We went there for a glass of wine. It is centrally located in the pedestrian area of Mentone. Nice service but when you pay 4.50 euros for a coke I feel bad. Wines were expensive and not particularly good. The typical tourists' trap.

When looking for a lunch or dinner place you easily just walk by this place and do not look or sit down. i recommend eating here. We had pizza and mulles and our child had fish n chips. Location is great and service good, not too slow.

They offer 3 course menus for eur 23, quite reasonable. as a starter, you can choose a seefood plate - you will have oysters on it! The main courses are delicious -we tried all of them. One note: if you take the menu, the desssert choice... More

We decided to stop here as the place looked smart and the menu for pizza menu looked good. We were seated straight away and about 5 mins later our order was taken, the sparkling water came almost instantly, a guitarist was playing in the square & we began our wait for lunch, another table filled about 10 mins after us,...

My husband chose the salad Nichoise & I had a pizza , both our meals were delicious. However as the restaurant filled up we noticed other diners beside us waiting a long time... More

We were seated immediately on a busy Saturday night. Service was good. We both got pasta dinners which were very filling and tasty. No complaints from us!

We were in Menton for the Thursday carnival and after having done an awful lot of walking collapsed in here under their heater for drinks late afternoon. It's a friendly family run place. The attraction of the heater meant that we stayed put for dinner too so I was surprised to see it lowly rated just now. My starter of... More

Tourist trap just found it's face! Busy and with a lack of service , this place gave us not much but disappointments. Even though we spoke english to the waiter we were settled down with french menues and had to ask for english ones. Ordered 1 fish and 3 beefs, one of them with extra vegetables. We got one fish...
