This is a tough one. My husband would give this 5 stars, but I think the prices are a bit extraordinary so am taking a star off. The food is good, the setting magnificent, the service attentive but not snobby but if you decide to go you have to think of it sort of like a tourist attraction.
We paid 175 euros for lunch, that is a lot. I had sole, my husband lamb, we each had a salad and a glass of wine, shared a dessert and each had coffee. But still, 175 at lunch....(about $240 American at the time)
The great thing is you are in a different world. There is history and the inside dining room is hung with art from the greats. My sole was deboned at the table with great flair, the lamb chops perfectly done and attention was paid to the sun, getting us coverage when needed but taking it away when the waiter felt we didn't need it and it actually made us warmer.
There are so many people waiting on you, I couldn't tell you exactly who our waiter was...
It is gracious and fun but I did feel a bit perfunctory, they know why people are coming. We could easily have spent more with some appetizers at 35 euro. But it was a great little bubble to be in and I'd probably go again, maybe do dinner next time - but first I have to hit the Casino at Monte Carlo and win big. The village is a great place to walk around after or before, more interesting items than just your usual tourist fare - they do have that as well but my husband got a great Panama hat and I found 2 dresses while wandering.
