"I booked Chef Michael for a family lunch in the comfort of our own home. Chef was very organised. We spoke beforehand about special diets and the set up, and he arrived promptly on the day well prepared.

The meal was delicious with everybody going home full and talking about the tasty chicken sauce and light berry mousses. I opted for a server, Michael, who was a delight and added wonderfully to the whole experience.

Chef Michael offered a great experience and even provided child friendly versions of some dishes so the babies could join in (thank you).

Highly recommend."

"Amazing 6 course taster meal
We received excellent service from start to finish from Micheal and also his head waiter. They arrived on time and with little fuss produced an outstanding 6 course taster meal for 10 of our family.
The head waiter was amazing, making sure our table was laid perfectly and filling our glasses up all evening. Everything was washed and cleaned up at the end of the meal leaving us to relax and enjoy the evening. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company. Absoloutely amazing. Deserves 5 stars !!"
