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.

I stayed round the corner from this restaurant for 6 nights last month. I was so taken with it on my first visit that I returned 2 more times for dinner. 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

We visit either Bistro Viviers or its sister Rolancy ...every time we are in Nice....which is frequent. Everything on the menu is simply the finest quality made to the highest standard. Service is great and the owner/chef Rolancy is visible and friendly. PERFECT.
