Premiere location in Villefranche-sur-mer nestled right on the water, on the second floor. Provides beautiful view of the bay, and Cap Ferat in the distance. However, do not expect a long sunset over the ocean due to location. Food is okay, however it does come...More

Embark with our crew on the terrace of Mayssa Beach standing as the stern of a ship above the bay of Villefranche. With a single glance, you embrace the Mediterranean, Cap Ferrat and the Citadel. To recommend, the small table of lovers installed on the pontoon a few centimeters of water. Side plate, discover a simple kitchen with some well-measured creative twist, prepared with products from the market and from the sea. For example, squid cooked "a la plancha" with lemon thyme tip served with grilled vegetables, or unusual and exclusive pluma slad of Pata Negra fried with rosemary juice, mashed potatoes and vegetable medley. Also the highly desired "catch of the day" according to the consignment, consisting of grilled fresh fish served with seasonal vegetables and a virgin sauce. The spirit reflects this cuisine combining subtle mix constant quality, friendliness and generosity.

Groups menus are available to facilitate the organization of your events, up to 200 people, and two covered rooms can accommodate up to 130 people.
