Amazing value, 17 euros for 3 course meal lunch and dinner. Booked solid, we were lucky to get a table at night by booking at lunchtime. Choice of 3 or 4 dishes at each course, we had blinis with smoked salmon, lentil salad with foie gras, followed by coquelet and risotto. Finally one cheese and one gorgeous chocolate pot. We... More

Nice autentic atmosphere, fair princing for both food and drinking. A bit heavy meal but real autentic food from the French country side kitchen. Serving of food is quick. Tables placed too close to each other

We booked in advance and could only get a table at 9pm and shared with a lovely couple, who were finishing their meal. Only one waiter, but he was efficient and friendly. All the food was delicious and the atmosphere was so typically French. We just chanced upon it one evening whilst walking around Old Nice. Such a restaurant in... More

Mind you, you will need to book. This place seats maybe 30, and there is only one seating per night. Genuine French cooking offered as a 3-course menu where you can choose from 4 starters, 4 mains, and 4 desserts. The food is ungarnished. This restaurant lets the food come in focus, without the often overworked garnishes. You will get... More

Reminded me of old style Auberge fare, choice may be limited but excellent quality at a superb price. Starter of Terrine of Lentils with Pork & Foie Gras, mains of Canard with fresh vegetables. Lovely fresh baked bread. Quantities are not huge, but more than adequate. Wine list is small, but excellent Provençal red, 2009 vintage, so not freshly trod... More

My husband and I were travelling in Nice in May 2014. We found this restaurant while walking through "Old Nice". You definitely need reservations, which you can make the day of if you stop by the restaurant early enough. It is a very small restaurant. The owner is a retired Michelin star chef, and he and his wife cook everything... More

Chez Palmyre really is a gem. It offers a 3 courses meal for only 17€. The food is amazing with great quality ingredients. One of the best meals we had on our numerous trips to France. A find!

Have just finished a wonderful lunch at the Palmyre restaurant in one of the narrow streets of Old Nice. For only 26 Euro each including house wine and tip we had a great three course meal. Sure, the restaurant does not have an exterior terrace and the table d'hote menu was quite restricted but the food was delicious and well... More

This is a great restaurant, friendly, cosy, you will share a table unless you fill it. The food is all home, well the chef cooks it from fresh to a very high standard. Even saw him making little biscuits. You will need to book unless you are lucky.
