This was the second time we'd eaten here and we were not disappointed. The first time was in July when Villefranche was much busier, the second time being at the beginnng of October. This time we were a party of 6 consisting of adults and children. The meals were good, nothing fabulous(although I'm told that the daily special of veal tangine wth couscous was fabulous). The ravoli with ricotta filling and daube sauce was fine, nothing special and not a particularly large portion for €15. The childrens' meals were standard steak hache with frites. All in all an ok meal with friendly, courteous service, but there is much better value to be had in the back streets of Villefranche for those who don't need to see and be seen on the front.

Good position, great staff.
Not overpriced.
Catch of the day is from the boat that morning, so can sell out quickly.

At the beginning of our stay we avoided the sea front places. We thought they would be expensive and not good. But in the end we had to surrender to Cosmo, simply because we always saw it was full of people (and they have two terrazes and a two big rooms inside). So we tried it first with some drinks. The waiters are extremely attentive and on top of things, they were busy they could have ignored us as we were just having some drinks. We liked it so we decided to have dinner there. They are efficient, and even if they are busy they can have a chat with you. The food is good and they have some very good items (we ended up eating there 3 times) we liked their steak tartar. What we particularly liked is that they react to feedback and they are responsive about it. The first night we ordered a bottle of wine and the waiter came with another saying that they didnt have it but the one he was giving us was better. I didnt like the change but the wine was good. When he asked if everything was ok, I said to him as a joke "no... you gave us another wine"... Well, he came back with two glasses of a nicer wine and he told us "if you come tomorrow I recommend you to try this one". It was the first time in our holiday that our feedback is taken seriouls. So we ended up going there nearly everynight, and when we didn't we missed it!
Thats what I say, for me (and for a lot of people in Villefranche, that is why this is the only place that it is always full) this is number one! I recommend it for everything, groups, family, romantic (they always have a quiter corner),drinks, dinner or lunch.

We have had the continental breakfast twice, and one dinner at Le Cosmo. The staff are friendly, and they had a fantastic jazz band playing last night.
The breakfast is good value, and one third of the price of breakfast in our hotel.
Our evening meal was good but not excellent. Our waiter was friendly, spoke English a little, and was very efficient.
The ambience, location and music all rate excellent at this busy spot. Food and wine are expensive, you are paying for the waterfront location. You will find better food one street back from the water, so it is a matter of deciding what your priorities are.

This place is just completely delicious. The shrimp and grapefruit salad was one of the best salads I've ever had...it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. The location is wonderful, and perfect for a nice dinner or for a casual coffee and dessert while using the free wifi. I love this place, we came back several times and were completely blown away each time. We also had a (very pricey) fruit salad which was to die for...I'd venture to say it was worth the big bucks. If you're in Villefranche you have to eat here!
