Wonderful meal. Only choice for meal was Plat du jour but it was great. They also had a number of small plates. Friendly and efficient service. A little hard to find as it is tucked in a shopping area. Well worth the challenge to find

This is my third review in 3 years for Valentin. Why? Because Pier, Simona and Sophie keep hitting the ball out of the park. The food changes every day. It's great every day. And they really just, simply, know how to cook delicious, interesting things....More

Valentin is the place to stop for lunch after a visit to the Monte-Carlo Casino. Most people stop at the restaurant just outside the casino, but a stroll through the park after the splendor of the casino will take you back to earth. You find...More

Having been to Monte Carlo numerous times I have always felt the food was over priced and underwhelming, however this all changed after visiting Valentin. The food is worthy of any michelin star restaurant around the world and the service from Pierre and his team...More

Is there a dress code? Typical cost for a three course dinner with moderate quality bottle of wine?

Response from PierAimo | Property representative |
Hello. No, there's no dress code. We are a simple cafeteria and restaurant. The only purpose is that you feel good, so be yourself also in what you'll wear (also a smoking, if you please). And sorry, again no. We're not open... More

A small and hidden place in the heart of Monte Carlo - warm, white, essential - where you can taste the flavours of a real Italian kitchen, maybe fall in love with a glass of wine and spend some joyful time sitting at the table. Serving Italian breakfast and lunch Mon-Fri from 7:30 to 18:00. And a fantastic Tapas Apero Dinner on Friday night from 18:00 to 22:00.
