Nobuyuki "Nobu" Matsuhisa, the acclaimed and highly influential celebrity Chef and owner of Nobu restaurants has settled down in the Principality of Monaco at the Fairmont Monte Carlo!

Recognized worldwide for his amazing cuisine, mixing traditional Japanese dishes and South American spices and aromas, he says: “For me, cooking is most about giving my customers little surprises that will lead them to make discoveries about their own latent tastes. It’s about communicating my kokoro through every single dish I make”.

OUr visit to Nobu was great! The food was excellent, I might not order so many rolls due to simplicity of them. But everything else on menu was great! Atmosphere and view - fantastic! Along with service!

The restaurant has the feel of an upmarket canteen so nothing special about the look and feel. The food quality was excellent but the service was a little rushed and as customers we didn’t feel listened to (service a tad pushy). I was expecting a more refined dining experience. However, elements of the meals were beautiful though one or two things lacked imagination and one combination was very disappointing. A mixed experience overall. The bar area also had the feel of a pick up joint which also tarnishes any establishment.

Had such an amazing time celebrating my husbands 40th Birthday at the wonderful NOBU... food was outstanding & service was exceptional, our waiter was brilliant as he advised what we should order as we hadn’t been before, we were more than happy with our choices & they even made a fuss of my husband as it was his special birthday. Highly recommend a visit when in Monte Carlo, we will definitely be returning when we go back ..5*

Nobu was offering a celebratory menu for their anniversary and I wish they had considered what they were serving. While the menu was only €55, that is the only redeeming quality. The first course was good, but that was the end of anything positive. The second course of sushi included a piece of salmon, tuna, and 3 cucumber roll pieces. I did not expect to be eating the most basic forms of sushi at nobu. They were fine, but they lack any complexity. The beef main was again simplistic and did not show any creativity or complexity in flavor. The service was fine but definitely not outstanding.

Always a big fan of Nobu and their sister restaurants Matsuhisa, food is always good and the service excellent. Pricing is a little heavy especially when I have visited Japanese restaurants equally good and half the price.

If you don't have time to read lots of reviews or visit multiple restaurants then Nobu is always good as the food is consistently good and you know you will have a good meal.

The main reason for the poor ranking was the service. We have traveled many times to France, and since we speak a bit of french, the french people have normally been quite nice. This night was different. The server was not so much rude, as impatient. She assured us the filet under her style of cooking, meat on a hot iron plate, was the same filet I received with teriyaki. My wife's meal was inedible. Not only was it a poor cut, too tough to chew, but not nearly a true filet. It also came 20 minutes before mine. So we got to watch each other eat. Her response was that people sometimes share the meal my wife ordered. A-we never said anything about sharing. In fact, it was clearly her meal. B-How do we know what others do.
C-if you know we have not eaten there before, maybe an explanation. My meal was fine, but not exceptional. I'd stay away from this place.

The food was as one would expect at a Nobu, albeit the black cod was too dry; however the disappointing aspect was being prompted more like told to leave a tip which left a bitter after taste. I'd spent 600 euros plus on a meal for four people, I don't need to be told to leave a tip

We was staying at the Fairmont for my partners birthday weekend and booked Nobu for the night of his actual birthday with our friends.

Our waitress started off great but the service throughout was terrible. We was forgotten about most of the evening, having to chase our second drink. And the third didn’t even arrive. We was fed up of waiting so didn’t even order desert. Such a shame as we had such high hopes for Nobu.

Le serveur nous a proposé un menu à partager pour 4 à 125€, en oubliant préciser que c’était 125€ par personne ...

Donc tout était très bon, bonne ambiance etc., mais nous étions venus avec un budget de 200€ maximum, et en acceptant la proposition du serveur, nous nous sommes avec une note de 500€ alors que nous ne nous y attendions absolument pas (première fois dans un restaurant japonais).

The servers were trying but rushed around and slow to return. More like a fast food restaurant than fine dining. Ceviche was great. Fish was completely dry and overcooked. We sent it back. Server tried to get us to just put sauce on it. thankfully we were on the balcony outside. Inside was pure pandemonium. Except for dry overcooked fish, food was superb. But the ambiance is Chucky Cheese

If you want to experience ambience, and a great view Nobu is the place. However, if you want a meal with your family that provides good value forget Nobu. This was a one and done deal.

Was our favorite meal in Monte Carlo and the service matched the food which is very uncommon in Europe and France. Service was top-notch and we had an amazing time. We got Nobu staples like the yellowtail jalapeño and the crispy rice with yellow tail. Standout was the dried miso spinach salad with lobster - would never have ordered it, but our server recommended it and it was divine. We wanted to go back for that salad! Overall, a fabulous experience and recommend to anyone looking for an amazing meal and experience in Monaco. Only downside is that they are building land outside in the ocean so the view is a bit obstructed. We ate inside but then finished with cocktails on the terrace overlooking the ocean - fabulous!
