Nice location and atmosphere but food was just ok, nothing extraordinary (a bit pricey for what it is)

This is by far the best restaurant in Villefranche. The service is always excellent and the food unsurpassable year upon year. You will want to try everything on the menu its so good. Also the ambience is lovely in a beautiful courtyard. Visit in the evening but book first otherwisr you won't get in.

Nice location in a little square, but the dining experience was a little disappointing, given the rave reviews. Had sea bass which was poorly prepared, full of bones, cold vegetables and overpriced for what it was. Nothing remarkable about starters or desserts, all edible, but nothing more positive than that. Service was haphazard, long delays in dealing with requests. Wouldn't... More

Great food, great wine list and great service in a fabulously romantic setting. We love this restaurant and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting villefranche. It is set in a a small square on Rue Du Poilu, not far from the seafront. At night it has a fabulously relaxed and very romantic atmosphere. If you propose here and she... More

Excellent outdoor restaurant a short distance from the quayside. Very good quality meals and wine list. Fantastic service from 'the boys'. We ate here three times over the week and much preferred this restaurant to the quayside offerings.

It was their last day of the summer season 2012 and the owner told us on his plans to visit NY to enrich his knowledge on cuisine. We were alone and had the whole restaurant to ourselves. The owner was a cultivated young Parisian and along with his brother they prepared us a well presented and delicious mix of entree/main... More

We followed a local's recommendation to this restaurant and had a fabulous lunchtime meal. Following a run, swim and sunbathe - we were starving and opted for the Fixed price menu - 2 courses at €15. A delicate courgette and Parmesan tart to start with for both of us followed by a tuna/prawn stir fried main course. The food was... More

We have eaten here 5+ times in previous visits, went a couple of days ago when we were at the new wine bar next to it, and we ate inside this time (it has tables outside, but it was raining). Food was as good as ever, service efficient and friendly, good choice of wines, everything well executed, nice choice of... More

Although a good restaurant , the staff were surly, and would not accommodate for our daughter who wanted a plain pasta. The food was expensive and you can get better elsewhere.
