Sea food pastas were very good and house white wine as well. Reasonable prices. Service or atmosphere are not that good.

My wife had sea bass. It was tasteless and either was not fresh or it was badly cooked. It was accompanied by a salad of old wilted lettuce. My tagliatelle was okay but advertised as with crevettes (prawns) it only had three crevettes. The waitress acted like she didn't want to be there.

Le Gambas Rouge is a cozy man-and-wife restaurant just in the outskirts of the pedestrian area in Menton. The menu fokuses on seafood dishes, but the best bargain is allways to go for the chef's recommendation of the day, which may include traditional fish-soup from Sicilia or delicious pasta dishes with swamps or seafood. The bill seldom exceeds 90 Euros... More

Delicious fresh fish and home made puddings in a pleasant side street with outside tables away from the main tourist drag. Sea bass and swordfish both with salad, two puddings and glasses of wine with water for just over 60 euros. Good value.

Yes, the service is a bit slow but the food was worth waiting for. It is all freshly cooked and the prices are about the cheapest around. Carafes of wine were nearly half the price of restaurants in the main squares only a few hundred yards away.

Went there last year and enjoyed a good simple meal. Went back this year and what a disappointment. Short staffed, poor service and the very poor quality ingredients were just thrown together. If my French language had been better I would have complained more.

Maybe we went on a bad day but it was a disaster today (Sat, March 2, 2013). The one waitress was clueless and slow and only had a few tables to take care of as many sat down, got tired of waiting and left. I don't think she has ever waited on tables and was probably filling in. We would... More

We have eaten here twice this stay in Menton and this is definitely the place to eat. Still the best value for money and still excellent service, different servers, same cook but the same service and food. Just brilliant. The Friture Misto is probably the best in Menton, the Pizzas and Pasta excellent and I had the Tagliata again which... More
