Our first dinner on our 14-day road trip after our 27-hour voyage from Maui...it became the benchmark for our entire trip. The flexibility of the Robuchon menu in itself is amazing. We opted for "Small Portions" for the opportunity to discover and taste the vast variety available in this epicurean paradise. The four of us sampled freshly shucked Oysters, Beet... More

Excellence defined. Service, food and room are all exemplary. Menu is varied enough to cater to any gourmand's tastes. Vegetarian selection also exquisite. In a class all to itself with a few other truly superb in all respects restaurant in the world. A must if in Monaco. Price very reasonable for the quality offered.

Entering through the Metropole hotel with its grand driveway, the experience starts well. Doormen to take the car but that is where the greeting falls down.

If you are looking for an excellent, justly awarded dining experience in a friendly, welcoming and warm atmosphere, look no further! Once we were greeted and led to our table overlooking the Grand Prix circuit and Monte-Carlo's lush gardens, we simply relaxed into a full dining experience.
