The reservation was made for us by a regular customer of VII's. One of her favourite dining spots.We were early...the first to arrive that evening so it was very quiet until it filled up. The decor is minimal but attractive. Flowers candles and linens for the tables which are well spaced but few. The service was helpful, knowledgable and very... More

A restaurant with lots of ambience and an attentive and informed waiter who speaks good English. We had the 4 course degustation menu and whilst there was nothing wrong with the food it did not rise to any great level. Each course was satisfactory but lacked imagination and creativity. The wine list is quite small and a bit expensive. Overall... More

Very professional waiter who looks after your every need. It's a small restaurant and a very good one. The food is delicious and the "formule du jour" (if chosen) makes for a very good value, but top quality, meal. An excellent meal, cooked perfectly, and served in a lovely intimate room.

The restaurant is small but the service is pure excellence and the food is exquisite! The sommelier who is also the only waiter is very knowledgable, speaks three languages and looks after you all the time! Prices are fair!

My husband and I ate here for the last night of our holiday. Very well presented meal, not enough choice and no pre dinner drinks apart from wine. The one waiter was very busy but polite. It could have benefited from air conditioning as the evening was very hot. Still, these criticisms don't detract from the excellent food.

Went here ahead of a concert so had an early meal at opening time. I had mentioned this when booking and the waiter remembered. We were welcomed and looked after by a singe waiter, who was the only front of house person we saw. Small restaurant, air conditioned, excellent food and wine selection. There is a four-course fixed price menu,... More

This is one restaurant where the preparation and the serving of the food becomes so important to the team that the social side of eating has almost been forgotten. True we came for the food and we did indeed get great food on every dish supplied, but there is more to a restaurant than its cuisine and the whole event... More

This restaurant is a real gem; we visited there twice during our stay in Mention, and it provided us with the most fantastic food and service. We were there on Thursday and Friday nights and were not disappointed on either occasion; the attention to detail, the presentation and the flavours were exceptional. On Thursday we chose the least expensive wine... More

If you want a break from the more frenetic side of Menton life, this is one very good place to go. Only a couple of minutes off the main tourist footfall, Le Sept has a cool and calming atmosphere, combined with very good food (from a rather short menu) and excellent service. And if you need to go by car,... More

this was a very good restaurant in terms of the standard of food which was undoubtedly very good. however I did feel it lacked any atmosphere what so ever... we went on a Tuesday night last week and there was one other couple..... a bit pretentious, waiter all over us when we were leaving: shaking hands etc...... the set menu...
