In the shadow of the cathedral, it is best to sit outside and soak up the atmosphere. A really good place to enjoy local cuisine and have the full three course experience.

I go very often in Monaco and always do a visit to these restaurant for a casual lunch. The staffs are very cheeky and funny, the food is fresh and good serve, if you buy fresh fish on special just do be careful you get charge per 100 grams so it can be a 25 to 30 euros a serve.... More

Approx. 24 of us had Sunday lunch inside the restaurant (insufficient outside space to accommodate all of us together). Food and service was excellent. Good banter with the staff.

Our favourite restaurant in Monaco. Went many times many years ago. Managed to make four nights after 10 years away. Jerome recognised us and made us feel so welcome as usual. Ask yourself why it seems full when other places are empty. Thanks again and hope to see you again.

Went there for lunch, great stop in Monaco! The service was great, waiters were welcoming and helpful, the food was really good (especially the grilled fish that they prepare in front of you!). Great quality for the prices here.

We were there yesterday and it was not good. We did many restaurant in Monaco but this one not ok at all. The waiters make strange jokes that are not funny and the gamba as were horrible... I didn't ask a big Coca Cola but they gave me half liter... Not correct... You should think twice before going here...

We visited with friend who have dined at Bar Express for many years. Our experience was first class. The service, the food and the price was exceptional. A 3 course meal in Monaco for around €26 is superb value for money.

Check the bill before you leave. Tourist trap. We asked them to pack 1/4 of pizza for our kids, the waitress said with arrogance that she throw it in the garbage. No drinks menu, so they charge whatever they want. 0,2 beer for 7 eur :-) after my complaint they

We took lunch at the Bar Express, just a few yards from the Palace Square, when we visited Monaco recently. The omens were not good when we first came upon the restaurant; mostly because we normally shy away from places that seem aggressive or pushy in trying to "pull in the punters". Anyhow, against our better judgement, we overlooked the... More
