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.

We were recommended to Le Bistrot des Viviers by the concierge at Le Negresco. The waitress recommended the special evening menu, and it was absolutely first class. The service, food and drinks were exceptional

Les Viviers is made up of 2 dining experiences one is a bistro and the other, Rolancy's, fine dining restaurant. My husband and I celebrated my 50th birthday with a superb meal in Rolancy's, recommended by our hotel. The surroundings are relaxed, contemporary, elegant and light with a great ambience complete with table cloths - refreshing! Very professional, personal service.... More

The full name of the restaurant is Le Bistrot des Viviers, which is in Rue Alphonse just N of Blvd V Hugo. This was a hotel recommendation. I was expecting more of a bistro from the name, but it is really a proper restaurant. I had an excellent piece of cod - beautifully cooked, a glass of house white wine... More
