Ahead of the grand opening of the South American fusion restaurant, the management team at Amazónico have announced that a handful of job positions are still up for grabs. 

Amazónico is looking to finalise its team of 190 employees before the destination restaurant opens its doors on the rooftop of the recently renovated Café de Paris on Friday 5th April.

According to comments made to Monaco Matin, 97% of the team has already been contracted, but a number of roles are yet to be filled. 

“We are still looking for sommeliers [and workers] in the kitchen and at the bar,” said Angelo Truisi, the assistant to the General Director of Amazónico. “Recruitment began at the end of 2022 because, initially, the opening was planned for July 2023. 80% of people recruited over the past year have waited and are staying with us because they want to be part of the adventure. We know that we offer the people who join us one of the most beautiful places [to work] in the Principality.” 

Truisi has said that Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer and D.ream International, which owns the Amazónico franchise, are still accepting CVs via email:

Once open, Amazónico will offer a Latin American-inspired cuisine with sushi options. The style and décor of the rooftop establishment, which will reportedly be open from 6pm to 5am, will to be decidedly tropical and exotic.
