We went to Hippopotamus for lunch with our children. It was busy but the host seated us right away. We found the service to be very good. It was wonderful to find a place in Nice that caters to children. They provided a nice children’s menu and pens to color. The food was good and the price seemed reasonable for such a busy tourist destination. Best of all they don’t close from 3 until 7pm which is wonderful when traveling with children in France, where many restaurants close their doors during that time.  Hippopotamus is a chain located all over France.
