This is a restaurant I have passed for many years without venturing in, purely because I had a favourite restaurant nearby. However, we ended up here last night and what a great place! The welcome was amazing: always a good start. I had a buggy and they moved around furniture to facilitate it. The staff are both pleasant and super... More

Simply, this is our favorite restaurant on the cote d'azur . Classics perfectly prepared and a menu that changes with the season that features new and exciting classics "with a twist" - our latest meal (we go at least once a month - from Nice) was a saffron rissotto with carpaccio of salmon, another fish and scallops. Divine. My pasta... More

We have been eating at Cote Sud for almost 10 years, whenever we are in Menton. The pizza is very good for being in France, and would compete favorably with pizza across the border as well. The rest of the menu has become more limited and more pricey; the price/quality is shakier than it used to be. On the most... More

We had dinner several times at the Cote Sud during a week's stay in Menton in February 2014. On each occasion the food was excellent and there was a very extensive menu with choices ranging from pasta and pizzas to emperor prawns served with turbot. So, we didn't need to make our minds up about the type of meal or... More

Great looking staff and helpful although might be an advantage if one... More

Very nice restaurant with kind and efficient staff. Suitable for any occasion: romantic dinner for its soft atmosphere (especially inside), and with friends. Food is very good quality in Italian style (Pasta, meat, fish and of course great pizza and to conclude... desserts are fantastic! Price in the average.

I visited Menton in 2008 and in 2013. "Cote Sud" was really great and I really want to return to that beautiful restaurant again. I had on several occasions there - a risotto, pizza, steak, spagetti con tomato e basilicco, different deserts and so on. Everything is very good and delicious. Better make a reservation, cause every evening this place... More

This restaurant looks good but our experience left us empty and disappointed. Very clean and staff pleasant enough but seating too close together and poor attention to ordering made this dining experience one we have forgotten already.

€10 pizza was delicious. Always very busy. Go early (before 8pm) if you want a better chance of an outdoor table with lovely view. Staff dash about non-stop but service is fine. Staff are polite and speak a little English.
