“Excellent food”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Great menu and great service. They offered something off menu for our daughter who does not like the typical kids' menu offerings!

“Great beach”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Cheapest and nicest spot on the beach to rent beach chairs. Comfortable chairs, central, friendly service. The lunch was a bit average (we ordered salads) but go here if you want to spend the day at the beach (EUR8 per chair including umbrella from midday).

“Excellent seafood”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

On a recent 3 day stay in Menton we decided to have lunch in this beach side restaurant. I am so glad we had not read any of the Trip Advisor reviews. If we had we would not have considered eating here as the reviews are so terrible.
I really am astounded at how totally different our experience was. We loved the place, so much that we returned the next day for lunch.
The mixed seafood was excellent, really delicious and at €18 it was cheaper than the awful seafood dish we had at the nearby Cote Sud restaurant. Although it was not on the menu the lovely friendly waitress said the Chef would be happy to prepare a Salad Nicoise for me and it was really fresh and flavoursome.
The White House wine was very good and reasonably priced. My only criticism would be that the wine waiter was very unfriendly and rather superior but we just ignored him and enjoyed the lovely food and the great view!
My advice to anyone reading this review is ignore all the negative comments and go along and judge for yourself. I hope you will be as pleasantly surprised as we were.

“Bad........very bad.”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

This used to be a fantastic restaurant by the beach. Since its change in ownership is has gone downhill very quickly.

While very disappointed in it last year, I gave it the benefit of the doubt - a bad day or still settling perhaps. I returned last week and it was a complete horror story.

15 minutes for the someone to turn up to seat us at our booked table. But it got worse - a further 20 minutes before someone can to take even a drinks order.

The menu has been expanded from what was very simplistic, but great quality. Now it is lots of choice, but the food that is produced is very poor. Wile we were there three other tables send food back!

We tried to order drinks. Proseco - none, although on the menu. Half bottle on the menu - none left (we are June not the end of the season!) we finally ordered rose by the glass with ice. The waiter then really finished my day off by pouring ice from a used ice bucket into our glasses and then was not happy when we sent them back!

Such a sorry state for a place to get into. The worst is, it may just survive because of the unsuspecting tourists that will make one off visits over the summer. But I suspect, not for long.
