Now that summer is on its way again, simple, sunny pleasures are also making a comeback. One that everyone loves is, of course, sitting out on restaurant terraces. Whether you live in Monaco or you’re only staying with us for a while, what could be better than enjoying the deliciously balmy weather outdoors! Be it with colleagues after work, your family as a way to start the day, your partner for a romantic dinner date, or friends for a fun-filled evening, why not make the most of the joy and ease created by the winds of freedom out on our terraces...
Whether you're looking to enjoy a drink, a relaxed lunch, or treat yourself to the romantic dinner of dreams, in Monaco there’s a terrace that’s made for you. The exotic, electric atmosphere of Buddha-Bar Monte-Carlo is a great place to chill out, as are the jazzy surrounds of Le Bar Américain. The terrace there is perfect for enjoying some food, or sipping on a drink to the tinkling tunes tripping off the piano... A distinctly “bistro” feel reigns on the terrace of the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo even at its temporary new location in the Salle Empire of the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, and at Mada Lounge, right in the heart of the One Monte-Carlo district, whilst the sweeping terrace of Michelin-starred restaurant Pavyllon, a Yannick Alléno restaurant at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo is the ideal place to savour unforgettable culinary creations as you drink in views of the port, the old city and – of course – the Mediterranean Sea. It’s also undoubtedly one of the most stunning terraces in Monaco, and lends itself perfectly to a romantic dinner. It’s all change, however, as we head to the terrace at Le Deck: at the Monte-Carlo Beach hotel, creative Mediterranean cuisine is served up in a completely different setting with a vibe all its own alongside the hotel’s superb pool. Holidays are in the air at Las Brisas, too, the summer restaurant at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, where guests can enjoy lunch and share a fun with family in the ultimate laid-back surroundings...complete with a breath-taking view of the Med.
To make your trip out onto the terrace as enjoyable as it should be, it’s undoubtedly all a question of timing. A distinctly “bistro” feel reigns on the terrace of the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo, even at its temporary new location in the Salle Empire at the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, and at Mada One right in the heart of the One Monte-Carlo district.. Or, time to enjoy the coolness and tropical twists of L'Orange Verte restaurant terrace. A drink out on the terrace at Mada One or Buddha-Bar Monte-Carlo is the perfect time to relax with friends. Time spent on the terrace of the 3 Michelin-starred: the Louis XV – Alain Ducasse restaurant at the Hôtel de Paris is always incredibly special. And, when it’s time to get the party started, then COYA Monte-Carlo or the Blue Gin terrace is the place to be. That could even see you moving and grooving all the way to the end of the evening, to the live music that provides the soundtrack for nights out in Monaco.
It may be small, but there’s more to Monaco than meets the eye. Charming spots and stunning viewpoints litter the city, not to mention the restaurant terraces that will have you drawing up a chair for a gourmet pitstop. Seated in the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo, you’ll get to watch the Place du Casino teeming with life.
The all-enveloping Monaco experience would not be complete without the spectacular setting provided by the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, with the lush greenery of a Mediterranean garden exuding the exquisite fragrance of lemon trees, kumquats and wild sage, breath-taking sea views, and a shaded terrace that makes the perfect place for a bite to eat on warm summer days. Amidst these chic, relaxing surroundings, Em Sherif Monte-Carlo also offers guests the chance to enjoy its Shisha Lounge Bar, which is open afternoons and evenings.
From the L’Hirondelle restaurant terrace at Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo, Port Hercules and the old city provide the backdrop of dreams. And from the panoramic terrace of Michelin-starred Le Grill... The top floor of the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo offers views over the entire Principality, stretching all the way to Italy. Just for a moment, you might even forget to enjoy your soufflé, the restaurant’s signature dessert!
If you're looking for a chic and cheerful place to party all summer long, look no further than the Crystal Lounge at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, which opens on 8 July, where you'll also be able to admire beautiful seascapes, all in a lounge atmosphere provided by a DJ from 5pm to 1am.
Come and discover the Pop-Up "Stop n' Go" of the Hermitage hotel, in the heart of Monte-Carlo in partnership with Veuve Clicquot for a sparkling break. On site or to take away, you can enjoy the delights of this pop-up store every day during the summer from 12pm to 8pm.
Change of scenery on the terrace at the Blue Bay, a restaurant that offers an unforgettable sea view to accompany a double starred meal.
