Italian charm meets Monaco glamour at Twiga Baia Beniamin

Flavio Briatore’s Twiga restaurant chain has proudly unveiled its newest locale in the Italian seaside village of Mortola Inferiore. Twiga Baia Beniamin, situated close to the Giardini Hanbury and around five kilometers from Ventimiglia, blends the quintessential charm of the area with the signature glamour exuded by its Monaco ancestor.

Situated in Mortola Inferiore, just over the border in Italy, Twiga Baia Beniamin is the latest incarnation of the Twiga franchise owned by Italian businessman Flavio Briatore.  

With other locations in Monaco, Forte dei Marmi, London and Doha, the Twiga hospitality brand stands for excellence, offering a “home away from home for a sophisticated, cosmopolitan clientele” looking for high quality food and service.  

The Baia Beniamin, which will officially open on 28th June, aspires to carry on this tradition with a beautifully simple and fresh menu inspired by the Mediterranean and its setting on the coast in the Italian Riviera.  

Starters include favourites like a Niçoise salad and fried calamari alongside other delights like Luciana-style baby octopus. A raw bar, featuring Tarbouriech oysters, sea bass tartare and salmon tiradito, a Peruvian take on sushi, adds to the taste sensations. 

The mains selection doesn’t disappoint either. Hearty lobster and seafood paella sits alongside a range of light grilled choices, such as Alaskan king crab, langoustine, lobster and sea bass. Meat eaters will enjoy the Wagyu entrecôte or the generous burgers. 

Desserts are tempting too, with tiramisù on the menu, of course, as well as pistachio ice cream and fresh fruit.  

The décor is exactly what one hopes for in a beachside eatery, with white linen tablecloths and comfy director’s chairs under cooling canopies, all overlooking the sea. A live DJ adds to the beach vibe.  

Twiga Baia Beniamin will be open daily from 12pm to 7pm. To make the new destination more accessible from the Principality, an exclusive boat transfer service will be on offer. It will be departing every 20 minutes from the Yacht Club de Monaco. The journey takes a short 15 minutes.
