We're scouring the French/Italian Riviera for a month. We did Villefranche-sur-mer today. It is late October and a lot restaurants are closed. Cote Jardin caught our eye because they offered a prix fixe menu for 18 euros that included appetizer, main and dessert. That's more than you usually get for the lunch menu. We tried the warm goat cheese salad... More

The restaurant warns: if you are in a hurry go somewhere else. And in a hurry you do not want to be to be able to enjoy the atmosphere (the tables are placed a round a huge pine tree), and the quality of the food. Gilles, the owner is friendly, and the staff efficient, despite the warning. The best surprise... More

Only 2 men were serving people in this large place. The other one was actually running and carrying plates so effectively that it was too much for us lazy visitors... Poor boy, let's hope that he earns well... Our sardines were grilled too much and they were too dry.

It was hands down the best pasta we've ever had!! Absolutely amazing. The staff was extremely nice, and Sam, our waiter was the best!! We would come back... More

We have stayed in Villefranche for 3 nights, and each trip into the town we have passed this restaurant and it's been very busy.. Our last night , a Friday, we decided to go there for our final meal. It was very busy, which we found strange as it had been the other evenings we had passed here, so we... More

We ate at this restaurant twice whilst staying in Villefranche-sur-Mer. It can get very busy, so it is advisable to pre-book a table. They have an a la carte menu with a variety of interesting meat and fish dishes. Also, they have an 18 euro, 3 course fixed menu which changed on both the occasions we were there. It included...

We had a lovely dinner here and very friendly service. We had mussels and pepper steak and both were delicious and generous. Will be back on our next visit.

One street behind the main busy and noisy restaurants, this place is delightful and the food delicious. Service is personalized, atmosphere nice and romantic. Not recommended with children.

Lovely court yard garden with friendly fun service although a little slow. We both had the entrecôte and asked for French fries instead of sauté potatoes which was no problem. Enjoyed it so much we are going back again tonight.

The location is perfect, surrounded by trees in a little square just before you get into the old quarter. Food was good, service could have been a little better but quite acceptable.
