In mid-September on a Mediterranean cruise we called at Monaco, and after visiting the Oceanographic Museum and Prince's Palace were looking for a nice lunch. Making our way away from the crowded areas we came upon this tucked-away restaurant, and ventured in. There was a large table of local business people having a long lunch - they were going strong...

We were with a tour group, so take this with a grain of salt. They served corked wine that we knew was too old to drink. A salad nicoise that was straight off of a cafeteria line. Sea Bream that was so bland and soft it was like eating cream of wheat. Not sure what desert was, some sort of... More

We dined here with my husband & 2 children. We had a fantastic lunch, fresh sea bass for adults & quarter of a chicken with French fries for children. The staff are very friendly & efficient. The price is reasonable too, 20 euro per adult including dessert & coffee

We went to have lunch there. We were really lucky: the waiter who served us was really professional, careful, with a smile on his face and tried to help us all the time. He told us he was from Italy. But he spoke French as a native person and his Spanish was also perfect. He deserves to be mentioned in... More
