Highly recommend
Chef Cecilia and her team are top notch. Cecilia was very responsive via email. She sent us some pre-set meals and we mixed and matched from all of them. Make sure to include sides of you want them and tortillas. The food was amazing and super fresh. We were a group of over 13 and it was nice for all of us to be able to get out of the craziness of Sayulita restaurants and eat together as a group in our villa. She even provided us with a bartender!

Excellent food and service
We had a group of ten dudes so it was tough for us to all get a chance to sit down and eat together. Thankfully Cecilia and her team were able to cook for us after a long day on the water. Their food was fresh and delicious and the service was second to none. If I'm lucky enough to get back to Sayulita in the future, I'll be sure to reach back out to Cecilia.

Beautiful food, better company
Our family of 20+ used Cecilia twice during our recent stay in Sayulita for our wedding. All of her food was incredible, everything was on time, she was accommodating to schedule, guest and menu changes, and is just a genuinely great human being. Very wonderful with our kids also - would highly recommend.

Best meal during our stay in Sayulita!
Cecilia was super responsive, easy to communicate with, accommodating and then - wow! - what a great dinner! We were celebrating 50th and 60th birthdays with family and friends - dinner party for 10 adults. We had Cecelia bring dinner and a bar and she brought it all! Great Mahi Mahi dinner, ceviche, amazing soup, side dish and piñatas (one for each birthday boy). Unexpected and delightful. Her assistants were great and joined in the fun. Thank you Chef Cecelia for a memorable night!

Phenomenal Dinner
We happened to be in town on my wife's birthday, and so I coordinated a private dinner for 4 with Chef Cecilia at our villa. She was extremely responsive and helpful, and allowed us to make our own menu (of course we picked from a list of her recommendations). It was a 4 course meal with margaritas. Everything she made was phenomenal, and her and her staff were so fun and accommodating, but it was our situation that really sent Cecilia above and beyond. I was feeling a bit sick and couldn't stomach much of any food. "The mother" in Cecilia took over and she made me my own little dinner of some shredded chicken, broth and rice. Bummed me out while the rest of the family raved about every bite. I went to bed before they left, and apparently her and her staff did a top-down clean of the kitchen, leaving it cleaner than it was before they came. I don't want to reveal what we paid, as I'm sure everyone is different. But considering the level of food we got, drinks, and certainly the ease of being at home, it was right in line with any high end restaurant. Extremely reasonable, in my opinion. My only regret was that I was not feeling my best and our group was not as lively as it could have been for her and her staff. I woke up feeling refreshed and dove into Cecilia's leftovers. Everything was every bit as delicious as my family said it was. If you are traveling to Sayulita and are considering a private meal(s), you cannot go wrong with Chef Cecilia. PS -- Do NOT skip the margaritas. Her bartender was fabulous.

THE BEST CHEF IN SAYULITA!
Chef Cecilia was the best! My husband and I hired her for two nights while we were in Sayulita. She was personable and so friendly. She really cared to get to know us. And the food was to die for!! You can tell that she puts her heart and soul into her cooking. We would highly recommend Cecilia to anyone and we'll definitely be contacting her again when we're back in Sayulita for a delicious home-cooked meal.

Amazing meals!
We visited Sayulita recently and booked chef Cecilia for 3 nights to cook for my wife, me and our 5 kids ages 9, 11, 12, 15 and 16. Cecelia was great to work with on the menu, and scheduling. Her English is excellent. And the food was amazing. We had amazing ceviche the first night. And my wife, who is very picky about fish and it’s freshness, wanted it again. That was following by grilled mahi-mahi that was a big hit with the kids. We had tortilla soup followed by Chile Rellanos the nice night. It was a first for the kids and they lived it. At that point we were sold and were lucky enough to book Cecelia a fourth night. For the next two nights we had fish tacos, maybe the best I’ve ever had, and the grilled mahi-mahi again, all the meals came with fresh vegetables and a yummy desert (homemade ice cream, flan). Her staff was very friendly too, we always had leftovers and enjoyed them with tortillas in the morning…and we are eaters. It was a wonderful Mexican food experience.

Chef Cecilia knocks it out of the park
This is the chef you want to hire to cook for you if you're in town.

I just got back from Sayulita and am still dreaming of the food Chef Cecilia cooked for me and my friends. I know when I come back, Chef Cecilia will be first on my list to call.

We got two breakfasts and a dinner and everyone was raving about the food the whole time. It was fresh, everything was homemade, and the service was impeccable.

Chef Cecilia is AMAZING
We had a magical stay at a private beach Palapa outside of Sayulita, so we hired Cecilia took cook for us for the week. BEST DECISION EVER! She is an incredible chef, extremely kind, and every meal was above and beyond expectations. We already miss her and her incredible cooking:)
