Cote D'Azur views

Does someone have a recommendation for a lunch restaurant with as gorgeous a view as Chateau de la Chevre D'or but better food? I see from many reviews that it is very commercial, but my research also shows me that the view is outstanding! I will be coming from Monte Carlo and am able to go anywhere in that area (we have a car). Thanks!

  1. I'd consider Mirazur in Menton. Perhaps not quite as grand as Chateau de la Chevre D'or, but I really enjoyed my meal there and the chef has a great pedigree and received a fair amount of recognition from different publications over the past couple years.

    A more modest option would be Mandarine in the Port Palace hotel in Monte Carlo. The restaurant overlooks the port and having breakfast and lunch there during my stay was a highlight a my trip. The food was solid, but not necessarily destination worthy. This would be a convenient and lower cost alternative(compared to much of Monte Carlo) if one wanted a good view in Monte Carlo proper.

    Also look into Ch√Ęteau Eza. Don't have direct experience and can't comment on the food, but it does have a tremendous view.

      I second Mirazur, but you need to reserve and ask for a window table. The cuisine is as excellent. as the view.
