Saw it fully packed with long queue around 3pm so had to try it for dinner. Went there just before 6pm, was totally empty. Staff was genuinely friendly. We ordered a fish fillet and a medium rare burger. Fish came with rice, tasted pretty good. My medium rare burger was more like well done, and certain parts of the patty... More

We have eaten at this chain all over France. We find it inconsistent. We were staying nearby and were very tired when returning from a tour. We decided to eat here and were very glad we did. We sat outside and the location is great for watching the world go by. I was very pleased with my steak and fries.... More

Hippopotamus has many restaurants all over France. Shortly: in Nice food was very good, it´s quite cheap, staff friedly/polite and it`s always open. Service did not work well. Reason was very easy to understand: too many people, restaurant is too popular! It´s not for people in hurry.

We visited this restaurant on the late afternoon of 18/10/16. There was just one lady waitress on duty....she was extremely efficient, friendly and kind and we just had drinks and a jacket potato, since we had already had a meal earlier. The reason for the very good rating is because of her excellent service. On the basis of this service... More

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
