Executive Chef


Celebrated Chef Víctor Caballé Molina was brought up in the hospitality trade, his passion for cooking ignited at a young age while working summers for his family friend’s bakery in the small village of Ulldecona, Spain. From there, he ventured to Barcelona to obtain his Diploma in Culinary Arts, learning classic Catalan and Spanish cuisines while working for esteemed local restaurants.

Chef Víctor then moved to London, UK, where he soon had the opportunity to work for some of the world’s finest restaurants, including Fino and Quo Vadis, under the tutelage of critically acclaimed Chef Jean Phillipe Patruno. After six years Asia then came calling, and off to Singapore Victor went, leading kitchens at a variety or restaurants and hospitality groups throughout Singapore.

During all this time, travel has been a consistent and keen interest, one that has broadened Víctor’s culinary horizons and skill set the further he goes throughout Latin America and Asia.  In addition to his extensive experience in Catalan, Spanish, French, British and Mexican cuisines, Víctor has developed a deep affinity for Japanese cooking and culture, as seen in his collection of handmade Japanese knives.

Chef Víctor’s cuisine offers modern twists on old classics and showcases globally minded Spanish cooking at its finest. He now joins the Pirata Group team as the Executive Chef for The Optimist and Calle Ocho, restaurants that showcase his Spanish cuisine.
