This is hotel restaurant and it very well designed and great service. Food was just plain and not interesting at all. The restaurant was half empty but we had to wait for each dish for a long time. It seemed that all "testing menu" guests were serviced first. We were forced to get a glass of Champagne even after we... More

This is simply not just a meal but an entire experience. We had a lovely evening and was made extremely welcomed by Romain the general Manager. The food was beautifully presented and ceremoniously delivered to the table. A pricey evening, but what an experience! Just loved it. Smart dress is essential, sit back and enjoy!

Very nice place and a welcoming a 2 star worthy. But then the level dropped. We have been to several star restaurants this year including 2 3 star. This restaurant is prized as a 3 star , but doesn't serve food with enough excitement in the tast, and it takes way too long between the dishes. When they missed to... More

I went yesterday for a dinner and I was surprised with the food taste and the service. Actually it's a very pleasant place in which you can dress up and have an excellent food accompanied with the best service, their staff is one of a kind, very professional and very well trained. We tried their Ribeye with mushrooms as a... More

Our two families (4 adults, 4 teenagers) enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu (chef's choice). Solid gourmet experience with beautiful, very professional service and a lovely traditional, formal ambience. Not nearly as pretentious as other similar restaurants in the Côte D'Azur. Expertly crafted food. Disappointed that the main course was pork (no beef, no lamb, no foie gras). With four... More

I like fine dining and am often disappointed when visiting new venues but on this occasion I have to say it was better than expected. The menu's were comprehensive with good choice. We took the fixed price menu and everything was absolutely delicious. Well done Chef! The wine list needs improvement, too much terroir and heritage rather than nice wines... More

My husband and I have been disappointed with “Michelin Star” restaurants, particularly in France, so I was reluctant to give it another go at this, admittedly, pricey venue. We walked into a beautifully appointed dining salon, outfitted with lime green and fuscia pink velvet and pink table cloths. Our service began with the champagne trolley, which we happily accepted. Diners... More

Le Chantecler presents a finer dining experience than even some 3 Michelin star restaurants. Original, creative presentations and flavors. Superior service quality. Elegant and creative dining room. Delicious wine list and scotch list. Get the prie fix menu and let them take you along the ride. Coffee brewing was too harsh and suppressed the finer flavors, which is a shame... More

I recently dined at the gastronomic restaurant Le Chantecler at the hotel Negresco with my family. This was not our first time at the restaurant, and we had enjoyed previous visits. Our surprises started even before our arrival; I had booked the restaurant by phone some six weeks before the date of our dinner. Two days beforehand, I went past... More

We were very impressed with all aspects of Le Chantecler. The food was outstanding and lived up to the 2* expectations. The explanations of each course were delivered in impeccable English by our waiter and we were made to feel very welcome by all the staff. The service was a wonderful touch on top of the outstanding food. We had... More
