We pass through Menton as part of a bike tour from Genoa to Cannes and have visited Le Galion for our evening meal for the past two years. It's a great restaurant in lovely surroundings on the marina and all of our 16 guests were impressed with the food and the location. We're always welcomed warmly by the staff, are... More

We stopped for lunch here based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. Even though Menton proper was quite crowded with Fete du Citron visitors, the Garavan area was not and we found parking right near the restaurant for Sunday lunch. I enjoyed a bountiful bagna cauda as a starter, hubby really enjoyed his Coquilles St. Jacques. We both had... More

My husband and I had dinner at Le Galion last Saturday night. Le Galion is a family owned restaurant that provides excellent service and superb food. Our meal began with some savory pastries, followed by an amuse-bouche of salmon mousse, both offered on the house. My husband and I ordered oysters on the half shell for a starter. They were... More

last friday we went to Le Galion. We did not have a reservation, but we got a nice table outside. We ordered Prosecco (very good) and had linguine with lobster and Saint Pierre. We also ordered a bottle of Poully Fume Ladoucette. All very good. At the end we had expresso and limocello on the house. In a nutshell, very... More

Whenever I go to Monaco, I always have the pleasure to enjoy lovely lunches and dinners with family and friends at the Galion located in the lovely old port of Menton. Service is professional and excellent, the portions are large. waiters will efficiently brief you on both the specials and any missing menu items, and answer your questions with enthusiasm... More

Notably the best restaurant I visited in my stay in Monaco. After eating in Buddha bar, sass, and various other high end establishments this restaurant was a hidden gem. Great service in a family run restaurant and the food especially the fish and the steak tartar was incredible. the way in which the tartar was prepared at the table was... More

I went a couple of times to Le Galion, with my wife and -in other occasions- with friends, either Saturday night as well as Sunday lunch. The place is very good located in the port of Menton, minutes away from the Italian border and from Monte-Carlo. The food is great, diverse and high quality: fish, meat, pasta dishes... combining the... More

The atmosphere and food were of a very high quality, but what should have been a very special evening was spoilt by the unsmiling, unfriendly staff and a patron who seemed to make a profession out of rudeness. L'addition was presented 'service compris' and clearly we should have made a reduction.

A beautiful location in the port of Menton. A stylish and extremely professional set up. The service was timely and friendly. My recommendations of dishes would be: - Calamars salad - Tagliolini with lobster - and one of their wonderful homemade desserts A must try if in the South of France!!
