In VilleFranche sur Mer there are lots of places to dine, mostly typical seaside tourist types. All ok but if you want a really great dining experience try Les Garcon. The kids stayed in the room and had burgers and we had a night out to ourselves. Up the steps next to the Welcome Hotel and right at, I think, the third lane. Grab a table outside and get ready to be amazed by the service and the great food. This appears to be a mostly one man show with a couple of young guys helping out but it is the main guy that sets the pace and he is amazing. Covers 10-12 tables at once and still manages to engage everyone. We both had the asparagus app which was delicious and then the scallops. Now, I would rarely order scallops and they are certainly not my favorite dish but on recommendation I did and wow! The were glazed, cooked to perfection, large and wonderful. Had an 8 year old Pommard and it was drinking just right following the Grand Cru Chablis. This place is set up with umbrellas and well spaced tables across the lane from the small dining room. Really a romantic and comfortable restaurant with delicious food and great service. Make a reservation!

This was the best meal we had in four nights while staying there. The courtyard was a nice spot to eat dinner, nice ambiance. The service was very good, the two men work hard but still make an effort to interact with customers.

We both had the scallops and risotto dish, which was served hot and very tasty. Appetizer and dessert was also good. We were pleased with the whole experience, and would have gone back again the next night, but they close on Wed. Unfortunately, we ended up having a terrible meal next door. This place is suitable for a quieter romantic meal.

We've been here twice and food is very good. They don't have children's menu, but will make a plate of excellent ravioli (pasta) with tomato sauce for the little ones. Staff speaks English.

We enjoyed the warm asparagus salad and delicious scallops with risotto. The food was well prepared, hot, and it came rather quickly. The service was excellent. Although the menu (which is new each night) is in French, the server was very gracious to explain each item to us. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. We hope to eat at Les Garcons again before we leave Villefranche-sur-Mer.

You're reading this because you want to make sure that your dinner is worth the money you spend. Don't waste your time with all the other guys flogging their menus because this is the real deal. This restaurant is excellent all around. Ben, normally the one and only waiter handles ten tables with ease. The menu changes daily with the exception of a few favourites. Which are there for good reason, scallops, steak with Parmesan and the best potatoes you will ever taste. We ate here many times while staying in Villefranche because we knew we would get fantastic food, incredible wine, and friendly service. Don't hesitate. And don't just walk by. Eat!
