Restaurant & Grill
Casa Fuego is a place of joy and simplicity rhythmed by the pleasure of the Colagreco family.
Only a few steps away from the Italian border, the Casa Fuego restaurant will welcome you into a warm and chill atmosphere. From the terrace, enjoy one of the nicest views of Menton : the old town, the port, the Mediterranean sea, or choose an inside seat and benefit from an immersion in Argentina, with a view of the grill and the kitchen.
Strongly anchored into the Menton territory and using all of the treasures that it has to offer, Casa Fuego is working only with fresh and seasonal products and all of that using a short circuit. Some of the fruits and vegetables come directly from the Mauro Colagreco’s garden, placed a few meters away from the restaurant, whereas others come from the Menton or Ventimiglia local markets.
