Great seafood by the sea!

One of the best restaurants in the area. Great menu: short and sweet using seasonal ingredients served in a creative and aesthetically pleasing way. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and welcoming. Highly recommended!

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.
