Adriana & Haissam
The story of Ibéricos begins in 2006, in Mérida, Venezuela. At the time, Haissam had just finished his internship in the kitchen of the Papiros restaurant with Japanese chef Takeshi Nagajama, a graduate of the Hofman Cooking School in Barcelona. Adriana was studying in dentistry at the time and then quickly decided to join the Papiros team. Shortly after, Haissam decided to open his own restaurant in his home town of San Cristobal in Venezuela. Specializing in Mediterranean cuisine, he became Executive Chef of Baleares for a year, while Adriana was finishing her studies in Mérida.

In 2009, they decided to move to San Sebastián in Spain, where they both worked in renowned restaurants such as Akelarre (Pedro Subijana), Kursaal (Martin Berasategui) and Mendizorrotz, a family restaurant. Sometime later, they returned to Venezuela and opened a restaurant called Primos with Haissam’s mother. This gourmet Cafe specializing in Spanish cuisine is still active today. In 2011, Haissam received his residency to come to Quebec and joined the kitchen team of several local restaurants. In 2013, he orchestrated the Tapas 24 menu with Catalan chef Carles Abellan.

After 4 years in the kitchen, Haissam and Adriana decided to start their own project and unite their forces. In 2017, he joined Resto Boutique Ibéricos, a restaurant run by Catalan partners. In 2019, Adriana and Haissam became owners and changed the name for Ibéricos Spanish Tapas Tavern. It is with their experience in the most celebrated cuisines of Spain that they decided to embark on the adventure of Ibéricos. Working with local producers, their goal is to share gastronomic world of Spain. They offer an authentic and traditional experience in Montreal.
