In Carnival they serve a salt baked fish witch I strongly recommend. Here you always get´s fresh fish and good pasta. If you want to have a dinner or lunch that does´t dig too big holes in you pocket, they also have a tasty and...More

I have never had a bad lunch at Carnival. If you are looking for sophistication, pass your way. If you like fresh fish or seafood cooked the Italian way, you will enjoy your visit. Lunch on the terrace, under the pergola and close to the...More

Tucked away at one end of Menton near the Bastion in a pleasant rustic cellar. Efficient and discreet service. Majors on organic food (especially fresh fish) and a selection of unusual regional organic wines.

Not going back! The food was not very tasty, the Pasta was ordinary, only the "bio" wine was a pleasant surprise. Again, highly disappointing!
