As others have said. Great food, at SUCH a good price. More traditional home-style cooking, rather the same as many others. Limited choice works. Found good company when there last month, just as well, as you're sitting right next to the next table. We were lucky enough to get in on a Monday night, and would have returned later in the week, but were told it was fully booked.

Yes it is often impossible to get a table and that is a recommendation in itself. We always book weeks in advance and have always thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. As others have said, it is the kind of French cooking that seems almost to have disappeared - more is the pity. The value is exceptional, the ambiance friendly and the location ideally placed in the Old Town.

This restaurant does not serve the typical fare called French Cuisine which you get in most restaurants all over France but delicious "real" French cooking that mothers and grandmothers serve their families.

As mentioned in other reviews it is a very small restaurant (seats 15-16 clients) with a lot of ambiance and charm that is situated in the heart of Old Nice. It still has the look and decor of when it was first opened in the 20's and this is supplemented by carefully selected antique touches (old phones, etc.) It is reminiscent of Second World War movies and you almost expect members of the French Resistance to walk in for a meal.

The September Air France in-flight Magazine had an article on the 10 must do/see things in Nice. Of the hundreds of very good or excellent restaurants in the Nice area, Chez Palmyre was mentioned with all the famous hotels and museums. It is a well deserved endorsement.

It has a set Menu at 15 euros and you get three choices each day that include an appetizer, main course and dessert. Wines are very good and very reasonably priced. We have eaten at this restaurant with another couple four times and we tend to order different items from the menu and all four of us have always enjoyed everything we ordered. It is a really culinary experience at an incredibly reasonable price.

Because of the excellent quality of the food, most of the time you cannot get a reservation unless you call at least 2 weeks in advance. If you plan a trip of at least a week to Nice try to book as soon as you arrive and hope to get a table.

To get into this little gem of a restaurant you will have to book in advance, it has quite a small menu to choose from (this may help to acheive the astounding price of just 15 euros for 3 courses!!!) The dishes themselves shout "home cooking" simple food cooked to perfection, a great atmosphere and helpful and friendly waiter service all add up to a great meal out!!!

We booked a table for lunch a few days in advance based on trip advisor recommendations. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch (3 courses for 15E), very tasty and fresh. Carmelised pork ribs with mash were to die for. The service was very friendly and the waiter translated the menu for us. There was a choice of 3 or 4 starters, mains and desserts. 50cl of wine for 5Euro was very reasonable. This is a cosy restaurant with great ambience and a welcoming feel. Before paying we booked our next meal! Looking forward to it already!
