Just fun.

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... read more

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

We went there for a drink, initially when we arrived the service was good but we found it difficult to get someones attention when we wanted to order another drink, which I can understand when its not busy but when there were a few people difficult to understand. The cocktails were nice but very expensive. Its in a great location... More

What a find! The mussels were in the most amazing sauce and came with home made chips and home made mayonnaise.... Yummy! Washed down with a local, dry, blush wine. The.

This resturant was fantastic, with a trendy look and great food and service. I arrived on my own as my freind was booked on to a different flight the next day and I'm glad I picked the Beluga resturant because Anna made me feel very welcome and made the effort to have a little chat and help give me some...

We haven't eaten here, although the menu is very inviting. This is a great bar for enjoying a cocktail or two, or a nice glass of red wine, whilst watching the world go by! Perfect view of Beaulieu.

Like another reviewer, we stayed in the apartment above the restaurant. Upon arrival, Richard and his staff were warm and friendly. We introduced ourselves and immediately felt like we were at home. Each day as we came and went, the staff all greeted us by name and always a warm and friendly smile. One evening. Richard even brought us champagne... More
