In the last few years, Nice has undergone dramatic changes thanks to a lot of renovations, and this in turn has brought in an amazing amount of restaurants and bistros that have enriched the already prosperous French culinary culture in Nice.
Also, as is the case with all of France in general, Nice has inherited the top-of-the-class culinary experience as the rest of the country has, offering visitors an extraordinary variety of dishes, all of excellent quality even on family run, neighborhood restaurants.

The Chantecler is by far the most luxurious restaurant in Nice. It is located inside the famous Negresco Hotel and can be accessed right through the lobby of the hotel. The restaurant is also famous for offering some of the best cuisine in the city with a varied menu and an excellent selection of wines. Now, despite being an upscale restaurant, the Chantecler happens to offer set meals as well, which come at an incredibly low price for the place, and which are just as good as their “a la carte” offerings.
