Very good quality seafood, and the waiters were very kind as well. We needed to change tables and they offered free champagne for our pain. The seafood entree platter was the size of a main dish. And the seafood pasta was just perfect. Excellent food experience, on very good prices. Warmly recommended.

This is an excellent restaurant in Menton offering very fresh and tasty fish. I had a superbe dish of shellfish and the best grilled tuna I ever had.

I booked a last minute table at 9:30 pm on Tuesday 12th July for three of us. As always the staff were exceedingly friendly, the wine was excellent and the "dishes of the day" recommended by the proprietor were really good. I had white bait with a fried courgette flower and the two guys had pasta with scallops and mushrooms.... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. We were seated quickly without reservations. Service was good and lots of locals or either return tourists as most were greeted by name. My husband had the fried fish platter and I had the spaghetti with lobster. Both meals were good. Their taramisu doesn't rank up at the top of all I have had this... More

So good we ate there three times in three days! We ate there as a couple, with the family, and with another couple for lunch! Each time the service and the food far exceeded expectations. We strongly recommend this wonderful restaurant to anyone living or visiting the area!

We arrived at an empty restaurant without a booking. The owner went through the charade of pretending to do us a favour by letting us have a table. The restaurant was half empty all evening. The food was ok but we have eaten similar at a fraction of the price in other Menton restaurants. Service was good but staff somewhat... More

What a great restaurant! We were greeted warmly and loved the atmosphere of this place. The waiters are very nice and really knowledgeable about the menu. We both had the burger after reading good reviews about it and were immediately glad we did. It was cooked perfectly. After our meal we were given a complimentary digestif, a grape type drink...

We visited last night, our last in Menton this trip, and went to Le Galion based on the reviews. The service was enlivened by Tony, a very effective and hands-on proprietor, who ensured we had a great evening, and we enjoyed smooth and efficient attention from our lovely waitress! The food was outstanding. The flavours were subtle and delightful, the... More

Our second visit and even better than the first. We took two other couples who agreed it was well worth the drive from Monaco. An excellent menu and great staff who could handle our "off piste" requests. Wonderful ambience and a just damn good fun. 6 people, all we wanted to eat, 3 bottles of wine, lots of mineral water...
