Monaco has some of the most luxurious real estate in the world. The Principality is one of the longest running hosts for the Formula 1 Grand Prix and the display of yachts in the port are enough to tempt anyone to visit. The array of shops and boutiques on the Avenue de Monte Carlo are sure to entice visitors and nights can be spent in the lavish surround of the Monte Carlo Casino. And then there are the stunning views of the Cote d’Azur, the easy access to Cannes and St Tropez by helicopter and the fantastic selection of fine dining options.

Gastronomic marvels are but some of the advantages of residing in Monaco; few places in the world have such a high concentration of gourmet restaurants. Accordingly, valuable information for the Principality’s inhabitants includes the knowledge of where to go for a corporate lunch – a conundrum that regularly perplexes the uninformed demographic. If you need to take your clients out and impress them, here are the top five places to go for a business lunch, handpicked to fulfil every businessperson’s requirements.
