Meat – and as good as it gets.
Cool and chic enough to act as an antidote to the chintzier elements of traditional Monaco.
As mentioned above, there’s something of a debate about this. I’ve found it pleasant and correct; others haven’t. If you’ve been, perhaps you’d let me know what you think.
Overlooking the new-ish port in the Fontvieille district. This a quieter zone, but getting less so as the years go by and trendy establishments open up.
In general, this quite an expensive spot – but there are some pretty good deals at lunch-time. This is why I've given the place a 'Mid-Range' tag. A full-meal Grande Assiette of, say, Italian charcuterie, grilled vegetables au pistou and the pasta of the day comes at just 14.50 euros. It includes a glass of wine.
Then there’s a business formula – starter plus sliced roast beef and a glass of wine, for 18 euros.
Naturally, if you stray over into the speciality meat dishes at dinner time, we’re talking bigger money: Argentine entrecote for 39 euros, Black Angus tenderloin from the US at 59 euros. You might consider it’s worth it, just this once.
