“Great spot for people watching”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Like everything else in Monaco, this place is very expensive if you want to eat. However, if you just want a bottle of wine, it is very reasonably priced. This is a great place to do just that. Grab a bottle, a seat outside and enjoy the view. There is fantastic people watching, and you get a front row seat to all the ridiculously expensive/flashy cars as they pull up to the casino.

“Surprisingly low priced”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Passing through on a cruise trip, so inevitably didn't have long, so a quick drink and chance to rest your feet basically, and to be honest, considering your on of the most expensive and exclusive pieces on land on the planet, I thought the drinks bill was quite cheap - honestly a few euros for coffees, lattes etc - really surprised me. Weather was pants on the day we were there, but on a nicer day I can imagine the chance to enjoy the surroundings would be a real pleasure. Its a busy little place, even in low season, so getting a seat outside might not always be possible.

“Grand Prix de Monaco!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

High quality lunch at Café de Paris during such an event. Outdoors seating in the sun, efficient service, beautiful food presentation. To top the experience we got passes to the rooftop to have a better view of the races!

“Vibrant dining experience”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We had dinner here on Sat night during Grand Prix weekend and what an experience. Have never seen such a busy place and it really was a Hive of Activity.

Was good fun to dine while people / car watching.

Menu was shortened compared to usual and didn't seem particularly brilliant. The food that was there was good (desert excellent actually) but perhaps not quite up to other places we ate or maybe it just didnt seem to match the overall experience which was so good. Maybe to be expected given how busy it was and could be different non grand prix times.

Service was quite slow to begin with (we made the mistake of not coming in the front) but once we were seated everything seemed to run like clockwork. It was fascinating to see the constant stream of plates coming out to the serving areas without any spillage / accidents. Great work by the staff!

“'Hive of activity'”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

So we only ever tend to go to Cafe de Paris for drinks and watch the world and it's cars go past. It's expensive that for sure, we had an orange juice, milkshake and medium beer and it came to just under €43. But you tend to know that before you go, certainly good to spend half hour watching all the activity.
Service ok.
