Fairmont Hotel, Monte Carlo

Our final three days in Europe is staying at the Fairmont Hotel, Monte Carlo. This, my friends is top of the heap in beauty, quality, entertainment, Casino and a 6 million dollar view at breakfast.

The shop windows throughout the Hotel make you stop and you cannot believe what  you are looking at. Shoes that are out of this world and dresses…..WOW!

The cars outside are the world’s most expensive and are all under the eyes of security 24/7.

Word of advice…men are not admitted into the casino if they are not wearing long pants. They will stop you before you put one foot inside the doorway.

This is luxury at its best. The bedrooms are beautiful and ours was in a beautiful soft blue and white with yellow accents. It had a small glass topped desk with a lovely blue and white chair. A large television with choices in English that was a real treat. You can select any language they have on the screen and get to watch what you want, when you want.

Breakfast is on the 7th floor and the view……there aren’t enough words to describe that view….it is beyond stunning.

There is one thing that to me, is a drawback. It costs 19 euros per day for wi fi and, there is no place to set up your suitcase. Nothing! To me, in such a high end hotel, there would be.

On the positive side….they had an iron and ironing board. Yup! They did.

It is a wonderful hotel and if you can, you should try and stay here!

Ristorante Mozza, Monte Carlo, Monaco

The second last dinner we had in Monte Carlo was in the harbour at Ristorante Mozza. We had been here on our previous visit to Nice and it is so enjoyable. The food is excellent and the service is beyond reproach.

The evening started with a choice of beverage and the appetizers begin. A tasting platter of cold cuts and Burrato cheese. Yummy to say the least. Then comes a mixed salad with octopus, and greens. Again, a very tasty salad should  you really like octopus. A beautiful, freshly made Rosemary Focaccia makes the rounds and by now, you think you have had dinner. But wait!

The main course is either the Catch of the day with vegetables and potatoes or Beef tagliata, parmesan, rocket, meat sauce with thyme. Trust me, there is no bad choice here. Both are fabulous.

Now, out comes the dessert and it is the largest Tiramisu you could imagine. Good? OMG! It is like silk but, oh so, huge. And, not done yet, comes out the coffee or espresso for those with any more room.

This is a must restaurant to dine in, enjoy and you come away wishing you lived closer.
