    How much were you short changed, perhaps it was the cover charge for the jazz. Not a lesson for tourist, a lesson for everybody, but it happens. It has happened to me in the States too.

    Good informative page, and Boccaccio is one of my two favourite restaurants in Nice!

    These chips are fabulous! We bought ours at the LeClerc supermaché outside of Cahors. They will be the first thing we look for on our next trip to France. Just another thing the French do so well!

    Mary and Al, Bar des Oiseaux changed owner last Christmas, the bar is still there but the atmosphere is not the same. Not a jazz place anymore. :-(. Lluis
