MEET OUR CHEFS

EXECUTIVE CHEF FROYLAN RAMOS

Froylan has worked in luxury resort culinary operations for over 15 years. His culinary philosophy has been inspired by different cultures, new techniques and flavors that have allowed him to create extraordinary new twists on modern Mexican cuisine.  Diverse assignments throughout Mexico and the Caribbean have contributed to his comprehensive knowledge of international cuisines spanning the globe.

Born in Mexico City, Froylan received his culinary education in his hometown and completed his internships in the prestigious Club de Industriales Mexico & the awarded La Broche Restaurant in Madrid, Spain. In his spare time, Chef Ramos enjoys visiting local markets, paddle boarding on the ocean and training crossfit.

HEAD CHEF BRUNO ALVES

A Brazilian with Italian and Spanish roots, Bruno Alves’s unique background and his family’s love of food inspired and defined his passion for cooking. Bruno developed his culinary point of view in Italy, working for two of the country’s finest restaurants, focusing on the seasonality of products, craft, and quality, which he continues to believe today. Many awards later, including a coveted Bib Gourmand, Michelin’s award for exceptional yet affordable dining, he arrives in Costa Rica to lead our newly renovated OSTRA.

Bruno plans to mingle with locals to familiarize himself with his new home. “To learn about cultures, you must learn about food and music. Both come from the mouth,” he says. What is his perfect idea of happiness? Spearfishing followed by a nice meal and a good glass of wine. And as luck would have it, he finds it all here on Peninsula Papagayo.
