We love having the Prize Fixe menu to choose from just like the popular restaurants in Paris. The food was delicious but not pretentious and the owner is just charming! Such a cozy little romantic spot

Wonderful French food! But the service is the best! Small, cozy with a few tables on the sidewalk outside. After your meal you might want to stroll around Old Town Monrovia.

A must see cafe with a well stocked/priced Sunday brunch. Brings back European memories with both food, service and atmosphere.

France, one of the largest countries in continental Europe, naturally has regional differences. The Riviera - Cote d'Azur - where Cafe Massilia's proprietor came from has very nice people. Back from a recent trip to the South of France, I tested the food, service and...More
