Nice environment and very buzzy. However (in my opinion) food standards are not high enough to justify the price. One of our dishes arrived clay cold and upon complaint, no apology and that guest ended up eating alone when the replacement arrived. Stark contrast to the service and food we enjoyed at Cipriani the night before for pretty much same... More

We went into the Buddha Bar not quite knowing what to expect. The decor, music and general ambience were really interesting with the bar completely dominated by the enormous Buddha statue. The drinks were not expensive for Monaco and the staff very attentive. We only stayed for a couple of pre dinner drinks so can't comment on the food, but... More

I try to go here every month as I love it so much! The food is delicious. The staff are welcoming and friendly. The ambience and decor are first class Trendy chic and priced more than fairly considering you're in Monaco

The place can get very crowded so it is worth going a bit earlier for the pre 20.00 cheaper drinks before dinner & then a meal. From 22.00 you can hardly move or get a drink at the bar. Music as you would expect was excellent , the food was good , well prepared & the service was attentive. The... More

Stepped in for quick coffee and traditional whiskey drink. I was quick welcomed in and till I got to my table my order was taken. Another few moments and I gad my drinks in my hands. Really recommend. Nice, warm and luxury place.

The jarring note in the place, was the sight of drunk men and women dancing in front of the statues of Buddha. Rest, the drinks were reasonably prices (by Monaco standards)

I am not sure what is the big deal with this club. When I went in there it was too crowded and left after 30 minutes. The place was decorated like a Buddhist temple with many statues of Buddha. However looking at the crowed dancing and getting drunk in front of these statues somehow does not feel right. There is... More

We did not eat at Buddha Bar simply because we had little time and a number of restaurants to visit, however we had cocktails on the patio overlooking the sea. It had a lovely atmosphere and the cocktails were lovely. We also had complementary prawn crackers which was a nice touch as you often want something small whilst drinking. Top... More

It is well located near the Fairmont hotel. You need to climb the stairs to be there. Nice atmosphere, the food is great and the music is great.
