The food was great, but the service was not: we waited half an hour before someone took our order, then another half an hour for the wine and yet another half an hour for our starters and never got any bread rolls. There were only two waiters serving the entire restaurant, which clearly was not enough. In addition, they had... More

The concierge at the Boscolo sent us here; it's around the corner from the hotel. There are two restaurants with the same owner next door to each other; the menus have a lot of crossover, but this is the casual side and the other is the more formal setting. It features seafood, with only a couple of beef dishes and... More

We stayed in a hotel nearby, and had dinner in this restaurant on a rainy evening. The food and service is excellent, and the prices not higher than in the old city. Seafood lovers should not miss this place

The restaurant is about 10 minutes walk from the waterfront but it is well worth the walk. The servers were friendly and attentive. The food was reasonably priced. (See attached menu board) Something you don't see everyday is they used a cloche to present the food. A trip back in the memory lane to the 1960's! If you want a... More

We visited Le Bistrot des Viviers twice. First experience: We had the set lunch menu (19,50 € for two courses and 23,50 € for three courses). For the starter, we had a mango carpaccio with rucola and raspberry. Fairly mindless; too sweet and the dressing was quite unimaginative, the dish was not balanced. The mains (a choice between meat or... More

We visited Le Bistrot des Viviers on our last night in Nice. The steaks with bernaise sauce were delicious. The potatoes au gratin were FABULOUS! The server was over busy so the chef/owner helped with service. When we mentioned how much we loved the potatoes he went away and came back with a hand written recipe! Really enjoyed this restaurant.

Equally good value on teh a la carte menu as on the set menu, I had beautiful risotto, turbot, beef, lamb and more. I would love to be back... More

My husband, friend and I went to Le Bistrot des Viviers while staying in Nice. I'm not sure if the average rating is a little harsh but I found the food a bit expensive for what it was. I had fish and chips which were fine, the fish was cut into "chips" and served with a tartare sauce. My husband... More

Monday night, the place was jam packed and buzzing. Great produce and great cooking. Nothing to not like. Everything to like.
