I'm surprised at some of the recent negative reviews. We have always been treated with genuine respect and hospitality here. The soupe de poisson is like an old friend. The fish and meat dishes are prepared with great skill, and you can have pretty much...More

We traveled with our five month old and I can not say enough about the wait staff! They were very accommodating with our baby. The food and service were excellent. We would highly recommend this restaurant!

One of the best meals I had in Nice, if not the best. My hotel got me a table at the bistro. The adjoining Rolancy's belongs to the same chef. Was seated right away. Mini quiches and a really good roasted pepper (I think) purée...More

We walked over to the Bistro early to see if we could get a table. Fortunately we were able to get in. The tables are close together as in most French restaurants - ours was situated in the passage between the back and front so...More

I'm in Nice, so I phoned the Bistrot les Viviers to present your question: They said that fish is prepared "à la minute," meaning immediately following your order. So you can stipulate your request as detailed, and they... More
