Chez Palmyre

Top choice french in Vieux Nice

Look no further for authentic Niçois cooking than this packed, cramped, convivial little space in the heart of the old town. The menu is very meat-heavy, with plenty of tripe, veal, pot-cooked chicken and the like, true to the traditional tastes of Provençal cuisine. It’s a bargain, and understandably popular. Book well ahead, even for lunch.
