Chef Eleni's reviews

4.9/ 5

Eleni was wonderful. I would very highly recommend her. We were celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary and she made it so special. Before the special night she communicated very well with my husband planning the event and tailoring everything to what we wanted. She made a special dinner for the kids that was delicious, we put them to bed, and she made an amazing dinner for my husband and I. She made sure we didn't feel rushed. She explained the traditional dishes she made for the kids. She even had such little touches that made everything that much better. She had balloons for the kids and decorated our table with basil sprigs and candles. It was really one of my favorite anniversaries. Her cooking skills are outstanding. She perfectly blended traditional dishes with her own creations that were so tasty. Everything was served timely and presented so pretty. She is truly a very talented chef!

We hired chef Eleni for a private dinner party in Crete and it was amazing. The quality of food was fresh and fragrant and she went above and beyond our expectations. I cannot recommend booking chef Eleni enough you will not be disappointed. We had vegetarian and fish dishes, which Eleni made sure to have equal amounts of each. She also made a birthday cake for my mums birthday which was beautiful! Probably the nicest cake any of us have ever had!! 10/10 thankypu!!

Booked Chef Eleni for my husband's 50th bjrthday. Birthday boy is vegetarian. Eleni helpes create a menu that provided fabulous options for both vegetarian and meat eaters. Having been in various parts of Greece for over 2 weeks prior to the meal meant we were familiar with many of the dishes but Eleni's meal surpassed our expectations. People's favourite dish varied but the quality and quantity were exceptional. Thoughtful touches like candles for the dessert were greatly appreciated. The kitchen and bbq were left impeccably clean. This was my first experience with a private chef and I would repeat it without hesitation.
