Nice food great service and good wine.

We had dinner at Le Petit Prince one evening while staying at the hotel in July. It was very pleasant and our waiter was very helpful. The food and wine was very good, the deserts also finished off the meal nicely followed by a nice walk along the beach front.

Food was good enough but the service indifferent and it is definitely not worth the price. Better avoided!

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.

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...
