El Mirador - The French Touch That Makes The Difference

Chef Fabrice Garbero, La Reunión Golf Resort, Antigua GuatemalaOf all the challenges in the world of gastronomy, creating menu is a major one. What the client consults without giving it too much importance before telling the waiter his cravings, is actually the result of a complex process of trials and decisions that are crucial for the success of a restaurant. Especially in establishments of a higher category, the menu is the chef's calling card. Consequently, it's inevitable that when you entrust the kitchen to a new chef he will soon brand it with his own ideas and creations.

That's precisely the transition that restaurant El Mirador of the splendid La Runion Hotel and Golf Resort is going through at the moment. In fact, next week it will launch the new menu of chef Fabrice Garbero, who has been the sovereign responsible of its customers' culinary well being since he took over the stoves last February. Read the following interview to find out what identifies the chef's cuisine and why a visit to his restaurant is an absolute must. Anyone wishing to learn more about Fabrice's career is welcome to read the interview we did with him in May 2014 following this link.
