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 is a gem!
Doris created the most amazing dining experience for our family last night. We worked together on a menu, but I asked her to finalize the details so that the dishes could reflect the local cuisine. She exceeded our expectations! I strongly advise adding a first course of ceviche and margaritas - wow...nothing in the states tastes as good! The grilled mahi-mahi was beyond delicious and the portions are very generous - lots of leftovers for lunch today! When they left, the kitchen was spotless. She and her son Jorge are delightful and talented chefs and hosts and next time we visit Sayulita, we will be calling them for sure.

The BEST private chef experience!!
Amazing food and amazing service! Doris created an incredible dining experience for us multiple times and never disappointed. I would hire Doris for all of my meals if I could. I plan to use her catering service in the future and would highly recommend her to any of my family and friends.

Spectacular meals!
I’m lucky enough to have Doris cook at the house for my Guests & I 3/6 times a week. I’ve received so many compliments and her meals are spectacular. She caters to different diets and restrictions as well as knows all my home town classics. Thank you so much for all you do!!

The best meals
We had a great experience having Doris provide us with some of the best meals during our stay in Mexico. They were some of the best meals we had and were even better than all the local restaurants. Muchas Gracias!

Beautifully presented & incredible dishes
My husband and I, and our three kids, have been living in Sayulita for 3.5 months now. We are originally from San Francisco, California, where we love to frequently eat out, and have pretty high standards. Because of the pandemic, we have tried to avoid going out and eating out. Our property manager recommended Doris Rivera as a personal chef who can provide meals in our home.

Doris and her staff (including her adult son / burgeoning chef Jorge Rivera) are incredible! We have enjoyed incredible pozole, tacos dorados, enchiladas, mole, fish, shrimp, sopes. Literally every single dish has been TO DIE FOR. Doris is also very conscientious about safety, which has helped make this a sustainable way to take a break from cooking some nights. I very highly recommend ordering in-home meals with Doris. The food is suited for a special occasion, but you don't need a special occasion to enjoy delicious food at her prices. It's also been a pleasure for us helping pump a little money into the local economy, while at the same time being spoiled with beautifully presented comfort food!

A must in Sayulita!
Doris has been cooking meals for us a few times per week for the last couple of months. Her food is hands down better than anything I have had at restaurants in town. Plus, we have three little kids and having a meal cooked for us at home is much easier than wrangling them in a restaurant. If you are visiting Sayulita, having Doris cook for you is a must!

Delicious & beautifully presented
Everything Doris served was delicious and beautifully presented. Doris and her son Jorge and daughter served us as though we were royalty. It was so relaxing to eat in the comfort of our home and at the same time to have them fix and serve everything and then clean it all up. I added a special complication, requesting low-carb meals, no tortillas or rice with Mexican food, but Doris made a perfect, mouth-watering, lovely plate for me at every meal!

Abundance of delicious food and drinks
I was lucky enough to have Doris cook at the house we were staying at several times. Each time she surprised us with an abundance of delicious food and drinks. My personal favorite was the guacamole. What was even better than the food was Doris and her family's lovely presence in the house. They are a joy to be with.

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.
