Daniel is the Best!
Daniel and his team are amazing! We had the most incredible meal and the bartender made us the most delicious cocktails made with local fresh fruit. The whole crew is wonderful and super friendly! Then, after hours of eating and drinking with my loved ones, I walked into my kitchen and everything was clean and put away! It was a truly special experience and I highly recommend it!

BEST meal in Sayulita!!
If you're in Sayulita and you don't arrange to have a meal cooked by Chef Dany and his team you're making a HUGE mistake! Chef Dany cooked our at-home welcome dinner for our 12-person group and it was beyond our expectations. He coordinated to arrive at our AirBnB ahead of us so the dinner was set-up and ready upon our arrival which made the experience a wonderful and seamless end to a long travel day. The authentic Mexican three-course meal was DELICIOUS and by far the best meal we had while on the trip. His team was friendly and professional and even cleaned up and packed the left overs for us (a lovely surprise).

I highly recommend having Chef Dany cook for your group or event!

The Highlight of our Vacation!
10/10 recommend!! Daniel was incredible! We learned so much, not just how to cook authentic food but also the stories behind their names. The entire night was magical! I can’t wait to come back and book them again!

Bad communication
Daniel was initially very communicative and friendly. I was working with a very tight timeline so I did not have much room for delays. While trying to confirm details, I sent several messages that went unresponded over the course of 4 days. When Daniel finally got back to me, he claimed he was having email issues. I can forgive that. However, after he said he could still cater my private dinner (that was being set up as a gift) he once again failed to respond to me with necessary details. In fact, the date came and went without a word from Daniel. Thankfully I was able to find another chef that was able to help me with very short notice. She responded promptly, answered all of my questions in great detail, and was very flexible with her offerings. The dinner was set up quickly and was a success! The guests were unaware of the stress that was caused due to Daniel's lack of professionalism. I am not usually one to leave unfavorable reviews but I felt that the issues I dealt with in trying to set up this dinner from afar (I'm in the US and the dinner was taking place in Sayulita) were worth describing so that others don't run into the same problems I had if time is of the essence.

Had a wonderful dinner with our family!
We loved our evening with Chef In Paradise. Everything was beautifully prepared and presented and absolutely delicious. It was so nice to have a great meal, in our home, and to have all the details managed for us. I would like to add that the tomatillo salsa that was served was the best I have ever had; I'd like to hire the chef just to teach me how to make it!

Daniel is the best chef in Sayulita!
Second time our group has used Daniel and Nelson and cannot say enough about his choice of food and preparation. His friendliness goes over and beyond. Him and Nelson take care of everything including buying groceries and preparation. Highly highly recommend!

Amazing cooking class for a large group!
Daniel and his team taught a cooking class for my team while in Sayulita and they were all-around amazing. Great chefs, great teachers, delicious food and cocktails. Really, we could not have asked for a better experience and really appreciate how kind, accommodating, prompt and friendly they all were. We are only sorry we didn't hire them for more events during our time in Sayulita!

An unforgettable experience in Sayulita!
Daniel blew us away with his knowledge and expertise in traditional Mexican cuisine. He taught us how to make everything on the menu. Our kids (5&9) joined in the fun and were included the whole time. Not only was the food delicious, but meeting Daniel was just as wonderful. What a gift he is to Sayulita! We can’t wait to come back and cook with Daniel again!
