Young, ambitious and determined, Oliver Benda is a Hungarian chef currently running his own take-away eatery in the heart of Old Town Limassol whilst consulting for various restaurants.
His talent and dedication defies all barriers of age as he has been working relentlessly in his profession from the very beginning of his culinary journey.
Prior to finishing his studies in Gödöllő, Hungary, he had attained valuable experience working as a trainee chef in a multitude of prestigious hotels and restaurants. This includes a placement year in the exquisite ‘Grand Hotel Budapest’ and the position of ‘à la carte chef’ in a popular Italian restaurant, further broadening his knowledge of the culinary arts and fueling his passion for growth.
After assuming the position of chef and co-opening a restaurant in the affluent Buda side of Budapest, he made the decision to escape his limitations in Hungary and pursue his career in Cyprus.
It was not long after his arrival in Limassol, that he was welcomed into the Columbia Plaza. Throughout the course of three years, he worked as a sous chef in the Columbia Steakhouse and obtained the position of banqueting chef for the company.
With the desire to express his knowledge of French, Hungarian, Italian and Mediterranean cuisine and to further evolve his career, he opened ‘Oliver’s Kitchen’ in the bustling Old Town of Limassol with associate fellow chef and good friend Barnabas Tim. Oliver’s Kitchen acts as a celebration for the new, creative and bold flavours produced by the journeys of these two passionate chefs.
Chef Oliver is a person that is always willing to learn something new and different yet a person that always stays true to the use of home-made and fresh ingredients and his vision of high standards and excellent quality.
