Excellent French food served in a warm, friendly restaurant.

My family and I (and many guests) have dined at the Nice Bistro for close to 20 years and I always believed Bernard and Manon served outstanding food in a most hospitable room. This belief was confirmed again this year after we returned from two weeks in Provence and the French Riveira. We did not... read more

This family run bistro always delights. Guests are always warmly greeted and the cozy atmosphere sets the tone for a wonderful dining experience. The chalkboard promotes fresh seasonal dishes which are expertly prepared by the owne/chef, Bernard. There's an interesting selection of wines available to enhance your selection as well. Go and enjoy...salut!

We went for a lunch with friends and enjoyed every moment we spent there. The food was delicious, the place is charming, and the service was excellent. Family-run business, very nice décor with pictures and photos from local artists.And really reasonable prices. Loved the place, totally worth my hour long drive from another city. Will be happy to come back.

We keep coming back to this place every now and then. The meal is absolutely fantastic if you are a fan of French cuisine. The service is extremely friendly and restaurant has very authentic atmosphere. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

Knowing nothing about where to have lunch in Whitby, we stumbled upon Nice Bistro and were glad we did. This family-run restaurant is outstanding. The proprietress is friendly and charming and her husband the chef is talented and quite engaging too. I love a restaurant where they tell you what they have fresh and how you can have it prepared,... More

It's a little bit of Paris in Whitby. A perfect little bistro with great food. Wonderful escargot, good main courses, excellent coffee. Make reservations; the place fills up fast.

I have never lunched here. It was surprisingly good. The Soup and "Croque Monsieur" was excellent. (Sorry my French is a bit rusty)... Anyway, our soup was a fragrant lentil soup, no dairy and meatless. Easy to go down on a very cold day. The owners were there and one of their sons... They were warm and inviting... The Croque...

Nice Bistro was the restaurant I chose to take my girlfriend on St. Valentine's Day. I was worried that our reservation would not hold up on such a busy night but we were seated after only a 20 minute wait (10 minutes after our reservation time). The wine was great and even though the beer selection was limited, there was... More

I have been wanting to come here since I moved to Durham. Finally got the chance and I wasn't disappointed. Brought an agent here for lunch on a Wednesday. Got there around noon and it was pretty quiet. This place is run by a family and I believe the wife is the hostess and server and the husband is the... More
