A wonderful dining experience in a warm, welcoming and intimate setting in this family owned and operated gem of a restaurant. The food quality and pairings were incredible. The atmosphere was equally impressive. Intimate and authentic space nestled in the historical Monaco-ville.

Mike wife and I enjoyed a very tasty lunch. I had the black cod and my wife had the grilled calamari. Reservations a must. Several without reservations were turned away.

Accented by Asian flavors -- miso, tuna tataki, and matcha. Seafood was very fresh. The Fregola Sarda aux Girolles was happiness in a bowl! Service was lovely and attentive. Michelin is always spot-on!

We went with the family and had a most enjoyable dinner. We sampled pretty much all the dishes, as we were a large group, and they were all flawless. The atmosphere was great. Highly recommended, whether for family or for a romantic night out.

Having read excellent reviews of this restaurant, we were attracted by the fact that the restaurant is so quaint and cosy. There were three tables of 6 people already seated and we were early but were warmly welcomed by Fabienne. Having little or no knowledge...More

I don't think would be the N° 1 restaurant at the place. It is only a nice place, good food, and professional people which creates a good atmosphere.

Not sure where the Fairmont is, but the restaurant is in the old city and quite a walk. We took a taxi from The Hermitage and I have a feeling the Fairmont may be quite close to The Hermitage
