Joyful Spot

We were present with a large group of 50 people, so we had a buffet. The food was plentiful and satisfying - tabouli, shrimp on skewers, salads - nothing terribly unusual or particularly haute French but a good hearty meal. Even more importantly, the manager was a friendly smiling individual who... read more

Great location overlooking the port. Surprisingly the fish soup was excellent but I suspect it was a tin checking the other dishes served. Not really a restaurant but more a place to have something to eat and meet friends. Terrace is nice.

This restaurant is right next door to the Hotel Darse - where we stayed - so we gave it a try one evening. It was packed inside (seemed to be a party of some sort, with a buffet) so we sat on the veranda outside. The friendly waiter was happy for me to swop the folding wooden chair for a... More

We went on the recommendation in the Rick Steeves France 2013 guidebook. The place was packed yet the owner managed to squeeze us in. The menu for food is on the first page only, the rest of the menu is drinks. We were unsure what was on the menu as our French is limited, however upon choosing a dish which... More

It is not easy to find a very relaxed restaurant off the beaten track. At the harbour,quite a walk from the city center,but by car quite easily to be reached and creative parking possible. Jazzy music,small tables outside,much more space inside,the owner overviews all with a limited kitchen brigade. Not much choice on the menu and do not expect something... More

This year La Trinquette celebrates its 50th anniversary. It is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with great character. The service is friendly and attentive. The food is good with some exceptional dishes on the menu of the day. Try the fish soup! On most weekends there is live jazz music which creates an amazing ambiance. One of our favorite restaurants in... More

We went here due to the close proximity to our hotel. We were extremely disappointed by the experience. One person serving 20 and it was very slow. The food we believe was not to standard for a place like this and as such, poor value for money. Can't understand previous reviews.

My family and I were staying at Hotel De La Darse and decided to eat at La Trinquette. The atmosphere and the meal was so amazing that we went back twice. One night they even had live jazz music. I very eclectic place. When you walk in there is a reading area and then the tables. My favorite item on... More

Past this place innumerable times but never gave it a second glance until yesterday when the rain came down and it was the obvious (closest!) choice. Sat alone on the damp narrow terrace accompanied by Moules frites and a beer followed by an apple crumble and a café. Doesn't sound a great experience I know but the simple food was... More

A friend and I were staying in Villefranche for 2 weeks. We had tried 4 of the top 5 rated restaurants and were looking for something new in the area. We read about this restaurant in Rick Steves book on Provence. The restaurant is near the "other port" and a little off the beaten track. We really, really liked it.... More
