A visit to Monaco couldn’t lack on my latest trip to the French Riviera. If you’re looking for a restaurant in the capitol of glamour and glitz, but would like to go a day without French cuisine, gourmet Chinese restaurant Song Qi might spark your interest. If not for the food, certainly for the interior design and gorgeous location with a spectacular view on the lush gardens. Song Qi’s menu, prepared by Michelin starred chef Alan Yau, offers authentic Chinese dim sum and seafood dishes, that are presented in a sleek and sophisticated ambiance.
The interior is art deco with a contemporary twist. Green velvet chairs and brass elements take you back to Shanghai’s 1930s golden age. The black and white chevron tiled floor, ornate details, and eastern inspired lamps add even more glamour to the space. The restaurant is located on 7 Avenue Princesse Grace.
