Valentin is the place to stop for lunch after a visit to the Monte-Carlo Casino. Most people stop at the restaurant just outside the casino, but a stroll through the park after the splendor of the casino will take you back to earth. You find Valentin just down the street at top of the park. It caters to the business... More

Having been to Monte Carlo numerous times I have always felt the food was over priced and underwhelming, however this all changed after visiting Valentin. The food is worthy of any michelin star restaurant around the world and the service from Pierre and his team was faultless. Pierre is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the food served and that really... More

We have been coming to Monte Carlo for over 20 years and in general we have found restaurants serving very mediocre food at a high price. We love Monte Carlo and its surrounding area for many reasons, but not particularly it restaurants. We were delighted having found this restaurant getting good reviews on trip advisor to go there and find... More

There are plenty of Restaurants in Monaco,this place is simple but outstanding good. If you like nice food prepared with love and passion, if you like a nice glass of wine not being any of the obvious ones, then you will love this Restaurant. The Restaurant is hidden in the Gallery of Park Palace, so no Sea view or anything... More

We have reached Valentin by fluke and after being ignored for almost 20 minutes at Cafe de Paris (next to the Casino), so my mood wasn't the greatest. But that changed quickly, as Pierre and Sophie were the sweetest and funniest people we have encountered in Monaco. Simone prepared some of the best dishes we've ever tried (try to get... More

Really friendly staff and manager. Great coffee and croissants. Apparently they make as much as possible in house with good ingredients. Even the apricot jam with the croissants was homemade, and really tasted of fruit and not heaps of sugar.

We read some reviews and decided to try this little restaurant, which was a great decision! We both had lovely (large) meals and the staff were friendly and helpful. I ordered the roast beef with onion sauce, with is slices of roast beef served cold with some salad and fries. It had beautiful flavours, the onion was not overpowering and... More

We spend a week in Monaco and went to Valentin for breakfast nearly every day and went there for dinner once. The atmosphere was lovely and it was one of the friendliest places we visited.What we thought was an attractive feature was the fact that locals would gather for their coffees throughout the day! The fresh pastries and seafood pasta... More

A small and hidden place in the heart of Monte Carlo - warm, white, essential - where you can taste the flavours of a real Italian kitchen, maybe fall in love with a glass of wine and spend some joyful time sitting at the table. Serving Italian breakfast and lunch Mon-Fri from 7:30 to 18:00. And a fantastic Tapas Apero Dinner on Friday night from 18:00 to 22:00.
