Best Food in VilleFranche

As always, the food was outstanding. And the service was second to none. The Toblerone Tiramisu dessert is a must! Though everything we ate was delicious.

As it was recommended as the number one restaurant we had to try it!! It was very easy to make a booking the evening we decided to go. However we were slightly disappointed by the whole experience especially after reading such positive reviews. When we asked could we give our order she said the kitchen was not ready and to... More

Visited on Saturday night- the place is ok, food is a edible but nothing special. Reminds me of a UK brasserie from the 1990's in terms of 'unusual' flavour combinations and presentation - think swirls of sticky flavoured vinegars. Shame really as the scallops were fresh and well cooked and the fillet steak tasted of meat and was cooked medium... More

Fine a good cousine leaded with passion from two frienly and kind ladys. They take care of all details and able to create a great atmosphere. Good quality of raws with somthing able to create a tasty difference. Go there and enjoy a good cousine style.

The dinner was lovely and the staff spoke very good English. We had two courses as well as desert. The dinner was just right and off of the water. We had several dinners on the water and were looking for something different.

You wouldn't necessarily know its there, but find this tiny street and you will be delighted with a food sensation. The staff are fantastic, the chef extraordinary and you absolutely must try the "fromage au cru" with pear.

We ate here twice over Christmas holiday, and already have reservations for our return next week. Not as inexpensive as the other places we ate, but worth every penny and then some. You are in France, so the bar is high, and they hit the mark.

We've just had a meal at L'Aparte and were looking forward to it based on the ranking on TA. My initial bugbear was with the service (though saying that I have found must of the restaurants in VSM lacking in this respect .... Surprising given that working in a restaurant is a highly regarded profession in France). We tried to... More

I'm so glad we discovered this amazing restaurant , The food was delicious, so full of flavour, the presentation is the best I have ever seen., and the desert were unbelievable, best we have ever had . The food is cooked by an amazing chef who works on her own in an open kitchen. It would be a travesty if... More

The location is a little hidden away, between some other restaurants. Great food, good wine, friendly people. Not very cheap, but worth it.
