Location and decoration are very nice. Drinks are not cheap, expect 10 euro for a drink. Visit the buddha bar several times but this time I found the music not buddha bar style.

Why only average? It was very busy.. that's a good thing.. and the party was definitely in swing.. the bar staff were working like crazy and succeeding in getting the drinks out to everyone.. it just seemed a little lost.. people looking for something to happen.. beautiful building though..

....be prepared for second mortgage to pay for drinks! I know it's Monaco but they should realise not all customers are billionaires!! Interesting clientele to - old men, young women and those ladies of the night! People watching paradise I guess!!

The restaurant opens at 20:00 BUT the bar opens at 18:00. The bar scene is great and you sit under the giant Buddha and order from the bar menu. Sushi, Maki, Dim Dum, Gyoza all excellent. Great wine list and Champaign's galore. Music from the in house DJ. Perfect after walking the hills of Monaco all day

The setting is breath taking and the atmosphere is buzzing but the food is not great. The quality of the ingredients were not that fresh. The food in the London branch is better but not the decor. I think for the price you are paying, the food should be outstanding. The staff was really helpful though.

Came here this month as we decided against their NYE menu and tried Sass instead. BIG mistake! Buddha never fails to deliver in every level. Ambiance is cool trendy and chic. Decor is spectacular. Service is impeccable. Food is perfection. I will never venture anywhere else based on the fact in 8 visits here I have never had a problem.... More
