Chef Tomas and his sous chef/friend were incredible. I wrote a review on trustpilot but also wanted to write one here. They had every detail accounted for. Explaining each course before we started, when my father mentioned to me he needed a bottle opener - 10 seconds later they come out with one. The food was incredible, the seabass ceviche, tuna tartar with avocado & mango, the seafood main with rice, the chocolate dessert and the incredible addition they made with a taste of local port. It was a great experience and I would put 100% faith in Tomas & his sous chef, I chose them initially due to the quick response time and ability to amend the menu as I wanted. They delivered so much more. They also left the kitchen far more clean then when they arrived!!! My father is a difficult man to impress and they made our UK father's day exceptional. Thank you so much.

Everything about the meal was incredible. I only have one negative: Chef was 30min. late of the agreed arrival time and he didn't call to let me know. Otherwise it was an absolutely incredible meal!
