Fine if you like lots of little separate tastes (we do)

A slow night in January but we had booked and we're warmly welcomed by the partner who serves at the table. Her English is more than adequate to the task and there is a separate blackboard in English. Idiosyncratic design in the space, but for us it worked. The food comes with lots of little... read more

Having spent years getting frustrated with self important staff and overpriced menus, finally a reasonably priced, different and thoughtful menu....not your usual unimaginative standard rubbish focused on the tourist coming on on the cruise ship. Made better by a well priced wine list. Smoothly run by a couple of ladies, one provides the service, the other beavers away silently in... More

This is an interesting food concept and only two employees in a small (25 ish guest restaurant). But do not venture in with kids. Unwilling to adapt any dish and a constant look like she wanted us to leave made sure that we will never return.

Two couples had dinner at L'Aparte mid October based on a recommendation from our hotel. All four had wonderful meals-- one of the best if not the best during our two weeks in France. The ladies running the restaurant do a wonderful job. Highly recommend. Steve and Gail Ohio USA

Such fabulous food, these ladies work so hard and the food is just superb. Lovely small restaurant so not many covers at once I doubt but worth it if you can get a table....second visit and as good as the first time easily!

We ate here our first night in France. The food was good, but a little on the pricey side. We all ordered something different. Everyone like what they ordered and the service was good.

We travelled for seven weeks with another couple & we voted this the best meal of our travels. It is a quiet setting in a courtyard but every course was simply delicious. The service was great & a good selection of wine. Highly recommended.

Excellent food in a tiny courtyard, just off the main drag in Villefranche. Great service, food and wine. Capsule the westie dog comes as added entertainment (in a good non intrusive way)
