After walking along crowded Boat Quay on a Friday evening, my wife and I were pleasantly surprised to find the area outside the restaurant to be relatively quiet. The restaurant is on the 2nd level, there was only one other couple there, and very quiet, which was great for us.
We find the ambience of the restaurant very pleasant, cozy and very cool compared to the humid warm temperature outside. The manager from Monte Carlo was very cheerful, very professional and good without being intrusive.
My wife had foie gras and duck confit, I had the fresh oysters, beef cheek. We ordered a bottle of Cote du Rhone to go with the food, and I had some cheese to finish the wine with. The food was excellent, my wife commented the foie gras was exquisite and the duck confit superb with the wine. The oyster I had was just OK, nothing to shout about, but the braised beef cheek was very "melts in the mouth" tender and delicious, and went very well with the wine. We finished with coffee and shared the pear crumble.
It was overall a very pleasant evening, we spent chatting and talking in a very nice, quiet and cozy setting, and not having to fight with crowd, the noise and the heat, the restaurant reminded us of our holiday in southern France many many years ago.
The bill was not the cheapest, but to me, it was well worth it; my wife was very happy and so was I.
