  • "Our guest are still talking about the food"
    Tilly on 11 July 2018

    WOW. Is all I can say about the service and food. From the start of enquiring all the way to the day of our wedding Andy, Debbie and team were there every step of the way. Nothing was too much for them and our guests are still saying how amazing the food was. We researched a lot into catering especially as we knew that Paella and tapas was the one thing we desperately wanted and so glad we booked the BEST in the business. Thank you so much Andy, Debbie and team you made our day perfect.

  • "Christine & Dan – 5th November 2016"
    This testimonial was entered by Buen Apetito on 26 September 2017

    110 GUESTS @ BRISTOL We had Buen Apetito for our wedding a few weeks ago. From start to finish they were just incredible! Nothing was too much trouble, they travelled to our home so that we could sample some lovely desserts and go through everything before the big day. They arrived early on the morning of the wedding, set out all the tables with beautiful dishes to eat three different types of paella from. They also catered for the fussy children at our wedding who wanted burgers instead. The food was amazing!! Chicken and chorizo, seafood and vegetarian paellas, all which were gluten free too.. 2 cheesecakes and a double chocolate cake for dessert which were also gluten free and SO delicious! We then had burgers in the evening, which received so many compliments from our guests. The day ran so smoothly! The staff were so professional and friendly.. the lady who runs the venue was so impressed that she has put them on her recommendation list! Great job guys! Thank you so much! Christine & Dan

Frequently Asked Questions

QUOTING

You complete our online CATERING ENQUIRY FORM (much better for us because it allows us to collate much more information) or you can drop us an email of course! We send you a full quotation with ALL prices clearly shown! We will be delighted to cater for just 2, 3 or 4 courses OR for every course including the evening buffet, the choice is yours! However, when your wedding is a fair distance from us and in order that our catering is financially viable, we may insist that a minimum number of courses are provided. We will let you know when we provide a quote. Our quotation is our only contract, we will NEVER add any further terms or change prices!

BOOKING US

When you decide to book us, we only commit to one booking each day (we could easily do two/three a day, but made a decision at the very start to put all of our effort into only one at a time!) so that we fully dedicate our time, effort and commitment to you alone! We ask for a £200 deposit to secure your date, with nothing more to pay until two weeks before your day! You can of course, pay us monthly by standing order/DDM leading up to the day or clear the balance at any time you like up to two weeks before we are due to cater, but this is up to you. We won't otherwise ask you for the balance until two weeks before your day! The deposit enables us to know that you are serious about booking! We work differently to some caterers in that we will only offer a tasting when a deposit is paid (but please read TASTING (Weddings) below). Once we receive your deposit we will amend our online calendar and show that we are fully booked for that date!

TASTING

We will only provide a tasting once a deposit is paid, however, if for any reason you decide after the tasting that our cuisine is perhaps not in keeping with what you would like on the day, then we will happily then refund your deposit with no questions asked! It is not our aim to be unfair in asking for a deposit, it is merely to differentiate between serious couples looking to book a caterer and those that may try and get a years worth of home chefs! Where we are travelling more than 70 miles from our base to you for a tasting then we will retain 50% of the deposit should you change your mind (but this only applies if we have already told you this in our written quotation at the start!) For your piece of mind, we have NEVER had to return a deposit in the last six years of catering for weddings and parties, so this gives you some idea that over 100 clients have been very happy!

CHOOSING FROM OUR MENU

Everything that we prepare for your day are created at your venue, barn, village hall, field, cliff, beach or wherever you are having your celebration. We also take delivery of nearly all of the ingredients that we will be using just the day before and some more perishable goods very early on the same day! With this in mind, we are happy to receive your final decision on menu choices any time up to a week before your special day! Now we also know that many like to let guests know the choices for the day, which is fine too. So you are free to decide on your choices and let us know whenever you like up until a week prior to the day! If you decide much early on which choices you have made, you are free to change your choices as many times as you like until a week before, we are flexible and know what it is like to have a sudden rethink!

LEADING UP TO THE DAY

If we haven't already visited the venue that we are catering at, then we always like to do a recce and see where we are going to be on the day. If you are a longer distance from us then the chances are we have already covered this at the tasting, but for others then we are happy to come and take a look at the setup and see what is expected of us. I will communicate with you if we feel it is necessary to see your nearby venue. If we haven't already established this beforehand, I will be asking the following a few months before your day: We will establish if it is possible to set up a day before, we always like to do this especially on long distance weddings, rather than leave everything to chance on the day! We will provide cutlery, plates and serviettes, so arriving the day before is also handy should you wish to start preparing the tables the day before too! We will then be asking you the following two weeks before your special day: Any increase/decrease in guest numbers (we would refund or charge the per guest rate accordingly) so that we can prepare your final invoice and amend the price accordingly!

ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

We will arrive nice and early to prepare for the day ahead. Usually this is at least 6 hours before start of service and enables us to get everything ready. If we have setup the day before then we will aim to arrive around 4 hours prior to service as we would have got much of our catering equipment ready. Our waiting staff will arrive at least one hour before they are needed, to also ensure they are fully familiar with the environment they are going to be working in! If we are serving the welcome drinks then they will arrive 90 minutes earlier. Our front of house will co-ordinate the staff, ensuring that minor issues.... speeches running over, delays due to photographs, delay between church and venue etc. etc. have no effect on our adjusted timings for service and that we adapt accordingly to any situation with ease and without fuss! We do not rush to leave when we have finished, we feel that there is nothing worse than clearing away our equipment while guests are enjoying your special day, so we are very discreet and no-one will know when we are slowly retreating!
