When I die, I hope to go to Beau Sejour in Gorbio. I have been going to this lovely restaurant for more than 20 years. Yvan, always the most indulgent of hosts, greats guests as his family’s personal friends. It is so beautifully decorated with a view out over the lovely landscape of Gorbio. And if you’re really fortunate, Yvan will play the piano as he frequently does on Sunday afternoon. Aside from the unparalleled ambiance, the cuisine is imaginative and just plain wonderful! His grandmother used to pick little nasturtiums to add that special touch to a fabulous crème brulee. It truly is my favorite place in the whole world.

What a lovely little spot with a genuine Southern France ambiance - well hidden from the mass tourism and yet no further away than some 15 min. drive from Menton. This was our second visit within 2 years - and though one ought to keep such a gem a secret - well, then we do think that our fellow travellers should benefit from our good experiences as well.

Restaurant Beau Sejour is located on the tiny townsquare of the medieval hilltop village Gorbio some 5 km North of Menton and accessable from this city or even better from Nice or La Turbie by means of the "Grand Cornice" that provides breathtaking views enroute and makes it a perfect touring day without backtracking. For some strange reason Gorbio seem pretty untouched by tourism and hence you can stroll the tiny village enjoying original medieval housing without the usual galleries and souvenir boutiques on each corner before sitting down either outside on the flower covered terrace or indoors in the beautiful Provence-style restaurant that offers a lovely view of the countryside through its giant windows. The decor is absolutely lovely - very romantic - and don't miss a visit to the ladies' for a decor-surprise!

The restaurant is family run and each member makes an great effort to make you feel well and serves you with a swift and welcoming attitude. The kitchen offers a Mediterranean style menu - not in the fancy style but well prepard and plentiful - and with the plates beautifully decorated with handpicked fresh flowers from the surrounding meadows. Actually, one of the specialities is deepfried flowers! You truly feel that the chef wants to go that extra mile to give you a special experience. Prices are reasonable - we paid EUR 27 for a 3-course luncheon. The restaurant is seasonal and offers lunch as well as dinner and is open from May through September. Do check up opening times spring and autumn though in order not to arrive to a closed door though. Reservations recommended.
