We could see this restaurant from our balcony and it looked inviting. We couldn't access wifi here so didn't have the benefit of reviews but we were very happy with the restaurant. The owner was very friendly and the food was tasty, I chose the duck, scrummy! The only down side was a lack of legumes! We'd have ordered a... More

A lovely family-owned and run restaurant away from all the others surrounding the harbour - peaceful setting, room to breathe, with an outdoor terrace. Food was delicious - freshly cooked to order and simply served. I would certainly revisit should I return to Villefranche-sur-Mer.

We stopped in here for a meal after reading some TA reviews. We asked to sit in the patio area to be away from the TV. The hostess assured us that there would not be smokers out there because it was enclosed at this time of year. Halfway through our meal, however, two other groups showed up, sat out there... More

While walking around we found this place and decided to eat lunch. We ordered a white pizza to share. The pizza' cheese was nice and gooey and the crust almost melted in your mouth.

If there is one restaurant you must visit in Villefranche, then this must be it. We were recommended this place by the lady we rented our apartment through. Her great review, was certainly not unfounded. Quite honestly the view across the bay from some of the outside tables is excellent. The owners couldn't do more to help, or serve you.... More

My wife and I, along with another couple, are staying in Villefranche-sur-mer for the entire month of July. Our property manager had recommended La Belle Epoque, so we tried it out. We all had a wonderful meal at a great price. The wine selection was not large, but the bottle of red wine we ordered was one of the better... More

This restaurant has a large terrace / awning so there's plenty of room. The food was good, particularly the apple tart which we praised the chef for. The only downside for us was the abundance of chain-smokers which even though outdoors made our eyes stream. The restaurant is quite a long climb up from the quay front, and doesn't have... More

Not fancy or expensive but good fresh food! We had a pizza and a chicken caesar salad, followed by creme brulee, and it was all fabulous.

Beeing close to our apartment we chose this restaurant despite complaints from others about the smoking. It was no problem and we enjoyed the big homemade burgers and the steak. Good service, and the many lokals eating there must be a sign of good value for your money.

We had our anniversary dinner here during our stay in the Nice area. Fantastic food and a very memorable dinner. The location is in the middle of town - the ambiance was beautiful.
