The U2 frontman is believed to have been dining with friends at La Petite Maison in the region.
Bono was reportedly at a Nice restaurant during the Bastille Day terror attack last Thursday (14 July).
According to the owner of La Petite Maison on the seafront, the U2 frontman was dining with friends when panic broke out in the area.
As reported by the Daily Mail, restaurant owner Anne-Laure Rubi told La Parisienne magazine: "Suddenly I saw people running, without shouting. It was a silent panic - it was extraordinary".
Talking about the restaurant going into lockdown from 10.30pm, Ms Rubi revealed that the U2 frontman had to hide "like everybody else," "had to put his hands on his head, and was told to remain calm".
Following the attack on Thursday, the band posted a message on their official Twitter page, writing: "Love is bigger than anything in its way".
