Exceptional evening

My wife and I had a great evening at Le Chantecler from start to finish. The service was very attentive and well balanced. The wine recommendations were very helpful and still with reasonably priced selections. The crab and mango cannelonis were exceptionally good.

The food was phenomenal and the staff was amazing and the entire experience was great. My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon in Nice and after I let the restaurant know upon booking they made the night really special. Everything was great, however what warranted this review was how the management went the extra mile. There was a wedding in... More

Could not fault the staff or the quality of the menu and food. Exceptional cuisine. The prices have greatly increased since we we last here a couple of years ago and they have the appearance of trying to price out, in Basil Faulty's terms, the 'riffraff'. The decor has not changed for years, in particular the carpet whose colours are... More

We had an excellent dinner at Chantecler, choosing the Champagne menu which featured all the signature dishes of the chef, accoumpanied by four different Mumm champagnes. The highlight was the langoustine and Tête de veau starter accompanied by the grand cru Mumm champagne, although the turbot in champagne foam accompanied by the Mumm blancs de blancs was also sublime. The... More

Apart from food, everything is 5 star, but Food stands 80% of my review, that is why I can only give 3 stars, food is not as good as I expect in a Michelin restaurant, I have been to far better Michelin restaurant. I took discovery menu, all the courses are ok, but not amazing, flavour dose not stand out.

Le Chantecler a Michelin star restaurant on the french riviera in Nice is an unforgetable experience. At the entrance you are greeted by a bust of King Louise the XIV, escorted like royalty, the best seat overlooking the promenade and above an original oil painting of the french king’s son bearing down on us. It was my wifes birthday, the... More

An expensive yet completely satisfying dining experience. The restaurant is located on the Promenade des Anglais approximately 1km west of Vieux Nice. It is in the opulent and elegant Le Negresco Hotel. Men be sure to dress appropriately - jacket and tie definitely recommended. Reservations are an absolute must and book ahead as there are not many tables within. I... More

The tastes arranged by their award-winning chef were arranged in a perfect way. The blue lobster tempura was one of the best entrees I have ever had and I do not say that lightly. The chef is well-deserving of his two Michelin stars. Service was superb and wine/champagne selection was top notch. The restaurant itself is as classy as it... More

Is it ridiculously expensive? Yes. But it is the best restaurant in Nice and the outstanding food service and ambiance stands against some of the finest restaurants anywhere. This is fine French dining at its best with elegant service. One should not expect typical fast turnover American service that some seem to expect. I agree with one reviewer so said... More
