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 go in a big group. Situated in a picturesque little street close to the Royal... 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 the area before this one.

Dear Patricia W, We are sincerely sorry you must belong to that category of poorly educated people we have to deal with sometimes, (as other restaurants, hotels,...). Thus, your point of comparison with a regrettably "famous" address is a ridiculous argument... Finally, one gets the attention he deserves and believe through the network of chefs/owners/managers... Radio Casserole" works indeed !!!... 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 you like truffle, take the truffle option. Every plate, including desert will come with truffles.

We were very pleased with both Asuan fusion menu and attention to details by the owners of this unique Restsurant in Monaco. It is not typical European menu drived restaurants exist all over the town. The owners are very knoeledgeable and helpful in assisting us selecting dishes and drinks. You feel they really care about quality of dishes they serve.... More

The bad tamper of the waitress and unfriendly discussions between the waitress and chef ruined the excellent food and evening.

HvR... Obviously and curiously, you are trying to trouble the work of a husband/wife team achieved under human conditons varying depending on the days, health status, etc... for several years now. Such a comment is unfair and there is no reason to express your deep frustrations (unless you claim to live the "Perfect, untroubled romance"... ), against ourselves and consequently... More

We travel to Monte Carlo every year in September. We discovered La Montgolfiere 3 years ago and its now the first restaurant we book when planning our annual trip. Outstanding creative food and warm welcome every year. Located near the palace on a beautiful charming street . We look forward to next year!

A cute rustic restaurant in the small alley leading away from the palace we stumbled across this restaurant...only to find out about its number one spot on tripadvisor after we got home.

Although I have been a couple of times and my second visit was not as special as the first, I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. A small restaurant with tables on a quiet pedestrian street, service is friendly and a little quirky. Food is good, sort of French/Asian fusion, menu options good but fairly restricted, wine list...
