Dining out used to be an excuse for me to eat unhealthy, mostly because I thought there were never wholesome alternatives on a menu. Since moving to Monaco, however, I’ve been eating out nearly on a daily basis and have had to find ways to eat out without freaking out.
I have a gaggle of go-to eateries. I tend to hit Mozza (11 Rue du Portier) for the chicken and vegetables or for the Dover sole. When craving a good piece of meat, I’ll definitely head to BeefBar (42 Quai Jean-Charles Rey) and order their barbeque sauce mash on the side – not exactly the healthiest choice, so we’ll keep that between us.
When I’m in the mood for fish with a view, I’ll go for the seabass at Horizon at the Fairmont (12 ave des Spélugues) or venture over to Anjuna in Eze (28 ave de la Liberté).
Most often you’ll find me at Eqvita, Djokovich’s vegan restaurant 7 Rue du Portier, chomping down on a vegan burger with sweet potato fries or the sweet jacket potato with mushrooms. It’s always a toss-up between these two mouthwatering dishes.
With a little practice, I’ve developed some foolproof tips for enjoying eating out without going all out.
The key to eating out is pleasure. Eat slowly, enjoy your company and stop when you’re gently satisfied, around 80% full. I’m not very good at this because I love food so much but I remind myself that this will not be my last meal and that it’s worth keeping room for the next one … or for my coconut sorbet.

Police from the Italian Riviera city of Bordighera have arrested a Maltese national on suspicion of having illegally detained and robbed an unidentified citizen of Monaco, the Independent of Malta reports.
Italian media said that a 29-year-old Maltese – identified only by his initials G.M. – had been arrested on Tuesday night by Italian police after a 30-year-old Monaco citizen ran out into the street and hailed a passing ambulance asking for help after having been robbed in a garage.
According to the alleged victim, at around 2 pm he had been invited by G.M., an acquaintance of his, to his home in Bordighera, apparently to show him a car he could possibly buy from him.
When the Monagasque entered the garage, instead of a car he found two other men who threatened him, beat him up by kicking and punching him, and took €900 from him saying it was money that the victim had taken from them.The victim, who denied having taken any money from the Maltese and his companions, was held in the garage for at least an hour at the mercy of his captors and was able to escape when they were momentarily distracted. He ran into the road and saw a passing ambulance that he flagged down for help. The victim will be in recovery for at least 10 days, having sustained a number of bruises to the face and chest. The Italian police apprehended the Maltese, but his accomplices are reportedly still being sought. He was arraigned and granted bail. Italian investigators are now examining the relationship between the victim and his assailants, as well as the motive behind the attack.
