Housemade kitchen. Amazing

Chez Palmyre is one of my favourite places in the Riviera. The restaurant is quite small, homemade food, good value for money. Went there few times, have always tasted great food. The only problem is: you have to book way in advance (at least 2-3 weeks) in order to secure a place.

We always go to Chez Palmyre on our frequent visits to Nice (have to book in advance) and had an excellent lunch here on our latest visit. (Fully booked for dinner throughout our 10 day stay!) The format is unchanged ( three courses, with four choices for each, for €17) and all our dishes were delicious. We felt that the... More

The restaurant is small, with a great vibe, food is exceptional with a great wine list to match, prices are cheap. Do yourself a favour and bypass the tourist traps and check this out not only is it better priced but the food is delicious.

First off, make sure to make a reservation a couple weeks in advance, if possible. However, you may be able to get in without a reservation if it's only for 2 people (and you're lucky). My wife and I showed up a few minutes before the 730pm opening time and were allowed to dine as long as we left by... More

It took us over a month to get a reservation here. Not totally sure what all the fuss is about. It's a very tiny restaurant with family style tables, so you will be sitting with another couple. The phone rang non stop while we were there of people trying to get a reservation. There is one person waiting on everyone... More

Chez Palmyre is one of the most frequently mentioned restaurants, when searching for place to go in Nice. No wonder! This is a great restaurant with a good reputation, and apparently, a restaurant brand that was built with good and affordable food as the main branding activity. The dishes were tasty and perfectly cooked. Nothing especially adventurous, though. If you... More

Our second visit, achieved by phoning from home and booking. But could only get in for lunch. Still a lovely experience, excellent value at 17 euros for 3 courses, and none of them large - ideal as I hate enormous platefuls.We had the squid salad with mousseline, sole en papillote, duck with olives (amazing earthy flavours) and lovely puds of...

What more can I say, 100s of five ***** reviews. I agree with every positive word written, I made sure to thank the two staff in the kitchen afterwards. 11/10
