Nice evening out

We were 3 adults and 2 children and went around 7 on a Saturday evening without reservation. It did start to get really busy as we were eating. The decor was nice, waiters were friendly, homemade bread. We had a generous portion of french fries and all had pizzas. They seemed to be a little cheaper... read more

My husband and I are regulars at this restaurant. The food is always delicious and fresh. We love the seafood platter. Cote Sud has a great atmosphere- it's fun and stylish with a lovely beachy decor. The owner and staff are always super friendly. They are even happy to welcome our well behave dog. They have a wonderfully friendly and... More

This restaurant is to avoid at any price. It looks quite nice and whoever has written the menu is a genius. When you read it, you really want to order everything. Regrettably, whatever you will order will be defrosted, reheated and honestly bad. One of the worst restaurants in Menton, definitely.

I recently moved to Menton and have been to this restaurant many times. The food is delicious and the staff are extremely friendly and you can see that they are knowledgeable and enjoy their jobs. My husband and I have tried many restuaurants in Menton and none of them are even close to as good as this one. Both my... More

Here you have the creation of a charming Italian lady who started this lively restaurant after a separation with her husband & she now has a restaurant full of life & happy eaters with an imaginative menu, rare to the Cite d'Azur . It's located on the port with a large covered terrace & interior room with contemporary furniture. It's... More

Place is well situated in center of Menton (difficult to find close parking though). Inside is very cozy and warm, staff is friendly, italian speaking mostly. Food I'd say is average. Attempting to be pretentious, for me personally was difficult to find something that i'd like in the menu. Let's just say if you want simple tastes of italian cuisine,... More

I spent a lovely night with my family. The grilled fish is very very good, the atmosphere is cool but at the same time familiar. The location is in front of the port I was very satisfied by this restaurant

We were here just last week and I have noticed that there are many people who eat here. Well after we tried this restaurant, I now know why. They really make good food. I had a mixed grilled meat dish and I loved it. But the portion was so big, it is almost good for 2. I think this is... More
