I know Beluga already 3 years, every time there i feel myself like at home :) The atmosphere is very friendly. From this summer Beluga starts to make a shisha - this kind of shisha i smoked only there - really best one in Cote D'azur. For apero - Assiette Beluga - the tasty one! Really can reccomend this place!!!

I have recently returned from Villefranche and we visited Beluga several times for lunch and dinner. We had the best seafood risotto. Richard "Dickie" could not have been more helpful and even got some food for us when arrived late one night. Highly recommend Beluga Delicious food, great service, beautiful view and setting.

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 changed the music to... 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...
