Café de Paris Monte-Carlo

The Café de Paris Monte-Carlo, a name that epitomises elegance, history and culinary excellence, has reopened its doors after a 19-month transformation. In this article, we explore the latest incarnation of this legendary establishment that is deeply rooted in Monte-Carlo’s DNA.

Historical roots revitalised

The history of the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo dates back to 1868, when it was known as “Le Café Divan“. It symbolises the evolution and timeless charm of a genuine Monegasque brasserie. The reopening of this iconic location is part of a comprehensive development project by the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, which began in 2014 and included the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, the One Monte-Carlo neighbourhood, the Casino de Monte-Carlo and the Place du Casino.

Architectural harmony and elegance

The reconstructed building now extends over three floors. Each level is harmoniously designed and offers a unique experience. The design was entrusted to the Monegasque architect Alexandre Giraldi and Alain-Charles Perrot, chief architect for historical monuments. Their work reflects a perfect symbiosis of respect for the historical substance and modern elegance.

An oasis of culinary delights

At the heart of the new Café de Paris Monte-Carlo is the classic French brasserie, reinterpreted with refined simplicity and culinary artistry. Under the direction of Eric Gorjux and chef Victor Marion, known from the Hotel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, the café presents classics of French cuisine in combination with seasonal and local products. The menu offers traditional dishes such as the famous gratinated onion soup and the millefeuille monté minute, complemented by contemporary creations.

A new chapter in the art of sommelier

The arrival of Noël Bajor, an experienced sommelier from Louis XV-Alain Ducasse at the Hôtel de Paris, marks a new stage in the café’s wine culture. With a team of six sommeliers, the café offers an excellent selection of wines that will delight both lovers of French wines and international guests.

The reopening: A celebration for Monte-Carlo

Stéphane Valeri, Deputy Chairman of the Société des Bains de Mer, emphasises the importance of the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo as an essential part of Monegasque culture and an indispensable stop for every traveller to the Principality. The reopening is not only a tribute to the glorious past, but also a promise for the future, in which the legend of Monte-Carlo will continue.
