“Wonderful experience and wonderful couple”

Epicurean Chef Services
Reviewed December 31, 2011

Carlos and Tani arrived at our condo two days after Christmas. Our blender did not work and Carlos took a taxi home to get his. They prepared a marvelous meal of guacamole, sangria and chiles and Nogada. Everything was superb, but spending two hours with them in our condo was a special treat. Two days later we went to Carlos' restaurant (Tierra Espana on Ave. Constituentes between 15th and 20th for a wonderful meal and entertainment. Viva Epicurean!

My wife and I, and one of our sons and wife had an excellent meal prepared for us in our villa while vacationing in the Mayan Riviera near Playa del Carmen. Epicurean Chef Services ( Carlos and wife Tani ) will come to your home or vacation home to cook you a first class meal which you can pick ahead of time from their sample menus on their web page www.epicureanchefservices.com. We had the appetizer, guacamole chip dip, sangria to drink, and Mole Oaxaqueno (which was chicken covered with a mole sauce), all prepared in our kitchen. Carlos and wife Tani, explain everything that they are preparing, including the family history behind the meals ingredients, which originate from Carlos's close Mexican family upbringing. Not only do they prepare a fantastic meal, but the couple are very good at keeping everyone happy and entertained with conversation. The meal is very reasonably priced and is no more expensive than a good restaurant.

It was great to have dinner prepared after a long day of touring around Tulum. Loved that there was lots of leftovers to snack on over the next couple of days.

We loved Carlos and Tani. We used their shopping service and it was just what we needed in the right amounts for our stay. Also, we had dinner one night and it was so amazing. I believe we had the TNT. So much food we also had it for breakfast the next day and there were 5 of us. Later in the week we had them cook us brunch and it was just as fabulous. They are such a treat to have around. It was something we find ourselves always talking about.

Carlos and Tani prepared and served an excellent meal to our party of four while we were vacationing at a timeshare in Playa del Carmen last week. The Paella was rich in flavor and the Sangria was mighty tasty and plentiful! Strongly recommend you check them out. It is certainly enjoyable having them come to your villa and cook for you without having to get ready and head out to dinner.
