Not to be Missed

Cote Sud is better value than most and we have found the food well presented and delicious. Madame and the staff were friendly and quite efficient. It is a place to sit "exterior" and enjoy the sights amongst the clientelle and passers by. Make sure you book ahead!

The restaurant looked inviting and we'd seen the queues previously. What a disappointment - staff very pleasant and first course ok but worried immediately as it arrived so quickly. Took a breath and the main courses of whole sole were dumped in front of us - zero presentation skills and didn't actually smell too good. Discussed with the Manageress who... More

We ate at Cote Sud 3 times during our visit to Menton and we were very satisfied every time. You'd better make a reservation, because the place seems to be fully booked all the time.

We were recommended by a friend and were not disappointed with the food We both had grillade mixte de la mer. With coffee and wine the bill was 76 euros. I just felt that it was all a bit too slick. I think in future we may stick to somewhere where the "beautiful people" have yet to discover.

We ate here on our first eveing in menton. The location catch the very essence of the french riviera, with a close view of the beach promenade. Tables outside are close, but still very cosy. The restaurant looks nice and elegant, and they have been able to create a very plesant "room" to eat in. The restaurant is busy, and... More

Usually very crowded and rightly so. The dishes are unusual and extremely good - and at a very reasonable price. Cheap carafe wine, attentive staff. Our best Menton restaurant this year.

Had an amazing dinner here in Menton. I had mixed grilled fish and the fondant and it was incredible. My partners food was amazing too. Fab service, great wine, varied menu and decent prices. My only fault was that our meals came out at different times. Otherwise amazing! Set coming here again!
