My family and I had a lovely meal at this charming restaurant on the last night of our one week stay in Villefranche-Sur-Mer. We had wanted to come earlier after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor but it was closed during the couple of times we went there. We finally got to sample an excellent meal on a Wednesday night.... More

We have eaten many times at Le Serre, including twice in the last week. It is just down the street from the apartment that we have rented in Villefranche-sur-mer. The ambiance is warm, friendly and unpretentious. The staff is incredible. They are friendly, professional, fun, attentive and all around great. The food is wonderful. You can have one of their...

We visited this restaurant numerous times and enjoyed every visit. The service and service were both great plus it is reasonably priced.

I went to Villefranche sur Mere to meet up with long lost family. We enjoyed a stroll around the port and seafront area. My family had travelled up from Nice about twenty minutes away by Train. We picked this particular because it was convenient. Also because I am a wheelchair user and it was nice and flat easy to move... More

Nice athmosfere, funnily situated in a stairway between houses, very friendly staff, but unfortunately much too greasy pizzas. The bottom of my pizza was very crispy and good.

The seafood pizza was excellent with lots of seafood and cheese, it was called the New York. My wife's chèvre salad was tasty with lots of cheese. We enjoyed the ten euro house wine.

I took 23 people to this fun and charming spot in the alleyways of Villefranche sur Mer. The service and food was great. We had about 80% of the entire outside area. Everyone had a good time. The 20 Euro wine was great, and we had a great mix of shared appetizers, salads, pizzas, and desserts. We would go back... More

On an evening excursion to Villefranche-sur-Mer from Nice, we "stumbled" upon Le Serre while wandering the labyrinth of streets in this picturesque town. Why this restaurant? Because it was full of people and the other restaurants were not - which usually means good food! We had a great meal of seafood with outstanding service. The staff were really engaging and... More
