Coming from Seattle, I am used to having good quality sushi, so I was very surprised to have one of my most favorite sushi experiences in Monaco. Restaurants in Monaco in general are on the expensive side, so Buddha Bar was quite reasonably priced with prices more or less comparable to a high end sushi restaurant in the U.S. I... More

I wouldn't recommend this place as a "have-to-go" as Monaco features much more special restaurants and refined gastronomy. Nonetheless, Buddha Bar gives the real exotic touch to the Principality and the view on the sea from the terrace make it a lovely place where to enjoy a nice cocktail with hookah. The restaurant also worth a meal, but only when... More

Food good not really worth the price. There are better places to eat for ones money further up the hill. Less tourists and way more locals as one goes up. Return? No. Recommend? No.

Dined here during grand prix week and really enjoyed the fun atmosphere...decor, service and food were all excellent. You could start and finish your night in this venue...dining upstairs (we had our own section for a private party)...and move your party downstairs if you wish to mingle at the bar area. Very nice.

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.
