An Absolute Surprise In A Port Restaurant Surrounded By "Just Average"

What a surprise. The usual port restaurant was a greasy spoon BUT not Le Petit Port. Just across from the Cocteau Museum in a quiet street we had a lunch on the tree covered terrace. The menu was a chalk board with the fresh fish of the market. Loup, Turbot, Dorade etc. This being Menton we went... read more

It seems to be very difficult to find a restaurant in Menton with consistent quality (except for Mirazur, of course). Disappointingly, Le Petite Port did not show any excellence for us. There is a feeling of long history of family held business in this restaurant. We don't know if that in fact is the case, but it shows with lack... More

Popped in on the off chance andvwere lucky enought to get a table, in future I would book. A great little spot near the harbour with great ambience. Food was excellent, but beware portions are not small. Good wine list and not too expensive, €120 for two including wine.

We ate here during our honeymoon in france/italy. The location is super nice, very intimate and cozy. Its a bit outside the tourist path, so the location is calm and relaxed. The food is great, and apparently a lot of locals eat here. We ate grilled steak (tender and perfectly grilled) and duck wich also was great. Vegetables were perfectly... More

Menton is very strange place when it comes to good restaurants. There are simply no good ones. They all are very touristy and poor quality. Le Petit Port is a welcome exception. Menu is very appealing and food is exceptionally delicious + 'innovative'. 'Innovative' because it is close to experimental for example figs with Italian ham and basic ice cream... More

Amazing food, warm atmosphere, a cozy home environment. The friendly, family-run restaurant: Mom in the kitchen and the husband and wife serving guests. I love everything in this restaurant. I was here for lunch and dinner, but especially cozy and romantic here in the evening, at dinner.

We walked past this restaurant which is close to the main old marina. It very slightly off the main road as it passes past the marina. We were accommodated quickly but there were no seats inside on a busy Saturday night. They lent my girlfriend a shawl to keep her warm. This was very much in keeping with a relaxed... More
