Whilst visiting Nice and staying at the legendary Le Negresco Hotel, one of the highlights was to surprise my wife with a decision to dine at the 2-star Michelin Restaurant of Le Chantecler located within the same hotel. As my wife was not prepared for this, she only packed her Nike walking shoes (black with a few dashes of white,... More

Sadly not a good experience - from the food to the service to the decor - spend your money else where - Colombe d'Or, Cherve d'Or, Cap Estel etc. really not worth it.

The Chantecler is part of the famous Negresco Hotel, which itself is part of the Grand Hotel tradition (doormen in knee breeches etc). From the hotel, it is accessed from the vast central lobby, which is largely empty and still cannot seem to find a use for itself. Service in the restaurant is as you would expect, attentive and knowledgeable.... More

Overall experience was "good" but for what I was paying I expected nothing less than absolutely "superb." My wife and I were celebrating our 4 year anniversary. We had reservations at 7 PM. We arrived at 6:57 PM. We were told to wait outside as a meeting was underway. They would come and get us when they were ready. At... More

Two Michelin-stars commits, this restaurant met our expectations. We had a wonderful "surprise / discovery dinner, well composed with matching wines. Friendly and professional staff enhanced the experience. The VERY HIGH price of the dinner is the only negative aspect worth mentioning. An evening to remember, as a one night experience.

We had eaten at Taillevent in Paris the previous week. This being in much the same price range, we couldn't help compare the two restaurants in our minds. Le Chantecler came off worse. At the beginning they offered us a glass of champagne - which we normally refuse - but this time I mistakenly agreed. Two slightly stale glasses of... More

A beautifully romantic Michelin starred restaurant. The service was like watching an orchestra perform as the staff worked in perfect synchrony to ensure the most excellent service. I shared the beef rib with my partner which was my least favourite course the meat being quite chewy for my taste and there was a family with some quite noisy children but... More
