We ate here with friends over the summer whilst passing through. The courtyard and table settings are gorgeous along with a lovely selection of French foods on the menu. The food was melt in your mouth and there was a great variety of wines to choose from. The only downside was the service - the staff were a little snappy... More

I at at this restaurant years ago when here with family. I can still picture the risotto made with lobster bisque and langoustines. So when driving through with friends I knew we had to return. Second time round it did not disappoint. The restaurant is set in a beautiful courtyard, one street up from the beach front. It is so... More

My experience of this place only goes to show it's the staff who make or break it. We were dealt with by one really lovely waiter to begin with but then one really rude member of staff who kind of spoiled it all. The waiter snapped at us for politely enquiring when our table would be ready and said we... More

We had an excellent dinner at Les Garcon, sitting outdoors, enjoying the ambience of old Villefranche-sur-Mer and delighting in the food. Definitely worth visiting. Booking is recommended.

We were heading towards a different restaurant for lunch on a Sunday in Villefranche but were drawn towards Les Garcons both by the menu and number of outdoor diners sat on the pretty terrace. The food was very good - a fresh and well cooked salmon fillet with rice and tomato / olive salsa followed by two pots each of... More

Another mainly outdoor restau on the pedestrianised street of rue Poiliu. Very, very good food. I had a very fine fillet steak here. The service is efficient and friendly. A little pricey but not off the scale either. But worth it. I never mind paying for very good food. I recommend this restau

Love the setting of this restaurant's outdoor seating in the evening. The beef cooked for 7 hours was some of the best meat I've ever tasted and the mash was excellent as well. No view of water but still a very romantic setting. Will definitely go back next time in Villefranche.
