We had a Chef - Norbert - on Christmas Day and the whole event was fantastic .
Chef Norbert was really good and made the day a real treat !
The lunch went very well, everyone had plenty to eat, Norbert was very Organised, Professional, and calm
Fantastic evening, food was delicious, service outstanding.
We had such a great experience and our chef provided us with great food and entertainment! The service from start to finish was effortless and I would highly reccommend! Excellent all round! :-)
Fantastic birthday dinner!
I spoke with the Chef, Norbert Klosowski, ahead of the dinner. We spoke about the menu, making it more personal for the occasion and to accommodate some dietary requirements. Norbert clearly knew how he could adapt the menu and went the extra mile to make it suitable for all of my guests. I could tell from our conversation that he had everything in hand which was a great relief!
Norbert arrived on time and got straight to work with preparing our meal. He came very well prepared with everything that he needed so there was really nothing for us to do but enjoy the company of our guests. The table was set, dishes served and explained, everything was done to the highest standard.
Overall, possibly the best dining experience we've ever had!
Norbert was professional and courteous from the start, i haven't used this service before so was pleasantly surprised. Norberts food was amazing and great value for money, the portions were certainly generous 😬
The food was delicious. Norbert was excellent at communicating and helping us choose our menu prior to the event. And he was really nice to meet in person
Norbert was professional and friendly, the food was delicious and he left the kitchen clean and tidy.
Chef Norbert was amazing! A true restaurant experience with the convenince of having the children in bed. The food was phenomenal and the little touches were very much appreciated. He had bought a gift for the birthday boy as well as holding my baby while I ate the delicious meal. I would definitely recommend Chef Norbert and the experience as a whole. Made a special birthday even more special!
The experience received was excellent from start to finish. Norbert was professional, on time, very responsive to my requests as I had a number of dietary requirements. I would highly recommend Norbert.
Norbert was fab. Prior to the party, he made a few changes to his menu to accommodate various guests. He arrived when he said he would, the good was amazing and I didn’t have to worry about a thing.
Top marks to Norbert. The food was delicious, well prepared and nicely presented.
Excellent service, delicious food. No trouble adapting to our last-minute changes, which was a massive relief
Truly a wonderful experience. Booked for my partner’s birthday. Design your own 4 course gourmet menu. Norbert, our chef, 100% delivered on our brief. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We had a wonderful evening from start to finish...from canapés to dessert. Top class!
The chef, Norbert was excellent. He was flexible with our menu allowing us to make some minor adjustments. The food was superb, along with his attentive approach. A truly fabulous experience. Would highly recommend.
Brilliant service and our chef Norbert was excellent!
Norbert did a wonderful job of making my birthday dinner extra special. Communication was good,
the menu well thought out, the food sublime and the extra personal touches were really appreciated. Eg: bread and olives
and a card and present.
He cooked singlehandedly for thirteen of us!. If you like you’re portions large this is your man! However if they were reduced just a little in size I think the food on the plate would look a little more elegant. This however is a small point in an otherwise faultless three course meal with canapés.
Thank you Norbert!
We had a fantastic evening thanks to Norbert. The food was top quality, the service was polite and courteous, everything was taken care of down to the clearing away and washing up.
Amazing food and expertly prepared in a very small kitchen. Generous portions and chef cleaned up impeccably afterwards. Fantastic experience. Will be booking again!
The delightful Chef Norbert created the perfect intimate tasting menu birthday dinner for me & my husband. He was a pleaseure to have in my home. Chef Norbert is a generous chef, his skill apparent and his food delicious. Book him!
The food was amazing, service great, highly recommend the whole experience to everyone.
I had high expectations before having used La Belle before, but they were exceeded such was the fantastic service provided. The chef was incredibly flexible, friendly and talented! Highly reccomend both him and La Belle for any social occasion you have. Thank you for making my 30th birthday so wonderful!
It was great from start to finish and I would definitely use this service again.
