We used to really like this place. Food was excellent, the atmosphere relaxed, the service attentive (although not very professional) and the prices reasonable. However, our two last visits were spoilt by the huge amount of salt the cook used in all the dishes that...More

Me and my wife recently visited the 2 star Joel Robuchon restaurant at the Metropole Hotel in Monte Carlo so it was easy to judge the standard of food here. The pre starter was delicious. The tempura vegetables in a gazpacho was also excellent and...More

We walk in with a reservation to a muted welcome from a waitress in a tracksuit. The restaurant is not full the whole time we are there, making us think perhaps a reservation was not required after all. The appetiser is extremely salty and heavy...More
