  • Le Galion Menton takes you on a "delicious journey across the sea"

The restaurant has been the culinary haunt among locals hankering for Mediterranean dishes since 1972.

Shellfish fragrant with herbes de Provence, sole meunière, roasted sole, lobster gragnano spaghetti or rack of lamb with a pistachio and apricot crust. A little taster of the dishes that Chef Alessandro Guglieri puts his love and passion into!

  • Pavyllon Monte-Carlo: "fine dining without the dress code"

Chef Yannick Alléno has stirred things up in the kitchen. The Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo restaurant may stand for excellence and modern flair but the patrons' wellbeing is a prime focus. That's why the chef refuses to put on any airs and graces in his eatery celebrating Azur dishes. All we can tell you about the food is that the sauce brings the ingredients together with flair. It's so good that Father Christmas may even book a table between dropping off presents!
