Old World Charm in Downtown Whitby

Nice Bistro is a true "experience". There is nothing "fast-food" about it. The portions are smaller but cooked and served with such respect for the food and the customer that you don't notice it. The hosts, a man and wife team, are warm and engaging and there is never any rush. The daily menu... read more

This is real French dining. Do not walk in there expecting American Sized portions and slingshot service. Go there expecting being able to order appetizers, main dish, cheese plate AND desert, and leave with a full tummy but no need for buffet pants. The food is made from scratch, and is incredible. I have been going to Nice Bistro for... More

This is a great, friendly little restaurant in downtown Whitby. The couple that own/operate the restaurant are very warm, engaging folks. The food is always tasty and the selection is quite good (pasta, salads, french standards, etc.) Really quaint spot - real gem in Whitby's downtown.

I have been to Nice Bistro for both dinner and lunch. You can not get a warmer welcome or better service. The dishes are delicious and the prices are reasonable. Since I can't afford the trip to France, Nice Bistro is the next best option (and a perfect place to practise your high school French).

as soon as you walk in you are warmly greeted and feel right at home! I felt like I was in a small restaurant in Quebec City ( complete with a french speaking waitress). The atmosphere was great with the daily specials written on a chalk board and the bi- lingual menu offering a mouth watering selection. A local craft... More

We went there for my daughter's graduation. The platter of "charcuterie" was huge and with a wide variety of meat. Dinner was excellent and everyone enjoyed their meal. They have a small choice of French beer and they have one beer from a micro-brewery in Peterborough. Amazing place. It is not often that you can be serve in French in... More

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 have a better meal in... 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.
