Great choice for our one dinner in Nice!

We selected this restaurant for a representative meal in Nice. It is located in the old town and is very small and owner operated. We chose the 17 Euro three course meal (four options for each course) and our party of 4 was very pleased with our choices. The restaurant was completely filled... read more

After reading so many rave reviews about Chez Palmyre - I held court outside the restaurant early one morning to get a reservation 2 nights later. It worked and I was so excited about our visit. On arrival tonight - the restaurant was full. We were seated in a very tight table for 4. Suffice it to say the other... More

There is a set price of 17 euros for three course, four options to choose from for each course. This place is unpretentious, small, cosy, hard to get into and loved by the locals. The atmosphere is relaxing and you might have to share a table. The owners appear more keen on delivering good food and making sure that people... More

If you are looking for a typical Nicois restaurant in the old town, you need look no further! Serving great casseroles & Nicois specialialities . It is a very small restaurant so booking is essential.

It was sheer passion in the kitchen. We had to make two trips and we really kept calling the restaurant even after being refused as they were fully booked around Christmas. Then we called at 11 am and we were the first ones to be seated. Loved the meal.

Had a quick lunch today with friends at Chez Palmyre, in the heart of Nice's Vieille Ville. Although Palmyre is no longer there, the ambient is still reminiscent of bygone times And pleasantly furnished like an old grocery store. We pleasantly shared a table with other patrons which adds to the atmosphere. No tablecloths on the rustic wooden tables, yet... More

We had very high expectations for our dinner at Chez Palmyre based on TripAdvisor reviews. Although we did not make reservations, we stopped by before the restaurant's 7 pm opening and we were told that there was one open table for us and we should come back at 7 pm. When we returned at 7 pm, there was a sizable... More

...if this place is any good or not. I stopped by at the end of the lunch service and asked if I could reserve for that evening. Full. What about tomorrow? Full. What about the day after that? Full. The man I spoke to said I'd need to reserve two weeks in advance. What about lunch? Well, you need to... More
