Chef Joao's reviews
Joao's communication before the event was fantastic. We agreed on everything via WhatsApp including the final menu, some last minute changes and timings. His team were fantastic, very professional and the clean up was amazing!
All the dishes were explained, even the provinence of the food which was fantastic and of course the story behind them. The meal was for my fathers 70th birthday and he was very happy with the surprise meal. Portion sizes were great and we were all very full at the end. I would highly recommend Joao and his team. Thank you Joao and team, we hope to see you again soon.
