RESTAURANT LE LOUIS XV – ALAIN DUCASSE
Le Louis XV is iconic, a three Michelin star restaurant offering a unique culinary experience inspired by Alain Ducasse, one of the greatest Chefs of recent times.
The restaurant, located at the famous Hôtel de Paris, has been recently renovated with a new look, designed by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku, and highlights the joyous lifestyle of the French Riviera, the „art de vivre“. In fact, all of the time-pieces are stopped at 12 o’clock in the room as a reminder to stillness and to stop and savour every glorious mouthful of this delicate menu.
Chefs Dominique Lory and Alain Ducasse have created a modern, authentic menu. Fresh juices and sauces, intense and aromatic broths and fresh condiments and spices marry to reveal the precise flavours and seasonings of their Mediterranean cuisine.
Alain Ducasse is one of the world‘s most iconic chefs with a passion for sharing his knowledge and creativity. Ducasse has been reigning over the Hôtel de Paris‘ Louis XV – Alain Ducasse restaurant for nearly 30 years.
Chef Ducasse was brought up on a farm in France’s Landes region with local country fares of wholesome chickens, wild ducks, geese, mushrooms and foie gras. A true contemporary chef, Ducasse began his culinary career at the age of sixteen and with the knowldege of nature attained during his childhood, he learnt how to respect, preserve and cook with local ingredients.
In 1987, Ducasse began his adventures in Monaco. H.S.H. Prince Rainier II of Monaco and the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer offered him the position of head chef at the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo. The ambitious young Ducasse made a promise to Prince Rainier that in less than four years he would earn three Michelin stars for Monaco, the highest distinction in the culinary world.
Just three years later in 1990, when Alain Ducasse was 33 years old, and the restaurant 33 months old, the Restaurant Louis XV became the first hotel restaurant to be awarded three Michelin stars. Ducasse contributed to the success and initiation of other hotel restaurants, however he now poured all of his time and energy into his own name-sake restaurant: the Louis XV – Alain Ducasse.
Surrounding himself with top professionals, Alain Ducasse recruits his own restaurant and kitchen teams. Just as he trusted Chef de Cuisine Dominique Lory, who has a strong love of the Mediterranean cuisine to maintain the exceptional gourmet quality of Louis XV – Alain Ducasse.
The Ducasse-Lory team offers culinary delights and produce of the highest quality in a series of magical settings. The maritime-inspired menu prioritises authenticity and a delicate palette of flavours with delightful surprises just a step away from the heart of Monaco. The dishes are vigorous, intense and flavourful and striking to the eye, revealing precision in taste. A symphony of flavours.
To compliment the magical dishes Hôtel de Paris offers one of the largest reserves in the world of exceptional vintage and terroir-driven wines.
Without any doubt the restaurant Louis XV – Alain Ducasse is the crown of the culinary scene in the Principality of Monaco, a fantastical world of elegant grandeur and culinary perfection.
The restaurant is featured in the “Signature Dishes of the Principality of Monaco” book as one of Monaco’s most iconic places.

Premium water suggestion to make any event outstanding:
Svalbarði is among the very few water brands that are sourced from truly exotic places. To be more precise Svalbarði is harvested directly from pieces of Norwegian icebergs that are up to 4,000 years old and about to melt into the sea. Svalbarði combines business success with positive impact on the environment and society, while it offers a “light as air” taste of pristine ice that has been locked up for millennia. Read our article
