“good food, great time, wonderful place”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were twice in this restaurant during our holidays. A very good main dish for 2 persons - a mix of fritto misto and grilled sea food. Home made desserts - very nice. But if you want to have a table on the terrace it;s better to reserve in advance. Well, just excellent food with beautiful sunsets.

“Best food from Genoa to Nice!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Maoma was recommended by our local B&B friends from Nice Cathy and Michele- always a good sign. The fish is so fresh and was superbly presented. The meal was spaced out in Italian style giving lots of time to enjoy each course, and the restaurant is right on the beach with crisp ambiance. Absolutely delicious food here, highly recommended! We had a sea food dinner with the most wonderful wine you can imagine and our host Alexander was helpful and amazing in the attention to details…delicious!!!!....this was fantastic with a beautiful sea setting it is a must! Probably the Best food from Genoa to Nice you will ever experience! Do not let the size of Maoma fool you….the food is the main attraction along with Alexander!!!

“Great Beachside restayrant even in the rain”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We have been visiting Maoma for several years now through different ownerships. It was a great shame when it burnt down a few years back and remained a wreck for a long time. It has now been re-built and in a great location by the beach (or rather built out over it) at Bordighera.

The new design inside is not as good as the old one, however they have produced a very good outside eating area lower down plus a bar area (with WC and shower) in the beach level area under the main building.

Going there on the 1st september this year was very interesting. The temperatures were still very high, but the heavens opened around lunch time.

That did not put the helpful staff off from looking after everyone, including providing blankets for the female diners.

Food and wine was excellent as normal, we both had fish and as it was Saturday lunchtime also a starter and dessert washed down with some local wine.

Towards the end of our visit, the sun came out so we could take a walk along the road adjoining the beach and other restaurants. There was hardly a sole about, most unusual for a Saturday in September, but it had been raining a lot.

We will certainly return and it is very popular with locals and the French who cross over from Menton and beyond which is only a short distance away.

“Great local beachside restaurant”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Maoma was recommended by a local and filled with locals- always a good sign. The clam and mussel starter was superb. The meal was spaced out in Italian style giving lots of time to enjoy each course, and the restaurant is right on the beach with a crisp, chic style. Overall an excellent place.
