This is the type of restaurant where they make you feel welcome as soon as you walk in the door. Friendly smiles, top notch service and food that is better than you can imagine. I’ve been here on multiple occasions and tried a few things...all the menu - not one has disappointed. It’s hard to pick a favourite thing about this place, but if I had to it would be the dessert and a perfectly made cappuccino by Phillip. If you are deciding a place to eat in Whitby THIS is the spot!More

My wife and I went to Nice Bistro today for lunch. We haven't been to a restaurant in the longest time due to Covid 19....so this was a truly an enjoyable day out. Almost felt like a mini vacation in the south of France. I...especially enjoyed the pate au cognac.The entire meal was fantastic and the service was great. This was our third time there and will definitely go back. Never disappointed.More

Our first visit to this fabulous restaurant. The food was flavourful, generous portions and presented well. The service impeccible and felt like dinner around the family table. We had the fixed prix. Prices reasonable. Good laughs and good food! Love the ambience as well! A...hidden gem in downtown Whitby. Photos below. Of course I begin with dessert-pot du chocolat!More

Nice bistro in downtown Whitby. The food is not all totally french since they serve caesar salad! But some dishes are classic like steak au poivre and mussels.

We had the opportunity to have dinner on Nice-Bistro's sidewalk patio. A very unique dining experience. The staff ensured we were comfortable and provided us some extra shade on a warm day. The food was excellent like the service as always. The restaurant scene is...crowded with similar styles but Nice-Bistro offers top notch option for those seeking outstanding food and service.More

Phoned to work through the Bistro's pandemic menu offerings for this week with Manon's charming & knowledgeable help. Settled, for 3 people, on one quiche - SUPERB, one crepe - very good, and the jambalaya - good: provided four meals! Interesting selection of wines secured...by the Bistro. Chose a Cotes de Gascogne Sec which "knocked the quiche out of the park"! As she has done since 1993 Manon provided super service: she had the meals hot for pick up and helped us prepare for picnic style. Lifted our spirits during these challenging times.More

One of our favorite places to go out for dinner. A family owned and run Bistro that from the moment you walk in the door, you feel like you've been transported to France! Amazing relaxed atmosphere with sublime foods! Menu changes regularly to keep seasonal...specials that will keep you coming back for more. Theme nights are also planned with live Jazz music, or theater that is interactive and personal. Definitely recommend Nice Bistro to anyone who loves good food!More

Picked up the prepared Beef Bougingnon with side of vegetables - sous vide for two. Requested a paired bottle of red wine and they gave us some nice French rolls. 15 minutes at home and all was ready to go. It was delicious and easy.....Highly recommend to all. Check it out on Facebook.More

On my second visit to Nice, I realized my first visit was not by chance. We received a warm and personal welcome when we entered. After seating us and we received menus, our candle was lit and our drink order was taken. The restaurant has...a very French feeling to it; from the floors to the bistro tables. The walls are decorated with art from a local artist, which can be purchased. Manon made sure we were always content with our food, drinks and service. Our food was exceptional-from the pate fois gras with crusty French bread, to our main course of a delicious pasta with cream sauce, chicken and mushrooms, to our dessert. Service was exemplary, friendly and knowledgeable. Can’t wait to go back.More
