“Les Ambassadeurs” the return of a legend.

Step into the historic hotel Métropole Monte Carlo, and let yourself be surrounded by the scents and flavors that only Mediterranean cuisine at its best can offer.

Established in 1886, the Hôtel Métropole has been attracting an international elite since its opening. Its patrician palace facade, in a flamboyant neoclassical style typical of Belle Époque residences, and its landscaped gardens make it a sought-after vacation spot and one of the most desirable establishments on the French Riviera.

In the 1920s, the hotel opened the restaurant “Les Ambassadeurs,” which immediately became an iconic address in gastronomy. The restaurant quickly gained success among an international clientele, frequented by aristocrats and diplomats from around the world.

Today, after one century, Chef Christophe Cussac pays tribute to this legend, opening the new “Les Ambassadeurs by Christophe Cussac.” Being himself an iconic chef of Monte Carlo, Christophe Cussac will propose a contemporary and gourmet Mediterranean cuisine, inspired by his own gastronomic heritage.

The warm atmosphere of the restaurant, designed by Jacques Garcia, will promise a moment of sharing where guests will be invited to rediscover the flavors of the Mediterranean, sublimated by the respect of French culinary art.

Les Ambassadeurs by Christophe Cussac is a new culinary destination set to become an essential stop for those looking to indulge in exceptional dishes while enjoying the iconic charm of the Principality.

Christophe Cussac, a marker of simple great cuisine.

Journeys like that of Christophe Cussac belong to a certain kind: that of chefs who live through their era by being at the right place at the right time. Few can claim to have known the Jamin- Robuchon era (1981), followed by Troisgros Roanne, and then go on to the family abbey inn of Saint Michel, in Tonnerre in Burgundy (two stars), the Reserve de Beaulieu (two stars), and finally the Metropole (since 2004) to accompany Joël Robuchon ; whilst still retaining those two stars.

“Over time I have learned to simplify, to go straight to the products, without complicating them. My goal is that when someone tastes my cooking, they immediately understand. And remember it. That’s my ideal. Keep it simple, but above all good”. – Christophe Cussac

The new look of Les Ambassadeurs by Jacques Garcia.

As for the décor, it follows the graphic rhythm of the hotel orchestrated by the famous architect-decorator Jacques Garcia. In the restaurant “Les Ambassadeurs by Christophe Cussac”, the Garcia style accompanies the spirit of the new menu with luminous tones: bronze, ivory, luminous yellow, gold, for a warm and Mediterranean spirit, creating a fresh and welcoming atmosphere. The “Garcia style” offers a unique design in one of the Principality’s most anticipated gastronomic restaurants. Everything in the design is brought together to create an atmosphere that is both friendly and spectacular, a way of maintaining the prestige and the “social dining” appeal that is so dear to the Monegasques.
