You should check that on monodoc or on http://www.go-mono.com/docs/.

Quick Sample, to get you started: (indentation helps)

AccelGroup accelGroup = new AccelGroup();
			
Window win = new Window ("Menu Sample App");

win.AddAccelGroup(accelGroup);

VBox box = new VBox (false, 2);

MenuBar mb = new MenuBar ();
			
MenuItem file_item = new MenuItem("_File");

Menu file_menu = new Menu ();
				
MenuItem exit_item = new MenuItem();
						
AccelLabel label = new Gtk.AccelLabel("");
							label.TextWithMnemonic = "E_xit";
							label.AccelWidget = exit_item;
							
exit_item.Child = label;
							
							exit_item.AddAccelerator("activate", accelGroup, new
AccelKey(Gdk.Key.B, Gdk.ModifierType.ShiftMask,
Gtk.AccelFlags.Visible));
							
							exit_item.Activated += new EventHandler (exit_cb);
							
file_menu.Append (exit_item);
							
file_item.Submenu = file_menu;
				
mb.Append (file_item);
			
box.PackStart(mb, false, false, 0);
			
win.Add (box);
win.ShowAll ();

I have tryed to run an app on windows after setting up mono and it run
fine. (It used gtk#)

Are you searching for the dlls in the MS' GAC on ir Mono's GAC?
