A typical Nice restaurant

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

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...

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
