Intimate with good honest food, lovely little La Trinquette.

Arrived at 10 pm, great welcome. Well cooked fish, limited menu. That's fine. No pretense at pseudo nouvelle cuisine. Prefer this part of Villefranche, it's atmospheric, less pretentious and far more intimate. Loved the charming slightly dilapidated hippy feeling of restaurant. Blows... read more

Laid back, fabulous plat du jour for a reasonable price. Worth a visit , food was freshly prepared and well cooked.

We had dinner here recently. It is right next to hotel Darse. I had the fish of the day, which was whole and very good. Others had lasagne which they said was excellent. They had live music that was very good. I would go back if in the area.

Went there on a Friday evening. Had booked which was good as turned out to be busy. Music was jazz influenced with a just ok singer (singing in English) with an excellent guitarist. Food choice very limited but also very good: beef, fish or vegetarian lasagne. Nice touches in terms of food accompaniments and all well prepared and tasty. Decent... More

Went there for dinner with my family since it was full the previous night , first thing that annoyed us was the huge crowd, felt stuffy and literally had no space . Second thing that was a bit annoying was the Music . The band was good but it was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think . Last but... More

If it was only for the food, I would give this restaurant a good/very good, instead of excellent. We chose it primarly for its look, which is completely different to the tourist-feeding fabrics nearby: this restaurant is full of charme; very nice and original interior and exterior, very very friendly, attentive and quick service; brief a familiar atmosphere. I went... More

Ate here several times over several years. Food is excellent and the hosts very freindly. Love the Jazz nights on Friday and Saturday.

We ate here last night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The seafood salad and the vegetarian lasagne were both delicious. It is a casual place, but good ambience. We are returning again for the moules and frites which we have heard are delicious.

We had dinner with friends and will never come back again. Very poor service combined with below average food and a above average. The area has so many nice a good restaurants that this one should not be an alternative. Our simple request to un bone the fish was answered 'I don't know how to do it'.

We had booked a terrace table a couple of nights before and a good table was duly waiting for us. We had the house wine and carafe d'eau. We had the trinquette assiette and Darse salad to start. Then we had another large seafood salad and a fish dish with whole baked fish. We shared the main courses and a... More
