La Terrasse has always been a rooftop restaurant we’ve looking forward to visit. And finally, the day arrived. Our table was set and ready at 20:00 in good time for the sunset and evening breeze.
One of the best things that La Terrasse can boost of with, is the amazing view over Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and the boats in the bay of Villefranche. This is one of the best and most beautiful views you can get in France. You have to see it live to understand how lovely it is. Hopefully we can bring about a little of the magic in our pictures.
The vibe is very sophisticated and calm. A perfect setting for a romantic dinner with your date/partner or just a harmonious dinner with friends and family.
We decided to share one starter and two main courses. As the restaurant focuses on fresh and local ingredients, we ordered a mozzarella/tomato salad, “catch of the day” and an artichoke risotto. Wow! The food was great! Fresh, well made and presented in a nice way on the plate.
For drinks we had a Negroni and a glass of Champagne before the dinner. And then we shared a bottle of white wine to the food. A perfect combo of drinks that suited very well. White wine and “catch of the day” are always a good idea.
La Terrasse at Hôtel Le Versailles is a gem on the French Riviera. The beautiful views and the luxurious setting make this a perfect rooftop to visit when in Villefranche or close by. It’s worth taking a detour just to experience the terrace and food.
