La Martina is probably the best of the half dozen or so restaurants in the Place du Cap, albeit by a small margin over Le Stanley. We had very good attentive service -- the key distinguishing factor. Cuisine is Italian but of course their French dishes are equally delicious. In common with most... read more

This typical Mentonaise restaurant serves all the classics in a small square in the old town. The set menus are good value and the cooking good (if not perfect) for the type of place. The highlights for us were the desserts! The service is friendly & efficient.

Excellent food, friendly service. The Salade de Pulpe is highly recommended. The two set menus are very good value for money if one takes into consideration the quality of the food.

One of us suffered the next day because the sauce was split & the veal not very good. The other meal was satisfactory being a risotto. The service was initially unwelcoming but this did improve after we had ordered.

We had a wonderful meal at Le Martina, with the best Tiramasu I have ever eaten. Their fixed menu had fairly good prices.....house wine was excellent, service was great. They have many outdoor tables and a small inside area. Dinner for 2 cost about $80 including wine. We liked it so much that we came back from Italy early to... More

A very quick dinner late in the evening. Too late, maybe, as the personel behaved very disinterested. Escalope was swimming in sauce and champignon, we assumed just 20% of it was meat. The fish and spagetti was OK. My entrecote was not tender at all and did not deserve the 16€ pricetag.

I have lost the invoice, but remember freshly presented moules after a delicious risotto starter. My wife had rabbit after a salad starter. we both had home made crème caramel to finish with. Somehow the 1/2 litre of wine ordered became a litre but what the heck the bill including the wine came in at 57 euros. Well worth it.

Based on reviews, stopped for lunch when in Menton recently. Risotto was bland, and I was not provided with pepper or parmigiano cheese, nor was I offered any bread. Based on the quality of main meal, I decided not to order dessert. Surprised when I spoke french and asked for "robinet" (tap water), to be offered mineral water instead each... More

On first pass Le Martina was full on a Tuesday evening, however the staff promised a table in 20 minutes. 25 minutes later on our return, the table was set and ready. We both ate from the fresh pasta menu, and both meals were delicious. Inked ravioli with calamari and ravioli with asparagus and scampi. A very nice meal in... More
