Fodor's Review

Avant-garde French cuisine by an Argentinian-Italian chef? Why not, if you're perched on the border of France and Italy, like this restaurant overlooking a cascading tropical garden and the sea on the outer edge of Menton. Mauro Colagreco learned his craft in Latin America before acquiring a solid French base with the likes of Bernard Loiseau in Burgundy, and both Alain Passard and Alain Ducasse in Paris. Today in Menton, he is a perfect example of the wave of young chefs

whose style has been dubbed "la jeune cuisine"; for him, the plate is a palette and each ingredient has its precise place and significance. His airy dining room overlooking the sea makes the perfect setting for this expressive cooking, which makes liberal use of those much-talked-about Spanish "techniques," such as spuma (foam). Set menus start at €45 at lunch and go up to €135.
