Being perched on the edge of the beautiful Mediterranean means that Monaco is surrounded by jaw-dropping views. The restaurants of Monaco are among the best of the world, with Alain Ducasse’s Le Louis XV leading the way for a culinary culture that exudes luxury, sumptuousness and history. Dining anywhere in the Principality is invariably indulgent: local recipes delight the tastebuds, the stunning views please the eyes, and the 5-star service leaves you wanting for nothing. Even the alcoholic drinks are different from others: The Brasserie de Monaco is even credited with the world’s first luxury beer – the only beer that is brewed in the Principality. A helicopter transfer to Monaco leads you to one of these 10 stunning terrace restaurants.
1. Le Café De Paris Monte Carlo
An eclectic but stylish venue with an intimate and festive atmosphere. This is the perfect place to meet old friends and make new ones.
2. La Pizzeria
There are few things better than enjoying fine Italian cuisine on a Mediterranean beachfront, which makes La Pizzeria a must. Its O Sole Mio pizza was recently awarded the coveted ‘Best pizza in the world’ title.
3. Le Deck
No matter how far you travel from your own private members club, you’re sure to feel echoes of it in this delightful lunchtime hot-spot.
4. La Trattoria
Tuscany comes to the Principality in the form of restaurant guru Alain Ducasse’s latest venture. With an antipasti buffet and a plethora of local fish to choose from, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
5. Las Brisas
Just a stone’s throw from the sea and the lagoon, Las Brisas is a paradise of barbecues and summer salads, playfully put together by chef Marcel Ravin.
It takes a certain artistry to turn low calorie ingredients into mouthwatering fayre but that’s exactly what Chef Jean-Claude Brugel has managed to do at L’Hirondelle, which overlooks the Port and the Rock.
7. La Vigie Lounge & Restaurant
Concealed within a pine wood overlooking a vast expanse of ocean is La Viglie, a lounge and restaurant renowned for its food and champagne pairings. The langoustes are an absolute must-try.
8. L’Orange Verte
Michelin star Chef Marcel Ravin promises ‘food and fun’ with his quick yet high-quality takeaway offering. You’ll be hard-pushed to find better classic French pastries anywhere on the coast.
9. Le Vistamar
Although it has a reputation for its exterior view, the interior design of Le Vistamar receives more than its share of plaudits. Designed by Pierre Yves Rochon, it is the perfect setting to enjoy Chef Benoit Witz’s Michelin-star dishes.
10. The Salle Empire and terrace
This is the Monaco of old. A listed building since the late 19th century and with a great view across the Place du Casino, this elegant venue is perfect for banquets, receptions or just a simple breakfast and dinner.
