We had planned to go to Loco Loco for mussels but it was closed, so ended up at this restaurant halfway up the hill. The service was very friendly and welcoming. We decided to try the bouillabaisse and because there was a bit of a wait, shared a plate of stuffed mussels first. These were nice and the soup was very tasty and full of seafood, but a bit heavy with a potato-y sauce. A little more expensive than other meals we'd had in the area but overall very nice and filling and there seemed to be quite a few regular customers, always a good sign.

This restaurant is in a great location, the service is energetic and the food is very good. We payed 16Euro for a delicious and fresh spaghetti gambas and couldn't have asked for anything else.

We chanced across La Caravelle while visiting Villefranche. The restaurant is in a touristy area but not right on the main beach area. The owner was very welcoming and we had a great table on the terraced alleyway area. We both chose the 'menu' which had a wonderful large selection and we had excellent food. My first dish was a crab salad with 2 huge prawns, followed by sea bass with excellent vegetable sides. My dessert was a good tart tartine with ice cream. The cost was just €19. Portions were huge and the food very good. My partner had a fantastic goat cheese salad appetizer followed by red mullet, also with good selection of vegetables and then tiramisu, again for €19. The choices on the 'menu' we're unusually extensive. Service was excellent and very accommodating and the atmosphere was made even more pleasant by the owners playful little white Maltese/Bichon dog.

Our family has visited Villefranche-sur-Mer through the years for extended stays and we have dined in every restaurant in this lovely seaside town. La Caravelle remains our overall favourite place to enjoy a meal in Villefranche for several reasons: the menu is varied, the food is excellent (for example, try their uniquely presented Salade Chèvre Chaud) and reasonably priced, and there are plenty of wines to choose from. You will receive attentive service from the hosts, Marie Chrystèlle and Pascal - wonderful, friendly, fun people! This is a restaurant where you are made to feel at home, we love this place and would recommend without hesitation.
