Guy Savoy (born 24 July 1953) is a French chef, who is the Head Chef and owner of the eponymous Guy Savoy restaurant in Paris and sister restaurant in Las Vegas, both of which have gained multiple Michelin stars.

He owns four other restaurants in Paris.


Guy Savoy was born on 24 July 1953 in Nevers. In 1955, his parents moved to Bourgoin-Jallieu, a town in Isère, where his father was a gardener and his mother owned a taproom that she would transform into a restaurant. After three years apprenticeship with the Troisgros brothers,[1] he owned his own restaurant in New York before opening in rue Duret, Paris in 1980, which received 2 Michelin stars in 1985. In 2017 his restaurant (La Monnaie de Paris) has been nominated by La Liste[2] as the best in the world.

He is married to Danielle Savoy and has 2 children: Caroline (born 21 January 1978) and Franck (born 4 June 1979).

Gordon Ramsay was trained under Guy Savoy, and has described him as his culinary mentor.[3][4][5]

Guy Savoy's eponymous restaurant at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, closed in February 2014, despite opening in 2010 to much fanfare, citing business reasons.[6]
