Savour the finest
cuisine in the Principality’s best restaurants, or charm your palate by tasting
some traditional Monegasque specialities.
Settle in at the Port Palace (****) for this sweet
escape among Monegasque scents and flavours. After
arriving in the morning, have a pleasant, tasty lunch at one of only two Gaia
restaurants in the world (the other one being in Dubai), where you will get a
unique taste of Greek cuisine. Then, take a nice walk to world-famous Place du Casino and the new One Monte Carlo district, and stop at Mada One to sample some of their famous Mad’Champagne
At the Yoshi restaurant (1-star) with its rare Japanese
cuisine, rewarded with a Michelin star, you can enjoy dining in the cosy
atmosphere devised by the architect Didier Gomez. Founded by Joël Robuchon who
said of the restaurant: One comes here by curiosity, is enticed by the
products’ quality and meets there for pleasure. For the final touch, let
yourself be tempted by an after-dinner drink or a glass of wine at the Wine
Palace, at the Yacht Club de Monaco, just across from your hotel.
At Cova, you will delight in a refined
breakfast served in a private ‘lounge’ atmosphere. For the sake of gastronomy, you
won’t want to miss the traditional La Condamine market where, under the red and
yellow parasols, you can see, smell and touch fresh products on the stands of market
gardeners who have been coming here for centuries. As you go along, you won’t want
to resist sampling local specialities: Barbajuan, Pissaladière and Socca. Then, we suggest you stroll up to the Rock.
There, nestled between grand Mediterranean pines, and overlooking Fontvielle
harbor since 1953, the Castelroc has become a historical landmark. Enjoy their
traditional delights, from their veranda facing the Prince’s Palace or while
enjoying the breathtaking views of their terrace. Nearby, in a quaint
pedestrian street of the old town, the gastronomic Montgolfiere, a little
family - run restaurant, is the perfect counterpoint to all the trendy and
‘bling’ places in Monaco!
You can further pursue your day of gustatory
exploration at La Chocolaterie de Monaco, chocolate makers since 1920, official
suppliers of the Prince’s Palace, and bring back a fine box bearing the
Principality’s colours. At the Tea Shop, you can take a break by sampling one
of the 130 teas from the world over available à la carte and why not take your favourite home with you?
Continue your gastronomic journey by discovering
the Maya Jah restaurant, where Mediterranean cuisine meets oriental flavours.
Chef Mustapha El Hajraoui, sublimates traditional and contemporary recipes with
the desire to create and surprise guests. Maya Jah reveals an elegant and
delicate space allowing an escape with a thousand and one scents in two
universes that complement each other harmoniously. While summering, we invite you
to bid farewell to Monaco by visiting the beach of Méridien Beach Plaza (****), at the
Balinese-style Alang Bar, to start sipping delectable cocktails with your feet
in the sand.
