Hi Steve, The evening was great. Thank you so much for providing us with both excellent food and service. Many of the guests commented on the delicious fare and extend their compliments to you. It was a pleasure to have you there keeping things under control in the kitchen & leaving it all so clean and tidy afterwards. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and would not hesitate to contact you next time I need to cater for an event. You were a star!!

Steve from Stoves Dining made a Non wedding day very special for my daughter and her fiancé! They wanted a Greek bbq and we got so much more - home made flatbreads - gorgeously cooked meats and amazing salads - followed by wonderful deserts. Steve is a great chef and extremely professional and a really likeable guy. I would highly recommend him and his team.
