“Reservation strongly advised”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2011

Like the entire area, in high season there are not enough parking spaces nor tables at any restaurant to accommodate the swarms of people visiting this part of France. That said, the waiter set up another table, across the road and dashed backwards and forwards, dodging the traffic to serve us our meal.

We opted for the Tapas for 4, which had much more sea food than we would have liked. If I were to go again, I would choose the dishes I wanted, not opt for the chefs selection.

Meal for 4 was a shade under 100 euros, so not really cheap, especially since we left a lot of it.

“I love this place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2010

The staff are always friendly, even when you push them for a table when they are fully booked - ( this is unusual in France where you are frequently made to feel that restaurant staff are doing you a favour).

The food is all home made, very reasonable and delicious. The intimate rickety tables, the background reggae and the offbeat staff all contribute to its unique atmosphere.

Price: Family of 5 including wine in August 2010 €65

“One of my favourite restaurants in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2008

Visiting Menja is a must each year for our family when we come to south France on holidays.

Tapas, mojitos, very original decor, fun and friendly staff - what more can you ask for?

It's not a star Micheling restaurant, and it doesn't claim to be so don't go there expecting lobster with truffle sauce, it is just a cool place and we can bring the kids too which is a bonus.

I should also mention that the restaurant is in le Racou, which has one of the best beaches in the region so it great to spend the day on the beach in Racou and stop by menja on the way home for an aperitif .... or early dinner.
