Sited on a corner diametrically opposite the edifice which is the Opéra of Nice, this restaurant is ever popular with visitors and locals alike. It serves meals and drinks at table all day long. It is usually busy and this can render rather slow service...More

Good location, but average meal was spoilt by surly waiters who couldn't care less and worst of all they very obviously tried to short change me thinking stupid foreigners won't spot it. To make matters worse there is a smell of drains that pervades.

We went here on a whim for lunch. We really shouldn't have. Slow service, over 1 hour wait for a salad(!!!) and the restaurant wasn't even half full! So choose somewhere else!

This restaurant is well located in the old town of Nice. After several days of haute cuisine we just wanted something simple, and Bistrot de l'Opera fitted the bill. We had the Poulet roti, with herbs and frites and a small salad garnish and it...More
