We spent a few nights in Bordighera the end of September, and for my birthday we had chosen Chez Louis because it had the nicest setting, with table cloth, nice interior and a nice terrasse along the Corso Italia. When in Italy one has to have pizza, and it was one of the best ones! We had a couple of... More

As we sat down we were given tatty english translations of the menu. This restaurant is getting tired. The pasta and clams were good but I wish I could forget the seafood salad. You can eat much better for the same or even lower price in Bordighera. The service was half hearted and distracted.

We ate here 2 years ago and had forgotten how good it is! The service is unbeatable, the staff so friendly and the food.... Go for the homemade pasta in rocket and tomato sauce. We even requested brochetta and were not charged for this! They definitely know how to win back customers - we shall return!

We have had four fine lunches at Chez Louis in the past several years. While our Italian base is in Alassio, we very much enjoy traveling up and down the coast. The restaurant is just two blocks inland from the train station on the very pleasant Corsa Italia. We have always been greeted with great courtesy and warmth and have... More

This is a good choice - located on a nice side street with a good menu - they offer a lovely bread to start. The Risotto is excellent

We happened upon this place and noticed that they had Croque Monsieurs on their welcome board; that sounded good to most of us so we decided to try them. We asked for a seat and were treated fine at first. However, the waiter who took our order seemed distracted and was extremely rude. When the first round of food came,... More

From my point of view, Chez Louis is one the best italian restaurants situated in Bordighera, between San Remo and Ventimiglia. My warm octopus salad and spaghetti alle vongole was cooked to perfection, wonderful lunch. Excellent service with typical Italian warmth. Reasonable price. Chez Louise certainly merits 5 stars. Highly recommended.

From the first moment we arrived we were treated like family. Located on a main street, Corso Italia, we enjoyed people watching; expert service and reasonable pricing. Mauro and Louis are fantastico!

The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. We ate there on both nights of our stay in Bordighera. On our second visit, we asked to buy a bottle of water to take back to our hotel and were given a complimentary bottle - as well as a glass of gorgeous Limoncello.
