had lunch here whilst in Nice.
chose a sunny day, and sat out side, soaking up the atmos.
we didn't intend staying as long as we did, but the wine, food and view was so nice that lunch almost turned into dinner.
really nice food, good service, and quite reasonable given the location.

One would not expect to eat more than decent food somewhere at the beach. But this restaurant really turned out to be very impressive with excellent food. In our first visit we just snacked a pizza for two in the beach chairs. Just the way we like it, thin and crispy with just the right amount of topping.
The second visit was on the table with appetizer seafood salad and some pasta as a main dish. Excellent and very fresh again. We can highly recommend this place and will definitely return on our next visit to Nice.

A great place to spend the day on Nice's very large stoned/ rocky beach. It's not cheap to hire a bed and parasol (but it IS the south of France!) and worth every euro. And you do then have waiter service at your sun bed where you can eat drink and be merry without going to the restaurant area (although that's another option if you prefer) There is also a no charge area of comfortable sofas where you can sit if you simply wish to have a drink, lunch or an early supper on the beach in a more relaxed mode than the restaurant area. We found the staff always to be very friendly, speaking several languages but always appreciating it if you speak to them in theirs! We were caught by a sudden tropical storm for an hour or so one day and the staff were great, still serving food and drinks (which we always found to be very good) in the restaurant while rushing about trying to salvage the sun bed mattresses and sofa cushions from the unbelievable downpour! Good fun!

this is a fun and happening beach bar and restaurant. Great place for a drink, friendly efficient staff. Very good food and reasonably priced for the location and ambience. Could not recommend the beds, a bit like sardines in a can. Read the review on here about an alleged credit card fraud, I would say this is impossible, they bring the machine to your table. I have been here many times, it is a very reputable place, with steady and reliable staff.

We have enjoyed lunching at Le Sporting for years but today we were very disappointed; the Salade Nicoise was the worst ever experienced. Perhaps, the staff had that end of season feeling but given how much busier other neighbouring beach restaurants were, we suspect Le Sporting has been in decline for a while.
