Enjoyed a lovely lunch in the sun/shade at La Maison de Beaulieu. All four of us had the lunch degustation menu which was excellent value for money. Tartare of Scallops (Coquilles St Jacques) or Zucchini flowers followed by Locally caught Daurade or ravioli.
All delicious. The tiramisu (also included in the menu) was a little short on coffee and cake for my liking. Ample free parking as after 1st September.
The African Queen next door was heaving. We were well looked after and blissfully happy on an uncrowded terrasse. Go figure?

Should you find yourself at Beaulieu-sur-Mer at lunch or dinner time, pay a visit to this place and enjoy their menue gourmandaise. Your palate will like it, for sure.

Service here was excellent and fully worthy of the maximum rating given. Less successful though was the value as it did not provide anywhere near enough of it, suffering as it did from what could be called 'Riviera tax' in that prices are inflated because of its location and a captive audience: Three average-sized scallops for €20 is simply not justifiable while €48 for a bottle of Pommerol, although the wine itself was fine, was over the top given the quality that can be found not 100 yards away. Considering one of us had the special menu, it is not unfair to call a bill of over €140 steep.

The food was good overall, the scallops aside, and the carpaccio starter arguably the dictionary definition of "hearty"; the sea bream my wife had was good while my steak tartare (something of a recurring theme this visit) more than acceptable.

Overall, worth a visit but once you're outside the special menu the cost escalates dramatically, moreso if you want to drink fine wine and then you could be looking to the stratosphere for your final outlay.

We went to La Maison de Beaulieu for lunch with my friend.
Actually, wanted to have a breakfast and were looking for a place, but no one restaurant was serving breakfast, only coffee. It was 11-30 a.m. and all restaurants in this area are open at 12 p.m. We couldn’t wait because had to go to airport. We tried to check with couple of places next to La Maison de Beaulieu if they can start to serve food earlier but nobody could do it for us. And only La Maison de Beaulieu did! The very nice waiter speaking on the several languages met us, gave us the table outside (the weather was super) and promised to serve us as quick as it’s possible (the time was important in our case, and they kept promises).
We ordered Salad Niçoise, Salad with Goat cheese and Homemade Foies gras. Each of these dishes was very delicious, and very special. And despite the fact that all 3 dishes were cooked very fast, they were served in a very nice way and with real care.
Salad Niçoise – we took 2 times in the other restaurants in this area. In one of the very famous restaurants located close to La Maison de Beaulieu I was told that everywhere this salad cooked with canned tuna except very expensive restaurants. And, what was the surprise when I saw in the menu “Salad Niçoise with FRESH Tuna”. The way of cooking was exactly what you expect, Tuna was a little bit seared outside and raw inside.
Foies gras – the day before we also tried homemade Foies gras in the other place. It was good but I even asked my friend what is the difference compare to the Foies gras which we are buying in cans? But Foies gras in La Maison de Beaulieu was absolutely different. It was warm, more tight then from the cans, and no concerns that this one was home made.
Goat cheese, was also very good.
We also took wine, were suggested to take Chardonne, it was matching with food so good, starting with 1 glass only we finished the whole bottle.
The farewell lunch was just amazing present from St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat!!!

On a perfect sunny evening we had dinner at the La Maison de Beaulieu. Although the restaurant was very quiet, the service was very slow and the food was very average.
