Fabulous food for tickly the prawn curry, the oysters were divine, the apple desert was to die for and the service was superb. I am so looking forward to visiting again and definitely one of my favourite restaurants in the area.

Ate at La Mere Germaine several times in January 2017. The food was always absolutely phenomenal; a real treat for the tastebuds. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and of course the location is superb. Take time to learn the history of the restaurant. Highly recommended.

On a lovely sunny January day we sat outside on the waterfront and had lunch! Villefrsnche is a delight anyway and it was a bonus to find this restaurant and eat on the waterside!
Setting stunning, staff very pleasant and food was good!
Lovely!

We were so lucky the weather was warm and sunny so we had a table outside on the quayside edge with a panoramic view across the bay. Absolutely stunning!
I can thoroughly recommend the lobster salad to start but not the lightly fried fish with onions as overpowered by the amount of onion and too much batter.
The rest was very good. Surf and turf with lobster Thermidor and lamb cutlets finished off with apple tart and grand marnier soufflé.
The Sancerre was good quality too.
There is no doubt the food and wine is on the expensive side so be prepared but you're paying for the history and location so as a special occasion it's a must but not as a regular haunt at £100 per head!

If you happen to be in Villefranche the food is worth going for both lunch and dinner. The staff is relatively friendly.
