Mariana and her assistant were great! Every dish had its own sophisticated elements to it that made them delicious. Service was very professional and prompt. They also left our kitchen spotless when done. I’d happily use them again.

Darren Jordan - Jan 25 2021

5/ 5

By far the best private chef I have ever used. Chef Gabe was very attentive and excited to carry out this meal. He communicated very effectively and was extremely flexible to the menu ideas and presented an excellent menu. The presentation was more than expected and the food quality was out of this world. I would definitely use him again and highly recommend him to other people, but only if you want to be impressed!

The main difference between a restaurant and a private chef is in the personalized treatment of each diner.

Therefore, the freshness of the ingredients is one of the key elements of a Private Chef service.

Are drinks included in a Private Chef service?

Drinks are not included by default. However, you can reach an agreement with the chef in order to add drinks as an "extra" to the menu proposal.
