I will remember this lunch a very long time! We just happened to be there at the right time and there was room for two left. Tiny restaurant was full of course. We felt privileged and lucky to be there. Food was simple and somehow perfect.

I know you can find better food, and you can have more space, but Chez Palmyre, everything is homogenous, good meal, friendly service, quick and alert, and a pricerange I will consider more than fair, so all in all I will give it a 5-note. I have been Chez Palmyre - and I have loved the place - since my... More

This is a must-try restaurant in Nice, it's small, the tables are cramped together, but it creates a great bustling atmosphere. The menu offers three choices per course, the food is superb and it's good value for the high quality. Bookings are absolutely essential, whether for lunch or evening, and it's advisable to book well in advance of your visit.... More

Book a table in advance! The food is great and the restaurant is very cosy. It is easier to get a table for lunch than for dinner, so if they are fully booked in the evenings, lunch is a great alternative.

We have been going to Nice for a number of years and have always liked the look of this old style restaurant but have never been able to get a table. This year, we phoned about 10 days in advance and were successful. It operates on a very simple prix fixe basis. The menu changes about once a week and... More

Wanting to experience a prix fixe menu, we ventured to Chez Palmyre, What a wonderful surprise. It was such a refreshing experience. A limited set menu, using fresh produce, reasonably priced and served with a smile and little fuss. Communal tables helped create a cosy environment. Loved every minute!

Good quality French cooking , not fine dining but excellent. Service friendly and competent. Small , demand means you have to reserve at least a week in advance. We usually do two weeks ahead. Worth the effort. How the restaurant provided a 3 course meal of this quality at 18 euros is staggering. long may it continue. Paul

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
