"The chef was brilliant, arrived on time, and settled in well.
Was very easy going, and got on with cooking with ease.
The food was amazing, all 3 courses were served in a timely manner, and the presentation was beautiful. The hot courses were served all piping hot for all of us.
He was very friendly and we enjoyed the whole experience
Would definitely recommend Jan and look forward to doing again sometime.

"The birthday party went well and the food was good. The only point we would make is the lack of communication on the day - a simple text saying what time they should arrive. A few of us were worried that the caterers wouldn't turn up."

"We had chef Martin Davies and his lovely wife Charlotte for our event; a dinner party for 12 at the National Trust property Godolphin House. Absolutely brilliant evening. The food was wonderful. In fact everything from Menu, Food, preparation, clearing up - all was faultless. They made our night! Thank you both!!!"

"The process was really smooth and easy right from the off. The guys at PopTop were exceptionally responsive with follow up emails to make sure everything was running smoothly, and so were the guys at La Belle Assiette. After a couple of emails back and forth I was sent a link to a menu to make my selections from, but I needed a couple of changes and La Belle Assiette were more than happy to accommodate these. The chef herself was fantastic. She texted me to confirm, texted to make sure everything was still ok a few days before the event, so at no point was I left wondering if it was still going to plan. I even had one last minute drop out which was handled quickly and efficiently by PopTop and La Belle Assiette. The food was outstanding and the starter was one of the best I've ever had frankly. When it was all over, the kitchen was cleaner than when it started. Awesome. Would definitely recommend the service and would use these guys again in a heartbeat. And almost definitely will!"

"What can I say? Just wow, wow, wow. The chef was amazing. I didnt have to worry about a thing so could spend time with my guests. The food was out of this world and my guests were so impressed. Would thoroughly recommend"

Our chef Norbert and his colleague arrived and we instantly felt confident and comfortable with them in our accommodation, and sure they would deliver some excellent food. Norbert did not disappoint! He made us some absolutely delicious homemade bread which all 14 of us were very impressed by, followed by three more delicious courses. The food was of a highly professional standard, much as you would expect from a top-class restaurant.
There was lots of food, and Norbert and his colleague were kind enough to wrap up what we weren't able to eat for us to eat the next day, which we absolutely did. Norbert was even thoughtful enough to bring my mother, whose birthday it was, a card and small gift.
We would encourage anyone who is thinking about using this private chef to do so- it is fantastic, professional service at a very reasonable price.
Thanks ever so much again!"

"We were having a school reunion, just one night, 6 of us in an AirBnB so we didn't want to trek out to a restaurant. La Bella Assiette were so easy and helpful in arranging a menu according to our tastes (3 meat eaters and 3 veggies) and finding us a great couple of chefs - Munya and Hendrhina - who were fantastic. The chefs rang me shortly after I had make the booking to introduce themselves and get some more details for the event. They produced and served a gorgeous meal, were friendly but discreet, left the kitchen gleaming and made us a freshly baked loaf of bread for the morning. Would highly recommend."

"Jaques was quite some moly fantastic, he can mminicated well before the day and on the day as traffic delayed his arrival but not our first course. He engaged with all our guests wonderfully and the quality flavour and presentation of his food was faultless, all he had to clear were the gnawed bones from the rack of lamb. Everyone has been in touch to say how great it was particularly one guest who has a range of allergies but was able to eat everything we did bar dessert of which she had her own v impressive show stopper. The kitchen was left clean and tidy and I was able to enjoy the meal as much as all my guests. We will definitely do this again."

"La Belle Assiette were very helpful. We needed a very bespoke menu for our anniversary lunch and they managed to find a chef willing to assist with this. We had a slight hiccup with communications but they sorted it out straight away and resolved the issue. The chef was brilliant and very patient with the continual back and forth with menu changes. Beautifully cooked and presented food. Our party thoroughly enjoyed the very bespoke meal and not having to wash any dishes at the end was a fantastic bonus for us all!! I would certainly recommend them and would use their services again."
