Since his arrival in November 2003, French starred-chef, Michel de Matteis, has lent his exceptional savoir-faire to the Royal Palm, leading gastronomic hotel in the Indian Ocean. Awarded the Meilleur ouvrier de France prize in 1991 and winner of the Pierre Taittinger culinary prize (beating 450 competitors), Michel’s career began at the Royal Monceau kitchens in Paris and has gained most of his experience in Parisian restaurants. He worked chez Taillèvent before joining the Saint James Club Hotel and then moving on to La Tour d’Argent as deputy chef. Then it was onto Hôtel du Château de Divonne, and 5 years as chef de cuisine at the Mirabeau Hotel’s La Coupole (1 Michelin star), in Monaco. His preference is for subtle flavours and his culinary repertoire can now be enjoyed at the Royal Palm’s three restaurants, La Goélette, La Brezza and Le Bar Plage.
