Family owned and super friendly this is a place to go for a great meal. You will get more than anyone should ever eat and yet somehow the food vanishes.

Delicious meal, with charming service from two very busy ladies, and their delightful dog. The ratatouille was fab. We can see why the local people eat here!

We went ashore from our cruiseship and walekd through Villefranch-Sur-Mer. We enjoyed a beautiful stay at this restaurant with its nice charme and the really great food. Ask for the daily specials.
