The best food we've eaten so far in Nice/Villefranche sur Mer area. With very Friendly staff with excellent service skilled, this little restaurant is a must to try. Food was generous, presented well and very tasty. You can't go wrong dining here.

After a quick recce of restaurants situated not too far from the hotel we are staying in, my friend and I decided to give Last Caravelle a try as there looked to be a set menu for just under €20 with a good number of dishes to choose from. Our starters were stuffed mussels, tomatoes and mozzarella(huge plate), followed by... More

Situated just up a lane from the sea front, La Caravelle was quaint. I chose the Salmon which was very nice and came with vegetables. My husband chose the duck which he thoroughly enjoyed but there weren't any vegetables included, had we realised we'd have ordered a side dish.

The restaurant itself is ok. It is in a good position. That being said, if you want very small portions, if you want tinned tomatoes masquerading as a tomatoes and basil sauce on spaghetti. If you want muscles that still have their beards and have obviously not been cleaned. If you want a brusque patronne, very indifferent service and a... More

We went for a short break with friends to Villefranche for our 20th Aniversary and had a very enjoyable night at this restaurant, the food was lovely, the lady couldn't have been nicer, very friendly but not in your face. We are going back in October and will definately to back for another meal,

We discovered this delightful, romantic, charming restaurant almost by chance. Out of season, with most restaurants closed this was the last one open on a blustery rainy night. The decor was warm and romantic, the menu first class and food was the best we had in the 7 days down on the Cote D'Azur. Fantastic value for money, service attentive... More

This restaurant is handily situated in the heart of Villefranche and has a good atmosphere with friendly service. We shared a whole Daurade (€36) with potatoes and other trimmings, and the fish was beautifully cooked. Only problem was the service was quite slow. Maybe not the place if you're in a hurry.
