“Delicious flavours and wonderful restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I have traveled much in the middle east and so I looooove the flavours of middle eastern food.
I was not disappointed in the least at Monaco! It is authentic and wonderful!

The restaurant is clean, nicely decorated, the staff are friendly, and the menu options are great!

Middle Eastern (serves 2 Guests) $39
Hummous, fattoush salad, falafel, grape leaves (4), one skewer of chicken, beef and kafta kabob, served with grilled vegetables and seasoned rice or potatoes

My friend and I had the Middle Eastern Shared Platter for 2 (Hummous, fattoush salad, falafel, grape leaves (4), one skewer of chicken, beef and kafta kabob, served with grilled vegetables and seasoned rice or potatoes) and it was huge and delicious! You will not be left hungry. We had leftovers to take home.

Hummous with 4 pitas - delicious.
Fattoush salad - bright lively flavours!
Falafel - perfect!
Grape leaves - (basically rice mix in grape leaf wraps) these are my FAVOURITE!
Chicken skewer - moist, flavourful and delicious!
Beef skewer - tender and delicious!
Kafta (meatball) skewer - nice!
Grilled vegetables - tasty!
Rice - yum!
Roast Potatoes (we paid $2 to have BOTH the rice and potatoes. If I went with just 1, I'd go with the potatoes. YUMMMY!!)

All the flavours and all the food was delicious. I've probably said that a million times already in the review.

Will go again if I'm back in the area (I am visiting for a few days).
Wish there was a place like this where I am living.

I highly recommend!

“Good Food, Cool Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

I went to this place while in Windsor and I really enjoyed it. The service was excellent. The salad they give you as a starter was delicious and a good quantity to start your meal. I had the ground lamb skewers as they were out of sirloin and it was really good. The rice was also very tasty and the grilled vegetables went great with the plate. Prices could be a little lower but it was a great experience overall.

We have been for lunch a few times and are never disappointed. Great food. Great service. Good value. Oh and the garlic dipping sauce is one of the best in the city.

“Consistently impressive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

I have been here several times and have always been impressed with the deliciously prepared food and the down to earth service. The fatttoush salad is the best I've had and the main courses are plentiful and done to perfection. We enjoyed the Friday night belly dancer for the first time! Ann, who I have had as a server every time I've been there, is so congenial and always takes her time to assure good care.
I highly recommend this little wonderful restaurant.

“will be back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

For out of towners like me it may be a bit of a hassle finding, but do it. I had the coffee and the Lamb Kafta Plate. It was great. Had enough for a doggie bag lunch.
