Francisco Mandiola: a chef trained in the United States in various prestigious restaurants. At 23 years of age, he obtained his first post in the USA, something unheard of in either a foreigner or someone so young. In Chile since 2002, post ´Twin Towers´, he has obtained many distinctions and awards, including ´Best New Chef of the Year´, ´Most Ground-Breaking Menu´, ´Best Chef´, ´Best New Chef´, ´Best New Restaurant´, ´Best Restaurant´ and, currently, ´Best Chef´ in Chile for 2012-2014, both from the Gastronomic Writers in Chile and ´Wikén´ magazine, ´El Mercurio´.
 
Currently Chef-Patron and partner in the ´Europeo´ Restaurant, he is revitalising the most select of Chile´s native products, using innovative techniques in his own style. In addition, through his cooking, he is recreating moments, situations and traditions and other sensations.

Francisco and his team concentrate the essence of each of the chosen products to maximise its potential. Respect towards the seasons, environment, closed-season and, above all, the use of fresh, natural elements are vital to our seasonal offerings.

The values which infuse our work are: honesty, teamwork, sacrifice, humility and respect above all.

Today, our greatest challenge is to make what we have on offer known around the world.
