Welcome to Monaco!

The Monaco Yacht Show is the one and only occasion in the year – and in the world – to discover the greatest of superyachting in the glamorous setting of Monaco.
Where it all happens
Even after all these years, the Monaco Yacht Show remains the most important show in the yachting calendar. At FairPromotion, the Monaco Yacht Show is certainly a jam packed and exciting time, with all of our clients currently participating every year. With so many highly customized stands accompanying the latest and most impressive yachts around, the show proves to be just as exciting to visitors as it does to us.
The ‘business meets consumer’ part of the show is what makes it especially interesting to us, and even though everyone is crazily busy and working hard to make the show a roaring success, the huge events calendar is a definite highlight. See our Monaco Leisure Guide, with all the fun spots to visit around the harbor.
Great bites to eat!
Try the new world famous inhouse restaurant of the FAIRMONT hotel.
PEILLON – AUBERGE DE LA MADONE
You’ll find this awesome auberge only around 45 minutes away from Monaco and nestled deep in the mountains. With a fantastic chef creating a daily menu, head here for lunch. Trust us, the drive is worth it.
ROQUEBRUNE – VISTA PALACE HOTEL
If you’re looking for excellent Mediterranean cuisine in more of a sophisticated, formal setting, then Vistaero is the place for you. Alongside exquisite dishes, the restaurant serves breathtaking views over the Monaco harbour.
CAP D’AIL – LA PINEDE
Not too far from Monaco you can sit on the front row. No crowds and comparatively serene, experience the clear blue water of the Mediterranean here.
Serving simple but simply unforgettable steaks and a prime selection of meat dishes, quality is key at Beef Bar. Set in a very modern but cosy setting, they have recently opened their Raw Bar.
The menu at Mozza is, as the name suggests, full of Mozzarella, but is also bursting with less cheesy culinary delights. Try the Black Angus burger with truffle and risotto frutti di mare. Oh, and don’t forget the outstanding cocktail menu!
Serving innovative, appetizing and tasty dishes, Buddha Bar is so good that it also made it to our Dubai guide. The sushi here is both artistic and delicious – make sure you try some after-sushi dance moves in their world renowned bar!
Although a steep walk up from the show, Le Pinnochio is a palace worth aching for! Sit outside and enjoy the mediterranean weather, starting with the buffalo mozzarella, followed by the mouthwatering pasta vongole, all topped off with a glass of limoncello.
Don’t want your suit to get messy over some classic Italian cuisine? Head to L’Abbondanza, wear a ‘house bib’ and eat the most delicious pasta with meatballs, hassle free.
Already looking forward to that fine Chinese cuisine in Hainan? Then skip the Nicoise and steak tartare and visit this gastronomically mind-blowing restaurant. The three world renowned restaurateurs certainly know how to exemplify beauty, style and uncompromised quality.
YOSHI – METROPOLE HOTEL
Modern, healthy Japanse food served in a spectacularly designed restaurant with a fantastic ambiance. The restaurant room has a sushi bar, and opens into a Japanese-inspired garden.
HUIT & DEMI
Exhausted after a busy day at the show? Just a short walk away lies Huit & Demi, where great wine and perfect lamb chops go hand in hand in once of Monaco’s most captivating restaurant streets.
Bella Vita is located very close to the show, and provides gorgeous lounge seats to relax in style and engross yourself in the regattas always on display here. A highlight is definitely the ravioli with creamy truffle sauce.
This is by far the closest, and cheapest, quality restaurant in Monaco. We recommend any of their pasta dishes – a perfect stop for a delicious lunch!

RUE PRINCESSE CAROLINE
Forgot your dancing shoes? Not a problem, there are great terraces in this street.
This is on show site, but don’t let the convenience influence your wise decision making skills! Word of advice: don’t fall asleep on your stand…
- Don’t forget to bring your ECCO comfort shoes to the show and switch shoes at 06:30pm sharp to avoid aching feet for the whole show
- Travelling alone? It’s way more time and cost efficient to take the heli instead of a taxi to or from Monaco +37792050050
- If your accommodation is far away from the show and trains really aren’t your thing, book a driver beforehand. Monaco is not famous for it’s abundance of taxis
- If you’re located within the big tents – bring a sweater! The air con works VERY well…
- Good news for the uptown people: Starbucks!
- The best public toilet at the show (complete with hand towels) is left of the swimming pool
- The closest ATM machine is on boulevard, above swimming pool
- Don’t feel like goin out? Let FairPromotion bring food and drinks to your stand! Find the menus on www.fairpromotion.com.
