They charge 3euros per person for cover charge just to sit there but they do not even clean the table from the previous customer. They just put the clean silver and napkins. Service was okay. Very long wait between order and food to arrive. Food was okay but extremely overpriced. I wouldn't recomment to my friends.

This place is on the pretty main street leading up and inland from the train station. It has indoor and outdoor seating and is well known as a nice place for fine dining. The food is good and so is the service, some of the seafood dishes are very artfully presented.

We were very hungry, it was around 8.30pm and we chose because of the outside tables. There were plenty available but none for us, so we sat inside only to see that nobody arrived to occupy the outside tables! We were two adults and 2 boys of 15 and 16. Starters were very good but, unfortunately, only 3 mains (pasta)... More

A really nice restaurant with a wine list, to die for. The personnel know what they're doing, so you'll be treated as a GUEST and well guided through the menu.

Enjoyed the bread and oil before lunch and both our pasta dishes were excellent - washed down with a glass of dry white wine and followed by good quality coffee.

This was a repeat visit, after last year's lovely evening at Luigi's, and we were not disappointed! For my birthday last year Luigi had given me a nice bottle of red wine of which I had taken a picture once back home. I showed it to him this time, and man, he remembered where we sat, ONE YEAR AGO!

Every year we go to Bordighera and every year we eat at Chez Louis. We always like it there. You get personal attention and the food is very good and often surprising. The waiters are very kind. The owner recognises us always and that also helps!
