Every time we stay in the area we make a detour up to La Turbie, the views are wonderful, the nearby cheese cave is excellent and for special occasions the parent restaurant Hostelle Jerome is a must, but for simple bistro lunch or dinner this place is marvelous and guaranteed well executed food, the tables are close but if they...

In case you want to eat as the locals do: this is a great place. There's no chi-chi cha-cha, just good and tasteful home-made food at reasonable prices. I had to smile when I was reading some other reviews of people who expected 'a night out'. Already by its name it's a 'Cafe', a Bistro - and that's exactly what... More

Visited this restaurant lunchtime in the picturesque village of La Turbie, just north of Monaco. The service was good and the Beef Daube served with French fries (15 euros) followed by cheese (7 euros) was excellent. The house 'Pichet' red wine was good and complemented the main dish and dessert. Worth a visit to this typical Provençal restaurant.

We drove up from Monte Carlo to La Turbie with an old friend of mine (Bruno----Thanks!) who has moved back to his roots in Monaco. 'Cafe' was his idea, both for the restaurant which was wonderful but also for La Turbie which looks like it stepped partly out of some medieval time warp….worth a visit therefore not just for the...

Recommended by our B&B owner. If you want a posh meal then maybe this isn't for you? But, as a foodie who has eaten in some of the best restaurants in the world this was certainly my favourite, if you are spending some time in the area. As it would appear most peoples! if you hadn't booked a table and... More

Considering this is on the outskirts of Monte Carlo we expected something much better than this! It was rustic to say the least. The food is good home cooking and some of it is tasty but that is about all. It's really nothing more than a French cafe, definitely not a "night out"!!

Seldom are we compelled to visit a restaurant twice (especially when its two nights in a row), but such was the quality of the meal, we just had to! We were recommended this restaurant and were not disappointed. Even though they have a limited menu, (it changes every day), I struggled to make a choice as it all looked so... More

La Turbie is a local village north of Monte Carlo. It dates back to the Roman Empire. Le Cafe de la Fontaine is a a local restaurant that caters mainly to locals. The decor is simple and chances are good you will be sitting right next to other diners. The menu is basic with dishes that reflect the local cuisine.... More

I like this place, really nice simple food, good friendly service and well priced. I recommend a stop if you are La Turbie and want a nice, simple fresh meal.
