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.

This harbourside restaurant below the old town, with its delightful grey & white décor is different from the many same same restaurants in Menton. A local lady from Monaco who shared my train carriage, gave me its name. I loved it so much, I went there for dinner on 2 evenings, sat outside sipping Piedmonte or Bordeaux wines, nibbling bruschetta... More

The menu was wide and interesting but we opted for a simple lunch with friends: pizza was their choice, just superb ingredients and very good quality. I opted for a salad, where the grilled calamary were juicy and tender, grilled to a tasty perfection, mixing with the freshest ingredients. Great brown bread and a rosemary focaccia. Dulcis in fundo, a... More

This restaurant is a must when u visit Menton. Lady of the house is absolutely adorable, and the food is very, very good. Really loved their meats and their pizza. And the atmosphere.
