“Great spot for a cocktail, and people watching from the terrace.”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

We haven't eaten here, although the menu is very inviting. This is a great bar for enjoying a cocktail or two, or a nice glass of red wine, whilst watching the world go by! Perfect view of Beaulieu.

“Richard...such a character!”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

Like another reviewer, we stayed in the apartment above the restaurant. Upon arrival, Richard and his staff were warm and friendly. We introduced ourselves and immediately felt like we were at home.

Each day as we came and went, the staff all greeted us by name and always a warm and friendly smile. One evening. Richard even brought us champagne and a bowl of sweets for our daughter.

We visited our last night and had fantastic cocktails and nibbles. The music was great, atmosphere friendly and welcoming. The view...priceless.

Any future visits to Villefranche-sur-Mer will definitely include a visit to Beluga!

Thanks Richard....

“Nice touch”
Reviewed August 22, 2011

We stayed in an apartment above the restaurant for 1 week and on our last night we went to eat downstairs at le Beluga. So we had a whole week to look at the restaurant. Its a trendy setting and seems to cater for a lot of the locals... based on some of the expensive cars that stopped by. We did eat at another restaurant in Villefranche, even though its a bit more expensive here but the service and atmosphere were very nice. A very nice meal overall !! The owners are very involved in running the business who also greeted us when we first arrived at the apartment and also when we left.

“Decent food, over priced drinks.”
Reviewed June 25, 2011

The service was good and the waiters were friendly. My wife and I both enjoyed our meal. We stopped in on the Way back from the beach and were not in the mood for alcohol. Water and coca cola were 5 euros a glass. A bit ridiculous. But the did bring out peanuts, trail mix and a large bowl of candy for our 3 year old son while we waited for our food. That was a nice touch.

“Mediocre but nice view”
Reviewed July 25, 2010

The food was quite bland and expensive for what it was. However, the view is nice sitting on the water. I think the drinks are probably the main attraction as the bar menu and wine list were quite extensive. However, the drinks were quite small and expensive as well.
