A micro-restaurant just by the Gare de Lyon owned by a charming Southerner, Jean-Louis Lacaze, Réparate's blue walls and affordable cooking brings a shot of Niçois sunshine to the neighbourhood with its above-average range of salads, sandwiches and traditional dishes, including a 'socca' chickpea crêpe. Seated at a wooden table with a view of the chalkboard menu and the glass-topped bar, we enjoyed a hot pan bagnat sandwich overflowing with fresh vegetables, potatoes and succulent chicken for €8, a juicy pissaladière for €7 and stuffed vegetables drenched in fruity olive oil for €11.50. The traditional Niçoise salad is a fresh and bright contemporary version, with mesclun, broad beans, artichokes and tomatoes. We finished with a lemon meringue tart, both sweet and citrus sour, for just €3 a slice. You can sit in the window or get your food to go.
