If you want a perfect meal in Nice, Le Chantecler will definitely deliver. The food is divine, with fresh local ingredients used and presentation of each dish is second to none- in fact each course looks like artwork. The waiters are charming, knowledgeable and attentive and can also offer excellent advice about things to do in Nice. I treated my... More

We have been to the Chantecler three years in a row for their stunning Christmas set menu; although expensive, it is far & away the best place in Nice for a top gastronomic treat. Staff are the best; they remember repeat customers but are charming to all, are knowledgeable, helpful & totally unstuffy. The room itself isn't the most beautiful... More

The discovery menu was as good as it gets. 8 very imaginative courses with a very nice wine list. This is one of the best restaurants in all of the Cote d'Azure so you need to book well ahead.

This is one of those nights out, that will stay in your memory for a long time. It was the third time we had dinner here and all three were great experiences. Le Crillon in Paris might be more beautiful, Ritz more exclusive, but as for the food, go to Le Chantecler. Very friendly staff. Even a woman who complaint... More

Its all you would expect from a 2 hat restaurant in a fantastic hotel. Great dining room, slick service, great food and with a very strong price tag. If you don't want to pay through the nose then don't go here.

The evening started badly when we arrived promptly for our 7:00 pm dinner reservation. We opened the door only to have our path blocked by a rude and abrassive little man who abruptly declared "you cannot come in! We are having a meeting, wait in the Rotunda and we will call you when we are finished." Because my wife really... More

I love so much the decoration of the room, the Belgian taperstry, the cock displayed as a the mascot of the restaurant. The food is excellent, service is great, ten maître d is friendly.

Just WOW!!! I was always wondering if fancy foods that look nice on the plate will also taste good or it is just the looks. It seems for Le Chantecler it not only looks good on the plate, but also it will surprise pleasantly every taste bud that you have :) As a treat for my husband's birthday we tried... More
