Gabor was absolutely fantastic and his food was incredible. He was the perfect chef and host. Highly recommend.
Gee (Gabor) cooked the most amazing dinner for us to celebrate my 30th birthday. We were a group of 8 adults and each one of us was extremely impressed with the dinner. Gee is such a friendly person, whilst being very professional too. We all felt really at ease in the house as he took care of the cooking.
He served us himself and each course was delivered at the perfect temperature.
The dinner itself was simply delicious with one of the best lamb dishes I've ever had. My family is French so the expectations were quite high and I can definitely say that they were blown away by what he put on the table!
When he left the kitchen it was sparklingly clean, and we genuinely had nothing to do except relax.
I highly recommend chef Gabor and his services. We all had a really fantastic experience and now have wonderful memories of the evening thanks to him.
Very efficient and friendly
The chef Gee and the waitress Jo could not have been more perfect. The food was AMAZING (the taste and the presentation). They worked hard, were professional and fun and left everything spotless. My expectations were high but they exceeded them on every front and I am already trying to think of an excuse to us them again (as are many of my guests). Thank you.
We had a wonderful time and the food was amazing.
Gabor was absolutely fantastic- he was so friendly, the food was delicious and he was really flexible about timings and menu items. He even provided some surprises to help us celebrate my mum's 60th which really made the night! I wouldn't hesitate to have Gabor round for another special occasion - it couldn't have been any nicer!
We had a fabulous meal this week cooked by Gee. He was lovely and very unobtrusive, cooking us 5 delicious dishes for a family 70th birthday party. Highly recommended! The lobster ravioli with lobster bisque was my favourite, but all was delicious and presented beautifully. He left the kitchen spotless when he left too.
We booked our chef for a friends hen do. The food was amazing! Reasonably priced; the food quality was exceptional too. To top it off all the meal was prepared (even the table) and washing up done. We couldn’t have wished for a nicer chef. The bride was over the moon and will remember this experience for a very long time. Highly recommended!
A wonderful experience flexible to our preferences. G was a consummate professional keeping the kitchen area tidy throughout the meal, being easy company in our large family group and very obliging. The food he produced was superbly presented. Would not hesitate to engage G again
I can’t put in to words how amazing the meal was that Gee, the chef, cooked for us! The presentations, crockery and food itself was all 10/10. Everyone said how delicious it was, I honestly cannot fault it or recommend him enough! Thank you so much for making the hen weekend so fab.
We were very impressed with our chef, his manner and professionalism was superb. The process choosing a menu was simple and straightforward and the assistance I received was timely and helpful.
We had a great experience and a wonderful meal with our chef Gee for a friend’s hen party. The communication prior to the meal was great and Gee was able to cater for all dietary requirements. Gee was very unobtrusive and discrete and did a brilliant job of cooking and serving the dinner and clearing and washing the plates and dishes, whilst leaving us to enjoy the food. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it. Thank you Gee!
Absolutely love Gee and my experience of using this service. Gee was efficient, punctual, super friendly and, most importantly, his food was stunning. Highly recommend.
Fantastic dining experience which exceeded all our expectations. Great communication prior to our event with the chef ensuring all our needs were met. On the day the Chef & waiter work really hard ensuring both meal & service was special.
Thank you SO much to Gee for such a memorable evening. He cooked us the most delicious meal (created by him but personalised to include the ingredients we wanted). It was such a fab experience and we would highly recommend Gee. He went above and beyond, laying the table, adding another canapé to the menu on the night and was both calm and friendly throughout the evening. We can’t wait to have him again!
The whole experience from initial enquiry to the evening of our event was easy and professionally handled. We had a couple of dietary requirement for our party. Gee called well ahead of our event to clarify exactly what we needed. He was very friendly and accommodating. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Gee arrived for our event in good time, bringing with him everything he required to prepare the meal, as well as the crockery and cooking equipment. He was friendly and chilled, even with well oiled members of the hen party getting in his way and wanting to chat with him while he was working. He served the most delicious and beautifully presented meal we could have wished for. We would recommend Gee and La Belle Assiette to anyone looking to host a special meal at home.
Just brilliant. So professional and the food was presented beautifully and tasted great. Beyond my expectations. Would recommend to anyone
Chef Gee (and Jo who came to help him serve) created an outstanding seven course meal for six of us, this was for my 70th birthday held in a holiday rental cottage in the New Forest.
Its easy to go overboard with fulsome praise but in this instance it is well-deserved, a number of our party declared the meal "...the best (I) have ever eaten..." - this from a group who love their food!
