Wow Alex was amazing. The best culinary night we had in Greece. He prepared the mixed grill for our family and friends over charcoals with perfectly marinated beef, pork, lamb and sausages. Every detail was taken care of. Loved the grilled baby tomatoes... the homemade BBQ sauce and chimmichuri. He accommodated changes we had in our ferry schedule and the kitchen looked like it had never been used afterwards. Was so much fun dining on our veranda under the stars of Mykonos With Alex. Thank You !

I had booked Chef Nick for my friends' hen and he was amazing! His team was in contact with me before during and even after the experience. He came earlier during the day to assess the kitchen in case he needed to bring anything else which was very organised of him! The food was served at the time requested and the portions were very generous that we had enough for breakfast the next day! He was able to accommodate to the varied dietary requirements in the group even being able to cater for gluten free too! Overall I would happily recommend chef Nick to anyone-you would not be disappointed!

Food : the food was really awesome, with a great variety of dishes from different regions of Greece. The chef uses local ingredients from various islands which made all the dishes quite special with their own story which was very nice. Even classic dishes (Tzatziki, octopus) were cooked in a very unique way which made them special and delicious. We enjoyed everything from the start.
Service: Chef Georgios Dimitriadis communicated very well to organize the dinner, came early to prepare the food and was very easy going, smiling and seemed to enjoy doing it, which is much appreciated. He took the time to tell us his own story, the story of his dishes and to serve us in the best way possible. We recommend him 100%. Thank you very much.
