Chef patron Mauro Colagreco opened Mirazur in 2006, and in less than a year was awarded its first star by Michelin. Since then, the restaurant and Mauro have gone on to achieve huge international critical acclaim and numerous national awards, a second and then third Michelin star in 2019 and “Chevalier De L’Ordre National du Mérite” (one of the highest civilian honours accorded by the French Republic).
After completing his training at Buenos Aires’ Gato Dumas School, the most prestigious culinary school in Latin America, and having worked in the best restaurants in the city, Mauro Colagreco moved to France in 2001. Staying for four years, he worked with great French chefs including Bernard Loiseau, Alain Passard, Alain Ducasse and Guy Martin in Paris. In 2006, he decided to open his own restaurant. Attracted particularly by France, because of the language, and by Italy, thanks to his roots, he would ultimately settle in Menton on the French-Italian Border.
Mauro Colagreco’s cuisine defies categorisation. His dishes embrace the surroundings in a unique and all-encompassing way. Mauro’s skill lies in his sensitive balance of taste and flavour, allowing each magnificent ingredient its place.
