Gourmands are often the first to proclaim that the fine dining restaurant experience is all about exquisite details. A fully immersive culinary discovery that tantalizes every sense. It’s that feeling of anticipation when you are escorted to your perfectly set table, it’s the ambiance that lifts the spirits, the soft background music that soothes the soul, the stellar customer service, the knowledge that the best chefs are working their culinary magic with the highest quality ingredients in the kitchen.

Here in Cyprus, gastronomes from across the country and beyond have been gravitating towards Ayia Napa Marina and L’Atelier Robuchon for the ultimate fine dining restaurant experience, indulging in Joël Robuchon’s tantalizing and fresh take on French haute cuisine. This is where authentic flavours reign supreme, where chefs become storytellers, and where patrons delight in dishes served upon a star in the finest ambiance against the mesmerizing Mediterranean blue.

The star of the fine dining show: Getting to know Joël Robuchon

The late French chef, Joël Robuchon, is world-renowned for holding the highest record of Michelin Guide stars ever awarded in the world, at one time holding 32 Michelin stars across his restaurants. He was also notoriously hailed as the ‘Chef of the Century’ by Gault Millau guide in 1989. A true visionary, he revolutionized the fine-dining universe, focusing on simplicity, consistency, and excellence, while utilizing the highest quality ingredients, elevating hearty fare to a new level.

He pioneered the ‘cuisine moderne’ style of cooking, placing emphasis on a handful of ingredients where flavour was paramount.  At the age of 50, he retired from the kitchen, allowing him the freedom to travel and garner new influences, particularly from Asia. His time in Japan proved to be highly influential on his cooking style and he credited it with a heightened awareness of texture in his dishes. Upon his return to Europe, he created a new restaurant concept, inspired by the experience of the sushi counter. This marked the birth of L’Atelier Robuchon.
