Food was good, service was good, and a very cosy atmosphere in a typical frenc backyard street. I would very much go back there on a later visit to this area.

This is the first time I have written a review but felt that I had to because of the terrible dining experience we had here. Because of the location of this restaurant it is always busy but please don't let this fool you. My fiancé and i nearly went to the place the year before but there was always a... More

Living in Nice we are not short of great places to eat, however one favourite is in near by Villefranche that constantly excels is Les Garçon. Open only seasonly, it delivers simple, classic menu items with robust flavours and using the best local ingredients. Service is prompt, efficient and friendly, especially from the big man 'Tax'. Its located in the... More

Delighted to return here after all these years and find this gem in rue du poilu - staff sooo friendly and entertaining - food so fresh and tasty - and the amazing risotto and scallops never disappoint - cannot recommend it highly enough...

We visit the Hotel Welcome at Villefranche a couple of times a year and our first evening meal is always Les Garcons (in season, when it's open). Engaging owner and staff who explains everything on the menu and the specials, decent wine list and lively atmosphere whist staying the right side of tasteful.

We choosed this restaurant at the last day of our stay in Villefranche. To be honest, we visit Les Garcons because of full booked L'Aparte but finaly, we were happy for this scenario. Their risotto was the best I've ever eat and my girlfriend's lamb was delicious as well. The best food we had in Villefranche was completed by stunning... More

My wife and I came upon this place on a day trip to Villefranche, and it almost made our whole holiday worthwhile in itself. The location was ideal - shaded small courtyard with a view down an alley to the turquoise bay, and a great spot to watch tourists and locals mill about the charming town. We had the €19... More

Liked the atmosphere and the wait staff a lot. Loved the food! They are a little pricey but it's worth it. They were not very generous with single glasses of wine so I recommend a bottle instead. Great spot.

Unbooked, restaurant quite busy on a Sunday evening. Nice artichoke salad starter. Mains of lamb shank and sea bream were very good. Dessert of flambéed apple tart splendid as was cheese board. Wine list on the pricy side with few medium - priced offerings. Pricing may reflect area. Staff friendly.
