We visited this restaurant numerous times and enjoyed every visit. The service and service were both great plus it is reasonably priced.

I went to Villefranche sur Mere to meet up with long lost family. We enjoyed a stroll around the port and seafront area. My family had travelled up from Nice about twenty minutes away by Train. We picked this particular because it was convenient. Also because I am a wheelchair user and it was nice and flat easy to move... More

Nice athmosfere, funnily situated in a stairway between houses, very friendly staff, but unfortunately much too greasy pizzas. The bottom of my pizza was very crispy and good.

The seafood pizza was excellent with lots of seafood and cheese, it was called the New York. My wife's chèvre salad was tasty with lots of cheese. We enjoyed the ten euro house wine.

I took 23 people to this fun and charming spot in the alleyways of Villefranche sur Mer. The service and food was great. We had about 80% of the entire outside area. Everyone had a good time. The 20 Euro wine was great, and we had a great mix of shared appetizers, salads, pizzas, and desserts. We would go back... More

On an evening excursion to Villefranche-sur-Mer from Nice, we "stumbled" upon Le Serre while wandering the labyrinth of streets in this picturesque town. Why this restaurant? Because it was full of people and the other restaurants were not - which usually means good food! We had a great meal of seafood with outstanding service. The staff were really engaging and... More

No holiday is complete without one night spent eating pizza on the beach! Great pizza, not a long wait despite a full terrace. Pleasant and friendly staff

Fabulous food, great prices and very friendly staff. We had the 3 course set menu for €18, can't beat the value for money and great tasting food. On a quieter street a few rows back from the main road, looks a bit rustic from the outside but we ate more than once here enjoying the lovely food watching the world... More

We were recently staying in Villefranche-sur-Mer and ate at this restaurant twice. It is located in the back streets of the town, so that reduces the prices as it is not on the main sea front. This shouldn't put people off as the place was packed every night. It is advisable to book a table in advance to secure a... More
