“Good night had by all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

We chose this restaurant for the last evening meal of our holiday in Nice and it didn't disappoint. We'd read the reviews and it was exactly as expected. We were in at around 7.30pm on a Friday night and the pub was busy but we were seated straight away. The food is just standard British / Irish fayre but it was good to be on safer ground after suffering a very mixed bag of restaurants on this trip. The staff were friendly and attentive. Very pleasant and if it wasn't the last night of our holiday we'd certainly be going back.

Thady - I want to express how much we enjoyed our visit to Ma Nolan's last week when we went to Nice for a weeks holidays my husband and I. Firstly the reason we went to Ma Nolans was to see the All Ireland Hurling final on the TV between Galway and Kilkenny - what a day we spent their, friendly, best of service, good food and craic, it was home away from home, greater than expectation, Ten out of ten eleven if I could

“Tourist Scam”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Went on a busy afternoon, most tables were obviously tourists. Ordered cheese nachos where the fat was sitting in the bowel. Then a steak sandwich which had been sitting under the hot window for too long as was rock hard and dry which was served with plain tortilla chips obviously FF were too expensive. The service was ok but would not recommend to anyone, poor poor quality.

“Love the gravy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012 via Local Picks

My husband and I love this place. We like it more as a restaurant than a pub, though. We come more for the foods, not the drinks, although they have plenty of beers to choose. They have this amazing gravy served with chips, which we failed a thousand times to re-create it at home, their gravy is just different! And if you come for the "pub", come later, not too early, as it smells like onion inside during the dinner time. It has nice atmosphere also for watching the games.
