The Côte d'Azur is known around the world for its wide selection of five-star resorts and world-class restaurants, many of which have one, two, or more Michelin stars sitting on their accolade shelves. 

So, if you’re a foodie looking for exquisite culinary experiences for your upcoming luxury French holiday, rest assured this elite destination will do the trick quite nicely. 

To make your night-out even more special, we recommend booking private dining Côte d'Azur style. As if the standard dining rooms of these places weren’t enough grandeur, private dining provides that je ne sais quoi exclusive type of experience some only get to enjoy just once in their lives.

If you’re in need of a first-class venue to play host for a special occasion or celebration, these are the best private dining experiences in Côte d'Azur for you to check out. Bon appétit!

Plan a private dinner at Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée

Staying at a five-star hotel means you’re in for luxurious five-star dining experiences too.

At Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée, there’s one particular gourmet restaurant that stands out: Le 3e Restaurant Terrace, led by renowned Chef Cyril Cheype who packs the menu with bright and colourful Mediterranean cuisine always made from deliciously fresh seasonal produce.

Best of all, you can dine on Chef Cheype’s culinary wonders as a private three-course banquet in one of the hotel’s many elegant private spaces.

Perfect for birthdays, weddings, or corporate events, the various rooms on offer include the grand and spacious Salon Azur or the Bossa Nova, a smaller, cosier room perfect for more intimate gatherings.

Dine glamorously at Grand-Hotel Du Cap-Ferrat, a Four Seasons Hotel

Last on our list of private dining experiences is the wide selection of sophisticated dining rooms at Grand-Hotel Du Cap-Ferrat, a Four Seasons Hotel – all of which can be hired out for a special afternoon or evening of private dinner parties. 

The best spaces include La Véranda, a chic but casual bistro-style restaurant with stylish interior decor and a luxury terrace overlooking unbeatable sea views – or Salon Ferrat, the hotel’s largest indoor space filled with plenty of natural light, which is ideal for formal banquets or cocktail receptions.

Perhaps most special though, is the outside terrace of Club Dauphin, a poolside space perfect for larger alfresco dinners for private parties and celebrations. 

The resort is known for its food excellence too – so trust the food itself will be at a high-standard, especially in the Michelin star Le Cap specialising in traditional gastronomic cuisine. You’re in Côte d'Azur after all - it'd be rude not to sample the local French delicacies!

And if you want even more quiet, it's rated a top private hotel in Côte d'Azur too.
