This is a great little place for live music on a Friday night! We had stumbled into it 3 years earlier on New Year's Eve and had a fantastic night, packed in with lots of locals enjoying a really great band. So on a visit back to Villefranche this January we booked ourselves in so we didn't miss the regular... More

For us it was more about the atmosphere rather than the food which was great. We had a panini and a coffee on our way back from Nice to our cruise ship which had anchored nearby.

There is often live music here at night and it adds to the fun, homey atmosphere. I love the burgers, served so many different ways with local cheeses and perfectly cooked local vegetables. The fries are great, too. The wine list is complete and not pricey. It's a terrific restaurant to take the kids or to go as couples at... More

This is a great discovery!! We just came here for a quick coffee and wifi and were surprised by the delicious and big panini. I work on a ship and don't have a lot of time, so here the service is fast, the wifi is faster. Like I said, the food is fresh and the coffee is great. Will come... More

Gad already eaten in Cosmo, heard some great music, so thought we'd pop by. A local group of 4 French lads - Karma (Lead singer, drummer, base guitar and lead guitar) were jamming to a sizeable group in snd around the bar. Did not eat here but the portions looked very good, especially the salads. The drinks flowed well with... More

Enjoyable and busy late night bar where we always seemed to end up most evenings. Did not actually eat here, but appeared generous portions for those enjoying a burger type meal. The live music on Friday evenings was really excellent and should not be missed

Been coming here every year for 6+ years, and each time we've found it to be a friendly, buzzy place to round off the evening. It doesn't really get going until mid-evening onwards, is a mix of locals and visitors, attracts all age groups, and this year has started to hold music evenings where live musicians/bands play. It opens until... More
