Very good food

Dined here for dinner in February 2015. Last dined here in 2013. If anything the food was better. Great atmosphere and excellent service. We dined here on two evenings.

Along the very narrow and prestigious street in the old town of Nice, there is a tiny almost-to-be-missed gem of a restaurant...and, it glistens. The place has excellent food and outstanding personal service that screams "welcome, enjoy, and please come back". The owner, who looks like he just passed his age restriction for a driver's license is deceptively charming, knowledgeable,... More

This restaurant us tiny but quite amazing. There are lots if mirrors which makes it seem so much bigger. You catch glimpses of yourself at many angles. The black and red theme with the pretty lights gave it a great atmosphere. The food was also very good.

We usually eat at the Tire Bouchon at least once during our annual Christmas trip to Nice. And I have to say, the food is always very good - especially for the Old Town, which can be a bit of a tourist trap. I had the 3 course set menu and my wife went for a main course and had... More

The photos on the restaurant's website don't indicate how cramped it is inside. We are not big people but with the unsmiling waitress whizzing up and down the small passage between tables we had to keep our elbows in. The tables for 2 are really small and the over-sized plates did not help. Odd shaped plates don't improve the taste... More

Let me tell you something about Le Tire Buchon. Go with reservations because unless you have them you're not getting in. We saw at least eight people turned away because the place was packed, which alone should tell you how good it is. The food here was wonderfully prepared and everything tasted amazing. We had the three course Chefs Menu... More

Four of us booked a table here as this restaurant had been recommended to us. While the general atmosphere was nice and cozy when we arrived, the service was cold and unwelcoming. We ordered a nice bottle of St. Emillion from the wine list which was very nice. Later on we ordered a bottle of Margaux 2008 from the list... More

This cozy restaurant is located on a side street a short walk from the large pedestrian market street. We dined here on a Monday night, when many restaurants are closed, and it was nearly full. Food and service were excellent. We just ordered mains, and wine, and found the portions reasonably sized and priced.

Great service in a location with so much choice. Atmosphere perfect for a meal for two. Price reasonable for what you get. Goo selection in fixed price menu.
