Our Family went to the restaurant on 20th July 2014 and was persuvaded to choose the "surprice menu". We did not regret this recommendation! 7 small courses followed by excellent recommendations from the sommerlier: expensive, but perfectly chosen! After our meal we joined the piano bar - had some superb mixed cocktails and listened to professional muscisians. Our conclusion is... More

Amazing theatrical experience - food will never be the same again. Expensive but if you can afford it, do it. We were there for my birthday and were treated so specially. The food was delivered in such a perfect setting. The Negresco is just like a museum and we had an opportunity to explore that as well! Lovely!

We had the pleasure of dining here whilst we were on our honeymoon in Nice. It had been on my wish list for some time, and it did not disappoint. The food and service where phenomenal, and the interior and furnishings were something else. The price was approximately 500 euros for 2 persons, but I was more than happy to... More

This is fine dining at it's best. Where other countries have relaxed their service to give a more informal air the French seem to have embraced it and all the spectacle of multiple waiters, silver service, trolleys for everything and seemingly nearly as many staff as diners. When you're paying for Michelin star food i think you deserve a level... More

Our second night in Nice and my husband was feeling extravagant, we walked past the hotel and read the menu and booked for dinner that night. From the minute we walked in we felt special, the room, the service and then the star of the night, the food. Every mouthful was a treat. We had the menu, about 105 euros,... More

The lobster Cannelloni was so good I had to ration myself by just cutting small pieces off at a time. The sweet breads, which are a speciality were the best I've ever tasted. We had two courses each, shared a dessert and drank a nice bottle of wine with liquors and coffee. The bill came to around €500. Last night... More

We had the Chef's surprise menu, sweetbreads, caviar, Dublin bay prawns, veal plus beautiful desserts. Not so much dinner as an experience, stage managed to perfection. Be sure not to have anything else planned for the evening as it takes about three hours. Enjoyed the experience immensely but will probably not return.

We had high expectations for a 2-star Michelin and C'est Magnifique! The Chef's Discovery Surprise tasting menu was fabulous. I wish that I had taken photos or wrote down every dish that we had, but the most memorable were the lobster, caviar with gold leaf, three different desserts. Every course was beautifully presented and each wonderful. We dined for over... More
