Hostellerie Jerome – Michelin star

 Italian side (if staying in Eze or Villefranche sur Mer or Monaco)

 'La Caravella' in Ventimiglia – genuine Legurian cooking. 

 'la Cicala' in Bordighera – really great place - again Ligurian fair.

 'Terme' which is in Pigna about 25 min drive from Ventimiglia, but isn't very posh but very special for fresh mushrooms which are in season - 

 'Da Vittorio' in San Remo centre, a classic Italian – so many amazing reviews - highly recommended.
