Good food never been before, situated in a car park from the outside quite pretty but once inside not attractive at all there is an elevator or a miserable looking dark grey carpeted stair case. The restaurant itself was nothing special to look at but the food service and wine list excellent. Wonderful Views of Cap Ferat and on the... More

We ate here one night during a recent stay in Villefranche. The location and view is absolutely what you are paying for here. The food was good but I've had better at any number of restaurants in France. The service seemed a tad frantic. For a beautiful romantic evening's dinner at the ocean side with the lights of Villefranche-sur-Mer and... More

We went to this restaurant two couples. It was a beautiful day and sitting on the terrasse of Le Mayssa Beach could not have been a better choice. Personally I was sceptical going to this restaurant as I remembered a year ago when it was a total chaos here. Only two tables were occupied this november day. All the courses... More

the experience was great, the table location absolutely fantastic, the service excellent, the dinner based on fish dishes and the list of wine was again very tasted. I have seen as well a table for two for a romantic dinner placed just in quite isolated corner to close to the sea.

The view and environment is possibly the top factor, followed by the lovely, attentive service and the food. This meal will be on the more expensive side ($$$) so prepare your wallet. We sampled the risotto and scallops main and were quite happy with it, not life altering, but still extremely flavorful. We also tried the fish which had some... More

The risotto with St Jaques scallops is without a doubt one of the best I've ever tasted anywhere in the world. The view is magical. At times the staff could be a bit more friendly and attentive, otherwise I would have given 5 stars.

This is a lovely restaurant located on the second story at the end of the parking lot on Wilson. We sat at the edge and the view of the yachts was wonderful. The fish was very fresh and the starters of three salads all tasted as if just picked. It's lovely to see things return to a gracious pace as... More

Went here with friends for a birthday meal this August - had been year before, very impressed then, as impressed now. Good fine dining, good menu and choices, friendly service = slightly off the main drag, but just walk into the car park opposite Cosmo keeping to the left hand side walking alongside the port building, and entrance is on...

It's hard to beat the view out over the bay from here, but while the service is good, the food is mediocre.

To recommend, the small table of lovers installed on the pontoon a few centimeters of water.
