My mom is my idol; I’ve always been in love with her recipes.” At a young age, Royner Abarca, owner of The Private Chef and proud Costa Rican began a passionate relationship with gastronomy. Eight years ago, he perceived the great need in Costa Ballena for catering services for events and all kinds of celebrations, from weddings and birthdays to corporate events.
His first big opportunity to shine with his services was during a Reality Show in 2014. In the same year, he opened SIBU Restaurant in Uvita. After a year of successful management, Royner sold the restaurant to the current owners. Soon, again focused on catering, he received another call to open the Kakü restaurant, also in Uvita.
His growing company The Private Chef has a team of experienced chefs in all gastronomic specialties: chef Juan Pablo Acuña, meat specialist, chef Vera Nidia Abarca, a specialist in local dishes, trained pastry chef Lupe Abarca, bartender Manrique Leiva, professional services by Estiven Arias, most of them bilingual and others, as well as the rental of equipment and utensils, today they cover more than 80 residences, five to ten weddings a year, special events not only in the Costa Ballena area but also nationwide.
