Chef Carlos's reviews
Chef Carlos was communicative and flexible on menu modifications. He showed up at the time promised to our Airbnb. Dinner was even ready ahead of schedule! He took the time to explain each course and made sure everyone had a good time. The food was excellent and full of flavor! Thank you chef Carlos for making the surprise birthday party a hit!
