This is the third year we've been to La Belle Etoile during our winter vacation in Villefranche, and once again, it was a lovely experience. It is very clear that this is a chef who knows how to create a very appealing menu, both a la carte and the fixed options. It's a small restaurant with just one person serving,... More

Stayed in villafranche ver mer with 4 high school girlfriends on vacation..went to this restaurant on our first night and it was great! Beautiful ambiance and our server was excellent..he gave us excellent recommendations on wine and food. Beef, risotto, and creme brûlée were very good. Kind of off the beaten path, but worth the stop!

The final of my top 3 restaurants in Villefranche Sur Mer. I love the quiet intimacy of this restaurant and have enjoyed many happy times and exquisite dinners here with family and friends. Great food, excellent service and fabulous wines. What's not to love? Definitely recommend. Book to avoid disappointment.

Food is very good. Service is excellent. A bit pricy but normal for the south of France. Servers very friendly. No view but that's ok. We ate outside on a walkway. Not noisy as it is above the main road. Definitely worth a visit.
