L’Abysse Monte-Carlo: A slice of Japanese haute cuisine

Published on July 08, 2024Updated on July 10, 2024

L’Abysse Monte-Carlo is an elegant restaurant in which two culinary worlds merge: the contemporary cuisine of chef Yannick Alléno, who holds a constellation of Michelin stars, and the daring creativity and traditional kaiseki gastronomy of chef Yasunari Okazaki. It's a place knowing how to take their guests on a journey to a world of fine dining, where the art of minimalism prevails, for a unique culinary experience in a spectacular setting.

A meeting of two worlds

Having already developed a two-starred address in Paris at Pavillon Ledoyen, chef Yannick Alléno and chef  Yasunari Okazaki are now rolling out the experience to the Principality. “Coming to Monte-Carlo means making the most of the local sustainable fish supplies,” points out Yannick Alléno. “I wanted this place to be a sanctuary, where each bite is a genuine thrill. Ours is spontaneous cuisine, it is a meeting of our two minds.”

"A sanctuary, where each bite is a genuine thrill"

A culinary japanese experience in the heart of the Principality

The pair’s creative dishes can be enjoyed in the dining room or at the central bar, which brings sushi master Yasunari Okazaki face to face with ten guests. Securing one of these prime spots means a chance to admire the dexterity of this master of movement, this custodian of the know-how that was handed down to him by his father, then his kaiseki and sushi masters over many years of learning.

He now draws inspiration from the Mediterranean and its catch of the day. Traditional dishes with a modern twist can be enjoyed while watching the master’s fluid movements.  His culinary talent preserves the energy and perfect texture of his creations. The dishes are served with fine wines from the hotel’s beautiful cellar and precious, carefully selected sakes, and followed by fresh, light desserts by pastry chef Maxime Vaslin.

Matières naturelles et artistes contemporains : une atmosphère raffinée

Enter and immerse yourself in the here and now. Enjoy the light, bright interior design by Laurence Bonnel-Alléno which combines natural materials with works by contemporary artists. The restaurant is decorated with a colossal ceramic coral walls by William Cogin, a wrought iron and porcelain chandelier by Célia Bertrand, leather and ceramic vases by Silver Sentimenti and wooden bag-rests designed by Rino Claessens. A soothing and refined experience!

L'Abysse Monte-Carlo reflects contemporary Japanese inspiration, creating a setting where the mind can fully revel in the culinary experience, in a soothing and refined atmosphere.
