Best source for fresh seafood in or around Nice

OK, we just left Paris for 5 days down in a villa near Nice. Travelling with the kids, so the three stars were price prohibitive, but had great meals at Dans Les Landes, Cafe Breizh and Au Passage. Au Passage was an aboslute stand out. Talented young chefs, who found a low rent location so they could spend money on quality ingredients and deliver great value. Outstanding food, even if the price point, decor and location suggest something a bit less. ....but I digress. I will do a more complete report later.

Right now, our need is this. The villa has a wood oven, a charcoal grill (2 actually to allow different temperatures) and is overlooking Nice from up in the hills. If I could buy from the fishermen as the boats came in, it would be ideal. If not, what is the next best option? Locations for cheese and charcuterie would also be welcomed. Local produce is not an issue - the farm below us has a bunch! Jeez, I love this country!
