Michelin starred Elsa is Monaco’s first one hundred percent organic restaurant with Ecocert certification that offers a contemporary menu packed with surprises, whilst exclusively using local seasonal produce.
Elsa, which is part of the Monte Carlo Société des Bains de Mer group is a bright and modern restaurant with a terrace that overlooks the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean Sea. However the essence of Elsa is the successful marrying of pure organic food with gastronomical excellence.
This unique one star Michelin restaurant is among the elite of Monaco’s gastronomical locations thanks to the talent and creativity of its executive chef, Paolo Sari. The Michelin guide refers to Elsa as one of the best addresses in Monte Carlo to find cuisine of great finesse.
Paolo Sari is as passionate as they come and he has one firm rule – one hundred percent organic cuisine, including everything from the salt and pepper to the brut and rosé Champagnes.
Chef Sari’s day in the kitchen starts with a rigorous selection of food products including fruits, vegetables and herbs supplied by farmers from neighbouring villages such as Saint-Jeannet in France. This reflects his Venetian philosophy of „a healthy mind in a healthy body“.
His culinary philosophy has developed hand-in-hand with his extraordinary life path, which included a three-month repose in a Buddhist monastery which fuelled his cooking ideals.
Chef Sari’s respect for nature has been rewarded. Elsa is the first gastronomic restaurant in the PACA region to be certified „Bio“, or organic, by the certifying body Ecocert.
Elsa offers twenty carefully selected dishes on its menu by which Chef Sari has brought together gourmet food and healthy cuisine, the ultimate achievement. His cuisine, which is „an ode to the Mediterranean” requires strong work ethics, which are clearly reflected in every dish. The chef’s team focuses on local produce with a seasonal approach. At Elsa, be ready to undergo a pure and organic dining experience.
The restaurant is featured in the “Signature Dishes of the Principality of Monaco” book as one of Monaco’s most iconic places.
Can be privatized for up to 80 people on the terrace for cocktails.
