As the Eatwith host community in Lyon is growing steadily, we want to highlight both the city’s oldest and emerging hosts, so you can dine with them this summer!

As the capital of the French Riviera, Nice offers an amazing array of culinary delights that can satisfy even the most discerning palates. From traditional dishes to more modern takes on classic cuisine, our hosts in the city can offer something for everyone! And with its Mediterranean climate and breathtaking scenery, Nice makes for a perfect destination to enjoy some truly delicious meals.

Quentin & Antoine

Quentin and Antoine are good friends who left their city jobs to pursue a life filled with two of its greatest pleasures: wine and cheese. As experts in their respective fields, Quentin specialises in wine while Antoine is a connoisseur of cheese. Together, they host tastings in the bohemian 1st arrondissement, La Croix Rousse.

Their location: above a charming wine shop on a picturesque cobbled street, their tastings take place in a vibrant neighbourhood surrounded by boutiques, local artisan shops, wine bars, and restaurants.

Both Quentin and Antoine are sociable personalities, passionate about their work, and interested in meeting new people. After years of studying the world of wine and cheese, they are knowledgeable hosts and, fortunately for us, are eager to share their expertise and wisdom!

Professional chef Arthaud has traveled the world to hone his culinary skills and now, having returned to his homeland, hosts like minded foodies in the heart of the city.

His food? Local, delicious, and beautifully presented. His cooking is also low waste – almost everything is repurposed.

His location? A historical apartment that used to belong to Napoleon, with views of the Saone river in the 2nd arrondissement. Adorned with art and gilded ornaments, Arthaud’s location is an unparalleled place to dine.

We asked him some questions so you can get to know him better:

I am excited about meeting new people and making them discover my universe, my food, and simply to share – because that’s what life is about
