“First class dining experience”
Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

This is by far the best restaurant my husband and I have ever eaten in. The roof top terrace view is stunning, from dusk with the sun setting on the harbour to the twinkling lights and glitz and glamour of the harbour. The staff are extremely attentive but at no point did we feel they were intrusive, the service felt very discrete. We chose the set menu for €65 per person, which was available in English. A large wine list starting from around €100 euro a bottle and in excess of €2000 a bottle. There is something for everyone, and the Sommelier will help you choose.

With each course the food got better and better, it looked beautiful, it tasted amazing, and we could not fault one thing. This is an amazing place and one that you have to experience whilst in Monte Carlo. I would recommend making a reservation prior, we were lucky our concierge managed to make our booking.

Absolutely amazing, thank you Le Vistama!

“Surprisingly excellent!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Having stayed at the Hotel Hermitage on several occasions had often walked passed Le Vistamar and looked at the menu, but never eat there until now, curiosity raised by its Michelin star.
What a pleasant surprise it was, as the menu was modern, unfussy and featured plenty of garden fresh vegetables, which you tend to miss dining in French restaurants on a regular basis!
We had lobster, which was served with fresh vegetables and was one of the best lobster dishes I have ever had. Also was surprisingly reasonably priced for Monaco.
If you have had a blow out at Louis XV before at the Hotel de Paris and yearn for something more simple the following day, this is the place to detox and we will certainly go back.

“An elegant one star restaurant with a lovely view”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

The restaurant is situated on the upper floor of the Hermitage Hotel, consequently there are lovely views over the harbour, however on this occasion the weather was not good enough for us to sit on the terrace which would have afforded us the best views. I have experienced this view before and it is gorgeous on a balmy evening. However the decor and ambience is very nice indeed. The service was attentive but discreet. The food was up to the same standard, we both decided on the fish dishes from the a la carte menu, they were sophisticated and delicious, in my opinion in Britain the food would have been up to two star standard, approaching three star. We both had the grand marnier dessert soufflé and I have to say that it was probably the best that I have ever eaten anywhere (and I've had a few). Overall I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting or living in the town.

“Worthy of it's Michelin stars”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Our dinner at the Le Vistamar was a spectacular experience in a setting to match. We celebrated our wedding anniversary with the grand tasters menu that had a lobster theme and a total of seven courses.

The cost of this meal is 120 Euro however there is an abbreviated menu for 65 Euro as well as a la carte menu. The menu is in French, no English subtitles, but the waiters all speak english.

The service was impeccable with no miscues on cutlery and each course arrived perfectly cooked at the right temperature and artfully presented. The team of waiters were friendly, attentive and unobtrusive.

The wine menu is extensive, wine is available by the glass but there are not many bottles priced below 100 Euro. We had a bottle of red at the lower end of the range that turned out to be an excellent 2001 vintage. I suspect that there is not a bad bottle of wine in their cellar!

Reservations are very simple to make online at the restaurant’s website, we requested a view of the harbour and were given the perfect table for our 7.30 pm reservation. It was quite cool evening so we elected not to sit on the patio, if you do dress extra warm. The restaurant did provide comforters for some of the ladies seated there.

The view of the Monaco harbour was magical, it started off bathed in the setting sun and turned to a fairyland of lights after sunset, see the pictures attached.

The ambiance and excellent meal made this one of our top five lifetime dining experiences. I would highly recommend Le Vistamar for a splurge or special occasion.

We are huge foodies and ate at Le Vistamar on holiday. The food was excellent and the service was even better. The ambience at Hermitage is lovely. Highly recommend a visit.
