We were looking for a decent place to eat that had a menu that was a bit different (many places more or less had the same food - often Italian food). We saw Mandragore and liked how pretty and homely it looked. One of the staff (a very friendly French lady) tried to translate the menu and explained that it... More

Discovered Mandragore some years ago on a holiday in Menton. Have been back 3 times in different years. Food always fresh ingredients, freshly cooked and served with a smile, and at a reasonable price. There is often a musician playing nearby which adds to the pleasant ambience. Next time we are back in Menton we will have lunch at the... More

We had a lovely lunch here on a sunny day in early October. We had catch of the day. We enjoyed this as well as the excellent creme brulee with orange. We have previously eaten at a couple of the other restaurants in Menton town square but this is our favourite. Seemed very popular with the locals we were the... More

A local artist, his wife and son run this very popular restaurant in one of the prettiest squares in Menton. The food is delicious and beautifully executed. The whole experience is one we look forward to repeating as soon as possible.

Un endroit calme et relaxte, un petit resto romantique, tables rondes. Flowers on the table. You can chose out of 4 courses, all of them freshly cooked. We tried some mentonnais fries and chopped vegetables. Delicious!

This little restaurant is placed among several big machines serving typical tourist food. The place itself does not indicate the qualities: a short but well thought menu, changing frequently and just written on a board. Just room for 12-15 guests. The service is nice, the food is good and you just feel you have made the right choice when sitting... More

La Mandragore offers a limited daily menu of really good local food. The dish of the day is around 14.5 euros but for another 2 euros you can have a pudding and coffee - both to the same high standard which offers excellent value for money. Authentic local food is, in our experience, quite hard to find in the this... More
