Cecelia is a goddess
Cecelia absolutely made our vacation with her delicious food and great company.
She’s is talented, thoughtful, funny and creative. She makes delicious food and even noticed my son was teething and made him special treats to eat when he was otherwise refusing. She is a gift and we will hire her again and again without hesitation.

Great experience from start to finish!
I was working with a very tight timeline to set up a private dinner as a gift for some guests visiting Sayulita. I was planning while in the US so that created slightly more stress. I had experienced very poor service and communication from another chef that I had reached out to initially so I was in a tough spot. Ana Cecilia was AMAZING! She was kind and understanding, responded promptly and created a wonderful experience for everyone! I would highly suggest A Chef in Sayulita and would be so happy to be able to experience her talents firsthand if I am ever lucky enough visit the area.

Wonderful dinner experience!
Thank you for preparing and serving a wonderful meal for us last night. The food was delicious, loved it all! Several dishes stand out as excellent: Watermelon with cheese, array of cheeses, fish ceviche, all the different sauces and of course the BEST keylime pie ever! Cocktails were absolutely amazing.

The best!
I can't say better things about Cecilia! Not only was she a wonderful chef, she cooked amazing cuisine, but she also catered our meals for both kids and adults! She was also incredibly kind in helping us navigate the area and bringing any extra items we wanted for our villa (wine, kids snacks, coke, diet coke, eggs, milk, etc.).

Her meals from her were very thoughtful and DELICIOUS! Our favorite of hers was her pork with red chili and chilequiles! So much so that we changed her menu so we could eat both a second time! She also made several sauces from scratch that were to die for (with varying levels of heat)! Cecilia quickly became friends with her and we can't wait to be back in the area and have her cooking for our family!

In addition to being a great cook, I admired her punctuality in responding (she was incredibly fast). She was also very helpful and patient in providing her information to our hotel to allow her to enter the property (which is quite a complicated process), but she didn't seem to care at all. Not to mention our family was able to eat together in our villa and didn't have to drag our kids to restaurants which was AMAZING! We also asked him to bring a bartender (Francisco) who did an amazing job and had tasty drinks! We learned the real way to drink rum and coke. And...my aunt's 60th birthday celebration, she went above and beyond to make sure everything (Mariachi and all) was executed perfectly. She also fed the whole mariachi!!!!!!!!

CECELIA IS THE BEST!

Absolutely amazing!!
We visited Sayulita on our group trip. We were recommended Cecila as a Personal Chef. I was completely blown away and amazed by the service, the communication was excellent and so fast, and we were able to choose amazing menus each day that continued to blow us away. Her dishes are so fresh and taste so good. I 100 percent recommend her to anyone in search of a private chef. She made our trip unforgettable.

A Wonderful Experience
My family was lucky to have Cecilia during our trip to Sayulita this July. More than just an outstanding chef she was very professional and her staff was excellent as well. It was wonderful for my family to have such delicious food in the comfort of our vacation rental. It made our rental the best restaurant in town. Highly recommended.

Amazing -Cecilia is an artist with her food
We recently did Cecilia's Heirloom dinner. It was one of the best dinners we have ever had. From the Avocado Margarita (I don't like margaritas and it was amazing) to all the courses it was so delicious. The presentation, flavors and pace of the dinner was perfect.
We also had Cecilia come and cook fresh fish from a fishing trip. She made ceviche and red snapper that was perfect. Also, the homemade churros were the best I have ever had.
I would highly recommend you have Cecilia come when you are in Sayulita. It's reasonable but most importantly it is an experience to have.

So Good!
We hired Cecilia for our wedding and day after brunch. She is a lovely person and so easy to work with. Communicating with her from out of the country was never a problem and she made sure that every detail was taken care of. The food was fantastic and the brunch spread was beautiful. We feel so fortunate to have had her as our caterer. She truly cared about us and our special day. If you are looking for someone to take good care of you, she is the one!

Lovely meals with Cecilia!
We were a group of 4 friends renting a house and wanted an dinner for our arrival day and a brunch later in the week. They were the best meals we had while in Sayulita! In the end, we wished we had booked more dinners.
