This was our first visit to Nice and the Cote d'Azure, so we were intent on sampling several well-recommended restaurants along the coast. Picked up on Chez Palmyre from Trip Advisor and a couple of tour books. Since most days we took advantage of the Cote d'Azure's excellent transportation to nearby towns and sometimes did not return to Nice until... More

We discovered this restaurant 5 years ago when visiting Nice so when we were back in the city last month it was top of our to do list. We managed to get a table for lunch and spent the week walking past watching people enjoying the food. When it was our turn the food and the service did not disappoint.... More

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!
