They were respectful and professional at all times throughout the day even though we were continuously in their "work space". They had a great sense of humour and our guests had a wonderful time interacting with them throughout the event. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a caterer for a wedding or otherwise. Exceptional!

    Simon and Adrian where amazing to work with. They put my mind at ease and delivered a fantastic elegant BBQ dinner for my guest. With 4 months out, they assured me that they could deliver a great meal. Which they did! If we could go back in time I would pick them all over again. Absolutely amazing to work with.