Chef Gee's attention to detail and perfect timing of each dish confirmed to me that I had made the right choice in selecting him as our Chef, especially as both he and Jo are really nice friendly people and quick to put us at our ease - I hope we were equally friendly, this was a new experience for us all!
We all wish him well in his future career, I have no doubt that he has a great future ahead of him.
I have never hired a personal chef before and up front I'd like to say the entire experience was easy, seamless and extremely well managed. Much in part to how La Belle Assiette made it easy to find and book a chef at short notice, how quickly they processed the booking and confirmed the reservation, to how they followed up to ensure everything had gone well.... I myself was slow on providing feedback to ensure all had gone according to plan.
However the rest of the kudos has to go to Gabor (Gee). Very shortly after booking Gee contacted me in regards to some questions I had about changing aspects of the chosen menu. Gee was extremely accomodating and offered alternates very easily. Several times prior I contacted Gee to which he was super responsive and helpful.
On the evening, Gee arrived on time and was really pleasant to chat with while he was working. He ensured the evening went well, asked about timings for each course and table seating arrangements. He also set the table, served a 6 course dinner for 7 people, washed up and left no trace that he'd ever been there!
We had several different canapes with our 6 courses of, trout, soup, scallops, lamb and creme brûlée... all of which was cooked and presented sublimely. Truly amazing food... Have I forgotten a dish maybe? Not at all... the one dish that took us all completely by suprise, Gee's Basil Granita. Such a simple dish, meant only to lighten the palate after the main meal was a massive hit with the entire family; fresh, exploding with taste and so very moreish! You have to ask him to make it for you when you hire him!
Another really nice touch by Gee was cooking more portions for most of the courses. We essentially had a very high class restaurant meal and then at the end of the table, having extra servings for that course as you wanted it. This was especially appreciated when the lamb course was served!!
I whole heartedly recommend Gee for being professional, personable and for cooking damn well amazing food!
BEST DECISION WE MADE! I booked Gabor Halmai (Gee) via Le Belle Assiette for a private dinner party at my best friends hen party. The website was very easy to use and any questions I had were answered quickly. Gee was extremely communicative and immediately put me at ease when I asked for changes and tweaks to the menu. He couldn't have been more accommodating. He arrived on time and was very well organised. The food was BEYOND AMAZING! Our guests could not believe the quality and the professionalism. Gee was friendly and happy. He then tidied up (which was amazing!) and we were sad to see him go. I would recommend this service to anyone thinking of hosting a private dinner party or for any personal catering requirements. The value for money for what you get is simply amazing. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!
We’ve had an absolutely fantastic day. Gee couldn’t have been more helpful in accommodating two of our family with ‘special’ tastes, and all the food was magnificent. An absolute joy to be treated to a great meal with all the washing up sorted too. Highly, highly recommended!
A fantastic meal, service, and just general experience. The food was honestly impeccable and Gee couldn't have been more discreet and tidy during his time at the house. Thanks very much. Rosanne
Gee was great. He fitted right in from the moment he arrived and amazed us all with his wonderful menu. It was a pleasure to watch him at work and he was polite, professional and good fun, playing along with a surprise element to the evening for one of the guests. The food was outstanding and looked just as good as it tasted. We would certainly recommend this service to others based on our fantastic experience. Without hesitation-5 stars.
Very easy to book online and Gabor (or Gee) got in touch very soon after to discuss details and sent me lots of options as we wanted to change the starter.
He was so friendly and helpful and the food was absolutely delicious. Despite the dining table being in the kitchen we could barely tell Gee was there and everything from laying the table, the presentation of the food and most importantly the taste was extremely professional and very impressive. This was a surprise for my Dad’s 60th birthday and made the weekend so special. I’d like to say a big thank you to Gee for such a wonderful experience!
Booking was very easy and changing the precise guest numbers was also easy. The chef was very accommodating with complicated dietary requirements, and extremely professional both beforehand and in the day. But most of all, the food was amazing, very high standard, interesting, tasty, and beautifully presented. Would definitely use this service again.
A comment on your experience - Booking through a catering company you haven’t used before can be a bit nerve racking, but I would 100% recommend. From the start the chef was great with communication, he chatted to me about options I could switch on the menu and talked to me about arrival times and logistics. He was on time and polite and you hardly knew he was in the house until the food was served. The food was gorgeous and he really made it special with the presentation. He cleaned up everything and I must admit it was cleaner than when he started afterwards. Amazing value, it was the highlight of everyone’s weekend.
