“Absolutely flawless!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We dined at Restaurant Joel Robuchon our last night in Monte-Carlo and it was the perfect ending to a perfect week. Every aspect our experience, from the moment we were seated to exceptional (and delicious) desert selection, was flawless!

The service was very prompt, professional and attentive. We were never left waiting or wanting for anything.

The food was exquisite. The steak was perhaps the best I've ever had. The dinner menu included a nice selection of meats and seafood, but was not overwhelming. The dessert selection was amazing and we were invited to sample several items, all of which were exceptional. The prices were as you'd expect, but not as high as some of Monte-Carlo's other leading restaurants.

We love fine dining and seek out Michelin star restaurants whenever possible. I was very impressed with Restaurant Joel Robuchon. Located on the first floor of the Metropole hotel, the restaurant does not feature the exceptional views that some of city's other restaurants boast. The decor, by Karl Lagerfeld I believe, is pleasant but not particularly remarkable. The food and service, however, are among the best I've experienced anywhere. I definitely would return.

“Amazing Food, Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

A great restaurant for a special occasion or just a nite out with good friends. Four of us visiting Monte Carlo decided to treat ourselves to this well established restaurant. Enjoyed our pre dinner drinks of Ruinart Rose Champagne, followed by an amazing dining experince. The dining room,bread selection, menu, wine list will blow you away. We visited during their 10th Birthday and therefore on departure received a beautifully packaged birthday cake to take home. Overall very happy with the whole evening, would love to return on our next visit to Monte Carlo.

“One of the best meals of my life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

What a restaurant, what a service, what a food! BRAVO BRAVO! The menu is magnificent, full of surprises. This is the best restaurant in Monaco, and probably one of the best I have been my entire life. Simply amazing!

“Very Average and Wildy Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Hugely overpriced but very mundane cuisine. Really, nothing we ate was particularly exciting. Service was spotty & inconsistent.
Save the premium & eat in one of the many other fine restaurants in Monaco.

“Without a doubt the best lunches I ever had. Every year in May we go and have lunch here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This is probably the only restaurant where you can have lunch and watch the Formula One Grand Prix race live at the same time. And that is an awesome experience. This 2 Michelin star restaurant serves fantastic food in a great ambiance. The menu is magnificent and the staff is great. I cannot wait to go back next year May.
