Cheers to good times and even better eats!
Oh, let me spill the tea on the catering magic that went down in Punta de Mita for our bachelorette bash! So, there we were, a squad of 15 with more dietary restrictions than a high-maintenance celeb, and this catering crew? Absolute legends. They juggled gluten-free, vegan, and whatnot like it was a walk in the beach. The food was a fiesta for the taste buds, and don't even get me started on the drinks - Paco, the barman, was the maestro of mixology. Charming as ever, he whipped up concoctions that had us feeling like we were in a tropical paradise. Honestly, 10 out of 10 for these team. They made our bachelorette unforgettable, and I'd totally hire them again if I could

Best kid friendly experience!
I have had the pleasure of inviting Chef Cecilia into my home on three separate occasions since 2020, and each experience has been nothing short of extraordinary. What sets Chef Cecilia apart is not just her culinary skills but also her genuine love for her craft and the people she serves. My two young children, aged 3 and 5, have taken a particular liking to her. It's heartwarming to see the connection she has formed with them, not only through her delicious meals but also through her warm and friendly demeanor.

Chef Cecilia goes above and beyond to cater to the preferences of my kids, creating dishes that not only appeal to their taste buds but also introduce them to new and exciting flavors. Her ability to engage with children is truly commendable, making every mealtime a joyous occasion for the whole family.

POOR VALUE FOR MONEY
Pretty shocked with these reviews. Maybe she had an off day with us? I’ll list the cons and pros. Hired for dinner at a rented house for 8 people and were disappointed

CONS
-showed up with her 7 year old son and didn’t tell us. He ran around a lot while babies were trying to sleep and took our pictures without asking on his phone.
-were promised 8 dishes, but 2 were missing. We had to inquire about them and she just said she couldn’t find ingredients
-500 pesos per person (4000) plus ~1400 pesos for cost of food even though we supplied all the meat. Very $$$ compared to nice restaurants
-papaya salad just papaya and lettuce- no dressing
-fish was over cooked
- cake was store bought (although it was good)
- receipts for food just said “various” with no details
- didn’t explain any of the dishes
- overall food was about a 4/10
- we asked her to take a family picture which she did then took one on her son’s phone without asking us which was just a bit weird.


PROS
-was nice and polite
- coconut shrimp was decent
- store bought chocolate cake and ice cream we’re good!
-cleaned all dishes nicely

PERFECT! Wedding Catering and Bar Service
Chef Ana was the best possible chef we could have hoped for to cater our wedding in Puerto Vallarta. From the start she was very responsive. She put together a menu that fit our tastes exactly and all the food was fantastic! Many of the guests said the pastor tacos were the best they've had. We would definitely recommend her to anyone hosting a dinner or large event in the area.

Delicious food and great service
We hired Cecilia to cook dinner for us a few nights when we had guests visiting and she was amazing. Everything she made was as fresh, flavorful and we even had leftovers. Cecilia can prepare pretty much anything you and your group need - such a fun treat when you want to stay home and enjoy an intimate night with family or friends!

Excellent Private Chef Dinner at Home
Ana Cecilia was an absolute gem. Our meal was wonderful - we requested "traditional Mexican with some flair" and she delivered! The food was fresh and delicious and we had plenty of leftovers. The flan was amazing (says someone who doesn't usually prefer flan). She also brought along a bartender who made delightful drinks. All we had to do was relax. My friends and I played cards and Ana Cecilia and her team took care of everything else (including leaving the kitchen cleaner than when they found it). Highly recommend!

Five stars hardly do justice to the exceptional service and cuisine you provided. Highly recommended!
I had the immense pleasure of working with "A Chef in Sayulita" for a wedding celebration that included not only the big day but also the rehearsal dinner and a farewell brunch. The entire experience was nothing short of extraordinary, and I can't express my gratitude and satisfaction enough.

To begin with, Chef Cecilia truly deserves accolades for her remarkable talent and dedication. With a guest list of 50 people, a significant portion of whom had dietary restrictions due to celiac disease, we needed a catering service that not only understood our needs but also exceeded our expectations. Chef Cecilia did just that and more.

What stood out most about Chef Cecilia was her exceptional ability to not only meet but also anticipate our requests. She crafted a special menu that not only accommodated our gluten-free requirements but also delighted our taste buds with an array of flavors and textures. Her intuitive approach to designing dishes that captured the essence of our celebration was truly remarkable.

The food itself was a work of art. From the rehearsal dinner's intimate and flavorful dishes to the wedding reception's show-stopping spread and the farewell brunch's delightful morning fare, every bite was a testament to Chef Cecilia's culinary expertise. Each plate was not only exquisitely presented but also bursting with fresh, locally sourced ingredients that showcased the vibrant flavors of Sayulita.

Managing the logistics of catering for three distinct events can be challenging, but Chef Cecilia and her team executed flawlessly. The punctuality, professionalism, and attention to detail demonstrated throughout the celebration ensured that our guests were not only well-fed but also left with unforgettable memories.

In conclusion, "A Chef in Sayulita," with Chef Cecilia at the helm, is a catering company that goes above and beyond to deliver a remarkable culinary experience. From accommodating dietary restrictions to crafting menus that tell a story, they truly understand the art of catering. If you're looking for a catering service that combines creativity, flavor, and professionalism, look no further.

Thank you, Chef Cecilia and the entire team at "A Chef in Sayulita," for making our wedding celebration an absolute dream come true. Your dedication, passion, and culinary prowess left a lasting impression on all of us. We couldn't have asked for anything more.

In summary, "A Chef in Sayulita," and particularly Chef Ana Ceci, not only met but exceeded our catering needs for our one-week retreat. Their commitment to creating a memorable dining experience, combined with Ana Ceci's exceptional culinary talents and intuitive menu design, left us all utterly satisfied and eager to work with them again in the future.