Fantastic booking service which is really easy to use.
Gee & Deo are brilliant chefs, totally in control from the moment they arrive. Zero fuss and adapt to the new kitchen very quickly.
They generously laid the table and made the room look ready for the dinner.
The menu was delicious and beat all expectations, they even managed a table of 20 men on a stag comfortably.
Gabor cooked for us at my mothers 60th dinner party and the food was absolutely incredible!! He explained everything, got on with it and the food was so incredible. Would highly recommend and will definitely be using again! Thank you
Will definately be using Gabor again - communication beforehand was reassuring and flexible to incorporate specific requirements. On the evening Gabor arrived with plenty of time, was unobtrusive and the food was fantastic - it was a special weekend and Gabor and the meal were excellent
Love it so much have booked again less than a week later!
Incredible service. Gee magically provided us with the most deliciously presented and tasting food. Blown away by the standard of food!
Amazing, efficient, prompt and professional service provided, the meals were excellent Thank you
Our experience both with La Belle Assiette, and with Gabor Halmai has been absolutely flawless. From the immediate chat and advice on the website, to the quick email responses and appropriate recommendations, the company has been great and made the process very easy. What's more, is the chef himself spoke highly of the company, which I feel says a lot.
We had our meal prepared by Gabor Halmai, or Gee, and he quite rightly came very highly recommended. The experience was a total treat; we booked this as a surprise 40th for my brother, and Gee rang beforehand to confirm the details and was very helpful, even kind enough to wait in the lay-by for the birthday boy to get out of the house. He was accommodating, even when I failed to confirm something, he was gracious enough to take the initiative, and he nailed it. On the night itself he was discreet, charming, extremely organised and skilled, willing to answer endless questions from our foodie guests, and ultimately made an evening with friends and family, fun and special.
We are big eaters, and were more than satisfied by the end of the meal, and Gee's food was second to none - I can't imagine eating that well in a restaurant for a remotely comparable cost. He also left the kitchen better than he found it: to be able to stand up and walk away with a glass in hand and no debris left behind was the icing on the cake.
Honestly, I don't tend to gush so much in reviews, but from start to finish this was a wonderful experience, and I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending both Gee, and La Belle Assiette. I'm sure we'll be back.
Gee was an excellent chef, cooking our small party an amazing meal fit for my dad's 70th birthday. He was also very friendly and helpful throughout the whole process. Thanks very much!
Chef Gabor was brilliant.
He arrived promptly, got straight down to work and was very friendly and helpful.
The food and service he provided were excellent. The menu was well thought out and every course was delicious with portion size being perfect. He made it a very special and memorable Christmas eve/birthday treat for all of us.
After cooking he cleaned my entire kitchen and I think left it cleaner than when he arrived!
Would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone.
Very pleasant and professional. Great menu
The service has been amazing. Very easy booking mechanism with fast and direct correspondence. Our chef was amazing. Very professional, punctual and communicative. Would highly recommend and would definitely feel confident using them again
I have to say what a unique experience this was having someone come to our house to cook for us and our friends for my wife's birthday, Our chef Gee was amazing all 6 courses of food was 5 star,he also helped me with the menu.
Gee had cleaned up the kitchen (you wouldn't know he had been..)
I would recommend this to anyone.
Many thanks to La Belle Assiette and our chef Gee
Gee was lovely, he came in did a wonderful job and cleaned up perfectly. Could not fault at all.
I can’t fault anything, our chef was professional, the food was delicious and served on time and he left the kitchen spotless. I would definitely recommend him.
We had an absolutely fantastic meal, with different dietary requirements catered for perfectly. It was wonderful not to have to do any preparation for our dinner party, and particularly nice not to have to wash up after our guests left! I'd highly recommend this service to anyone looking for a restaurant experience in the comfort of their own home, and would happily recommend Chef Gabor Halmai in particular.
Our chef G was amazing! He went above and beyond to make our night really special. Anyone who books him will be amazed his food was so delicious and he was completely professional and flexible. Thank you!!
Chef Gee was very approachable and helpful. He was very well organised and attentive to everyone’s dietary needs. The food tasted amazing and he left the kitchen very clean and tidy . I would
Definitely recommend him.
Gee contacted me the week before and discussed the evening. He was punctual and the food he made was amazing. He was able to cater for the people with allergies and the service was brilliant.
Well, I have many!
Salt, sugar, vinegar
I love the complexity and the freedom
