“Great freshly cooked food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

We ate here on our first night in Villefranche. We had a lovely meal and were impressed with the quality of the food, it exceeded our expectations. Would highly recommend a visit, there are many restaurants to choose from in the immediate vicinity but this one is definitely worth trying.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

Charming setting just up from the harbour. We came here for a light lunch, however soon found ourselves drooling over everyone else's food as it came out. Wonderful waitress despite other reviews and great food! A good choice menu and reasonably priced. We would go again.

“Found Better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

Ate at La Caravelle on 9th August - Waitress unpleasant, we wanted to sit outside but were ordered to sit inside, even thought empty outside. My partner had chicken breast with mustart sauce, the chicken breast was not even half a breast, and was tough. I had pasta, which was okay, but for the price we paid, very disappointing. Would highly rate Les Palmiers, we ate their 3 times.

“Lovely setting - service with a smile, hmmm ?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

We came upon this restaurant by accident, its set on steps up from harbour area. They were pulling us in as we walked past and we stopped and eventually sat down. The waiter and waitress were rather abrupt (is that just the French way?) and if the reviews on trip advisor had said anything other than good, we would have left and moved on. However, we ordered prawns bush (big bowl of prawns), mussells (large bowl) and lasagne - small portion and i was starving. We also ordered chips, which arrived in a small basket, good job too as lasagne just wasn't enough. Its a shame about the 'happy' service which did disappoint me, but overall the food was good.

“Great staff but i had hair in my food :(”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

Good staff, good location, good food in general, good presentation vine and menu.
But I had a hair in my food. I didn't say anything but i noticed that a waitress saw it when she rid the table, but she said nothing.
The company was happy but the hair killed the good vibe for me.
