Cosy ambience, lovely food

A favourite of ours for some years now, this place has a great atmosphere and very nice food. It's one of those places where you go intending to just have a main course but always give in to their amazing set menus and end up having three courses!

Very impressed with this restaurant. Popped up a little street and stumbled across it; drawn in by the lamps! The food was lovely and also very well presented. Service good too. The selection of mini desserts and espresso was my personal favourite course!

Few moments later and again the same waitress asked if we was ready. If I'd want fast food I'd have gone macdonalds. asked for 10 min. Placed my order had the fillet beef. Not so... More

We dined at Le Tire Bouchon on a Saturday evening. We were greeted by two very friendly waitresses. Our main course of lamb was quite average and nothing special however we then ordered a dessert which was absolutely yummy! I had the chocolate dessert which was delicious and my husband had the mini assortment of desserts which he really enjoyed.... More

Stayed in Nice for a few nights with friends. Had been told there were some good deals to be had in the restaurants along the flower market; however, when we walked through and looked at menus, we were harassed by waiters who were rather over-zealous in trying to get our custom. The menus weren't that interesting in most cases and... More

Finding a good restaurant in the old town of Nice is kind-of a challenge - all being tourists traps ... So we found in Le Tire Bouchon a great place, with home cooked produce from the region ...

Fantastic little restaurant down a side alley. We came across it by chance so had no major expectations but the food was fantastic from start to finish. We had starters, mains, and deserts each - all incredibly tasty and well presented (the only single flaw was the potatoes on the lamb dish were over-cooked and watery). Would highly recommend a...

I last reviewed Le Tire a few years ago, when it was well worth a visit. Since then it went through a change of ownership and became somewhere no sensible person would go to. However, it has now had another change of ownership and deserves its rehabilitation. If I could give a 4.5 as an overall rating, I would. There... More

This restaurant is situated in one of the small streets in the old town. We had dinner outside, and took the 3 course menu, which was very good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A good dining experience in the old town.

So glad that we found this place! What a welcome change from the millions of brasseries we've been frequenting. Trust me, there is no comparison!!! The food in this restaurant was exquisite; the ambiance was fabulous and the service was the best we've had in France. We cannot speak highly enough of Le Tire bouchon. Thank you for the wonderful...
