Great location and amazing food!

Lovely restaurant in centre of the Old Town of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Good menu, both fish and meat dishes excellent. Lovely setting with good service from all the staff. Would highly recommend.

Rude waiter, subpar food for price. After just having finished my meal, the waiter yelled at me to leave the restaurant as I was leaving near the entrance. La belle étoile is much better.

What can I say, best restaurant in Villefranche Sur Mer-hands down! Waiters are attentive, charming and knowledgeable. Food is outstanding and ambiance is perfect. My large family loved it so much that they choose to go to Les Garçon 2 out of their 7 night stay. Everyone one loved the Filet and Scallops, Risotto is amazing too, cannot go wrong

We asked several people working at shops in town what restaurant they would recommend as a local. Les Garcons kept getting mentioned over and over. Outdoor seating was nice and the food was well done. We went in thinking we would just share appetizers but wound up ordering two appetizers, two meals and we split a cheese plate for dessert...

We had a very pleasant meal here on a quiet Friday afternoon. We’d read good reviews, so we made reservations, and ate out in the courtyard. We ordered their 2-course menu, since we were looking for something light. We started with pastis aperitifs, then entrees of salade thai & salade chevre chaude, and mains of crevettes a la provencale and... More

I had the calamari provencal. It was very flavorful and fresh. My friend had the ravioli and thought it was very good as well. On nice days the seating is outdoors. On rainy days the seating is indoors.

This is a very popular place that welcomes each diner to a candlelit courtyard party, it seems. While we landed here thanks to our hotel's recommendation, it was clear that many of the customers are regulars. Although the menu was a bit overwhelming in its many choices for us as English-speaking guests, the staff did a good job of pointing... More

Set in a courtyard, surrounded by characterful buildings a great atmosphere. Food superb, candlelight dining. Steak with truffle sauce -delicious, and cooked well done as that's how I like it. Not always easy to get in France! Partner had gambas- huge and very tasty, followed by tarte tartin flambéd with Calvados. I had creme brulee, perfect. Service was excellent.

We ate here for dinner and were overwhelmed with the quality of the food. Everything on the menu sounded great. I had the most tender octopus I have ever had. Wonderful seafood and beef, good value wine list and great desserts. Definitely eating here again.
