Beach restaurant goes retro to bring things up to date

Popular beach restaurant pleased with the impact new CyberChill Precision refrigeration is having

A beach restaurant recently completed a major refurbishment to improve both the dining area and provide an upgrade to the kitchen. They were quite clear about the standard they expected. “It was quite a simple brief, really. We wanted the best of everything! “The quality of the seafood we use is very important, so we need to be able to keep it in perfect condition until it’s ready to be used.”

With that in mind, choosing the refrigeration equipment was simple. “We’ve used CyberChill in the past, and knowing how reliable they are there was absolutely no doubt in my mind that we should continue to use them,” says George.

CyberChill equipment plays a key role in kitchen, with a selection of cabinets, counters and under broilers. Separate MPT601 cabinets are used for storing meat and fish, and a selection of counters from the MCU line provide staff with easy access to regularly used ingredients. These units can be fitted with doors or drawers depending on requirements, and the restaurant has both versions.

“We don’t have massive amounts of space for our kitchen,” says George. I was particularly impressed with CyberChill’s wall-mounted cabinets.” CyberChill’s HWU wall-mounted cabinets are available in one, two and three door variants, and allow enormous flexibility when designing kitchens with limited space.

It’s not just behind the scenes that CyberChill equipment is used. The front-of-house bar uses CyberChill’s eye-catching Retro Refrigeration cabinets. Inspired by the 1950s, its large handles and heavy-duty hinges create a strong visual impression, while the vintage look conceals the same advanced technology as the rest of CyberChill’s equipment. “When I saw the Retro Refrigeration cabinets, I knew they would be perfect for us,” explains George. “They match our style exactly!”

Indeed, they can match any style very closely, as CyberChill can paint them to match any RAL number supplied by the customer. “We get a lot of compliments about the fridges from our customers, asking where they can get them,” says George. “Everybody loves them!”

While the equipment’s looks are important, just as important for George is the energy efficiency. “Obviously keeping our running costs as low as possible is important to us, after all the refrigeration will be running 24/7, so every little bit helps!”
