Beautiful restaurant en Cote Azur. in Villefranche sur MEr.. It's 2 years (2011-2012) I usually go in Cote Azur and this is my favourite restaurant... Owners are really polite and are available to meet customers' needs.. cooking is an up franch level.. accurated in every details.. nothing is left to chance... the location is really amazing.. in the heart of this old historic village.. you can also see the sea from the open space... what else??? I recommend strictly if you want to spend a beautiful evening with friends or with your partner.... you will be satisfy for sure....

Our family actually lives in Villefranche 3 months of the year. There are nearly 100 restaurants to choose from and La Caravelle is at the top of our list. The food is local and authentic and for under €20 per person a great value. The husband and wife own and both run the restaurant from the front of the house and add great character to your experience. Surely a gem in a beautiful seaside village and the owners speak some English which is a great comfort to some of our guests.
Don't miss this one for sure.

A family run restaurant specializing in local cuisine. Very casual atmosphere wth the owner dong the serving. So good we went both nights we stayed in Villefrance. The mussels are not to be missed, and go ahead and splurge for bouillabaisse. If you have a problem with servers in short or dog in the dining area, choose another restaurant.

clean organized small restaurant, family run with attentive personnel, mostly local specialties. as long as you pay attention to your choices, the bill will be reasonable considering the standards in the area. the carafe wine is a good budget choice. easy location, nicely decorated.

This restaurant gives good value. It is entirely family run and the "owner" ran around like a whirlwind. Some may have found it a little too casual and the staff ate on a large table in the dining room towards the end of the evening. We didn't mind that as it was not a formal occasion. Everyone around us seemed to be enjoying the evening.The food was very good. We had the fixed price menu but had to add 8 euros and 4 euros to get our preferences so the 19 euro menu actually cost 27 and 23 euros..The house wine was a pleasant inexpensive local wine and better than most we have had in the Nice area. When we holiday in Villefranche again we'll visit La Caravelle again.
I went with my adult daughter.
