At the foot of the mountains overlooking the sea, a stone’s throw from Italy and the old border post, the 1930s-era rotunda building housing the Mirazur enjoys an idyllic setting.
It spreads over three levels on the hillside, surrounded by lush vegetation. The elegant, spacious and light-drenched dining room commands a panoramic view of the sea and the town of Menton through the large windows running all the way around.
On the lower ﬂoor, the bar with a view of the glassed-in kitchen where the brigade is at work extends into a small terrace.
Down a few steps, the orchard garden full of fragrant herbs and citrus is a precious source of inspiration for Mauro Colagreco when dreaming up his dishes.
Through his personal interpretations of ingredients and ﬂavour combinations, Mauro Colagreco has forged a style of his own. He has absorbed his Italian-argentinian cultural heritage and that of the chefs with whom he trained, and now follows his intuition as he draws on the local culture on both sides of the border.
Inspired by the sea, the mountains and the fruits and vegetables grown in his own gardens, Mauro invents colourful, pictorial dishes that play with textures and bold contrasts.
