REVIEW

Café de Paris Monte-Carlo

If you're visiting Monte-Carlo's legendary casino, the obvious place to dine is at Alain Ducasse's Le Louis XV in the Hotel de Paris.  But for a less exorbitantly-priced French meal, or for a great place to rendez-vous for a drink, you'll want to stop by the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo, a local institution that dates from 1868 and that is located right on the Place du Casino. The terrace, which evokes the atmosphere of a Belle Époque bistro, is a great spot to settle for an hour or two and enjoy not only people-watching but also automobile-watching: there is probably a higher concentration of Aston Martins here than anywhere in the world. The food is very good (although consistently falls just short of excellence) and priced as you would expect in these surroundings.  Once you lose a remarkable amount of money in short succession at the casino, head next door to Le Bar Américain (it's directly opposite Le Louis XV) for cocktails and live music.
