About Us


Bernardo Arduca was born to an Italian family in Manosque Provence, south of France.

At 21, three years after working in a bank as a clerk, he threw in the towel to go hitchhiking to the Canary Islands where he found work in restaurants as a dishwasher to begin with, quickly moving up to second chef in the kitchen.

He stayed on for 3 years, during which he had his first taste of his future vocation.

He then moved to Norderny in northern Germany to work in an Italian restaurant, still as second chef for  two years, before spending another year in Brussels as a waiter on the main plaza, and so on back to Menton before going to Reunion Island and finally on to Madagascar, where he set up his first restaurant, "La Boussole".

 

 

 This is where he found the opportunity to develop his je ne sais quoi flair for that damn French cuisine.


 

 

 

In 2001 after being la crème de la crème of the restaurants on the island, he decided to move again looking for new challenges under different skies, Bolivia then Ibiza and finally back to La Paz in Bolivia where in 2003 he created his restaurant "La Comédie" and "La Loge de La Comédie Apart-Hotel", which has never stopped being just a bit more "unboliviable"  year after year.
