This was the only way to go! Hiring a private chef while four little children were sleeping upstairs. Frank cooked and waited on us and kept us entertained as well. That wasn’t even the best part! The quality, taste and presentation of these delectable dishes made the meal extra special and we felt like we were dining in a 5 star restaurant. We highly recommend Belly FedBetter to put your vacation experience over the top!

I wish I could give 5 Stars for the food and a separate 5 stars for Chef Frank! We had the pleasure of having two meals from Chef Frank while in Tamarindo. Our welcome dinner was beyond amazing and our breakfast had some scraping empty bowls! Chef Frank was prompt, served all of our dishes beautifully, and cleaned up everything in the blink of an eye! He was resourceful, professional, and has the biggest smile ever! He also has some pretty AMAZING stories about all the wonderful food he has prepared and the places he has lived. Book him! You won’t be disappointed!

We recently had the pleasure of having Chef Frank cook for us in Costa Rica. Not only was the food absolutely AMAZING so was the service and his company. He was a big part of our night and we were happy he took the time to sit with us and socialize. We highly recommend Chef Frank for a night of delicious eating and entertaining! Thank you Frank from all of us!

Chef Frank prepared an amazing meal for us on our first night at Casa Islita in Tamarindo. He came highly recommended by the villa concierge and did not disappoint. We arrived hungry and tired after a long day of traveling and Frank was waiting to greet us with home made tortillas, guacamole, fresh salsa and amazing ceviche - which we devoured immediately. For dinner, he prepared the taste of Costa Rica meal for 9 of us. The food was fantastic. Frank took great care of us, serving the meal, cleaning up after and leaving leftovers in the fridge for the next day. Arranging the meal through Tabitha was easy and Frank accommodated our food restrictions and allergies. Not only was the food delicious, but Frank has a great sense of humor and an easy going attitude. It was a perfect way to begin our family vacation. We are still raving about that dinner!
