Shocking service. Sat for nearly 20 mins before being served. When served it was lukewarm greasy food given to us by waitress who was moody to say the least! Avoid.

After ordering, receiving our drinks 20 minutes later, and sitting there for more than 45 minutes, watching people all around us who came in after us order and receive their meals, we flagged down a waitress who kept looking at us. We asked her, "What happened to our orders?" In a snippy tone we were told that she was not... More

Not the first time in this restaurant. Higher you pay for your steak better it is. Good choice of side dishes. The funny thing on the menu will be the references to the entree, main dish and dessert if the day... they are permanent on the menu! It is a food chaîne so don't expect much. How ever, iur waitress... More

Steak arrived after a long wait. Steak was so cold and tough I could not cut it with the knife. Sent it back, nicely. Came back still cold. Beans were overlooked and soggy. Tea was tepid. Service was tepid. In short, that's an hour and a half in Nice I'd like back. Go anyplace else. In short, this was TERRIBLE!!

We were shopping in Nice and decided to look for somewhere for lunch. We checked out several restaurants and they were either noisy, packed or expensive. We came across Hippopotamus quite by accident and decided to give it a try. Received a pleasant welcome and were shown to a shady table from where we could watch the World go By... More

Had to wait long even though there weren't so many clients. Also food wasn't even worth of waiting, fries did taste floury.

We stopped for lunch. Drinks and food came quick, but my cæsar salad had a strange taste- very bitter. The burger was good, and very ok prices.
