It is not always easy to find a nice restaurant in Menton, specially during the Summer months but the Galion is great ! the service, the delicious food, the atmosphere, it is a real pleasure to go and seat outside on the terrace facing the harbour.

Never disappointed with the service or the food. Lovely holiday ambiance. Family owned restaurant and they always make you feel like family too. Great wine list and always great fish on the... More

The light and atmosfere given by the position (wright on the little and beautiful Menton Harbour) makes the place special, even in the evening . We were late and the car navigator couldn't find the place ( just follow indications for Port ) so we called. Kind Employees and owner gave us indications and waited for our arrival , rare... More

Lovely dinner. We had the crab salad as a starter and the mixed seafood as the main dish. My friend who invited to join us to celebrate her birthday chose Menton and Le Galion Restaurant for her birthday celebration. A cake was made for her and the restaurant even played a happy birthday song as they brought out the cake.... More

we had three meals at Le Galion. We were greeted by the exuberant owner and made very welcome. The menu was very Mediterranean, well cooked and very palatable. There was good selection of suitable wines and the service was excellent. We will be visiting when we next come to Menton.
