It is all part of the private chef difference you will experience using a small, artisan-style company like Let me Cook for You!  Our cuisine goes from Local to International, but always Fresh, Organic and Seasonal.

Hello, my name is Chef Estafania!.

I’m a professional chef from Argentina trained at Buenos Aires’s CIA. My wife and I started this company 5 years ago and we’ve served over 500 dinners already.

Ninety percent of Costa Rican restaurants have menus that are very similar.  That is why I have decided to offer an option for the people who visit our beautiful country that is a  combination of International Food and local Costa Rican cuisine.  No one who’s ever visits Costa Rica is likely to forget Gallo Pinto, and those who haven’t visited couldn’t possibly understand how people can be so enamored with rice and beans.  Gallo Pinto, pronounced “guy-yoh pin-to” is a wonderfully fresh and hearty combination of rice, veggies and beans.

Signature Plates:

  • Huevos Rancheros with sautteé potatoes
  • Gallo Pinto with sour cream and sweet plantain
  • Tuna Poki
  • Mahi Mahi House Special
  • SURF & TURF

Prices: $-$$

Better Fed Bellies!

Hello, my name is Chef Frank.

I am classically trained in French and Lebanese cuisine and had the opportunity to hone my craft as an Executive Chef in Los Angeles and Costa Rica for more than a decade.  As an admitted food glutton that has traveled to over thirty countries, I bring a different perspective on how ingredients are used together to create truly unique dishes.  Each ingredient is as important as the finished plate, so I have established relationships with local farms and fish mongers, allowing me to hand select the highest quality ingredients available.
