Located between the main road at the foot of the city and the main harbour area, it’s close to the waterfront and faces the part of the motor racing circuit which runs past the very expensive and lavish yachts that moor here all-year round. It’s part of a row of bars and restaurants built facing the waterfront and only really visible from that side. Unless the weather is bad or it’s late at night you’ll always certainly want to sit outside and there’s plenty of seats (some stools, some sofa type chairs) around a fairly dense set of tables all in the shade given the many summer months of sun the principality receives. Inside the decor, fittings and fixtures are all very dark, almost black in colour and plastic looking with seating around a central square bar and the kitchen visible at the back wall. It brews its own beers and there’s a drinks menu brought to the table which should tell you the latest ones available. It seems to have a number of core brews although not all of these will always be on, as well as a seasonal option. There’ll be at least three on offer and you have the option of ordering a three glass taster if you wish. It’s not a cheap place but the setting makes up for this. There’s public toilets right next door to the bar but it has its own inside so you don’t need to pay when the time to spend a penny arises.

Visited on a monday lunch and I was almost alone at the place. The bartender suggested me a tray of three beers (blonde, blanche and the seasonal) in 15 cl glasses = 6 Euros, which is quite cheap when it comes to Monaco. Nice and helpful staff, Didn´t try the food.

Visited on a hot summer afternoon. Easy to find at the centre of the port. Seems like a verynice place, fooded looked very enjoyable, beers are great, although only three of them. A very likeable place wirh a certain charm. Easy to sit there and just watch time fly by while enjoying your beer.

Ambiance is average, some big screens against on wall, some communal tables and outside seating. Seems torn between friendly and trendy. Waiter was a little slow, but was covering too many tables so it wasn’t his fault. If I could catch his eye he’d come at his next opportunity, but that might be three or four people later. Busboy was super attentive. They seems to have only their three taps for beer; otherwise everyone seemed to be drinking something other than beer. Food was very good. Excellent roast beef club, very good hamberger. Good choices of condiments, Dijon mustard was hot with horseradish, which was a nice touch. About €14 a plate, which was very reasonable for the area, and 500ml of beer was only €3.50 during happy hour from 18:30 to 20:30. Overall, an affordable place to eat and drink in Monaco, which is almost unheard of, and the only place to get that Monaco tick.

Visited on a Saturday during lunch. This place is easy to find if you come with the train from Nice. They only had 3 beers on tap, Blonde, Blanche and Ambree. The beers were drinkable but nothing to write home about. A flight with the beers cost 5 EUR. The hamburger was tasty. (it cost 14 EUR)
The staff spoke English and the place was not crowded at all during my visit. A must visit when visiting Monaco.

Lovely sunny afternoon on my visit (18th Sep 2013). My little party of four sat outside, no view of posh yachts for us: huge tents were being furnished for the ’Monaco Boat Show’ and they blocked our vision on all sides, the sun was nice though.
Very modern design inside, and outside too. Three beers on-tap, tried them all, OK but nothing special. Toilets were clean and at the rear of the bar, so you get to see everything when you pop for a pee, or at least I did. However it was so bright outside and so dimly lit inside it took me a while to take in the silver’grey decor and furniture within.
A good and pleasant ’tick’ which not many will ever get, pleased I made the effort to find it.

Magnifique endroit, situé à un jet de pierre du port et adjacent a une grande piscine publique. Vue sur Monte Carlo... Il a pire emplacements! De grandes tables bien espacées sous des auvents modernes. Une faune de touristes et de plageuses viennent s’y rafraîchir. Un service attentionné, courtois, mais peu imprégné de la culture brassicole. On nous a offert de rencontrer le brasseur qui nous a fait visiter la salle de brassage (inox du plancher au plafond, équipement haut de gamme et savamment disposé). Trois fûts maisons constituent la totalité des bières offertes. Prix dans la norme.

Nice outside seating, not too pricey considering the location. Good food, especially the cheese. The beer was rather mundane.

Had 90 minutes free time from our tour around palace, I spotted the swimming pool from hillside and knew brewpub close buy and forced my wife to run down to harbor so i could get Monaco tick. Modern interior and nice patio although overlooking scaffolding from grand prix at time. Listed 4 beers only had 2 but pleasant waiter and nice weather made fun time. Desert and coffee good
