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

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

We had walked by this restaurant in Menton several times, and noted that it was jam-packed each and every time. So we decided to try it, without reservations, on a Friday night in January. We showed up at 8 pm, and had to wait until almost 9:30 pm to sit down for dinner, but it was well worth it. Just... More

This restaurant is perfectly balanced from all standpoints: food, prices, atmosphere. Not too expensive, yet medium-high range. Not too chic to the point of "behaving", yet pleasantly trendy, not too much " nouvelle cuisine" approach, yet innovative specialties with a personal touch. I must confess, the few times we experienced something different, I mea.disappointing, just due to something wrong in... More

Have tried the Cote Sud Restaurant twice now, and thats enough. The food was average, but the service was appalling. 20 minutes wait for our table to be cleaned, and cutlery etc to arrive, and another 10 for the menu to arrive. The woman who owns and/or runs the place was understanding but really didn't give a damn.
