La Colombe D’Or: Monte Carlo

La Colombe d’Or Review

For many decades, the “Golden Dove” has been St-Paul’s most celebrated restaurant — not for cutting-edge cuisine or exotic experiments, but for its remarkable art collection. You can dine amid Mirós, Picassos, Dufys, Signacs, and Calders. In fair weather everyone tries for a seat on the terrace. You can start with a basket of crudités (raw vegetables) or a summer truffle salad before venturing for a rack of lamb or an oven-baked beef with gratin dauphinois(potato). The rustic cuisine acts as a subtle foil to this mythical place.

La Colombe also runs several guest rooms (13 doubles, 12 apartments) in an original 16th-century stone house; two wings were added in the 1950s, one of which stretches into the garden next to the pool. Some units have exposed stone and ceiling beams; all are comfortable, with air-conditioning, minibars, and TVs. Prices are 250€-430€.

  1. Like your website, but La Colombe d’Or is in St. Paul de Vence which is in the hills above Nice, not in Monte Carlo, which is maybe 15 miles or so (not sure) east of Nice. I was in St. Paul in 2006, and even though the prices were hefty to eat there, they allowed us to come in and look at Picasso’s murals. St. Paul is a really charming and very ritzy little town. We stayed in a motor hotel a few miles downhill.
