Finally ate there and glad I did

I've passed by this place 3 times a week for the past five years and finally decided to try it. You can the cosy atmosphere from the outside, but it's all the more pleasant when you enter.

Food quality is high, nothing to say. The location is amazing and the restaurant is very beautiful. But portions are miserable! If after a complete menu and a lot of bread to fill my stomach one is still hungry there should be a problem (and that problem is not my stomach). Wine is incredibly overpriced! Price: 4 "Menu du chef"... More

I went there solo on a recommendation by a local. Great food nicely presented, all fresh, and with attentive service to match. I wish I could have tried it more than once. Don't even hesitate and give this place a try. You'll be rewarded with excellent food at good price. Expect to pay €30 per person for 2 courses.

We held our team dinner at this restaurant and found the setting, food and service excellent. The restaurant was very flexible to our needs, they have an excellent group set menu which includes wine and a choice of starters, mains and desserts. We had the whole restaurant booked for ourselves so we were able to make lots of noise and... More

Visited here for the first time in years, having failed to get in to a number of other local establishments. Pleasant interior and excellent service are positives. My husband enjoyed his starter of seafood cassoulet, and his main of scallops - the special of the day. I was not so lucky - the smoked salmon crime brûlée which was my... More

We had lunch here after a long walk around Nice. It was a good choice and had excellent value set lunch options. The food and service were very good.

Wandering through the old town of Nice we passed this very romantic restaurant and could not resist to go in. The interior is of a typical French bistro. The menu has something for everybody and the taste is great. We had the house wine which was very good for a decent price. The only problem was that it was so... More

We went to the Tire Boucjon on our last night in NIce. My wife chose it. We got at the restaurant about five minutes early. We were marched out of the restaurant, around the corner, to another part of the restaurant. Not a good start. The waiter seemed quite indifferent. As it was our last night we pushed the boat...

We travel to Nice every couple of years and discovered this little place by chance on our last visit, so we were keen to visit again on our recent trip and were not disappointed - indeed we were pleasantly surprised to find that it was cheaper than last time, with the set menu at €31.90 now available at any time...
