Before coming to Ocean Reef Club, Chef Betania Salles was Chef de Cuisine for
Imlee Indian Bistro in Pinecrest for seven years. Chef Salles received rave reviews
from critics and diners alike during her tenure at Imlee and as Chef de Cuisine at
Fontana Restaurant at the Biltmore Hotel and Resort in Coral Gables.
She now heads the kitchen at our very popular Gianni.

Salles first came to the Club to be Chef de Cuisine at the Islander. Her exhilarating cuisine is
inspired by her international background and finessed with contemporary American touches
and seasonal ingredients. Brazilian-born Salles acquired much of her interest in quality
cooking from her father, a butcher, and her mother who took great pride in cooking with
excellent ingredients. It was natural that Betania would become a chef. This journey led her to
the Middle East, Portugal, Spain, Italy, and home to Brazil where she opened four restaurants in
a ten-year span.
