For evenings one needs to book several weeks in advance, French country style dishes, starters and desserts are usually cold, which allows time for fresh cooking of main courses. Friendly and efficient service, popular with locals and tourists. If you do not like your meal you probably have made the wrong choice rather than poor food.Evening is best if you... More

Literally everything about this place was superb! The best food I've ever had in France, delicious wine, all reasonably priced and the restaurant manager was brilliant! Have a few more days in Nice and will probably come back again before we go home!

Got lucky today....I was able to get a table for 2 without a reservation. Needless to say that a reservation is usually a must to get in this very small and charming restaurant, decorated with a variety of antique collectibles. Friendly because you might end up sharing a long table with strangers and the conversation will come easily . An... More

Just happened to score a same day reservation and what a treat. Like dining in the home of a French family. Cozy atmosphere and tasty food. A beef dish was served in a creuset casserole. Rich and yummy. Soup and dessert also fine. Of course the price , 17 euros is just the best news. Don't miss this experience. Reserve... More

We visited this hidden small pearl in the middle of August 2016. Looking for new tastes and local french cosine experience and we found it. Guys are not pay attention to details of sophisticated manners and it makes you feel like local who came as friend. Formidable!

Based on TripAdvisor, we tried Chez Palmyre, very lucky because we only called one hour in advance :) the place was full, there are some long "tables d'amis" and some tables for 4 or 2 couples. It's small, family-style, old school kitsch, I liked the cosiness of it all. We ate in 1.5hr (there are 2 shifts). Customers choose a... More

We found this little gem in Nice's Old City (Vieux Ville) the first time we visited, years ago. They are open from Noon till 1:30 and 7:30 till 9:00, Monday through Friday only. The menu offerings change each week. It seats about 20 people. Obviously, reservations are necessary. Others have written that they have found openings just showing up, but... More

A small busy charming restaurant tucked away in Nice old town. A perfect stop for a lunch whilst exploring the older part of Nice or dinner in the evening. It does get busy and the recommendations to book should not be ignored. Tables are long refectory types so be prepared to be elbow to elbow with other diners and possibly... More
