An organic experience

We enjoyed this small restaurant thanks to their attention to the organic world. Very good choice of ingredients and wine, mostly organic. We picked fresh mussels (with no tomato, just garlic and wine) and a fresh lobster. With a good bottle of wine and two desserts we spent around 120€. Great... read more

The location was attractive. A small quaint slightly recessed piazza with Mediterranean foliage and charm. The restaurant had an external terrace but we decided to eat inside. Rustic well maintained decor. Abundance of natural stone and rustic coloured plaster walls, attractive vault type ceiling and terracotta colour tiled floor. We liked it. Kitchen was visible on way to loos and... More

We had a mixed experience at Carnival. At first we were underwhelmed by the indifferent service. We were the first of 3 tables to arrive and last to be recognised, seemed a little early in the season to be tired of tourists! However the food was excellent and the evening ended more positively.

Then we shared a mix of fried calamari ,shrimp and small fish and a green salad which came with it. The batter was delicate and the... More

Tucked away at one end of Menton near the Bastion in a pleasant rustic cellar. Efficient and discreet service. Majors on organic food (especially fresh fish) and a selection of unusual regional organic wines.

Not going back! The food was not very tasty, the Pasta was ordinary, only the "bio" wine was a pleasant surprise. Again, highly disappointing!

We took friends who were visiting us from San Diego to Carnival the night before they left for home. It is located in the Vieux Ville, or old town part of the city. The owner has maintained the interior of the restaurant in the old manner and it is charming. The menu is just large enough to provide something for... More

We went by chance to this restaurant near the water front and were very pleasantly surprised. This is the only "bio" restaurant of the city, but more than that it serves excellent produces. We ate wonderful lobster, steamed, not boiled. Everything we ate was good, and we would return there often if we lived in Menton.

The place is calm and wasn't full of noisy tourist just like other restaurant i've been to lately, and Chef Riccardo has been kind to have a talk with us... More
