Two Michelin Stars for Monaco’s New Restaurant by Chef Christophe Cussac!

Les Ambassadeurs restaurant by Christophe Cussac has been thrust into the spotlight after receiving an incredible two new Michelin Stars just nine months after it opened. The achievement is a resounding endorsement for Chef Christophe Cussac and his team, who have been offering exceptional culinary experiences at the Hotel Metropole since July.

“I am deeply honoured by this recognition from the Michelin Guide, and I would like to emphasise that these stars are the fruit of the hard work and devotion of my entire team. We have made this journey together, each member bringing their unique contribution, dedication and talent. They shine for every one of us, because we know that we can’t achieve great things alone. This is a collective victory, and I’m incredibly grateful to everyone who has contributed to our success,” said Chef Christophe Cussac.

The accomplishment is the culmination of a daunting challenge: to revive the gastronomic restaurant at the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, which had been closed since 2019. The Chef at the helm of the restaurant has a career spanning over 40 years.

Christophe Cussac’s path has been woven with some of the greatest talents of his time, including the Jamin-Robuchon era (1981) and Troisgros in Roanne. The Chef then managed his family’s Relais & ChГўteaux the Abbaye Saint-Michel in Tonnerre, Burgundy (two stars), the RГ©serve de Beaulieu (two stars) before arriving at the Hotel Metropole Monte Carlo (since 2004), alongside JoГ«l Robuchon (still boasting two stars).

With Les Ambassadeurs by Christophe Cussac, the Chef aims to capture the very essence of gastronomy: the perfection of movement, the serenity of meticulous work and the precise choreography of a full brigade.

“A culinary journey guided by the simplicity of a man… and of the dish,” states a recent press release by the Hotel Metropole.

Inaugurated in July 2023 and designed by Jacques Garcia, the warm and inviting setting holds promises of unforgettable experiences. Diners can rediscover simple, contemporary and authentic Mediterranean cuisine, magnified by an attachment to the French terroir. A tribute to the restaurant Les Ambassadeurs of the 1920s and a daily commitment now rewarded in the most beautiful way.

As part of their gastronomic symphony, the Hotel Metropole Monte Carlo is also home to Yoshi, the only Japanese Michelin-starred restaurant on the French Riviera since 2010, bringing the total number of stars for the establishment to three, a reflection of its ambition to light up Monaco’s culinary scene.
