    So far of everything that I tasted, the best was this Nougat store, called Maison du Nougat, 29 rue Gaston de Saporta (it's the street that goes from the Town Hall to the headquarters of the festival, at Place de l'Archevêché.

    This restaurant, aptly named (L'Opéra) is outstanding: great service, spectacular food, well-priced (50 euros per person, food, wine and service included) - 18 Rue Fermée, phone +33 4 42 12 44 67, open for dinner only from 7 PM to midnight. Highly recommended!
