MA Nolan's Is a very large pub in the Old Town area, it has many Tv screens up showing all the football/sports channels and is busy at all times of the day and night. We went for a drink the first time we visited and just looked at the menu which is large and serving typical pub type food. As... More

Ordered two chicken Caesar wraps which had more lettuce in them than chicken or bacon...the fries were oven chips not properly cooked and it wasn't overly warm :( place is more of a pub than somewhere to eat go elsewhere I'm afraid

It's not haut cuisine, but if you are looking for decent pub grub, you could do worse than Ma Nolan's. I've been there a few times to watch Rugby (the Lions in Australia, Hooray!) and football ( Ireland at the Euros ... what a bummer!) but this was the first time I ate dinner. Decent food, well prepared

After having visited the Ma Nolans at Nice port yesterday and had a lovely experience; we decided to try the one in the old town tonight!! (We both actually ordered the same dish - goats cheese salad) the waitress only brought one despite the fact that we ordered two! When my salad finally arrived I was told that there was... More

Apologies for the delay in posting this. Our visit was in early August. Where do we begin. Cycle in France for many years and always seek out an Irish bar for the Guinness. More times than not they are quasi-Irish bars and the Guinness is barely drinkable (De Danú in Toulouse being an obvious exception.) Stayed in Nice for 3... More

If it wasn't for the photograph, I would be totally convinced that previous reviewers were talking about a completely different venue to the one that we visited. After a leisurely stroll around Vieux Nice, we decided on a rather late lunchtime pit stop for refreshments. All the restaurants were absolutely heaving around the market area, until we stumbled on Ma... More

As it says in the title, a typical Irish bar. The staff are extremely friendly and the choice of drinks means you aren't far from home.

I always thought it was just a nice pub so I never ate there. One evening, friends took me there and since then I always had dinner at Ma Nolan's. To me, their Nicoise Salad is one of the best in Nice, prices are good (23-30 euros for the big salad + "smaller" burgers that really fill you up +... More
