Meet Our Chef

Yelson Hernandez

Chef Yelson Hernandez learned about food and its ability to bring people together from an early age.  His father was a chef and his family opened a restaurant in Tegucigalpa, Honduras some thirty years ago that remains open today.

Chef Hernandez studied hospitality & gastronomy at the National Autonomous University of Honduras (UNAH) before going to work for the Clarion Group. With support from Clarion, Chef Hernandez was given a scholarship to attend a 2-year Chef de Cuisine training program at the Hotel Escuela Madrid España in Madrid, Spain.

Upon his return to Honduras he successfully opened the restaurant at the Quinta Real Hotel in La Ceiba where he worked as Executive Chef for five years. He later became Executive Chef at the Hotel Parthenon Beach La Ceiba  which he also helped to open.

He moved to Roatan to become Executive Chef at Palmetto Bay Roatan in mid-2018.

Chef Hernandez does not favor a specific style of cooking. He prefers to draw his inspiration from the ingredients themselves. His goal is simple - to cook food that his guests will love. “I want my guests to feel at home in my restaurant and to leave happy”, says Chef Hernandez. “Palmetto Bay is a unique place in the Caribbean and it deserves to be enjoyed. I think it has great potential  and my hope is to bring people here through exceptional food and excellent service.”
