Visit the 100% Nice shopLe Goût de Nice, a 15-minute walk from the Best Western Hotel Lakmi. The shop puts the spotlight on food and cosmetics items from the region on two floors and over 150 m2.

This exceptional "shop window" for the city was opened in 2017 at the initiative of Christian Estrosi, the Mayor of Nice, to show off the region's richness and the wide range of landscapes in Nice. 23 producers and farmers were chosen according to special criteria to proudly represent the 49 communes of the Nice Côte d’Azur metropolitan area. The visit is an exceptional journey into the heart of Nice and all the flavours on offer in the city.
