This place enjoys fantastic views over the city of Ulaanbattar and for that reason alone was well worth the visit! The food was average but to be very honest, the only decent meals we have had in Ulaanbattar were at the Verandah Restaurant nearby and the Prime Grille in the Best Western Tuushin! The decor in Monet is very tasteful... More

My partner and I celebrated a special occasion at Monet last Friday night, and were overwhelmingly disappointed. The view over Sukhbaatar Square as the sun sets is stunning, and the services much better than at most other restaurants in Mongolia, but that is where the fine experience ends. The serves are tiny, for instance, the Seared scallops salad, mixed cress,... More

This restaurant did not disappoint. the food was great and the service very attentive. The nighttime views over Ulaanbaater are also a highlight so if you get the chance - it was certainly THE best restaurant I... More

Formal atmosphere lightened up by the beautiful views from the top of Central Tower. The food is good and presented very nicely.

In general the quality of food in UB is average and after so many visits you lower your expectations. The one thing I get annoyed off is bad service in the city. Monet in that sense is the place were I experienced service which was top notch and actually the food is good. I don't mind paying the prices as... More

The Monet has an excellent "Business Lunch" menu which I, along with my friends, have taken advantage of many time and always thoroughly enjoyed the meals. The value for money has been excellent. Fantastic views of Ulaanbaatar. Evening meals are on the expensive side but the food has been good. Service is attentive.

Went to Monet for a special event. The set menu read like one would expect for a high priced restaurant. Unfortunately there was a galactic gap between the actual food and written menu. I am not sure if it was expectations but the food was bad. Caprese salad was preset on the table, the fresh mozzarella died and went to... More

I thought that this restaurant would be great because of the high prices, but I was very disappointed. The Australian beef was not of very good quality. I would have preferred Japanese or American beef. The view is great, as it is on the 17th floor of Central Tower building. I got a laugh when I read one reviewer call... More

The views are great. Service is very efficient. Menu is well thought out, and should have something for everyone. And the wine list is quite good. Portions are good (not too large which noody needs) and he food quality is first rate. Would this be 5 stars in Paris? No, but for Mongolia, it's a treat.

Living in a city like Ulaanbaatar, you expect nice things to be less expensive than in a developed country. I guess Monet doesn't understand that. Although the food was no more than average compared to a comparable meal in the US or Europe, it was just as expensive or even more so. The view is fantastic for UB, so maybe... More
