We visited for the second time on Aril 29 - 6 of us, and were very happy as we were the last time. The chef sustained a cut on his face from a broken bottle, but stayed and cooked us a wonderful 3 course meal. The atmosphere, the food and the wines were excellent. We will definitely return. we were... More

Fabienne and Henri were amazing! We had such a lovely time!! Beautiful food with creative Japanese inspired flavours especially their signature strawberry dessert (highly recommended). The service was impeccable - welcoming and attentive. I got cold and was offered a warm scarf, the food presentation was spot on with beautifully designed slates, they had cute cat decorations and unique Japanese... More

My wife and I went here for lunch. It is a very cosy place, and the couple who runs it are very friendly and helpful. And they know their food and wine. For starter we had gnocchi w/ artichokes and parmesan, delicious. I had the tuna tartar for main which was absolutely amazing. An explosion of different flavors all coming... More

My colleagues and I chose this wonderful, intimate restaurant for a celebration lunch recently. It was our most memorable gathering to date (and we have had many). The warm welcome we received from Fabienne and Henri got us off to a great start. Every dish put on the table was prepared with great care and tasted fresh, unique and absolutely... More

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
