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.

Enjoyed an excellent meal here (dinner for 4). The food was great, considering how busy they were (full) the service was very good and the price was reasonable. Highly recommended and just off the main tourist beats in Nice.

It is worth the effort to track down this restaurant, and don't worry if the main restaurant is fully booked, the Bistrot is more fun. Great food, comfortable surroundings and a friendly atmosphere. The menu is all on blackboards, brought to your table, but the food seemed to be much the same as next door and of great quality. Everything... More

Sympathetic and cosy interior. A very good service combined with delicious dishes. I recommend the risotto with scallops. An address that is one of the best in Nice at an affordable price.
