Enjoyed some pasta with family and friends. Great service, food good. Just walked in and got great table in the window. All the pasta and pizza dishes were hot and served quickly. Great to just pop into.

The food here is decent Italian stuff. I'd recommend you go for the Pizza or Crepes which are good value. The Pasta, which we have tried a few times, is average and not as good value. My only criticism is that they only have one child's high chair in the restaurant, so there's a good chance it may be being... More

Brilliant every time. Travel to Villars regularly and our first stop every time is at Le Francis! A little taste of heaven.

Good quality food lacking in service. Feels like it needs a good clean and upgrading tables and chairs.

This place is perfect for a family with kids. The portions are just right and the quality is very good. So is the price! It is especially great for lunch.

I have been visiting this popular restaurant and bar for 30 years! Great for all ages! It is a good meeting spot for visitors and locals alike. The owners are friendly and the service is good. Enjoy for lunch or dinner. I've done both!

I had a very bland pasta dish on the first visit which was offset by a really great tom soup the next.

Le Francis is not a fancy place, but very homey. Locals mostly at the bar and families in the restaurant. unsurpassable Gnocchi plus delicious pizza, salads, and yummy bread. Service was fast, prices fair, and staff very friendly. We went there in 2009 and again in 2014 and we had the same wonderful experience. An easy walk from all the... More

We felt like a crepe and called into this restaurant on the spur of the moment. The service was excellent with an extensive menu. However our desire was for crepes. We ordered and received our meals pretty quickly. Could not fault the service or quality and would highly recommend it to anyone

We went for crepes which were ok. The service is fast and friendly. We did not try the pizzas... Some other time, its a easy bar / restaurant to go for a bite, nothing gastronomical but decent and good.

Thank Olivier M
