The people are just as important as the food
Restaurants that invest in their staff — like those committed to employee well-being and personal development — tend to take more care with the food and drink they serve. Everything is connected! Berbena is one such restaurant that looks at the big picture. They don’t neglect the basics and they are clear about their high ambitions for both the food and the people. Carlez Pérez de Rozas has a solid background as a chef; his CV consists of well-known starred restaurants, including Central in Peru, which was recently named the world’s best restaurant. At Berbena, a lot of love and time is devoted to the essentials: the bread, the wines, the cheese, the coffee, and the cold cuts. This is the area where the quality and knowledge shine through.
