One of the better restaurants in Menton

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.

Really tasty food and it was in my opinion fine dining. They have put lot of thoughts also prepentation and the food looks awsome. But more important it tastes really good. Bit of expensive place (at least for us) but if you want good food and bit of classy dining, this is the right place. Highly recommend!

We were staying at the hotel so it felt a bit unadventurous to eat there but we were so glad we did. Great menu of the day and lovely setting and service. You might be tempted to walk on down the front but I you won't find a better restaurant.

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
