Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

"Maquis" in French was the name of the wartime underground resistance. This restaurant certainly doesn't need much resistance to revisit. Arriving near to closing time, we asked if the restaurant had a table for two. We were told as long as made an instant decision...from the menu, we could be accommodated. It became apparent from the outset that we were an incumbrance rather than valued patrons. Sensing the irritation of the waiter taking our order, my partner asked if a dish was vegetarian - she was told curtly, "yes, yes". We duly ordered food and a couple of drinks. The drinks arrived first, followed by the two dishes. To our horror, my partner's dish was covered in a layer of "mortadella". When she called over the waiter to explain she was vegetarian and couldn't eat it, the owner/manager was summoned. She pointed out the error and told him she had asked initially when ordering if the dish was vegetarian. He glared at her and said regardless, it had stated on the menu that it included "mortadella". When she explained that she didn't realise that this apparently was type of salami, he just shrugged. We asked if it could be changed and he replied in no uncertain terms, "No!" At this point, I suggested that we pay for the drinks and leave. Instead, to our amazement, he screamed at us to just go and get out of his restaurant. Embarrassed, we started to walk down the road past the other diners when he came flying down the road followed by another waiter and shouted at me to pay the whole bill. I said we hadn't eaten any food, but he began ranting in a crazed manner. He then rang the police, but we have no idea why. My partner was really frightened and I told her to walk away as I thought the manager and waiter were going to physically attack us, unfortunately taking my phone and wallet with her. They actually held me "hostage" until my partner returned looking for me and I had no option but to pay the full amount of the bill. We tried reporting the incident to the gendarmes, but they didn't seem interested. Without doubt, this was THE worst restaurant experience I have ever encountered in all my years of travel and dining. Luckily there are so many great restaurants in Nice, it won't be difficult to avoid Le Maquis.More

We stumbled upon this restaurant and stopped for lunch. It is situated down a narrow street in the old town. It got quite busy with locals too which is always a good sign. We ate off the menu of the day which was excellent value...and very tasty. Service was very good and staff very friendly. We enjoyed our meal so much we went back the next day and ate from the Al a Carte menu. Fish Soup was delicious as was the Fillet of Beef. No room for dessert unfortunately. Would definitely suggest that if you wanted to eat here at lunch you get here before 1pm as it gets busy and they do have to turn people away.More

Lovely place. We were a ‘walk-up’ booking (no reservation). Nice atmosphere. We had the prawn and artichoke starter, beef and duck mains and the blackberry crumble, with coffees. I had a 50cl wine bottle, but would have preferred wine by the glass. Overall a lovely...experience.More

This was a terrible experience which ruined an otherwise wonderful trip to Nice. As a vegetarian I am extremely cautious about ordering food whilst on holiday and asked if the dish I was ordering was vegetarian, I was told it was. However when my food...arrived I was horrified to see it was covered in ham and immediately alerted the waiter to ask if the food could be changed and was simply told no. The owner appeared and shouted at me in an aggressive manor. He seemed to be very hostile so my fiancé offered to pay for the drinks and he said no just go. He then chased after us and called the police. My fiancé was held hostage until he paid. Please avoid as there are so many nice restaurants.More

We stumbled across this restaurant while in Nice and stopped for dinner due to the streetside location. All the food was very nice and portions generous, but it just lacked that little bit of quality compared to other restaurants. Service was good and on the...whole a nice meal out.More

Picked this restaurant after reading the reviews online, checking out the menu and the restaurant’s proximity to our accommodation. Easy to book online which I did a couple of days ahead. We would not have got a table otherwise as it was extremely busy. Efficient,...friendly and professional staff, generous portions which were well presented and the fixed price menu is particularly good value. Would definitely recommend.More

I'm always a little suspicious of places in highly touristed areas, but this is a place that removes some of my negative experiences in those areas. Food here is taken very seriously and is utterly excellent. I had a wonderful braised lamb shank, which was...beautifully done, and my wife and daughter both had a beautiful braised pork belly. The fat was lovingly rendered out, and delicious. Excellent service, and highly recommended.More

We had a delicious meal at this restaurant, tucked away on a small street in the old city of Nice. Their website was telling us that there were no tables available, but we chanced it, arriving as soon as they opened, and lucked out. (Clearly...popular, people were soon being turned away.) This street is so narrow that if you mind passers by close to your table, you should not consider dining here. For me, passers by are entertainment. On the other hand, a nearby table of boisterous guys, all smoking, did result in our forgoing dessert, which is a pity, because based on what we had already eaten, I'm sure dessert would have been terrific too.More
