The Bellevue Manila is pleased to announce the appointment of Chef Xerxes John D. Narciso as its new executive chef. In addition to overseeing daily food and beverage operations of the hotel’s restaurants and banquet, he also brings new ideas to the table.
Narciso holds a hotel and restaurant management degree from De La Salle University – Dasmariñas. In 2001, he earned a culinary arts and technology management diploma from the Center for Culinary Arts Manila, the country’s premier culinary school.
He marked his professional beginnings in the culinary world in the pastry section of the Marco Beach Ocean Resort in Naples, Florida. He then brought his career to the Philippines in 2003 working for a wide range of big-city properties and upscale resorts.

The breadth of his work gives Narciso a unique insight into the culinary field that will further elevate The Bellevue Manila’s food and beverage lineup.
