Chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, who is renowned all over the world for combining Japanese culture and cuisine with the flavours of South America in his own special way, has moved to the Fairmont Monte-Carlo, with a brand-new decorative scheme and a chic, cosy atmosphere with a bar, two private areas and a terrace overlooking the sea.

Nobu was born and grew up in Saitama in Japan.  He undertook a particularly rigorous apprenticeship in a well respected sushi bar in Tokyo, before opening a sushi bar in Peru.

In 1987, he opened his own restaurant, “Matsuhisa,” in Beverley Hills, which rapidly became fashionable. 

It was frequented by Hollywood stars such as Robert de Niro, who invited Nobu to open a restaurant on Manhattan Island in New York.

Other Nobu restaurants were opened in:
  • Tokyo
  • Milan
  • London
  • Honolulu
  • Peking
  • Moscow
  • Dubai
  • Budapest

His signature dishes include Black cod yuzu miso, Beef Tartare Wagyu and Snow Crab in a spicy sauce.
