This restaurant is truly spectacular everything from the food, to the courteous staff, and the view. I left this restaurant feeling like it had gained a spot in my top favorites. If it is weather appropriate, I suggest you reserve a table outside, which can be tricky since there are only 5 tables. The inside is very simple and since... More

Mid October and still having on the terrace over the sea. What a romantic site. Looking across the water to Menton with the lights twinkling over the water. The owner in the kitchen doing what she has done for decades putting out perfect plates with the best sea food extant. Franco the head waiter and son-in-law came over with a... More

Located on the waters edge right at the border with france, Balzi is a real favourite. In the summer the terrace is amazing and during the winter, inside is warm and comfortable. Sophisticated Italian food served beautifully and a nice wine list. Helpful, friendly staff who don't rush you. Not cheap, but it's easily the best around here!

The ambiance is superb we were seated on the terrace in July it was perfect. Our wait staff was fantastic, our every need and desire was immediately attended to. The food was incredible from the salmon sushi to pineapple ravioli everything prepared and presented so beautifully, the wine list is excellent as well.

What a great spot. An impromptu visit, fortunately a table was available for us inside. Beggars cant be choosers. We had the prix fixe menu,: a perfect tasting journey. Although the food was fantastic, the service was the highlight for us. If I could provide 5+ stars, I would. A team of 5 servers looked after our table, all in... More

Italy has this magical touch, that gives you an automatic smile of the face when the waiter welcomes you with his italian accent. And I will say that the smile never comes off your face at Balzi Rossi! The food is delicious, the wine goes perfectly with the food when you take the time to listen to the recommendations of...
