One of the two new three stars in France, it is set above the Mediterranean sea close to the Italian border with a stunning view.
The food, even though the Chef comes from Argentina, is modern, classic French, reflecting his work at places like Arpège and Ducasse in Paris.
The menu is tilted heavily towards vegetables from their own gardens (3!), combined with fruits to add acidity and sometimes luxurious ingredients like caviar. The only meat course, the pigeon was perfectly cooked with a beautiful texture.
I have eaten Mr. Colagreco's food only in collaboration dinners and pop-ups in London so it is hard for me to judge if he had lifted his game so he was awarded the third star. However, what I got this evening, did not make me regret the journey I took to come here.
Great pop up dinner by Mauro Collagreco and his team at the NH Hotel in Madrid
At this pop up dinner occasion a menu called the “Roots” was served with 3 welcome tapas, 13 courses, amuse bouche and wine pairing. Each course appeared with elegant plating composition, exciting textures and perfect timing with the selected wines.
Probably the technology of the Mirazur dishes were a bit too complicated for the kitchen facility of NH Eurobuilding. But despite of the challenging circumstances we have sampled fantastic dishes. The Mirazur in Menton is an incredible chef driven restaurant with excellent cuisine and an extraordinary culinary experience.
Lovely service all along, with an enthusiastic team who even on the last day of service were performing 10 out of 10. We are looking forward to our next trip to the french riviera.
Amazing and delicious dinner at Mirazur, with fresh produce from the gardens and nearby. One of my best meals of the year.

Dinner last Thursday at ⭐️⭐️ Mirazur in Menton. Having visited Mauro Colagreco’s restaurant 6 times now over the years, its been a bit of a rollercoaster. Generally it’s good. You don’t reach #4 on the 50 Best Restaurant list by having a bad restaurant (although mediocre restaurants have been known to approach those heady heights
