The atmosphere in the restaurant is amazing, and the food is very good too. A memorable family meal. I would definitely recommend the lamb and polenta - yummy! Friendly service and some great choices on the menu. Thank you.

Recommended by our hotel maitre d' we chose to sit in the main area rather than the candle lit 'romantic room'. We just had a main and bottle of red wine. Fillet steak and grande gambas cooked to perfection, wine 27€ and reasonable value. Overall you could spend a lot in here but also easy to have a good value,... More

We passed this little restaurant one evening and decided it looked lovely for our anniversary dinner. We organised for the Saturday night and sat down to eat at about 7.30. Wines were quite expensive considering the selection but the menu looked good. We ordered Fois gras as a starter and it was presented nicely although it wasn't as smooth &... More

This restaurant is in the old part of Nice. When we turned up on a Sunday evening, we were asked if we had reserved a table, which we hadn't. I took this as a good sign as it indicated popularity. The maitre d took us round the back of the restaurant to another room. Here we enjoyed a really lovely... More

The le Tire Bouchon is a nice small place with 2 different wings/entraces. The food was really good, service was OK, but not to enthusiastic (my wife speaks French). Good wines, but rather on the really expensive side (Whites around 40€). In a nutshell not bad, but no reason to go back again

We were planning an other place but went by this restaurant and it looked so nice we stayed. We sat outside. The charming waitress was very patient and nice. We changed a lot in our main but it was not a problem, very nice. We had gambas to start, one for two, and then a grillad Seabass with sallad. Perfect!

Really enjoyed it here. Sometimes someone doing something classic and doing it well is what you need - this place has it in spades. It was some time ago I went and only have got around to doing a review but thought I'd share it anyway.

We absolutely loved this place, scallops were sweet and tender, creme brûlée was sweet with a hint of fresh mint. Superb, I'd eat there again hands down.

We unfortunately dined here last night. With only 3 x options for main course left available ( 1 x of which was pasta) this was poor value. Portions are small, the " potatoe gratin" was swimming in liquid cream. If you like mushroom soup, choose the "scallops .... in a mushroom sauce" ........... we dined outside, the heater was broken... More

Really enjoyed our meal at Le Tire Bouchon. The decor is quirky but cosy and although we got there quite early, the place soon filled up. The food was unusual but I really enjoyed all three courses. Try the Smoked Salmon Creme Brûlée, it was wonderful!
