The weekend of July 23rd, and after six months of training, it’s time for Andre’s IronMan!! We head out there on a Friday night and are there until Monday… with the big event happening on Sunday!
Over the course of the weekend, we spend most of the time at one beach club, Le Galet, which has a gorgeous beachfront setting with quite affordable food, given the location!
We tried many of the dishes…
A Nicoise salad… obviously, a must when in Nice! This is one of the better ones I’ve had, the tuna was really fresh and all the veggies were good… including some really nice broad beans!
Another favourite… the fresh linguine with salmon and asparagus… in a cream sauce. This was actually delicious, they managed to cook the pasta so that it had a salmon essence to it; whether or not you had a piece on your fork, the whole dish tasted of the salmon!
And how could we go without ordering the sea bass? Very fresh, this was the only dish on the menu that was over 30 EUR (again, given the location, not bad!) With sides of courgette and beans, with some mixed rice, this was one of the healthier options that we tried…The takeaway? Definitely worth a visit if you come to Nice and want to stay on the beach, as Le Galet is central, has nice beach chairs (make sure to book in advance) and a good menu that meant we spent three whole days hanging out here!
