Le Louis XV by Alain Ducasse

Provencal products, especially vegetables and herbs are the main focus at Alain Ducasse  restaurant Le Louis XV in Monaco. Maybe the restaurant’s plates are gold plated and the sumptuous interior is anything but modern, the cooking is contemporary and light.

The menu reflects Mediterranean and Provencal cooking  traditions and is divided into such sections as “The Vegetable Garden” , “The Sea” , “Italian Style” or “The Farm”. It is quite unique that you can order both, and French, and Italian specialities at a 3 Michelin stars restaurant. In fact the straightforwardness and sincerity of the food at  Le Louis XV is somehow an opposition  to the grandiose surroundings but maybe that what makes the restaurant so exceptional. More i eat out at gastronomic restaurants, more i realise that genius lies in simplicity.
