Nobu Matsuhisa

At its origin Nobu was created within the genius vision of Nobu Matsuhisa. Nobuyuki Matsuhisa began his career in Japan, before moving on to Peru, where he took his inspiration from the culinary culture and ingredients of the region. His first restaurant, which opened in 1987, offered imaginative dishes that saw him chosen as one of America’s 10 Best New Chefs in 1989 by Food & Wine magazine.

HelloMonaco went to Nobu with high expectations at their opening expectations that were more than fulfilled. 

HelloMonaco had the pleasure of experiencing the long-awaited reopening of Nobu at Fairmont Monte Carlo. The elegant interior received a tasteful retouch, setting the stage for an exceptional dining experience. From the moment you step inside, you’re treated like royalty by the incredibly friendly and attentive Nobu team, ensuring you feel right at home throughout the meal. Under the talented guidance of the new Nobu Fairmont Chef, Olivier Ronaldi, the food exceeds all expectations and shines through in every bite, making each dish a true gastronomic delight.

While there are a few new additions to the menu, it still maintains the classic Nobu flair. The Chilean Sea Bass, expertly prepared by Chef Damien Duviau from Nobu Dubai, was a perfect mix of simplicity and elegance, with that special Japanese touch. And the dessert, featuring a parade of fresh fruits, feels like a taste of summer. For any true food lover, a visit to Nobu at Fairmont Monte Carlo is an absolute must.

Whether you are a longtime fan or a first-time visitor, HelloMonaco will attest that new Nobu Monte Carlo promises to captivate your senses and elevate your culinary expectations.
