This place is simple - cheese, escargot, bread, and excellent wine selections! Not too much you can get wrong here. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful, the wine selection is great, and their recommendations are excellent. Let's get one thing straight - this is not a restaurant, its a wine bar, a great one at that! Highly recommend it... More

Stumbled across this fantastic little place on our last night in Nice and it was the discovery of our holiday. The owner recommended the wine and it was delicious, she brought out some complimentary samples of cheese and was very knowledgeable about both the cheese and wine. Very authentic south of France bistrot.

We booked a table for 4 for last Friday night at 8. When I phoned a week before, they were pleasant and took my reservation. When we arrived at 8 pm the shutters were down, just a few empty bottles of wine in the entrance, clearly not open. A waitress from the restaurant opposite approached us to say that this... More

Anyone who loves good wine, tasting nice cheese and who wants to have a good insight of how the old town of nice (should)looks like, the Bistrot de la vieille is definitely the place to go! Nested in the narrow streets of the 'vieux' the decoration will also catch yr eye and if you don't know which wine to drink,... More

I'm not a wine drinking but wanted to try something a bit different, the guys serving chose and wine for me and it was very nice. My husband who does drink wine occasionally enjoyed a glass of red which turned out to be more... More

We went to Bistrot de la Vieille on a Saturday evening in September for drinks and possibly a light meal, based on the very high Trip Advisor rating. The bistrot was a bit difficult to find, located in a small, quiet alley in Old Town. For us, the outdoor seating was awkward and uncomfortable. The host was accommodating and permitted... More

Went to this place Sep 26th 2014 based on Trip Advisor recommendations -BIG MISTAKE. I know the old town is a tourist trap, but the service level at this place was a new low to me. As a regular traveller I, for the first time in my life, had to ask to see the owner/chef to tell about my experience... More

I dined here with my wife. We had a glass of wine each and shared a charcuterie plate. Service was warm and attentive. There was no menu or wine list but instead the staff asked us what we'd like and brought us huge portions of top quality charcuterie and fromage. The wine was great and generously poured. The staff had... More

I was traveling solo to Nice and was looking for a place with good food, wine and a lively atmosphere . Thanks to other trip advisors reviews, I found Le Bistrot De La Ville! The service was superb.
