Best meal in Roquebrun Cap Martin

We ate here one evening on our stay in the town and it was fantastic. Some of our party of four were a little apprehensive of the menu which we looked at online ahead of our visit, fearing it may be a little heavy but those doubts were quickly put to bed. This was superb cooking, with the... read more

Discovering the quaint village of Roquebrune was a subtle pleasure that culminated in a wonderful dinner in this restaurant. A tiny "hole in the wall", a dimly lit cave redolent of centuries of history and mistery, taking the cue from its name, Grand Inquisitor, whose grim mock portrait hangs at the entrance, may apparently be designed to inspire terror.

Restaurant came highly recommended both on-line and from personal recommendations. It didn't disappoint and was one of the highlight meals, among many other very good meals, on our entire Europe trip. Walking thru the old medieval village of Roquebrunne sets the perfect tone for this restaurant. The entrance is almost hidden among the many passageways. We were warmly greeted and... More

Super cute restaurant in the heart of Roquebrune village. Very small made of stone and lovely wooden tables and the kitchen is on the other side of the street.... The menu has a choice of 4 entrees and 4 mains (and desserts of course!) and they change it a couple of times a year. The owner is lovely and it... More

It is amazing how just two people can produce such great food and service. Super atmosphere and a real taste of the area. The loo in the cave was great too!!

The perfect number of selections so that attention is paid to each item. Wonderful meats and poultry. The feeling while dining is of being in an intimate Medieval dining room, romantically lit and cozy. There is nothing contrived about this, and one owner/waiter takes care of everyone beautifully.

Charming small restaurant with attentive and considerate husband and wife team. Generally very good food, though can be a little pricey. Recommend to anyone who wants an atypical and romantic experience.

Au Grand Inquisiteur was recommend by an America friend living in France. I trusted his judgment, so we took a taxi from Monte Carlo to Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. After getting lost in the winding streets of this quaint village, we finally found our destination. As soon as we stepped inside, were felt transported several hundred years as Grand Inquisiteur is two small,... More

Just one week before leaving the Menton area, we found out about this restaurant. You'll need a reservation and have to call after 5:30 p.m. to make one. The restaurant is set in a lovely and small medieval town. Parking isn't easy to come by and it's a few minutes walk up hill to reach it and it's worth the... More

Au Grand Inquisiteur, it was not just one or a few characteristics that made the dining experience memorable, but a magic combination of every aspect of the process that created an impression which will last a lifetime. To fully explain this, first we have to get there: We were staying at the Vista Palace high above Monte Carlo and Roquebrune... More
