With seating in and outside - and lots of parking close by this place is well located in Sospel. We enjoyed a very good lunch offer (19eur for starter, main and dessert) at a table outside. The food was very good and the owner (I think) was offering such good service that we will be back another day for sure.

My wife and I found the meals here were some of the best, most artistically presented and delicious meals ever!

When you walk past this restaurant it might not seem like much, as from the exterior it is quite unassuming. We had the opportunity to try this upon a friend's recommendation and we were not disappointed.. When we went it was a special menu so all guests had the same, but it was still very beautifully presented and the portions... More

We came up to Sospel to escape the tourist crowds on the seafront and had a lovely surprise. The terrace was full however it still had a calming and relaxed atmosphere. Everything was full of flavour, beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. Great value for money and it was so nice to see a menu with no trace of pizza or... More

We were passing through Sospel on a really hot day, were so very lucky to pick the Relais with its beautiful shady garden next to the river. Excellent welcome from delightful hosts, delicious three course set lunch al fresco, could not have been more pleasant. Will be back soon I hope.

The power of the parasol! We happened to be driving by on our way to Turin at lunchtime. As the yellow parasol was up outside we parked up and walked back over the bridge to this restaurant. What a great decision. We sat outside by the river on a terrace below road height. We each had the €19 set menu... More

The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We ate in the garden area which was very pleasant. I had salad and the truite au limon with frites and courgettes and creme brulee for dessert. It was delicious. I'd eat there again if it wasn't so far away.

I'm really grateful for finding this place, interior was really elegant and nice. Food...just perfect. I went there with my boyfriend, so each of us took different plaits. 6 fresh and delicious masterpieces + wine... Also price was quiet good, we spent 60€ and we where full. After nice lunch best thing to do is to visit Sospel, which is... More

We had a lovely, romantic evening at Le Relais du sel, so much so that my now fiancé decided it was the perfect place to propose...and it was! The staff were very accommodating despite our insistence to sit outside in the beautiful garden on the river following a very wet and rainy afternoon. The food was of a very high... More
