I recommend this place for location and service. Wine was good too. But the pizza wasn't so good. Starter was good. I think you should go for the more traditional plates, but not pizza.

We have been customers of "Côté Sud" since they opened ten years ago. We were always satisfied, except for one bad experience in summer when they were just overwhelmed. The creativity is constantly improving. One of my favourite dishes is the "Fritto Misto". Served in a paper bag , a wink to "Fish and chips", it is not fat, fried... More

Went on a Sunday without reservation. Good choice of vegetarian food, not just pizza. My daughter had children's menu of chicken and chips for 6.50, which was good for a huge portion. Lovely homemade bread and friendly multilingual staff. I would definitely go again.

We were in the mood for pizza and this spot looked popular, so in we went without reservations. They found us a place on the terrace and recommended not to share. Probably a mistake -- the pies were huge and delicious, with that thin light crust you find in this area. Very friendly host and servers.

Everything about this place shows charm & creativity - charm from the personnel, creativity in the menu - a warm if uncomfortable atmosphere ( uncomfortable seats! )- cosy lighting & a very happy clientele.

A popular and crowded restaurant - tables are very close together. The menu takes a while to read and covers meat, fish, vegetarian, light meals, pasta and pizza. My husband had a pizza (good but not exceptional). I had sea bass fillets with a citrus salad - nicely cooked and presented. Service was brisk and efficient. Nice location overlooking the... More

The restaurant is a terrific place with Italian cuisine like many others in a border city of Menton. But it's the attention and service that make a huge difference. Plus the food is delicious, the view of the bay is stunning and you can't find a better place in the area for the same price.

Love this restaurant as it is always buzzing with activity. Have enjoyed several meals here since we first started holidaying in Menton 6 or 7 years ago.

First time in this restaurant, but what a pleasant surprise. Great service, rapid, friendly. Huge pizza, well furnished with all toppings, very good greek style salad, nicely presented (the plates at other tables looked very pretty, too!). Good bread to go with the salad, vinegar and oil and condiments come with it to adjust your own dressing (much appreciated). The... More

Very fresh variety of tartar mixed with fruits and avocado. Good service. But hard to find a table without reservation
