Lovely evening

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

We had a wonderful meal here two nights ago - it was recommended to us by a local resident , and totally delighted to find such a quaint medieval village so close to where we were staying . Access to the restaurant is on foot through the twisting , winding and stone cobbled walkways which bring you to a pretty... More

This small family owned restaurant offers nice, even if not always Provençal kitchen, but who cares, food is amazing. We came here with friends and were treaded like kings. Prices are good for a location like this. Keep in mind that this place is not for wheel chairs and men, mind the step in the toilet ;-)

Excellent friendly service and welcome. Fresh, creative and delicious food without pretention. Cosy and charming decor. Some people criticise the lack of choice but I prefer fewer choices but fresh, home made food than a larger choice of frozen, shrink-wrapped and tasteless food you get in so many other places! Definitely recommend and will be going back.
