Having read some very good reviews, we had high expectations of this restaurant. The menu describes the dishes in a way that makes them sound exotic and different. We were, however, disappointed. We were welcomed warmly and given a table in a pleasant garden setting, but the service, although polite, was incredibly slow. It was over an hour before we... More

The waiters were very friendly. We took a starter and main course. The starter was excellent and well presented. The main course was also good but the portions were the same as the starter. Great view on the mountains though. Definitely a place to recommend!

As a local we have visited this restaurant several times but yesterday when we went with our son and daughter in law for lunch, we enjoyed the three dishes from the menu but we were astonished to be charged 25 euros for a plate of plain spaghetti with a tomato sauce. Was this because they thought we were tourists?

Dear Sir, we are quite disapointed by your comment as it sounds really unfair. 25 € corrresponds to your son's spaghetti + your dessert (formula main+ dessert 25 €). This was a way to lower the total cost for you. Feel free to ask next time if you need more explanations. Best regards. Emmanuel ROBIN More

Recommended, good food and great atmosphere! If you are nearby it is a good place to have lunch or dinner. The backyard is great.

We went as a group of 7 on a Saturday night on the last day of our holiday and this did not disappoint! Lovely service and terrace. I started with an aubergine and truffle dish, followed by an excellent Asian inspired lobster. Would not hesitate to recommend.

We brought our son and his fiancée here for lunch as we had enjoyed it very much in April. We were not disappointed. They eat out a lot in Monaco and they were very impressed with the choice offered and particularly with the friendly and helpful service. We had the Menu Bistrot, €32 for three excellent courses beautifully presented which... More

We visited Madesens on a special day, the Mother's day. So the lunch menu was a special one at the price of 55 €. That included an amuse-bouche, pre-starter, starter, main, dessert and a macaron. A bottle of water was 5 €. A glass of excellent rosé for the price was 4 €. Espresso was 2,60 €. The amuse-bouche was... More

The worst thing I could do is to damn this place with faint praise because there is no doubt it is an improvement on Auberge Chantegrill that it was once known as, and that establishment had a regular clientele that appreciated the value for money that it offered. It was a roadhouse without pretensions. The new owners, conscious of this... More

Came here whilst staying locally with relatives who had been before. The building is split into 2 areas, one a fine dining restaurant and the one we visited which is called a "bistro" which I think doesn't quite prepare you for what is such a nice place. Inside is very clean and modern with a great ambience, although we happened... More
