Good but expencive

Food was good but not great. You expect more for that high price. Good wine list. Waiters where too busy to give best service. Some of those looked very stressed

We came for dinner as a group of 25 for a wedding dinner and were very happy with the service we received. The food came from a set menu which was tasty and filling. Will be back on our next trip to Nice

Les Viviers was recommended by our concierge as having the best bouillabaisse in Nice. We were disappointed to say the least. The fish was rubbery and not very appealing. The skin on the fish was hard to remove. I have had many other bouillabaisse in the south of France and this was by far the worst. The staff was friendly... More

Jacques Rolancy used to work at London Hilton's Windows restaurant but moved back to France to open his own establishment several years ago. We've tried his upmarket restaurant before (excellent) so thought we would give his adjacent Bistro a go. The food comes from the same kitchen so the quality is assured and the Bistro staff create a relaxed and... More

After first finding their sister restaurant next door "Rolancy", we discovered that the Viviers Bistro,also theirs was the same fine food but more casual atmosphere. The meal we had at "Rolancy" was one of the best we ever had in France... and Les Viviers has the same chefs and kitchen. HIGHLY recommended...both!

We liked everything there. The food was perfect, we have enjoyed it for several day. We took "plat du jour" for lunch. Delicious, sophisticated, everyday different. Haute-cuisine, the prices are very reasonable. Locals come and eat there.

We visit whenever in Nice. Very quiet as mid week but food and service up to usual high standard. I am amazed that it is not included in the top ten of Nice's many restaurants. Having pre-booked on line we were eligible for a 20% price discount and were impressed that his was automatically deducted from the bill without having... More

We dined outside and had a truly memorable meal. The fresh fish was unsurpassed, particularly the turbot, and the service was excellent and helpful.

We had four wonderful dinners at Les Viviers. We have travelled to France many times and never encountered such an excellent combination of excellent food, excellent service and at a reasonable cost. The restaurant is mentioned in the Michelin Guide 2015. If we ever return to Nice we will certainly return to Les Viviers.
