There are some really wonderful vegetarian restaurants in Provence that benefit from having fresh fruit and vegetables – grown in a sunny climate – right on their doorstep. Here’s our guide to the top 10 vegetarian restaurants in the region.
Koko Green in Nice, specialises in vegetarian and raw food. It’s open for lunch at the back end of the week (for dinner too on Friday and Saturdays). It does lovely tacos and smoothies and really is a great healthy alternative. Their menu changes weekly so check out their Facebook page for daily menu options.
There are three branches of Green Bear Coffee around Marseille and all of them offer great vegetarian/vegan food and drinks. They’re a great place to work (with free WiFi) which is probably reflected in the fact that they close on the weekend. Very friendly.
The Ecomotive is a co-working space that sells organic food. It opened four years ago, and unusually for Marseille, it’s open long hours and every day. It’s a great stop on your way to, or from, Marseille’s St Charles train station as it can be found at the foot of the steps leading up to it. A good range of vegan and vegetarian food.
Le Cours en Vert is located on the achingly hip Cours Julien, which in itself is a great place to hang out. This restaurant makes it even better. It’s a vegetarian and vegan place – no fish – that’s casual and friendly. Take the time to wander this exciting area afterwards. People love it.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.

I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination.
