A most in Monaco

Buddha Bar in Monaco is a most, it is the place where a good dinner turns into drinks and party.. The place is big, somehow to big to be honest. When you arrive by car it is super easy as there is a very well functioning valet parking. The staff are extremely many and you do not get a personal... read more

Came here for a few drinks with my girlfriend. Had a very nice time. The place falls within the expectations. The music is great, the cocktails are delicious, different and modern. The decor is very cool. And the music is fantastic. Issue is that it's expensive. As for the food we haven't tried it.

Buddha Bar has had its time. This bar was hot in the nineties. Buddha Bar has overpriced food, is over packed with people, and has a overrated image. The sushi they serve, tastes like the sushi you get at a simple sushi take out restaurant. And don't expect to be welcomed by the staff either. Altogether a big disappointment.

The Budah bar in monte Carlo, Monaco, is the supercharged version of the Paris club. The people are beautiful, the music is fantastic, and the location cannot be beat. I highly recommend this club for late night and early morning festivities.

We did not eat at the restaurant so cannot comment on this. However we went for drinks and shisha. On Monday night we were advised the shisha area was busy so were asked by the manager to have a drink at the bar inside and he would find us when a table became free which he estmiated would be 30...

Bit daunting at first but actually reasonably priced, only drank there but definitely a must see even if it's not a regular haunt on your MC trip- it's definitely not to be missed though, it's interior alone is worth a visit!

Great creative cocktails served to a happy mix of locals and holiday revellers alike. Superb food. A really fun place to meet new friends or entertain old ones.
