We had Carlos and Tani cook for our large group (16 people) and they did a splendid job especially considering the large number of people and the limited grill space. We had the grilled steak and coronado both prepaired very well which came with salad and grilled vegtables. They come in and prepared, cooked, served and cleaned up and are... More

We had a couple of meals catered by Carlos and Tani while in PDC at the end of march. Couldn't be happier. Fantastic food, good portions and likely less expensive than many of the meals we went out for. Real, non-pretentious people who served our Sangria to us at the hot tub, showed us the steak and fish and then... More

Carlos and Tani - thank you so much for giving us such a spectacular evening! Very professional right from the prompt email correspondence through to the cleanup. Carlos and Tani made everything from scratch onsite, except the tortilla chips (they too were very good). 4 couples enjoyed tortilla chips, pico de gallo, guacamole, 2-colour soup (cream of poblano with cream...

We were fortunate enough to be in Playa Del Carmen over Valentines Day, 2012 so my friend and I decided to surprise our wives with a special dinner prepared in-home, a much better option to dealing with crowded restaurants. Clandestine e-mails were traded for weeks prior to our arrival to plan all the details of our special evening. Carlos and... More

This is a vacation treat that is not to be missed. Come in after a day at the beach, relax and enjoy Happy Hour around your own pool or living room while Carlos and Tani cook the most fantastic meal you could ask for. Do not miss the homemade sangria and the sopa azteca.. It is something we look forward... More

It was a great treat and pleasure to have Carlos and Tanis prepare a meal for us. The food was excellent, the price affordable and evening memorable. We had a steak and fish meal and the fish was absolutely wonderful. The steak was great and the salad and avacado tzatzki dressing was over the top. Carlos provides great explanations of... More

This was such a fun and different way to experience some authentic Mexican cuisine, all in the comfort of our own villa. From the email communication to the moment Carlos & Tani left our villa, it was all so professional. Tani was great in responding to all of email inquiries in setting up the evening. The food was delicious and... More
