This restaurant was at our hotel, and contrary to usual expectations that the hotel restaurant won't be very good, this one was surprisingly good. We ended up eating 2 of our 4 dinners here. The food in Menton was not great, except for the excellent lettuces and salads, with nearly every restaurant having a similar menu.

2* Michelin rated chef, and the food reflects it. Beautifully presented, good size portions, fabulously fresh produce and super value!! You wont be disappointed (and the wine is excellent as well!)

We had an excellent dinner here. The restaurant had a good, vibrant atmosphere and the staff were attentive and helped us with menu choices. The food was well presented, beautifully prepared and delicious (I had sea bass). We were staying at the hotel so it was convenient for us, but I would go to the restaurant for a fine dinner...

Have tried this place many times over the years, its not very friendly and the quality of food is variable. Thought would have another go because its so close to where we stay, mistake, nothing has changed, inflexible, classic hotel chain, shouldn't really be in the Michelin Guide.

We visited here with friends who live in the town and know the area well - it was their first choice for a quality meal, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is on the sea front, just across the road from the beach, so it's a great spot. We started with a couple of aperitifs outside in an area... More

The first visit was excellent both for food & service, but the second did not enjoy the the same degree of control over the staff. The Maitre D' was off and this was very noticeable with the service provided by the staff. Long waits between courses and no apology until I drew attention to this .Even so, the apology was... More

The food is expensive but excellent and good quality. Service, however, on a Sunday night was appalling. Insufficient staffing spoiled the evening

We ate here twice because we were staying in the hotel but the restaurant is not operated by the hotel (Prince De Galles). It was convenient on the first and last night of our holiday. We chose the basic set menu, which at 29 euros, should have given the chef some room to present a reasonable 3 courses. The first... More

My second visit to the restaurant, and I'm delighted to say I was entirely impressed again! We enjoyed an excellent meal in the garden, to the backdrop of lightning flashes out to sea. My mushroom risotto with truffle oil was delicious, and both the freshly-prepared cod & the grilled sea-bass were first-class. The desserts were beautifully presented & rounded off... More
