After a nice and personal welcoming we had a delicious three course lunch together with friends. We like the atmosphere and we'll come back for a revisit if we visit Menton again.

We have just returned from eating at the restaurant, very mediocre, very flirty and presumptuous service and very long time to pay - forget this restaurant. Lived here since 20 years - so I know that in Menton good restaurants are REALLY hard to find. But there are a few better than this

This Restaurant with a tipical Corsican cuisine where you may taste a roasted young pig. It was interesting to try their degustation set but on my point of view little bit expensive for the plates which we ate.

We visited as a group of friends. We were only given the a la carte menu to start with although a set menu was clearly advertised outside. The set menu appeared quite quickly after one person got up to check the board outside. Only a small point but it set the tone. The restaurant was busy and there were clearly... More

Nice Sardic Restaurant. The owner couple are very service-minded, Pascal at the moment acting as chef and Caty as an "overall helper". Eat inside or in the outside warm "tent". Both fish and meat worthwhile trying, or the fixed meny.

This is a unique small restaurant with a Sardinian flavour. The restaurant can be found in the center of Menton, a minute from the beach. Combination of fantastic fresh food with a welcoming atmosphere where each guest is a treated as a dear friend won't leave anyone indifferent. We keep coming to this restaurant five years on end and each... More

Our favourite restaurant in Menton. Ate there again tonight and the food was excellent as always. I had the "Couchon au Lait" which was very good and my wife had pasta with gambas which was also excellent - they will adjust the cooking of the ingredients as you wish; my wife does not eat cream and they changed the dish...

We regularly spent our holidays in Menton and it was the second time that we had dinner in the restaurant l'Ulivo. We loved once more the food served, but the service was really poor tonight. It took ages until the manager came to get our orders, then we had to ask for bread even though it took quite some time... More

We have previously been to Menton, and had seen this restaurant, but chose instead to eat at a nearby sea front restaurant. Finally today made good our previous mistake. Wonderful food and very nice atmosphere. The majority of the other diners were local people and not tourists, like us! The house speciality is roasted suckling pig which my husband thoroughly...

A day trip to Menton from Nice - stopped for lunch at L'Ulivo in the lovely Place du Cap.The sun was shining and the Sardinian owner was friendly. We had the delicious Jamon, mozzarella and figs as a starter followed by fillets of sea bass as the plat de jour. An excellent lunch in a delightful setting.
