Guy Savoy

Guy Savoy



Guy Savoy grew up in Bourgoin-Jallieu, near the gastronomic epicenter of Lyon, France, and was surrounded by a culinary culture where seasonal food products were a part of everyday life. This attention to the “perfect” product and the terroir (land) from which it comes is the backbone of his cooking.

In 1980, he opened his first restaurant, RESTAURANT GUY SAVOY, on the Rue Duret in Paris, where he won his first Michelin star only one year later. In 1987, Savoy moved his restaurant to its current location, just a few steps from the Arc de Triomphe, where he quickly established himself and his restaurant as two of the world’s most valued culinary treasures. Its coveted three Michelin stars are widely recognized as the pinnacle in culinary achievement.

The May 2006 launch of RESTAURANT GUY SAVOY Caesars Palace, Las Vegas was one of the most eagerly anticipated restaurant openings in the United States. This intimate fine-dining venue seats approximately 75 guests and was designed to perfectly recreate the elegant and sophisticated design elements of the original RESTAURANT GUY SAVOY.​
