A nice dinner

We came to Villefrance-sur-mer for dinner, and went to Beluga after reading their menu. We got seated in the terrace, next to the beautiful bay. The setting was very nice. At first the music was a bit loud, but when I asked if it could be turned down a little, they immediately did that and actually... read more

I am so surprised about Beluga, we had table with beautiful sea view! Fish and vine was amazing! After we ordered shisha, i think in France there is not goos quality, but in Beluga they make it like in good moscow places. Even better than in Monaco!!! I will back soon! Thanks guys for so good place in Villefranche!

We had a wonderful lunch here. The food, ambience and staff were very friendly and obliging as we ordered slight variations of the menu. The Assiette I ordered was delicious and they were happy to do without chicken. Amazing view of the bay to top off a lovely occasion.

Stopped at Villefranche for a quick lunch - I know, such a thing is practically impossible in France, but we tried. Wandered around the bay from the car park, passing a couple of restaurants which didn't take credit cards (take note! read the signs - CB Non accepte), and the Beluga appeared in our sights. Great location looking across the... More

Had a lovely lunch here. Olives to start followed by Moules and frites with a bottle of rose what's not to like? Very attentive waitress who brought a bowl of water over for Mr Richmond, the dachshund in our party which was a nice touch. Very nice location where you can sit and watch the world go by.

As most people have already mentioned there is a magnificent ocean view from the terrace, which by the way is too crazy for words design wise. It's really out there with fluorescent neons, a silver couch, retro chairs, etc... I like it, it's fun! Though an older or more classic clientèle might find it weird. We arrived with a group...

Breathtaking views of villefranche sur mer. Quirky upbeat little bar - we did not eat here though. It holds fond memories for us both as we got engaged here in 2011 and returned as part of our honeymoon in September 2012. 2 cocktails for 30 euros so about standard prices in cote d'azur. Will definately return on our next trip!

This was a night to remember. The restaurant send their tender to come and pick us up from our boat. The driver dressed in a blue tux, arriving at the dock, the maitre'd waited to help us disembark, dressed in a suit, but no socks with his dress shoes. Is this a french thing? Cocktails then dinner. the Duck Margret... More

We recently had lunch at this nice restaurant. The service was good, the waiter very friendly, although his English wasn't very good, he still tried to help as best he could. The food was wonderful, the wine great and the view magnificent! An enjoyable afternoon with splendid views.

I ate her twice over the past 2 weeks and each time was made to feel very welcome. The lovely Anna is wonderful and so very helpful. The cocktail area is sumptious with different colored arm chairs and couches which blend together very artfully. The restaurant itself is fab abd has so much character and again is done an eclectic... More
