World renowned Chef Joël Robuchon named his restaurant Yoshi as this translates to „goodness“ in Japanese and the key to the success of Yoshi is the simplicity in the traditions of freshly prepared natural cuisine. Yoshi has been awarded a Michelin star and serves world-class Japanese specialities.

The elegantly chic décor is designed by French interior architect Didier Gomez, and the ambience of the restaurant Yoshi blends the clarity of ebony, stone and silk with wonderful light in hues of green, white and ivory. The elegantly written menu is in perfect balance with the serene ambience.

Thanks to exterior landscaper Jacques Messin, the restaurant opens out to a Japanese-inspired garden.

When he envisioned Yoshi, Joël Robuchon asked Takéo Yamazaki to join as his Head Chef. Takéo Yamazaki is a brilliant Chef with a culinary flair that has been his passion since the age of fourteen. He mastered Japanese cuisine in Osaka, in his homeland Japan before he was selected to join a French cookery school.

During his culinary journey from Japan to Monaco, Takéo Yamazaki has remained passionate and humble and always offers a warm and smiling welcome to his guests at Yoshi. He has developed himself from the bottom of the business to the top, to the highest ranks of gastronomy.

“Offering the exceptional in total simplicity is undoubtedly the most challenging task. In Monaco, we are fortunate to have a discerning clientele in search of natural simplicity, and Yoshi’s success results from the quest for naturalness.” – Joël Robuchon

Interestingly Takéo Yamazaki met Joël Robuchon in Tokyo and not in France or Monaco. A long-lasting professional relationship developed between the two men, which has led to the success of Yoshi since it opened in 2008. The restaurant is totally unique and was awarded a Michelin star in 2010.

“The simpler the food, the harder it is to prepare it well. You want to truly taste what it is you are eating. So that goes back to the trend of fine ingredients.

It is very Japanese. Preparing good ingredients very simply, without distractions from the flavour of the ingredient itself.” – Joël Robuchon

Guests come to Yoshi from all around the world to taste Nippon cuisine with a hint of French inspiration, giving the menu simple flavours and fragrances that have been developed from far afield and are totally unique. Supreme artistry!
