I go here at least 3/4 times while I'm in Menton it is the best place to eat. Amazing food, really nice staff, the decor is gorgeous it's just a dream place. Anybody who visits Menton has to go

We decided to visit Cote Sud because of good reviews and it seemed popular. The visit was however disappointing. The service was ok, but it seemed a bit to busy and we did not have the same waiter once. The food was served after just a couple of minutes after ordering, which i would say not is a good sign...

Our hotel made our reservations and suggested inside dining. When we arrived the hostess offered a choice--- inside or outside. After viewing the inside table, we chose that--- quiet with views of the outside. My husband selected the grilled mixed fish dinner and I had the mixed meat. Both were very good. Service was good--- never rushed but attentive. Splurge... More

In spite of being very busy this is a very friendly restaurant. The food was good but the place was quite crowded with very little space for each table.

Our good hotel recommended this restaurant, and we are glad that we listened. Obviously also a popular place also for the locals. Had to wait 10 minutes on a bench outside before we were guided inside. Good atmosphere and reasonable prices for food made by dedicated people.

Four of us had dinner here tonight. Each of us ate something different and each of us found the food very, very ordinary. There's a large menu which has interesting choices, but the ones we chose just didn't impress. It's a pretty place and it was busy. The service was good and the welcome warm. I don't think we'll try... More

We have had a brilliant holiday in Menton and tried many restaurants. Cote Sud shines through. Not the most expensive and certainly the best. Cote Sud is located opposite the port and if coming through the pedestrian area on the left past the water drinking fountain. There was s small queue to get in which was gratifying. We ate inside...

Crowded when we arrived but seated immediately. Courteous and efficient staff. Menu with both Italian and French choices which we enjoyed very much. I don't know why ratatouille is so hard to find in France, but this was the only place we had it during a two week trip, and it was absolutely delicious. We would definitely return.

Have eaten at Cote Sud on around eight seperate occasions in the last two years and the food has been excellent every time. The calamari is a great starter for two people to share and mixed grill, calzoni or pizzas also excellent. The staff and owner are extremely friendly and work hard in a very busy restaurant. I took a... More
