I love the simplicity of this place. Focus is on good products. Their speciality is tartines piled with good, organic ingredients but they also offer Buddha bowls and other platters, really good oysters and huge selection of organic wines. The setting in the courtyard is...More

A charming courtyard, with a huge wine list served by a very bubbly waitress. Food was amazing, but I wish they'd give up on the bowls and use a plate instead, it would be so much easier to eat. It was a very special night.

We have eaten at the restaurant next door many times, this was our first time at La Cave. The menu is limited, very much a light/snacking style. Not one for us.

I ate here two days ago because of the high trip advisor ratings....HUGE MISTAKE. Not only was the waitress rude and slow but the food wasn’t even good. We had three special bowls and they tasted worse than my cooking and I suck. Definitely will...More

We really liked the laid back atmosphere and the great staff and excellent service. The restaurant is situated smack in the middle off the old town in Villefranche so expect some sweaty stair climbing back and front. The food is somewhat different to the ”normal”...More
