We ate here on our first night in Villefranche Sur Mer. The whole experience was made so much more special by the lovely staff. The food they recommended was delicious but their love of their jobs welcoming their diners made it a joy to eat here.
When we returned on our third night, they remembered us and even that we had sat at the same table. That's wonderful customer service. Thankyou.

We'd visited this restaurant when we were in town four years ago and remembered having had a good experience so decided to return.
Service was very good, very friendly - We do tend to eat fairly early (7-7:30) so end up avoiding issues that might arise when places get busy.
I decided to try the 17-euro 3-course menu (was very surprised to see such a low-priced dinner offering). Salade Nicoise, filet of Sea Bream, dessert. The salad was good and quite large - My wife could have eaten this as a meal by itself. The fish dish was nicely prepared. My wife's pasta was cooked perfectly. I selected the profiterole for dessert, a definite highlight, good enough to make us return a few nights later.
On that second visit I had the (very large) duck breast and my wife the mixed seafood pasta. Again, very substantial portions, conventional preparations, excellent execution. Finished again with that beautiful profiterole.

It's not high-end fine dining but as the previous reviewer stated, they have very good food, service and value. For a more romantic dinner one might perhaps rather go to L'Oursin Bleu or La Mere Germaine on the water but if you're looking for a simple, good, well-priced meal (albeit still romantic - how can any place down here not be so?) this would be a place you'll want to check out.

My wife and I enjoyed dining at La Grignotiere. The escargot and bouillabaisse were very good. The staff were very friendly and the price was reasonable.

We ate here on a Saturday night and it was very busy. We waited at the bar next door for about 20 minutes to get a table. The two ladies serving were rushed off their feet, so the service for some might be considered slow, but we were in no hurry. The food was excellent. Three courses for 17 euros is highly competitive considering the location. Both waitresses said hello to us when we walked by the restaurant the next evening. I will certainly be eating there again.
