Restaurants in the south of France?

I will be spending a month in Villefrance near Nice, very close to all the cities. Any suggestions for high-end dining (or fun, casual dining) is welcome!

Thanks in advance.

        I spent a week in Nice a couple of years ago. I enjoyed these two a lot:

          For a good value higher end experience, you could get the train to Cannes where La Palme D'Or does a lovely lunch including wine for about €75. You can ask for a table on the terrace overlooking the Croisette / beach but this can be quite hot in high summer. Food is refined / modernised classic.

            Le Louis XV, Monaco. Chateau Eza, Eze-village. Fleur de sel, Cagnes-sur-mer. L'univers-Christian Plumail, Nice. Les Bacchanales-Vence. Hotel des deux rocs, Seillans. Bastide St.-Antoine, Grasse. Le Candille, Mougins. L'Hostellerie du Chateau, Le Bar-sur-Loup. Clovis, Tourrettes-sur-Loup (annoying music, though). Some may be too far away for you without a car. I don't know Cannes. I wasn't too happy with the food at La Mere Germaine in Villefranche, but it wasn't bad, and it was fun to sit outside in the moonlight watching all the luxury cars with Monaco plates arrive and be whisked away by the parking valet!
