Looked good from the outside but more like fine dining than a bistrot in our opinion. Service and ambience was great but sigh, not the food. Chef owner was in the dining room and we tried to be friendly but he was arrogant. We had artichoke salad and it might have had a little truffle oil. Wish it said so... More

We knew it would be good, but the level of dining and friendliness surprised us. Dining Aioli, and a plate of sardines etc. with rose wine was a treat. We wanted to have their bouillabaisse as well. Visited during lunch time and the big portion of all possible was a treat. The chef was very friendly and I asked him... More

Wonderful bistrot. Very accommodating with superb ford and service. Blackboard menu with many choices. Duck and pork pate is to die for and very large portion. Wine list is excellent.

3 of us walked in on a saturday night. The restaurant was busy but we got a place to sit quickly. The bistro had a rich and authentic look to it. An english menu helped and the kind waitress spoke some english too. I ordered the meilleur (perhaps wrong spelling) and it was perfectly made. Cooked to perfection and served... More

Great place. They do have menu in English as well. Grilled fish John Dory was excellent (served for two). Starter salad with artichoke worth trying. Desserts ... be careful, they are plentiful. At least after lighter fish you might want to settle for something else than chocolate cake or creme brulee. Small bistro, might require table reservation, we were lucky... More

I selected this place because by mistake I thought I saw they offered kids menu in the internet (it was in fact Le Rolancy's - a fancy looking restaurant just besides)... What a mistake!!! My 4 year old daughter ended up hungry and crying out loud, not having any single dish suitable for kids... although our kid is quite picky... More

We visited Les Viviers Bistro on a Saturday evening. Before nine o´clock, practically all tables were occupied, so reservation is essential. The tables are pretty close to each other - meaning that there is not much privacy available. The menu in French was presented on a roughly 50 cm x 80 cm black board placed on the table. No English... More

We had lunch there on a Friday in April. The food and wine were of a very high standard; the service was welcoming and efficient; all in all the best restaurant experience of our week in Nice. This bistro style restaurant is an offshoot of the more upmarket place next door. The chef makes no secret of this and came... More

Les Viviers in tucked away on a small side street but worth the effort to find it. We have eaten both lunch and dinner there, lunch menu being similar but less expensive. The food is excellent and presented beautifully. The seating is tight, but there was not a lot of noise and conversation was easy. The wine list is excellent.... More

Old style restaurant serving excellent food. They were very busy at lunchtime and the service though good was a touch slow. Every thing else was very good. Well worth a visit when you are in Nice.
