Hi Lawrence and anyone else looking for info on Monaco restaurants, parties, etc.
Lawrence – I’ve emailed you the restaurant list for Nice & Monaco along with some other info we send to our guests including an info pack which contains some of the things we do but also general tourist information including a map, details of opening times and ticket prices for some of the tourist attractions, info on public transport, etc. etc.
Below is a previous post regarding restaurants, parties, etc. which may be of use also…
…There is lots going on in Nice and Monaco over the GP weekend. Lots of different parties, lots of restaurants and bars obviously. Many parties come and go and quite frankly aren’t worth the money.
Lots of the yachts, including ours, host yacht parties over the weekend with canapes, drinks, music etc. and we try to keep our prices as reasonable as possible but it being Monaco nothing comes cheap to put on in the first place.
Rascasse is great for Friday night but the atmosphere seems to be very very different on Sunday night, for want of a better description the atmosphere on Friday is fun and exciting whereas Sunday seems to be more aggressive for some reason. Not sure shy but it’s been like that the last few times we and our guests have been.
There are lots of other paying parties like Amber Lounge, Jimmy’z etc. but you are looking at 650 – 800 euro per person depending on the night for an individual pass with all drinks but no food…not to everyone’s taste or budget although you are pretty much guaranteed to see some F1 drivers.
In Nice there are lots of tourist trap restaurants and lots of good, reasonable ones. If you PM me I will send you our suggested restaurants list that we send to our guests as a starting point.
For Monaco you can also check out http://www.visitmonaco.com/us and http://www.restaurants-montecarlo.com/en/
For Nice check out this blog http://www.allaboutnice.com/restaurants_in_Nice.html, I’m not sure the lady who started it is still adding to or updating it so I don’t know how up to date the restaurant reviews are but she offers great advice and restaurant reviews for Nice
Seasons greetings to all
