“Excellent food and friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We went there for our last night out in Ventimiglia and weren't disappointed. It's a lovely setting, the host was very friendly and the food was excellent. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for. We had the octopus and lobster salad starters, and fritto misto for main-all top quality and fresh.

“the best!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We stayed in Menton (France) and visited Ventimiglia couple of times. I've found this restaurant on tripadvisor and decided we must visit.
It is short walk from the main part of the town, and it was very beautiful across the bridge.
The restaurant is very nice and quiet and filled with local people (some of them leaving just across the street, I think it says a lot!). I ordered the lobster risotto and this was absolutely amazing! The best food during the whole trip. The starters were also very good and tiramisu was a fantastic finishing accord to the perfect dinner.
Will highly recommend!

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We saw this restaurant on trip advisor and it made our trip to Ventimiglia worth while. The owner was very welcoming, providing an excellent service and providing great advice. The food was very good, particularly the lobster salad and the squid dish. Children were welcome and they are happy to adapt any dish for them. We sat on terrace, but the decor inside is really nice and modern. We would definitely return if we lived in the region.

“Great find!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We had a day in Ventimiglia during a stay in Nice and we'd seen this restaurant on Trip Advisor and thought we'd give it a try. It's away from the hustle and bustle and great little find. When we arrived it wasn't that busy however it soon filled up and was very busy. The meal we had here was probably the best we'd had in our whole holiday. It wasn't cheap but was well worth the price. The service was great, helpful and friendly. Would thoroughly recommend. Top tip - book a table outside.

“Spledido!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

After having searched all over Ventimiglia to find a local no tourist-trap-restaurant we found this excellent oasis a stone throw away from the market area. Not only the best friture mix we ever have tasted the owner Olivier himself added something extra. Nice, friendly and very professional. We will highly recommend a vist!
