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.

Everyone Has A Story – In 2012, one of my yoga students invited me to join her for an upcoming retreat she had planned.

Rafael Steyners was born in the land of the famous “Guajira Guantanamera”, in the picturesque valley of the city of Guantánamo, located in the Province of Guantánamo south of the Caimán Dormido, the beautiful island of Cuba.