We had an outstanding private dinner experience with Chef Norbert Klosowski. He is extremely polite, professional, friendly and accommodating. I arranged this private dinner as a surprise birthday gift to my husband. Chef Norbert went above and beyond to make this experience very memorable. From accommodating our vegetarian food request, to adding a delicious bread that he made to adding a personal touch, by giving my husband a birthday card and giving us a bottle of prosecco. Chef Norbert was a joy to have in our home. He has such a great personality, we could have talked to him for hours and hours. The food was fabulous! From the presentation, to the taste and the elegance in which he served us our food! Thank you Chef Norbert, for such an amazing experience. We’ll never forget and hope to hire you again soon.
The chef Norbert was extremely helpful and very accommodating.
We all had a lovely meal
Having had a sensational meal cooked by Neal on Friday, we were disappointed by last night’s experience. Norbert was friendly and punctual but aspects of the meal left much to be desired.
Well I’m sitting in my immaculate kitchen the morning after the night before. Norbert was amazing & produced a scrumptious feast for the 8 of us. From his homemade bread through to the beautifully presented cheese board each of the courses were delicious, perfectly cooked & eye catching. Thank you so much - as the hostess I could also enjoy the whole experience too. I would highly recommend Norbert, he was a delight to have in our home, thank you
Norbert is a consummate proffessional and a talented chef. He took great pride in delivering above expectation and he was an absolute pleasure to deal with. His portions were also very generous and he was flexible with the menu also. I look forward to hiring Norbert again. Thank you for making our evening a special one.
Our chef Norbert and his colleague arrived and we instantly felt confident and comfortable with them in our accommodation, and sure they would deliver some excellent food. Norbert did not disappoint! He made us some absolutely delicious homemade bread which all 14 of us were very impressed by, followed by three more delicious courses. The food was of a highly professional standard, much as you would expect from a top-class restaurant.
There was lots of food, and Norbert and his colleague were kind enough to wrap up what we weren't able to eat for us to eat the next day, which we absolutely did. Norbert was even thoughtful enough to bring my mother, whose birthday it was, a card and small gift.
We would encourage anyone who is thinking about using this private chef to do so- it is fantastic, professional service at a very reasonable price.
The whole booking process was also really effective and simple.
Thanks ever so much again!
Norbert had some problems finding us (it was a very remote location!) but once he was there he quickly made up the time and we sat down only a short time after we expected to which was not a problem.
Our food was delicious and very well presented
The meal we had was fantastic. It was beyond our expectations and would highly recommend it to others. Nor berg was extremely professionalism and catered the meal to our needs.
Great level of contact and a very good attention to detail from chef Norbert. We had a very long chat to make sure everything was covered! The food was divine in all ways - taste and presentation. The kitchen was left in immaculate condition. It was really great to watch Norbert work - a very special evening. Highly recommended.
Thank you for an amazing evening & making my friend's birthday so special! Your food was outstanding, everyone was well catered for and the portions were very generous. We hope to see you again soon!
Everything was excellent! canapes were to die for, such a great selection.
Everything was excellent. Norbert was friendly, efficient and helpful. His meal was just wonderful and my family and I had a fantastic evening. It was just perfect.
We had Norbert come along and cook for a large group of us at a rented cottage whilst we had a murder mystery dinner.
The food was outstanding! Norbet was very professional and friendly and went out of his way to make sure everyone was catered for, the vegan options looked so good, even I was jealous!!
Every single person in the group raved about the meal and the stress that it took off us for the first evening was brilliant. Norbert just got on with it, and you couldn't even tell he'd been there after he left, the kitchen was spotless!
Brilliant food, great service and a really enjoyable experience, wouldn't hesitate to use Norbert again for any event we had. Thanks for making our weekend even more special!
Norbert was very punctual and came prepared which was great. He was very polite throughout the evening and attentive to our needs. The menu he prepared was delicious and all guests were impressed with the standard of the food and the portion sizes. It was highly appreciated that he was able to accommodate the whole menu to be gluten free at short notice, and that he trialled both the breads and dessert to ensure they were to his standard when using gluten free flours. Overall the presentation and quality of the menu served was fantastic and would recommend his services to others in the future.
