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 version was offered. Neither did we ask for one, since we had printed out the menu in advance from the web.
As the kitchen´s greeting we were offered olives and two types of sandwich-like nibbles, which were quite nice. As actual starters we had artichokes salad and scallops carpaccio. Both were OK - no complaints, but not unforgettable. As the main course we enjoyed sea bream cooked in sea salt crust. The fish itself did not have very much taste, but the accompanying sauce had quite a strong taste. As a dessert I had flambéed crêpes with Grand Marnier. The crepes were OK, but to my disappointment they were not topped with whipped cream or ice-cream. My wife´s choice was Black Forest cake, which was quite delicious
The wine list was extensive, so we just followed the waitress´s recommendation, which turned out to be a good choice for our courses.
