La Caravelle is one of several restaurants on the steep steps of the pretty town of Villefranche-sur-mer. Choose the right table and you get an excellent view both up the hill and down to the port. We chose the reasonably-priced 3-course "menu" that started with a massive crab salad. The chicken with mushroom sauce was delicious and served with extremely good chips (not fries, proper chips!). After two huge courses, we opted for ice cream, and were delighted to find they had coffee-flavour (not always easy to find). Service was good but became a bit haphazard once they got busy and they seemed understaffed. A fun experience with good, basic food in large portions.

What an amazing little find. Came across this place walking around - ended up coming for dinner twice. The lady who runs this is so lovely and accommodating which made this a good experience. The menu is such good value for money for 18 euro! Cheap good wine and all round good food - a must visit!

We had a fantastic meal here. Every course is well put together and presented. But probably the most surprising thing is the value for money. Villefranche and Nice are not cheap places in general so nice surprise when the bill came. Would definitely recommend La Caravelle but book in advance as its popular.

Went last night, two couples, one of whom was celebrating his birthday. The food was excellent as all the reviews have said. Yes madame can be a little abrupt but it’s clearly part of her charm and as the evening progressed we were serenaded by a busker, probably not the best voice, but made up for it with his charm. The lady of the house explained that he was a very kind man and for that reason she was happy for him to entertain. We ended up singing old Beatles numbers, the proprietor, Pascal, came out to serenade us and we learned that he has expertise at karaoke in Paris. A memorable night and we shall return.

We were walking to find a place to eat and were hesitant at first. What an absolutely great and pleasant surprise! The food was excellent! Best Bouillabaisse we have ever had! Great atmosphere, delicious food and wine.
