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...

We have tried and failed many times to book a table here. Finally, we were successful, for lunch today and it certainly justifies the wait. In fact we have already booked a table to come for an evening meal for an evening in September, next time we visit Nice, and there were already several reservations in the book for that... More

A three-course meal is served. The shrimp and avocado entrée was delicious as was the herring. Both the veal and duck were amazing main courses. The pear and chocolate clafoutis was beyond words and the other desserts were very tasty. The server was extremely efficient bringing water, bread and refilling our wine glasses as needed, without asking. All four of... 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
