Absolutely gorgeous birthday meal from Kimberley. Food was delicious and service was really professional. Kimberley is really friendly and we will definitely hire her again.

Paula - Jan 7, 2021

5/ 5

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!

Mrs. Cat Cantrill - Nov 11, 2019

5/ 5

I would highly recommend Paul. His Italian/Japanese fusion menu was perfect for the occasion and also delicious. Paul took the time to answer our questions and was very interesting to chat to. His skill & attitude made for an excellent evening!

Rob was fantastic. The food was exceptional and the presentation was delightful. We can’t wait to have him back again in the future and try another cuisine. We would highly recommend him.

Matt Courtneidge - Jun 10, 2020

5/ 5

I have never previously had a private chef experience but hopefully it won't be the last time. Rob had put in a huge amount of prep. The food was amazing. He also struck the right balance between leaving us to enjoy our dinner party, and being engaging and chatting with us when we wanted to ask him questions (which you will want to do when the food is THIS good).

Adam Hewitt - Oct 7, 2019

Chef Philppe was excellent and the food was amazing Highly recommend him.

Chris Bourne - Aug 3, 2020

5/ 5

From the moment Alex walked into the door the experience begun. A smile on his face ended up with a smile on all our faces with the high quality and attention to detail of all the food through the evening. Every dish had our taste buds going to a place like never before. Alex as a person is friendly and professional and as the night went on we all enjoyed getting to know him more. The cocktails were nicely done and even the one member who does not normally drink them were asking for more. I will certainly be recommending him to friends and family. Its an experience not to be missed. I cannot recommend Alex highly enough.

Dean - Sep 30, 2018

5/ 5

I would highly recommend Keith. He went above and beyond. The quality of the beef he sourced for my dinner was fantastic and he put a lot of effort and thought into the dishes and the presentation. I hardly knew he was there. He explained all of the dishes to my guests which was a nice touch. He left the kitchen in pristine condition and made the night so easy and relaxing for me as hostess.
