A cheap eatery in the heart of Monaco not far away from the palace and the oceanographic museum. The service is fast and the food inoffensive. A good place to satisfy hunger rather than a desire to eat well

We had the special of the day, which was pricey, fresh fish roasted in salt. The appetizers were fresh and appealing, the fish was fantastic and the wine selection was good. This is an affordable place in a very not affordable location.

It's a really cool place to have a great meal. The beef was amazing and the dessert was also really good. It is very comfortable, but it doesn't have any view of the beautiful city and that's a pity. Though, the food is extremely good.
