Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our first visit to Le Panier and we had a fabulous evening. We opted for the 7 course menu and the food was inventive and delicious. Cocktails were very good too! Staff were attentive and knowledgeable about the food. Compared to tasting menus...in the UK, we thought this was very good value for money. Overall we had a fab experience and will be booking again.More

I made a reservation with this restaurant ahead of my EU trip with a credit card booking. This restaurant was one of the main highlights of my foodie experience in Europe. I took the 5 courses and oh la la ~~ for the rest of...the evening! Cheers! :)More

We sat in another building across the street from the main restaurant. It was nic nice but the lights was a bit strong. Not so cosy. But after a while they turned the lights down. I had high expections on the food but I must...say I am disappointed. We had a vegetarian 5 course meal. But we have eaten a lot better food in other places. For example. There was dish with peas and potatis and tofu. The peas and the potatoes were undercooked and the tofu dry and unfortunately no saus. So the whole dish was very dry. The best dish was the dessert! And the service was great too. We hade a very nice guy helping us.More

I dined at Le Panier in Nice last Sunday evening and thoroughly enjoyed the 5-course surprise menu. The flavors in the dashi and fish courses were exceptional, showcasing the chef's expertise. The attentive and knowledgeable staff added to the overall delightful experience. The wine selection...complemented the dishes well. While the restaurant got a bit busy, creating some noise, and the meat dish lacked a bit of flavor compared to preceding courses, Le Panier stands out as one of the best in Nice. It deserves a Michelin recommendation, surpassing other Guide-listed restaurants. Keep up the excellent work and high standards! Well done.More

We had a wonderful lunch here today. Beyond expectations. The service was exceptionally thoughtful, friendly and efficient. The four courses we had were all Michelin star worthy ( we’ve eaten in several ‘starred’ restaurants so have a benchmark) in their level of quality and creativity....There is no menu to choose from but the chef adjusts taking into account the client’s wishes or allergies etc. Thank you so much to the entire team for making this special day for me - my birthday - a memorable one.More

Le Panier was recommended by the owner of our Airbnb and it proved to be a real winner for lunch! It’s tucked down a side street, so not somewhere you would stumble across, but it was clearly popular as it soon filled up - so...the atmosphere was great. All 4 courses were full of flavour, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The service was terrific, with all the staff really friendly and attentive. Overall, it felt like an intimate, relaxed dinner party at a good friend’s house. So, if you’re in Nice…rather than wondering around looking for a place in the squares that you like the look of …head to Le Panier!More

Came with a group of 5 for the 5 course tasting menu on a busy Saturday night. I don’t eat fish but the waiter and chef ensured my dishes were adapted to my needs and all of the meals were not only delicious but also...beautiful to look at too. Our waiter was fabulous. Wonderful evening.More

We arrived just after opening time, and snagged a table without a reservation. After our seating, it seemed that they were turning people away. Diners have two choices: Five courses for 65 euros, or seven courses for 75 euros. We chose the former. Each course...was served promptly, beginning with an amuse bouche, followed by a tidy tomato salad. The three mains—fish, lamb, veal—each came with delicious sides, including a standout green beans with cherry barbecue sauce. Dessert was cake with sorbet. Everything we were served was excellent. Each meal was simple, elegant, delicious, fresh, and appropriately portioned. There was a unifying theme—cherries—which gently tied everything together. The service was prompt and polite. Each dish was explained. Plates and cutlery removed and replaced on time. The ambience could not be better. We sat on a quiet side street of Old Nice. A few pedestrians drifted through the restaurant, and not too many. My boyfriend and I eat out often, and carefully record our opinions of each restaurant in a Google sheet. This was the first that got a solid 5 out of 5 by both of us. It was by far the best restaurant I've ever had the pleasure of eating at. It may be worth visiting Nice again, just to eat here.More

We did the 5 course Prix Fixe menu. Everything was amazing! We also did the wine pairing & wines were delicious. Service and setting were outstanding! The only drawback were smokers at adjoining tables. We don't understand why the restaurant allows smoking when it has...such a negative impact on the incredible food they serve!More

We had a beautiful 5 course dinner at Le Panier and would recommend to include this in your travel plans when visiting Nice. You will need to book in advance. The value they give you through the food and service is worth much more than...you pay. The chef goes out of his way to look after you and the staff are fantastic as well. Amazing experience!More

The best Eastern Sunday dinner ever. The restaurant offered suprise menu on this special day and we choosed 5 course menu with two different wines. Food and wines were delicious and even though the place was full, the staff was friendly and smiley and made...everybody feel wellcome. And they really had all in control all the time, even though the restaurant consists of two different rooms plus terrace. Strong recommendation!More
