Wonderful location, nice ambiance, beautiful setup and good service. Unfortunately the food does not have a character and is below expectations and so several times.

The restaurant offers great views over the sea and city. Located a 15 min walk along the sea from teh Casino, it's worth trying out! We all had appetizers (3 each and we especially appreciated the Vitello tonnato and the Parmigiani). Followed by starters where the spaghetti and the risotto could please us the most. Best mains were gamberoni, Saint-Pierre... More

Alain Ducasse is one of the best chefs in the world so rest assured you won't regret going to this casual Italian. Polished service, delicious food, breathtaking view of the bay. Pizza and risotto are to die for. Relatively reasonable prices--it is in Monte-Carlo after all.

It is at the premium location just beside sea. Started from 7 dish appetizers. All tasty. A lot of seafoods are used in Seafood pasta which was great. Lamb was very nice, too. Ordered only half bottle of wine but when it is served it is too cold to drink red wine. It become much better when it become warmer.... More

I don't understand how TripAdvisor ranks restaurants.. how can this be 38/79 in the Monaco list when it has a "very good" rating (overall) from 28 reviews? It doesn't add up! And why is L'Argentin in the top 5 when it doesn't even have a permanent chef (it's going to become Nobu soon anyway!)?! Just doesn't make any sense... In... More

We came for dinner on a rainy Tuesday night. We had been in Italy for 10 days prior and had eaten a lot of great food, but this took it to a different level. We started with some charcuterie that was good but not incredible. Then the antipasti came out, highlighted by some thinly sliced, slow roasted veal in anchovy... More
