He inherited the profession from his father, a cook emigrated to Switzerland, and the good work from his mother, owners of Hotel Mar Atlantico, at O Grove. During the four months the hotel was closed, Javi made stages in kitchens here and there. He was at Casa Solla, at Toñi Vincente, with Arola at La Broche (Madrid), with Martin Berasategui at Bica do Sapato (Lisbon), Balzac (Madrid), Zallo Barri (Gernika), and he finished his stages in the world of Seiji Yamamoto (Tokyo).

"Nominated as restaurant revelation - Madrid Fusión 2010 Culler de Pau is one of the biggest surprises of the gastronomic season in Galicia. Javier Olleros has started a new and elegant adventure. You must pay close attention to this restaurant. Ten tables at an avant-garde and minimalist building. The restaurant its painted in bright white combined with wood and crystal. It has enormous windows that face the entrance of the Ria of Arousa, with views of the islets of Noro and Vionta and the original perspective of the mountain range of Barbanza. They serve a contemporary menu, simple. Timing, temperature and service are perfectly synchonized. Something unusual. The result is a cuisine with Galician roots, but with influences of all the kitchens he's been on stage. The best way to meet his cuisine is trying the degustation menu. Pay close attention to Culler de Pau. They'll set people talking. They won me over as client."
