My partner and I celebrated a special occasion at Monet last Friday night, and were overwhelmingly disappointed.
The view over Sukhbaatar Square as the sun sets is stunning, and the services much better than at most other restaurants in Mongolia, but that is where the fine experience ends.
The serves are tiny, for instance, the Seared scallops salad, mixed cress, pepper coulis, pesto sauce comprised three sugar-cube sized morsels. I enjoyed the Foie Gras pan seared goose liver, asparagus, strawberry, but again the serve was tiny. My Australian steak ordered medium-rear arrived well cooked, and my partner's Sea Platter would have fitted comfortably on a tea saucer.
The Wolfblass Grey Label we ordered was unavailable, so we decided on the Yellow Label which was ok, but at three times the market price.
The meal cost us just over USD 156.00, which for Ulaanbaatar is pretty steep. I suggest if you want an equally pleasant dining experience and don't mind the view, go to the Verandah Restaurant in Jamiyan Gun Street, or the California in Seoul Street. The service in either of these two establishments don't match the Monet, but at least you will get a satisfying meal without being fleeced.
