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.

We really liked this place. The staff made every effort to make us feel at home on a Sunday night... Excellent Gnocchi with black truffles, Milanese and then crepe Suzette washed down with a bottle of baron d'L which was half the price of the same bottle in monaco. It's in the new port which is quite pretty and there... More

I was told this was a good restaurant and I have to say they were right. The food is extremely good and the service very friendly. I would have liked to stay for deserts but was pressed for time. They were very accommodating and made dishes to suit the kids. I'll be coming back!

Excellent quality, well worth trying. Good choice of dishes and wines. Probably the best restaurant in the area with a large interior and equally large terrace overlooking the port. All the fish courses were freshly made and very tasty. The deserts were very tempting and the flambé peaches fantastic.

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...
