My husband took me to Le Petit Port to celebrate my birthday. We were curious as we read that the Mirazur chef likes eating there which suggested a high recommendation. The actual experience was profoundly unpleasant. This was not because the food was awful but the way we were treated as customers. I always believed that the star of the... More

I paid 110 euros for dinner for two: Fish (30 ueros) , steak (28), a bottle of wine, two digestivs and a bottle of water. After spending a week eating in quality Paris restaurants like Remy and Vintage, I wasn't expecting the same standard but for the price quoted, I was expecting something of merit to justify the price -...

My wife and I went here for dinner because we had read it was a good place to go for fresh fish. It was. We ordered Sea Bass for two. An excellent choice, not cheap, but fresh fish, as opposed to frozen, isn't. The service was cheerful and attentive throughout the meal. The there was a good range of wines... More

On the recommendation of our hotel, we booked our last dinner in Menton. They promised us an excellent meal in a traditional family run restaurant and didn't disappoint, AMBIANCE Charming decor with roomy tables. Feels like you are having dinner in the family home of the owners. Perhaps a little to much lighting. FOOD Each course was unique, delicious and... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and they made the reservation for us. It doesn't look of much when you enter, but the food is absolutely divine. There were local people with their children as well as tourists, and you know, that when there is local people dining there, then it has to be good, and that it... More

I went here for the first time a few weeks ago. This is the best place in town for regional specialities - their tarte au citron is second to none. It's quite small so it's a good idea to book in advance if you want to go in peak season.

After being recommended to this restaurant I can't help but come away disappointed after eating here. Initially greeted with a warm but superficial welcome we were seated at a good table. When we came to order and management saw only a light bite was wanted interest and service waited For the price point, food selection and location, give this one... More

My wife and both had "Loup de Mer", sea bass. It was excellent, perfectly cooked, succulent and fresh. Clean food, no sauces, marinades or other things that could mask mediocre quality. The fish was served with simple fresh vegetables and roast potato The location is OK, with a busy road nearby and cars parked next to it, but as the... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotelier at the Napoleon. It was so good we went twice. The service was second to none and very friendly. Le maitre was most charming and had a real passion for his food My wife has a severe allergy to dairy and eggs and so it is usually so difficult to accommodate her.... More

We had a lovely lunch at Le Petit Port. I highly recommend the Turbo. The atmosphere and service were wonderful. The owner, Gabby Santucci, and his family are very welcoming. The menu has a good variety. I recommend lunch at Le Petit Port for a relaxing lunch for those avoiding the usual tourist haunts.
