As always, fabulous experience. Superb combination of location, service & food. Fish soup and Sole Meunière were superb, finished off with a Souflee. Perfect.

We had planned on splitting a bouillabaisse, but its not an option as they do a double serving per each person. Anyhow we decided to do it because its a must for this area, and though it was good, definitely didn't think it was worth the 51 euro price tag per person. It's a good soup/stew, but nothing that will knock your socks off (for example, I think a lobster bisque is way more flavorful). So for the price of two nice steaks ($120 total), we ended up with a "pretty good" fish stew.

Service was good, and couldn't beat the view, so if that's important to you, you might find it worthwhile. However, if you're just looking to "try" a bouillabaisse, I would definitely go elsewhere.

I had memories of Mere Germaine being a bit stuffy - but on a fine autumn day there are few places in the world to compare with this waterfront terrace with excellent cuisine - the menu at 40€ was perfect and the bill of 115€ a nice surprise inc one glass of wine

We dined here recently to celebrate a special occasion. It was our second visit. The food is excellent. The wine list superb. Unfortunately, the service was lackadaisical. Management would do well to inform waiters that patrons should not be left waiting to sign the credit card slip while the waiter sets up tables for the next day. We sat there in disbelief, watching our waiter busily putting down glassware and cutlery on nearby tables. My husband had to ask for the cc slip to sign. A less than professional presentation to say the least.

The staff that met us was haughty and the food we were served was just mediocre for the prices and the pretenses of this restaurant. Anyway the location is perfect - on the quay and the visitors from the yachts anchored in the vicinity and the tourists are obviously ready to pay for that service, I should be honest and say that the only person from the restaurant that was friendly with the customers, was the owner, but if so, he'd just have to train the waiters not to be so scornful and to improve the food quality. In spite of that we had a nice time this evening and it did not spoil our excellent impressions on Villefranche-sur-mer - a gorgeous village that should not be missed at Cote d'Azure!
