Sass is the place you would want to go for a drink after casino or dinner at Monte-Carlo. Always fully packed with people of different style / provenance / occupation. However if you ever wondered where all the people are at 22.00 in the night, check out Sass - they are all here!

Booked here for New Years eve with friends. Set menu of €390 a head so it was more expensive than its rival Buddha. Tables were very cramped together. Lots of prostitutes as per previous reviews. Staff were very stressed. I requested the fish course be changed and this was agreed. However on arrival we were given caviar and a salmon... More

One of the reasons why Sass is a institution in Monaco is that it's more than just a restaurant. The owners are very present, very welcoming and full of fun, the crowd is either young or rich or both. Food is very good, it's a classic upscale brasserie sort of choice, service superb, and an ideal spot for getting in... More

We decided to go there as a group after dinner at Le Bouchon next door. First of all like most places in Monte Carlo, it was very expensive. I am under the impression that if you do not order for a certain amount you will not get to sit down at a table. Luckily we had ordered copious amounts of... More

expensive food, rude service (in Monaco, a smile will cost you money!), lots of prostitutes and Russians of 'ill repute'... Only go there late at night and when already slightly drunk.

I don't understand the bad reviews online. Sass Cafe is an institution and all of the locals go here. David Coutlhard recently listed it as his favourite nightclub in MC - he prefers it to Jimmy'z and Cafe de Paris. Although strictly speaking it's not a club, it's lively and full of people of all ages dancing on tables, chairs... More

I was there with my friends. Well to say the truth. I cant have diner with people smoking chicha next to me. It just doesn't suit the theme of that restaurant. My food was ok but not impressive. I've had salmon but nothing so special about it. Music was good like all restaurants in monaco. The mood was fine as... More

Sass is a low key cafe in the middle of all the pomp and glory of Monte Carlo. It is very casual dressing and visited by "normal" looking people - not the plastic beauties that dominate the Monte Carlo landscape. You will enjoy a throwback to a NYC village cafe.
