  Cafe de Paris
by NiceLife

Ouch this place is expensive!. A miserable 25cl glass of beer clocked 6 euro. The menu described it as a "demi". I understand that - a demi - a half, as in a half litre. No. A half, as in "half as much as you expect". When I asked the waiter "was not a demi a half litre?, he sneered "You can buy two if that is what you want". Twelve euro for a half litre of beer? No thank you!. He shrugged. This is Monaco. Everything is stupid priced. If you don't like it, why are you here?.

He's right of course. What makes this place interesting is the beautiful face of money. So don't complain. The people watching is unrivalled. Look apon it as better value than the beer.

Fun Alternatives: There is no alternative. Pay and enjoy. On few other places on earth will you have the opportunity to see people who's only purpose in life is spending money.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
