This restaurant is a hidden gem, ‘fine dinning’ level for the prices more then affordable, especially in Monaco. Unpretentious, highest quality food and service.

Nice location near the marina prompted my daughter & I to give it a try. Good choice - we thoroughly enjoyed a main course, dessert, water & wine.
Our main course was a stuffed chicken breast filled with asparagus and cheese served on a bed of vegetables and mashed potatoes. A bottle of chilled Bandol Rose was the perfect tipple to wash it down. My daughter selected a Chocolat Fondant for her dessert while I had a mini selection of 3 different sweets (pannacotta, tiramisu & a small choux pastry) - they were both excellent. The service was both polite and professional - we received an apology for the delay in "cooking" the chocolate fondant - however it was not excessive and we enjoyed the view and a break between courses. €105 euros was well spent - highly recommended.

Good service. Good food. Popular with a wide clientele, from local students eating pizzas after class to international wheeler-dealers, but including local residents, a fair indication of quality or value for money. Their risottos and pizzas are authentic and above average. Wine available by the glass. Desserts also more than passable. Coffee excellent. Pity that the Bld. Albert 1er is barrackaded for the Monaco Grand Prix leaving the entrance for months behind metal fencing.

A great restaurant right on the sea front of the main harbour and by the Grand Prix start-line. Despite possibly over-powering appearances, the staff were extremely welcoming, and like all French restaurants, wine was dear! 30 eu for a bottle of house wine, but a wild mushroom risotto, salmon and a choc fondant and a coffee, and the wine totaled 82 euros. Brilliant value with a great menu. They brought the wrong sweet, and taking it away was no problem at all, but the maitre d' did say we'd have to wait 10 minutes while the chef made the fondant. When it came it was piping hot and brilliant. All in all one of the best meals we've had in a long time, staff very friendly indeed and helpful, would recommend it 100% Even if the chap at the next table was taking about his yacht sale bonuses of 6 figures lol :-( We went in about 2pm and that was perfect late lunch time
