Been here twice now, absolutely love it. The atmosphere is fantastic! The food and drinks were amazing, great service from the waiting staff. Food arrived quickly which was good. Music was good and later on live DJ starts - perfect for sitting down in the lounge area with a cocktail! Tip: Reserve a table in advance. We booked for 8pm... More

Amazing decor & ambience - stunning food - great service. Only complaint is food came far to quickly before wine arrived so didn't have time to enjoy! (But the first bar where we had pre dinner drinks we waited over 1/2 an hour so i shouldn't complain) Loved the menu and will return to try some other items.

I invited some friends to impress them and they were indeed impressed. Very nice decor, very polite service. We chose their signature menu and enjoyed every bit of it. Had to bottles of Pouilly Fuissé and paid a total of 500 euros. It was worth it, would definitely go back.

The decor is impressive and the cocktails are very good. No comment on food as didn't order anything to eat. In my view, the music played by the DJ was random, disjointed and detracted from the general experience.

Truly enjoyed our night out at the Buddha Bar. It was our first time to go to one and have since found there are quite a few locations. This one is in the building that houses the world famous Monte Carlo Casino. We had one entree, one salad and fried rice. Plenty for two.

This is a classic in Montecarlo, as it was for me in Paris. It's a very good place for an after dinner drink, even if of course you can eat there, and so go for dinner too. It's quite expensive but the service and the atmosphere are over the top. You can meet famous people, as well as the best... More

This place is located just up the hill from the Fairmont Hotel, on the way to Casino Square. We stopped in 3 times on 3 different nights during our Monte Carlo adventure. All 3 nights the place was packed with a line at the door...A few kind words and a smile, to the door men, from our Leading Lady got... More

Just another copy of the Parisian original. Expensive drinks, loud music and lots of men showing of way too young girlfriends. But hey, this is Monaco
