Chef Alexander's reviews
Punctual and personable, Alec was attentive and each dish truly highlighted the flavours of the ingredients. There were 5 different dishes served, including a to-die-for chocolate cake with salted caramel - we couldn't be happier!

Chef Alec was awesome. I booked the evening as a surprise for my wife’s birthday and he helped me create an awesome custom menu and give her a memorable gift she won’t forget. I’d highly recommend him to any friend of mine.
