Lisa Astorga-Watel, Owner and General Manager

Chef Lisa Astorga-Watel grew up in Santiago, Chile before moving to Houston, Texas, where she attended The Art Institute of Houston. She went on to have a successful career as a private chef for celebrities, such as Tommy Lee Jones, whom she cooked for for more than eight years. Lisa is married to Damien Watel, who also is a chef in town. The two quickly became a food power couple as Damien also owns and operates another well-known San Antonio favorite, Chez Vatel Bistro. The couple has one son named Enzo. 

Bite’s eclectic '70's modern twist' on its dishes is directly influenced by chef Astorga-Watel's travels around the globe. When she isn’t behind the kitchen door, she loves to travel the world to gain more culinary influence, partake in fitness activities and get her groove on to Latin music and maybe even some Bruno Mars.



A small nine table restaurant known for its fun food, funky cocktails, eclectic wines, and great service. Bite’s chef, Lisa Astorga-Watel, is breaking boundaries with dishes like lamb cigars and mimosa cotton candy skewers. As the perfect addition to Southtown’s artsy vibes, Bite is delivering culinary masterpieces that will have you smiling and snapping photos of your dinner. Bite is continuing to grow its presence in San Antonio’s favorite spot for something a little bit on the funky side.
