Fodor's Expert Review Cosmo Bar

$$ Villefranche-sur-Mer Mediterranean

Facing the Cocteau chapel with an enviable view of the sea from its terrace, this modern brasserie could easily get away with being merely mediocre. Instead, it serves fresh, colorful Mediterranean dishes ranging from an addictive anchoïade—crudités with anchovy dip—to omelettes. It's a favorite of English-speaking expats in Villefranche and it's easy to understand why, since it brings together all the ingredients that make for a casual yet memorable meal on the French Riviera. Call ahead to be sure of securing a coveted terrace table.
