La Mongolfiere was highly recommended by a chef in Nice; for good reason as we discovered on the night before the tiny restaurant closed for a long holiday. The room has space only for a small number of covers so is not the place to...More

The food has been OK, nothing but the issue is the customer service. The female owner reminded me a lot of Amy's Baking Company. I won't say more in order to have this review being approved. Nevertheless, I would recommend any other family restaurant in...More

We had dinner here on a Tuesday night just after New Year. The restaurant is on the rock, just near the palace. Everything we had was great. Each of us took the four course meal, which was almost too much food and extremely good. If...More

We are thinking about trying La Montgolfiere for dinner when we are in Monte Carlo in May. Do you know how easy it is to get there from the Fairmont Hotel? Thank you.

Not sure where the Fairmont is, but the restaurant is in the old city and quite a walk. We took a taxi from The Hermitage and I have a feeling the Fairmont may be quite close to The Hermitage
