Excellent; if we consider the setting, the efficient service, the position, the view, the choice and quality of the food for a menu at 28euro which is the expression of three generations of experience in the same restaurant.

We enjoyed our meal AND the staff at this restaurant. As others note, the view is wonderful. As others noted, the lady may not smile much, but she's more like a mother figure, making sure things are going well and the customer is getting the proper service. The food isn't like my mother's -- which is a good thing. Very... More

in 27 years we've visited this restaurant about 6 times. Each time giving it a new "chance"; this time it was really the last. The Lady (owner?) is still the same, uninviting, unsmiling ... The menu still the same .. "Sole en Croute and Sauce Hollandaise" ??? 2 small filets of Sole in a Bread cut in half (called Burger... More

We went as a group of 10 non French speakers ( but trying hard,) We we're welcomed, and the restaurant was full of 'locals'. The food was great, although the consistency of the cooking of the steak was a little off. Overall though a great place for a meal in a beautiful spot overlooking the sea.

This food in this restaurant was really lovely. The view across the bay there is magnificent. The decor is typically French style. However main problem with this restaurant was that the service was dreadful ,front of house was miserable and very unwelcoming lady I made you feel that you were doing a favour by being there. Went back the next... More

Very good food- wife and daughter had the sole meunière and raved ! I had the chateaubriand which was excellent. Only downside was the rather slow service but would definitely return.

We spotted this restaurant as we did the coastal walk around Cap Martin and were glad we decided to stop. The restaurant has a beautiful setting looking out over the coast to Menton. We opted for a set menu which included an amuse-bouche and dessert and spent a relaxing two hours. The restaurant has an excellent range of fish and... More

This restaurant is perfect in the summer for swimming off the rocks under the restaurant & lounging on the chaises longues . The staff will bring food to your lounger. A place for private sunning & decent food. I liked the Parma Ham & melon - you can get away with 18 Euros plus water & coffee for lunch. This... More

The place is what we all seek - calm, seafront,sun, turquoise water, wine, laughter - this has a price - will you pay it ? That's the question.

After walking the coastal path from Roquebrune, this is the first cafe/restaurant after rounding the headland. And what a treat! Went in for a coffee, but seeing the meals others were enjoying, stayed for lunch, which was exceptional. And a great location by the sea.
