Katerina, assisted by Jurie, made my mum’s 60th birthday the most special of days. From the start Katerina was a pleasure to deal with. She created the most fantastic menu, catering to many different tastes as well as ensuring there were delicious vegetarian and coeliac-friendly options included. In the run up to our party, she answered any questions incredibly quickly and kept in touch regularly. On the day itself, Katerina and Jurie arrived on time and were both so friendly and personable. They found their way around our kitchen easily and prepared an incredible meal in no time at all. Each course was fantastic and not a single plate had food left on it. When they were finished they left the kitchen spotless. I couldn’t recommend Katerina more and we will definitely book again.

El menú lo recibí por la página web y comenté en el chat de takeachef los cambios que quería. no tengo ninguna queja
Al contrario, me ha encantado la experiencia, y cuando tenga una ocasión propicia, lo más seguro es que repita. Al resto de invitados también les encantó.
Una idea estupenda, y Jesús un gran profesional. La persona que le ayudó también impecable.
Muchísimas gracias por una gran noche.

Keith was outstanding! Not only is he an excellent chef and explained to us the dishes he prepared, but being in Ireland the first time ourselves, he was more than happy answering our questions about the country. Food was delicious and was an amazing experience. I would recommend Keith to anyone!
