“Classic French food in out-of-the way location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

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. The prices are not inexpensive, but not out of line for the quality. Be sure to reserve in advance. It is not huge, and fills quickly.

“Great Meal great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

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.

“Best Quality experience in Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Going to Les Viviers is like going back in time and hanging on to tradition.
On one side of the kitchen there is the Bistrot and on the other is the more formal restaurant, but the cuisine comes from the same place and is this wonderful food!
I love fish and when I go to Viviers I know that any fish I have is going to be the freshest and most tasty; I do not look for creativity when the food speaks for itself.
Jacques Rolancy is both chef and owner of these two restaurants and runs a very tight ship as this place is full up every time we have been there; clearly the success of the food he prepares is very well-known to the locals.
Maybe not the most creative but it is a place I could go back to night after night!

Had two meals here with friends, very good french style food. Medium prices and good service and friendly staff, made our meals rememberable.
