DISCOVER OUR CULINARY CULTURE
We truly believe that food and drink can forge connections — with each other, within ourselves and across cultural boundaries. That’s why since 2012, we’ve opened our kitchen to Top Chefs from around the world to play with food and flavors at Arenas del Mar. During our Guest Chef events, you’ll love our program of multi-course feasts, cooking demos, tastings and more.

“One evening, I walked into the restaurant to be surprised that an acclaimed chef from Philadelphia was preparing a multi-course culinary feast that went far beyond excellent. Blown away, I came back this year specifically for the chef event week. I ate to oblivion incredible dishes, participated in cooking demonstrations, food and drink tastings and ate desserts that cannot even be described really except to say – incredible!”
