Everything was perfect, Cesar is our absolute favourite!
Great personality and super service!
Cesar was excellent
He arrived early
Very well organised
The quality of the food was amazing and enabled us to enjoy our celebration with ease
He is an asset to your business
Cesar is a gentleman, the food was fantastic and we had one of the best evenings ever
Professionalism, punctuality and kindeness, the chef was happy to discuss with our guests with a smile and I have nothing negative to mention. Well done
Cesar was fantastic. He was well-prepared and came up with a superb menu that catered for a strict vegetarian guest as well as five carnivours. He was personable, organised, punctual and communicative. Beyond that, every dish was delicious, and he even stored leftovers for me (I had a rather indulgent lunch the next day). Not only that, he left my kitchen cleaner than when he'd started, so all I had to do was add the wine glasses to the dishwasher and turn it on.
Very good - food and service were excellent
A fantastic dinner with a fabulous chef
The experience with Chef Cesar was a real success. 6 months after our dinner, we are still talking about his "New season asparagus, 63 degree egg, hazelnuts and prosciutto". One of my guests has already tried to cook some 63-degree eggs 3 times without succeeding... That was a unique experience we should taste again! The seabass was beautifully prepared as well. We all loved it. Many thanks!
Very good quality food and Cesar was a pleasant person to have in your home.
Cesar prepared a very tasty, varied selection of canapes for a Champagne Reception for a charity event in Mayfair attended by numerous celebrities. Cesar was extremely helpful and personable and managed to create his delicious canapes in the a very tiny, basic kitchen. He is a very talented and professional chef and I will defintely call upon his culinary skills again for future events/dinner parties.
Brilliant chef and food
Cesar is friendly and professional, helpful and was responsive to my requirements . Came with a helper which was great. Lovely main course (sea bass on roasted veggies) and dessert (pear cake with salted caramel sauce). First course was mushroom risotto and was not as al dente as would have liked - and could have been more nicely presented. Otherwise all great and efficient. Thank you
What a brilliant chef! as a Mustard Sommelier I absolutely ecstatic with how well he played on the requested mustard flavoured dishes.
I would strongly recommend Caesar for any event! He can really compliment your dinner party.

This is the second time I have used Cesar for a canape reception at my office. He is really organised and clean and tidy and easy to work with, particularly when I am running around trying to do other things! The canapes were delicious and everyone commented on how enjoyable they were and there weren't any left at the end. I would happily use him again.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le menu du chef César Fernandez avec des ingrédients simples mais cuits à chaque fois soit de manière originale soit avec quelque chose d'original et un mélange de styles qui marchent très bien ensemble. Une excellente soirée!
Friendly, personable and delicious... Cesar delighted us with some rich flavours and textures, without any superfluous distractions. It is tasteful, in all sense of the term.
Lovely chef, delicious and so nice-looking dressing, perfect cooking, seasoning and quantity. Chef César, Thank you !
César is a great chef and we had a perfect evening with stunning food. He kindly switch the starter to accommodate us: the flaked confit of rabbit was amazing. Guinea fowl as main was delicious too. Great experience as always!
We had a lovely evening with food that striked the right note: simple, tasty, and well-presented. I still have very fond memories of the chocolate tart. It was simply amazing!
We had a fantastic evening with Cesar, he is very nice and friendly and also very professional and organised. We have a small kitchen but he managed to serve a tasteful 3 course dinner for 8 people, all on time and beautifully presented. My kids loved to see him prepare a whole octopus, and he left all left-overs nicely wrapped in the fridge, so we even had a nice meal the next day. Highly recommended!
Well balanced dishes and flavours. I particularly loved the dessert which was exceptional!
Excellent !!! Lovely dinner , special food and very kind chef . I ll suggest him to other friends .
Thank you very much!
It was excellent. The service, and the cleaning as well. Everything was perfect. We enjoyed a lot the dinner! And we will definitively use your services again.
Cesar is a very talented chef. His food hit all the right notes. His cuisine is both refined and generous with the right touch of extravagance. His octopus was perfectly cooked and I really enjoyed the main dish. The desert was out of this world! He is very friendly and organised. I really enjoyed being around him.
Innovant, rafine, et delicieux... Un roi du dessert
Amazing food from a very friendly chef
Thank you Cesar for a delicious dinner! Enjoyed the three courses, including the octopus starter which was very tatsy and especially the dessert! The lemon cake dessert was simply perfect, and I am a big fan of the white chocolate crumbs!
As a host, I have to say that César was super friendly. Sharing his experience while doing his magic in my own kitchen! Cooking being one of my favourite hobbies I appreciated all the wonderful tips César gave me. The menu was delicious, and he definitely impressed us all with the dessert!
César is a very skilled an personable chef. His cooking knowledge spans from the Spanish most delicious specialties to more international dishes, always with an original touch and attention to the details. Thumbs up !
Fresh, diverse and full of flavour. I was trained classically a but I love to explore different cusisines and ingredients .
Slow cooked octopus, confit potatoes with crispy capers and a very zingy dressing. I love seeing the reaction people have when they try octopus for the first time
Lemon, because you can add it to almost every single dish and it will elevate the flavor to another level.
Fresh herbs, to add a contrast of colour and freshness to my food
Extra virgin olive oil, being Mediterranean as I am, I can´t live without a good olive oil that I will always use for my cooking
Because I like having a close relationship with my clients and being able to create special menus depending on the occassion
