Four of us ate here and everything was very good, service was really friendly and food was served hot, fresh and well presented. Prices good for the area. Nice outside seating area.

I must say (for my first comment on this site) that I have been very positively surprised by this restaurant situated just above the harbour from Villefranche-sur-mer. My wife had a typical dish from the region that I can't remember the name (you shouldn't miss it if you go through the region!!) and I had an excellent sea bream fished in the morning right in front of us.
We won't either forget the nice "rosé" wine, the warmful and helpful waiters and of course the sunburn we brought back home!

In the South of France, this is one of my favorite all time restaurants! Been going there for a while and no matter how short my trip is, I always make time to come and eat in this fantastic restaurant.

The service is always great, the food is always fresh and tasty. Their seafood can't be any fresher or can it be cooked any better. My experience has always been positive and everyone that I have taken to this restaurant has come back raving about it.

If you sit by the waterside - this restaurant has one of the best views of any restaurant in Villefranche; overlooking the port, the bay and the local's little fishing boats on the slip way.

Located by Chapelle de Saint Pierre des Pecheurs (the beautifully decorated chapel by Jean Cocteau) and the car park, Achile's Restaurant (formerly Le Calypso) is perfectly located. The pizza here is brilliant and the owner (Tom?) is very friendly. The ice cream is delicious also!
