Friendly, good food and nice atmosphere

Nice atmosphere, just around the corner of the harbour in the beginning of the promenade. Friendly and quick service. Good food for a good price. We had spaghetti a la vongole and moules with a variety of choices in flavour. Tasted great!

Didn't like this place at all. Felt we were in a fast food place in Britain. The veal in breadcrumbs had been deep fried and the waitress plonked a dish of packet sauces on the table. There were wasps everywhere. One good thing the head waiter seemed very good but wasted in this restaurant.

Went here a couple of times on my recent villefranche trip. The salads, pasta and pizzas are great. Nice friendly service and great banter with the waiter. Great location to people watch!

We visited hear 13th August, as it always seemed full, having eaten here we now know why. Its all about the frenetic service. Talk about understaffed or sweating your assets. The management/ waiting team were run ragged. Our waitress wrote nothing down (always a concern) so we had to chase and wait for wine, although the bill came very quickly!... More

Food is delicious, atmosphere lively though relaxing by the sea and I absolutely loved the Gambas Flambes au Pastis. Highly recommended. I kept returning there again and again.

Visiting Villefranche a few times over a few weeks we kept ending up here. It has a nice view through to harbour, the food is always excellently prepared, cooked and arrives promptly and its great for children. Always busy made it a good sign and we can recommend the seafood spaghetti, the veal in mushroom sauce and the children's menu.... More

Les Palmiers has a vibrant atmosphere and excellent service coupled with solid food. The "Italian burger" is one of the best burger I've ever had. Dined there twice in mid-July 2015 and enjoyed both visits. Nice place to hang out and enjoy an evening while sipping on wine and dinning under the stars.

We had a very nice Moulles frites meal in this restaurant. The service was very good. They are very effective making new tabels and are very flexible placing tables together.

The food was good but it completely spoilt by the attitude of the staff. Our waitress virtually threw our cutlery at us and did not say a single word to in response when we spoke to her. Looking around, the attitude of the staff generally appeared to be the same. It's a shame as the food was good as was... More

Let's get this review in context. We were staying in a spacious apartment high above Villefranche with fantastic views and a terrace to beat any restaurant. So our visits here were for reliable good value food for four of us when we wanted a break from cooking and cleaning up. I'm sure we missed many more good value restaurants in... More
