restaurant they cook like a very cheap fish and chip shop.the sea bass was very dry, the salad dry, in general... More

a wonderful relaxing spot with good food and service where you can stay forever watching the waves, drinking rosé and enjoying everything from breakfast to dinner.

This little oasis of calm is consistently superb. It's such a relaxing combination of informal but great quality restaurant and sunbathing opportunity on the very comfortable Matalas( mattresses) Stunning views and having your waiter bring you a glass of rose while lying on the beach is just eutopia.

Hard to find, the simplest way if on foot is to carry on from the end of the Nicebound platform, a narrow path behind a wire fence. Once you get there it is a lovely oasis of calm. We have seen it transform from a simple rustic beach bar to the sophisticated place you will find today. Know how to... More

After quite a hike from La Chevre D'Or, down the mountain to the restaurant we were delighted to come to this at the end of this interesting route, ending by walking by railroad tracks you suddenly come up to this oasis. We had a very good lunch and great service on the beach. My husband had the prawns with vegetables... More

Had a little trouble finding Restaurant Papaya Beach - though that was likely due to the fact that we had just hiked down the giant cliff from Eze Village and were a bit disoriented ;) Fortunately, they did have some signage along the path to direct us there. Once we arrived, we couldn't have been happier with the view! Right... More

Papaya is one of the unspoilt gems of the Riviera. Cosy atmosphere, friendly owners and staff, perfect setting "pieds dans l´eau". Perfect place for organizing big tables or family get togethers. The waiters will really do their outmost for making your evening a very good one. I would higly recommend the beach for any purpose.

We found this spot after taking a short inexpensive train ride from Villefrance Sur mer whilst on a day visit of a cruise. Super place with excellent service and good food. Little pricey but worth it and lovely sea and beach area for the kids to play whilst we watched. Will be back!

We found this place by getting lost, after tramping along a pebbled beach for what seemed like hours in the hot sun. When we arrived I thought I was back in Bali, just loved all the décor and limestone carvings. We collapsed into chairs and had long cold drinks, followed by coffee. The view was so wonderful we could have... More
