A hidden surprise

On the face of it, Avenue Edward VII in Menton is a fairly undistinguished street between the station and the seafront. But two-thirds of the way up on the right is this delightful restaurant. A friendly welcome and excellent food await you, and you can look forward to an excellent meal. Very good!

Off the promenade but worth the short detour a small pleasant quality restuarant with a small but delightful menu and excellent cuisine whether fish or meat or even vegetarian. The taster menu is a bit of a gamble as its blind, but looking at the main menu it is worth giving it a go. The deserts are excellent loved the... More

Made a last minute reservation and meal was very good. Service was excellent and food was amazing. First wine choice was not available but another was offered at the same price. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Distinguishes itself in Menton.

As a result of ta reviews we went out of our way to go to this restaurant. There was some confusion about my order which resulted in being served tough veal. When I pointed this out, my dish was quickly replaced by an excellent fish dish that was perfectly cooked. It wa accompanied by puréed caulflower favoured with vanilla and... More

This is a real restaurant I Menton. (There is not many). It serves good food. The service is good and the dishes come in a properly fashion. It lies on an ordinary street with much traffic which may be disturbing. The problem is that it tries to be a better restaurant than it actually is. The food is not quite... More

This is a small wonderful restaurant that is managed by only 2 people! We have been visiting it each year since it was open. Lovely! Excellent choice of products. A great chef. Simple and welcoming atmosphere. We can't wait to get back to it! If you are in Menton, don't miss it!

When he finally show up he gave us great service, the prices at the restaurant are about 5-10 euros more pr dish then the other places we have been to i Menton. So you expect a higher standard. We had the beef... More

We enjoyed a lot finding this place thanks to Trip Advisor. Not too far from the commercial food dealers, but miles away referring to food and service. We will come back.

We stayed in Menton for 7 nights in early June and found most of the restaurants disappointing.The Le V11 was the best we found but not the cheapest.We believe you get what you pay for. This restaurant is away from most other tourist restaurants in the area and was not busy when we arrived with only one other table for... More
