Had lunch at Bistrot Viviers (new name) with a friend who claimed this as her favorite place for lunch. Service was friendly and efficient. Wonderful specials and regulars. We had the 3 course lunch with a glass of wine each for under 75€ total. Well worth it and the fresh seafood was perfectly prepared. Definitely seafood is their specialty but... More

All was delicious and came with wonderful side dishes. Great French wine list and being unsure asked for assistance and had an excellent Provence wine recommended. We had ordered souffle for desert at start of... More

Beautiful in every way. Simple interiors - very French brasserie style - staff extremely polite and clearly they enjoy their work. Our waiter (Italian) was fantastic. Above all the food was wonderful- simple but packed with flavour, elegantly presented and exceeded all expectations. My fish soup with rouille reminded me of how delicious French food is at its best. This... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Nice. The food is always good, the service staff friendly (and busy!) and the formule déjeuner is usually a very good deal. I always mean to reserve a table, but never do. Big mistake! Usually - but not always - they manage to squeeze us in, but obviously not at the best... More

Seated immediately, served quickly and wait staff was helpful, funny and all was well paced. We were never rushed, had time between courses to let food settle a little. Was our 2nd visit there and will go back on our next trip in Feb.

We just finished lunch at Le Bistrot des Viviers, which was recommended by our hotel's concierge as having typical Mediterranean fare in a quiet setting frequented by locals. It was superb! Our server, Aurelia, was very accommodating and helpful in making menu selections. My husband had the artichoke salad, which featured shaved artichokes and truffle on a bed of arugula... More
