Most incredible!
We had the pleasure of having Doris and Jorge prepare 3 dinners and 2 breakfasts for our group. The quality of food was incredible!!! They are the absolute best. After the meals, the kitchen was cleaned and left in a pristine condition. I can’t imagine returning to Sayulita and not using them again. It completely made the trip for us!!! Muchas gracias Doris y Jorge!

Above and Beyond!
I hired Doris to be our personal chef for 3 dinners and 2 breakfasts. Not only was the food delicious, but it was presented beautifully. Doris and Jorge were punctual, professional and made each meal feel very special for our family. Words cannot express how fantastic Doris’ services are. It was so special to have elaborate and delicious family meals prepared to perfection in our private home. Thank you for the meals and memories!

Best decision of our entire trip was hiring Doris!
We hired Doris and her son to cook breakfasts and dinners for us for an entire week. It was the best decision of our vacation! They are splendid cooks!

We're vegetarian, and they had no problem crafting amazing local cuisine without using any meat. The meals were absolutely enormous - we could never manage to eat lunch because of how much food they fed us!

Breakfasts were heuvos rancheros or chilaquiles or mushroom breakfast burritos with platters of fresh fruit, sliced breads or cakes, yogurt and granola, and other delicious sides. Dinners involved appetizers, sopes, mole enchiladas, tacos, taquitos, pepper and elote empanadas, nopales salad, etc. with lots of sides, sauces, and dessert. They even served us cocktails and various non-alcohol drinks for the kids.

Our children loved the food so much that our 11 year old daughter asked why we ever had to go back to eating American food!

I have a super sensitive stomach but they washed everything so well that we never had to worry about anything. They were also so pleasant and kind. In short, we ate like royalty and their service was amazing. The cost was incredibly reasonable given the amount and quality of the food. Will definitely hire again when we return to Sayulita!

Best breakfast in town!
We asked Doris to cook us breakfast at our rental house the day after our wedding - and wow! Best decision ever. Doris and her partner arrived at the house quietly, while we enjoyed our morning of sleeping in. We came downstairs to the outdoor dining table filled with food- table settings set perfectly, and the most magical spread of Chilaquiles, eggs, yogurt, granola, fresh fruits, homemade muffins, coffee, and juices! The food was incredible and the staff made sure you had fresh, hot coffee in your cup at all times. After breakfast, Doris and her partner cleaned the table, did all dishes, put extra food in to-go boxes, and left the kitchen clean as can be. When we come back to Sayulita, we so hope that Doris can cook for us again.

Wonderful experience!
We had the awesome experience of having Doris cook us a homemade Mexican meal of chicken & shrimp enchiladas in red sauce. The whole thing was great from start to finish. Doris & her son (?) arrived on time, whipped up some fresh & delicious pina coladas while we nibbled on guacamole (made with cucumber due to my aversion to onions - a thoughtful and refreshing substitution!) and chips. The value for money was excellent— they prepped, cooked, served and cleaned up right in the comfort of our casa and we had enough leftovers for another meal. Communication was great - both us & Doris used Google translate to overcome any language barriers. We will definitely hire Doris again for a private dinner the next time we’re in Sayulita!

Service, menus and quality far exceeded our expectations!
Our group of 12 adults had the pleasure of Chef Doris and Jorge’s incredible cooking and top notch service while staying in Sayulita. We hired them for both breakfast and dinner 3 of our 5 nights. We communicated via email for several weeks prior to arrival, she was always quick to reply and honored our every request and more.

They always arrived early, were well prepared, friendly, discreet and clean up was meticulous.

Every course offered much variety with an abundance of food and delicious from start to finish. They also did a wonderful job accommodating two members of our group that have gluten and seafood allergies, and for our friend celebrating a birthday she prepared a special birthday cake.

We would highly recommend Chef Doris and Jorge, they make an excellent team!

Fantastic Meal, Delightful Experience
Doris and her team made an *incredible* meal for our first night in Sayulita. The house smelled wonderful as they made so many lovely dishes and sauces. We will be having her back later in the week and can't wait. Get the ceviche! Divine!

Best meals in Sayulita!!!
Doris and son Jorge prepared our favorite meals for us in Sayulita while there for a week. My wife and I traveled there for a week and had them prepare breakfast, lunch, cocktails and dinner for us and our 4 sons and 2 girlfriends. We left a lot of the menus up to her as we are not picky and can assure you that she blew us away. Huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, breakfast tacos, mahi mahi tacos, shrimp ceviche, rice (my fav), beans, huachinango (fried whole snappers), cole slaw (best I’ve ever had), agua frescas, juices, mojitos, margaritas, guacamole and all the different salsas that she makes!!!! Low key heat to super spicy. They set the tables, serve you and clean up afterwards. There is nothing for you to do but enjoy and the kitchen is clean when they leave. We were blown away. Love. Thank you Doris!

The Best food we had during our week in Sayulita!
We asked Doris to cook and create what she likes best! Seriously, we had the best meals of the entire week prepared in our (rental) home by Doris and Jorge. She was lovely to work with, set the tables, left leftovers, and did a beautiful job of cleaning up. Look no further for your private chef!!

Wonderful meal, wonderful people... Extraordinary service
We were very late in planning a birthday meal at our vacation home... Thankfully Sayulita Life had WhatsApp communication with Doris!

They prepared a wonderful traditional Mexican meal, in our home... so fresh, so good (oh and the smells, wow!). Provided us with freshly blended cocktails AND brought cervesa on VERY short notice. What service!

They cleaned EVERYTHING. When they left... The only reason you knew they were there were the great leftovers in the fridge... Which made for great breakfast.

And her pricing was AMAZING. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Doris Rivera lives just outside Sayulita. She grew up in a traditional Mexican home and was exposed from an early age to the flavors of the region. Her "training" occurred when she was a young wife and mom, cooking for her family. Despite looking after four children, she found artistry and perfectionism in the kitchen. Never content, always striving to improve her skill, she bought and borrowed regional cookbooks, and practiced all the recipes, again and again. Eventually, she began to experiment and find her own "voice" as a chef. Later, working as a cleaning woman for a vacation rental in Sayulita, Doris was "discovered" when guests asked her to cook. Person after person commented in amazement that the best meal they had in Sayulita was the one made by the "cleaning woman." In her quiet and simple way, by preparing beautiful meals that speak for themselves, Doris has made a name for herself. The demand for her services grew to the point that it is now a full-time job.
