McDonald's in Monaco


A lot of people are surprised to discover there is a McDonald's in Monaco. It's in Fontvieille above the supermarket complex.

Once I found out that McDonald's had successfully opened a [fancy-looking] restaurant right outside the Louvre museum in Paris, I knew there would be no stopping the Golden Arches in their search of worldwide domination ;-) Not that surprised, actually. ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Si Mc Do peut s'installer à Monaco alors... "tout fout l'camp ma pauvre Lucette, tout fout l'camp" moi je dis ;-(

As an American, it always saddens me to see the American fast food places in charming spots overseas. A shopping complex in Fontveille is a more suitable location than the squares in front of the Casino or the Royal Palace in Monaco.

In Oaxaca, Mexico, they had demonstrations that successfully kept McDonalds out of the Zocalo, although there are several in other parts of the city.

It's not nice to see a Mc.D. in Monaco.
The first opened on November 20, 1992. Above a supermarket and near a fastfood Asian restaurant called Zensen is Fontveille Shopping Center more a basic european shopping center than a Monaco one like the Metropole Shopping Center in Monte Carlo.

Dave from Costa Rica said that he is glad that Mc.D. is not near the Casino, but he is wrong.
An other is opened near the beginning of Larvotto Beach nearby the Fairmont Hotel.Above the tunnel entrance.

I don't like MC.D. and never eat it. For a 'snack'I go to little cafés where you can eat a real good meal for a good price

Is the second McDonald's in the NiBox, Robert? I've never seen that but then, like you, I never eat McDonald's!

Fiona T said...

Yes, the second one is in the NiBox, so fairly unobtrusive - we visited when the building first opened and it is probably fine for the youngsters who use the sports and nightclub facilities there...we prefer Lo S'fozio up the road for pizza!

Jilly said...

Thanks Fiona. Yes, it's for youngsters! Wonder why I don't qualify...? Thanks for the recommendation as to where to eat pizza. I'll remember that.

Yes, Jilly as Fiona already said,
it's in the NiBox. It's not as open as the Fontveille one.It's in the buiding.

I like the pizza's of the TipTop on
Av.des Spelugues (street level)

Ah, I remember it well. Not that we ate there, but quite liked the Carrefour there. Bought a few groceries to keep us going, rather than paying for expensive hotel food.

I'm glad the principality makes them tone down the signage. We've seen something similar in Kyoto, where the authorities think that the bright red normally used is incompatible with the city's historic architecture. They make the company use a dark rusty brown.

I like the colours here - different from the usual.
