Great lunch towards the end of the season

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.

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

I come to Eze every few years and I always look forward to visiting Papaya. This time we were a party of 8 and had dinner. It was pretty quiet for a Saturday but the restaurant along the beach was having a beach party. I would recommend the seared tuna, it was amazing.

This is a busy place. The rest of the family and friends had already eaten lunch when I came to the beach, so I are alone. My waiter had almost zero attention on me. I had to ask for bread. Bread came, but no plate. I asked for a plate. Ordered a hamburger (nearby several people eating hamburgers a looking... More

We had a hard time finding the tunnel that went under the road out to the Papaya Beach Restaurant. I'm glad we were persistent. We had a really nice meal with lovely service. The owner was very friendly and the waitress was also great. We had the zucchini blossom fritters for an appetizer. They were delicious! We also had the... More
