If you're visiting the region & looking to sample some genuine provincial french cuisine in a traditional restaurant setting, A Braijade Meridiounale is the place! We had the full degustation menu with each course accompanied by various wines, all masterfully selected by the chef & owner & for my wife & I, it was the complete taste sensation. Everything from a cold aubergine soup Foie Gras, Oysters & Scallops through to Flaming Brochettes of Beef & Prawn, individual cheese plate & an amazing dessert surrounded by seasonal berries. All the courses were perfect in size so it was enough to taste & appreciate without being overwhelmed. The service was extremely helpful, very knowledgeable & courteous. As far as fine dining is concerned, it was comparatively excellent value. Thoroughly recommended & a highlight of our time in Menton

Great restaurant in old town Menton. Best food and service we had during our visit to South east France. Waiter, chef and owner were very friendly and helpful, something that seems to be in short supply in that part of the world.
Food was fresh, well presented and oh so tasty! Palette cleansers between meals was a nice touch.

This fine little restaurant is somewhat secluded but once you find it, they offer some of the best Brochette (vertical skewered dishes) in the area.

It is one street in from the main Quai road at 66 Rue Longue. Best idea is to get a parking spot below the Catherdral in the parking area adjacent to the marina. You can walk up to Rue Longue via stairs rather than going through many other restaurant possibilities.

We recommend this as a nice, quiet place for a romantic meal served by the owner. They have a special appertif with orange, red grapefruit and lemon to start and many choices of fine meals to follow which have a tasty preparation made from Zuccini flowers.

This restaurant is situated in the heart of the old town of Menton on a beautiful lane way. We went here because of the trip advisor reviews and it didn't disappoint, we had a warm welcome from the head waiter, I have limited French and the staff had very little English which made the experience even more authentic. There are a lot of menu options so it took us a while to choose, the food is very interesting and extremely tasty, they have a unique way of cooking their meat and seafood. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and will be returning next year. There are menu options for all budgets and the head waiter will treat you like a regular, he gave us lots of tasty home made shots on the house.

Maybe not easy to find, and the menu might need some effort to decifer, but what an encredible treat this is. The very friendly host and chef serves encredible local brochettes with gamba, veal, lamb or beef. We visited with a company of four and all had a different brochet from the 26euro menu, which was accompanied with a terrific starter and even included great wine and apperetives. A highlight of our already wonderful visit to menton at the cost of less then 130 euros total, coffee and desserts, also fantastic, included. TRUE GASTRONOMY.
