What to Eat in Monaco

Rich flavors and pricey items dominate the food scene in Monaco. The city is set along the Mediterranean Sea, meaning seafood is a staple on the menus around town. So are traditional ingredients found in the Mediterranean diet, such as olive oil, fresh vegetables and hummus, among other items. Wine is also a staple and because of Monaco's proximity to Italy and France, you'll likely notice a plethora of Italian and French wines (especially Champagne) readily available.

When it comes to restaurants dishing out traditional Mediterranean fare, travelers and experts suggest L'Hirondelle restaurant and terrace for its healthy eats and stunning views. Monaco is also home to five Michelin-starred restaurants, including the highly acclaimed three-starred Le Louis XV. Travelers with deep pockets are quick to recommend a meal at this refined eatery, praising its ambiance and decadent food.
