Phenomenal people and food!!
Chef Gabriel and his sous chef were AMAZING to have! They cooked us a traditional Mexican dinner of tortilla soup (to DIE for!) mixed fajitas, beans, rice, chips, guac & pico and everything was delicious! There was 12 of us at our air b&b and everyone was raving about the food and experience. The cherry on top was a mexican key lime pie that was the best dessert I've had! After dinner the chefs hung out with us in the kitchen/living room and we swapped stories of the world, experiences and laughter. They were a breath of fresh air. Thank you both so much for an amazing, unforgettable experience!

Amazing experience! 10/10
Chef Gabriel and his team catered our 50-person, at-home wedding and did a phenomenal job. From start to finish he was kind, funny, communicative, super flexible, and up for every little change or tweak we requested. His tamales were amazing—we got so many compliments on the food and the kind and helpful service of him and his team. We cannot reccommend him enough.

Best experience in Sayulita
Chef Gabriel prepared dinner for our group of four for two of the nights we stayed at our Air bnb. It was beyond a doubt the best choice we made for creating a relaxing vacation and great memories. The communication was very responsive and easy through WhatsApp. We went a little over the top with our menu selections because it all sounded so good. I’m glad we did because everything was outstanding in every way. Chef Gabriel is top notch in everything he does. On top of that he is completely adorable and entertaining. I highly recommend him and am already looking forward to booking him again the next time we are in Sayulita!

Comida increíble
De verdad la comida está DELICIOSA, perfecto para unas vacaciones de total descanso sin tener que preocuparte por cocinar y arreglar cocina, lo mejor es que tiene un menú muy variado del cual puedes elegir a tu preferencia e incluso puedes agregar unos drinks🍸. Platicando con Gabriel (el chef) nos contó que él y su equipo ha cocinado para bodas pequeñas y que incluso han organizado la decoración de las mismas, vi fotos y todo se veía increíble. El Staff todos muy lindos y atentos y todo muy limpio! Recomiendo totalmente para un viaje a la playa de relajación absoluta 🙌🏽✨🌞

Several delicious dinners at our rental house
We had Gabriel come and cook dinner for our family of 10 at our beach rental. He is very experienced and familiar with the area and had even cooked at our rental before. We all very much enjoyed talking to him and learning about his life, he is very friendly. From the very beginning super responsive via WhatsApp. We were very happy with the meals and asked him to repeat his fried fish and shrimp tacos the last night since we were blown away by them the first time and really enjoyed all the sauces he provides on the side. Highly recommend.

Mahi mahi dinner
Chef Gabriel and his assistant Michelle came to prepare dinner for us at the Painted Ponies Villa and it was a delightful experience. We chose mahi mahi with Caesar salad, fresh vegetables and a light lemon pasta. The flavor was outstanding. They work so well together, a very relaxing and enjoyable evening, very personal. I highly recommend.

Amazing experience!
We hired Chef Gabriel for dinner on one of our final nights in Sayulita and wish we’d met him earlier! The food was amazing, and Gabriel made the entire event fun and festive. It was an evening of exceptional food and priceless memories. An added plus, our family of six enjoyed the leftovers for two days after.
