All eyes are on Cannes right now as some of Hollywood’s biggest stars are walking the red carpet of the world’s biggest film festival. However, the Croisette is not the only place on the French Riviera to celebrate movies. Over in Monaco, an elegant and low-key restaurant, the Huit et demi, is also playing tribute to screen legends, contemporary or not, but in a much quieter way.
Located in the Condamine at the corner of rue Princesse Caroline and rue Langle, and named after the 1963 Italian film directed by Federico Fellini, Eight and a half is one of the best kept secret in the principality. Very popular with office workers during the week, this relaxing and well-priced eatery is not yet overcrowded with tourists at nights or on weekends.