Absolutely loved our chef Norbert, wouldn't hesitate to ask him to cater for us again! All 8 people were singing his praises and the food was just Out of this world! Cu soon norbert :-)
Our whole experience was fab! The food was delicious and Norbert was professional, polite and friendly. Our party we're more than happy with the service and food delivered on the night. We couldn't of asked for anything more! Definitely will be using La Belle Assiette again in the near future, thank you!
Food was outstanding and the kitchen was spotless when he left!
Norbert created a delicious meal for 8 adults, which suited all tastes. It was high in quality and rich in flavour, prepared and served with professionalism. The portion sizes were extremely generous and the food that was left Norbert kindly plated up for us to enjoy later. This meal will go down in our memories as a highly enjoyable experience and we would highly recommend.
The sales staff were helpful but overly aggressive with the follow up, I received numerous calls and emails when I had given specific instruction as to when to expect the payment to come through as I was managing a large group. The chef was helpful and organised especially as it was not his menu that had been chosen.
the chef was perfectly presented and prepared and was warm and friendly and contacted me in advance to personalise our experience, which made the whole experience more enjoyable
This was the 1st time we had hired a chef & we were not disappointed! The whole experience was exceptional & chef Norbert was outstanding. Very professional & friendly. He was really well prepared and considering he had such a small kitchen to work in (holiday lodge) he did a fantastic job. We really enjoyed the food & Norbert even got my husband eating vegetables! Presentation was stunning and the service was brilliant. I am now trying to think of another special occasion to book again
We booked Norbert's sharing menu for a family Boxing Day meal. With 10 people to feed including 2 children this was a perfect menu as there was plenty of choice for everyone even though we all have different tastes. Everyone agreed the food was gorgeous, we all ate until we could physically eat no more & there was enough food left over to easily feed another 10 people which Norbert kindly left with us.
A great meal & experience - I would definitely recommend Norbert
Exceptional service from both the company and the Chef. First class in all respects...and not forgetting the food which was Michelin standard...genuinely... I'm looking forward to the next excuse to use Norbert..
Great chef, not intrusive, food Michelin star, tidied up brilliantly had a fantastic evening, will definitely do it again
Norbert's service was great from start to finish. We had a great chat about the evening and meal about a week before the date. I had some requests to alter the menu slightly and he was very accommodating.
The food was absolutely delicious with very generous portions. The canapes were a lovely extra touch.
We were a hen and as such were quite loud and the alcohol was flowing. Norbert and his colleague (sorry I've forgotten his name) took it all in their stride and were great sports, while continuing to make our lovely dinner.
I can't recommend him enough.
Norbert was very professional from start to finish. He was extremely organised and prepared which was obvious on the night when everything ran smoothly. He was friendly and approachable at all times. I will definitely be hiring him again!!
Norbert is an excellent chef. He is very professional, discrete yet entertaining. His dishes tasted as good as they looked. The food was amazing, especially the dessert (I am not a big fan of desserts and I ate twice). Overall, we had a lovely evening thanks to Norbert. I definitely recommend him!
This dinner was delightful. Great menu choice, beautifully presented and very tasty. Would hire Norbert for my own dinners anytime.
Very good food and friendly and professional chef.
I enjoyed very much the appetizer which was light and very tasty.
The started was good, but maybe a little too heavy.
The spiced duck breast with thyme was delicious.
Being a found of desserts, the chocolate and honey mousse wasn't too heavy. In my opinion, there was a good combination and balance between the sweetness of the Dark chocolate mousse and the acidity of the orange and ginger!
Thank you for this moment!
Delicious starter, main an dessert! Would serve starter in slightly smaller portions
Norbert cooked a truly exceptional dinner for us. All dishes were delicious and sophisticated and the portions were very generous. My favourite was the duck breast, which was prepared to perfection and incredibly tasty. Norbert is very friendly, clean and efficient. I highly recommend him!
My star dish would probably be smoked Haddock and chorizo sausage risotto topped with soft poached egg.
I love onions, risotto rice and chocolate. All three are so versatile. You can even burn your onion and still will taste good. Chocolate can be seen in many different textures and can be mixed with fruit, chillies, salt, and almost everything you can think of.
Working as a private chef allows me to really put my heart on the plate and cook to all needs for people who wants to experience my food.
