“Paella a rare treat outside of Spain”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Our landlord in Nice listed this place in their book of recommendations. It is almost a stone throw from our flat. The lunch special is paella and a glass of Sangria for 13.50 Euros. The sangria had a spiced wine taste that was unusual but not unpleasant. Sangria is often made with cinnamon but you could really taste it in this. The paella was a massive gut stuffing portion. My husband ordered the paella de mer and I had the paella de terre. Both contained at least 10 succulent mussels (my husbands had even more). The mer included a large king prawn and mine had a whole chicken breast and a third of a chorizo sausage as well. Each was served in a cast iron skillet with bread and lemons that could be freshly squeezed from a handy little device. The food was amazing if not overly plentiful and the service was good. The decor was chic and clearly Spanish. The only complaint was the heat. The interior was air conditioned but we were still dripping sweat throughout the meal. Another nice feature is you can get the paella to go which might be nice for an evening at the beach or a party. Overall it was a pleasant surprise.

“Beyond excellent”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

The chef and waitress are very nice! Especially the chef, he talked to us afterwards about football! The food is beyond excellent, you could n't expect better than this! Reaally is better than in Spain. Fresh seafood, cooked with precision and the best thing we took away what was left in the pan! Well another delicious lunch.

“Great Paella in Nice 尼斯最好吃的海鮮燉飯”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We had lunch at Chez Mireille today. The Paella Scampis we ordered was very delicious, lots of mussels, big prawns, tasty chorizo and rice. The chef came out to greet us and made sure we enjoyed the food. The waitress was very friendly. She offered us more rice in the end, but we were so full and could not eat anything more. In fact we decided to skip dinner as well. What a great experience!

“Paella Nicoise?”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

It may seem a bit strange visiting a paella restaurant in Nice. Nevertheless, the paella at Mireille is delicious and full of tasty ingredients. Don't expect to find anything else in the menu though,this place is serious about their paella.

We were cheerfully received and welcomed. The restaurant is cozy and the food is prepared with care. Don't miss the sangria.

Reviewed June 24, 2013

"Chez Mireille" at Nice, a wonderful little restaurant where you can eat the best Paella. Every meat is délicious.
We'll be back there very soon.
