Very professional, great food, caring staff
From the start, communication with Cecilia prior to meeting her was great. She responded in a timely manner and answered all questions.
After discussing and selecting menus for our 5 meals we planned, she and her staff came in our home rental and cooked both lovely breakfasts and dinners for us. We have three teenagers and a ten year old and she was accommodating for everyone and set the table up very nicely. She and her staff were attentive and also cleaned the kitchen. I appreciated the quality ingredients that she used and the food never felt too heavy or greasy. There was always an abundance of food and the leftovers were great to have as well when we didn’t feeling like going out or cooking.
There was a day that Cecilia and her staff came and my husband and I had a bout of montezumas revenge. I felt so bad that I couldn’t enjoy the meal as I had anticipated. Once I told Cecilia that I was not feeling well she went out and bought fresh mint to make homemade mint and camomile tea for us. She also got us medicine and made sure we had an easy to digest meal option that evening. As a bonus, she didn’t charge us for the planned margaritas that evening which I fully planned on paying for as she prepared and bought ingredients for them. In addition, she gave guidance on possible culprits for our illness. She never makes you feel rushed to start or finish the meal and she speaks perfect English as well.
It is so worth it to relax and let Cecilia do the cooking! You won’t regret it!

Amazing Food and Service
Cecilia and her crew did a superb job at everything. Very professional, very sweet, accommodating, efficient, and would recommend her to anyone coming to Sayulita for a private dinner. She came to the AirBnB we were renting, cooked for 9 of us, and everything was flawless.

Amazing food and a new friend
We hired Cecelia to cook for our family one night during our stay from a reference. After eating her well thought out and delicious local cuisine we decided to hire her two more times including a birthday party. Cecelia is a class act. She’s kind, interesting and she cooks amazing. We have a very diverse group and she accommodated everyone’s needs. Her flow was seamless and it was so relaxing to enjoy a restaurant style dinner in the comfort of our home. I wish I could write a more eloquent review because she deserves it! We will hiring her again when we return later this year.

Cecilia and her staff were amazing!
She was extremely personal and gracious without being in your space. The timing for serving each meal course was perfect. She met the needs for 2 families ages 12-50 yo including making delicious margaritas.

Fun cooking class with our family!
We had Chef Cecelia come and do a little cooking class / dinner for our family of four. My daughters (almost 5 and almost 8) thought it was super fun too! We made delicious guac, soup, fish tacos and had passionfruit ice cream. Love that she had a long list of menu items to customize it...

Kudos to Cecilia!
Chef Cecilia was such a pleasure to have in our home, was hospitable and gracious and her food...well, we're still talking about it back home. We did two dinners, 1 breakfast and 1 lunch - perfecto for the week! Guacamole and tortilla soup were the best, but her chilaquiles, mahi-mahi with corn and poblano strips and providing margaritas was superb! She's flexible, her pricing is fair for in-home chef service and quality ingredients and clean up. What a treat!

Best Chef in town!
Cecilia and her team were recommended by Villa Amor and they did not disappoint! We requested to have Cecilia come cook us breakfast one morning and from the start, she was always in clear communication with me, answering all of my questions, ensuring that we had the perfect meal lined up.

We decided to go with more of a traditional breakfast, so we had fresh fruit, yogurt, granola and fresh juice to start, and for our mains we had Chilaquiles and French Toast. The sweet and the savory mains were the perfect balance and the entire group loved all of it so much, we decided to ask Cecilia to come back a couple days later to cook for us again. That day, we switched up our mains to Huevos Rancheros and stuck with the French Toast (which is heavenly, by the way).

Cecilia's meals were the best meals we had the entire trip! She exceeded our expectations while accommodating all special food requests along the way. Not only do they cook you an extravagant feast, they will clean up afterwards as if they were never even there :) We had the best experience with Cecilia and would highly recommend her to everyone! They even clean up afterwards, giving you the opportunity to make the most of your vacation to just sit back and relax :) Thank you for creating such a memorable experience, Cecilia!

Private Chef, Casual dining
I highly recommend Chef Cecilia for a private, casual dining experience in your villa or rental. Cecilia and her team provided us top notch dinners and breakfast. She uses the freshest local meats and seafood and farmers market ingredients. The soups were gourmet, the ceviche and guacamole were the best we've ever had. We selected from a large, varied menu, including fabulous margaritas. Cecilia arrives with everything she needs to prep, cook, serve, and clean up. What a wonderful way to enjoy Sayulita even more!

Such an amazing and unforgettable experience!
Thank you for coming to our rental home and cooking an amazing 4 course dinner for my partner and I. The presentation was perfect and food was so delicious. There were multiple menu options to choose from and customizing was available. We opted for fresh shrimp ceviche, tortilla soup, mahi, and coconut ice cream. Cocktails were an option but we already had a bottle of wine at the home. Cecilia and her helper were very sweet. The ceviche and mahi were my favorite! Highly recommend this as a dinner option! It was much more intimate than visiting a restaurant and no driving, pricing was very good. Great value!
