Restaurants in Monaco range from touristy pizza joints to top-quality gastronomic venues catering to a well-heeled clientele. French and Italian cuisine prevail, though you'll find a full line-up of international fare. Don't miss the quintessential Monégasque specialty, barbajuans (deep-fried ravioli). Key restaurant zones include bd des Moulins near the Casino, the Les Condamines port and market, and the narrow streets behind the cathedral in Le Rocher.

Gourmet Ice

When you start to feel the heat, follow locals away from the tourist crowd to the kitchen boutique of Corsican maître glacier Pierre Geronimi. The master ice-cream maker, the darling of every gastronomic chef around, crafts extraordinary flavours: beetroot and raspberry, pistachio and almond, pine nuts and honey, tomato and basil, champagne and mojito. Buy his creations straight in a cone or tub, or as a gourmet cocktail in a stylish verrine (glass jar).
