Harefield Barn - 18th December 2021
Amazing Wedding Caterers! We first met Andy and Debbie at a wedding fayre and liked them straight away. They were really pragmatic, not pushy and just seemed keen to deliver what we wanted and a good service. We initially booked them for December 2020, for canapes, 3 courses, tea and coffee and evening food. They gave us a great price which included everything we needed. Then Covid arrived however we still wanted to get married with our close friends and family, Andy and Debbie were really accommodating and catered for the small party brilliantly and under restrictions with big platters for each person. We still however wanted to have our big day which we had last Saturday. In the build up Andy and Debbie were really supportive of our plans and so accommodating, being overly helpful where they could to make sure all our plans were realised. On the day they were simply excellent. Their staff were a credit to them and delivered a brilliant service from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble and they did welcome drinks right up to evening food. The food was fantastic and so many guests came up to us advising of how good the food was which was great to hear, this includes the evening food which also went down really really well with our guests. The portion sizes were perfect for a wedding and the food was really professional and classy. We honestly couldn't recommend these guys enough. They really made our weddings so so special and we couldn't thank them enough!!

Higher Eggbear - 11th September 2021
Fantastic caterers - can't recommend highly enough! Andy, Debbie & Marcus catered our wedding at Higher Eggbeer farm at the beginning of the month. We asked for an entirely vegetarian menu for the wedding breakfast, evening buffet and paella lunch on the following day. They went above and beyond our expectations - Marcus is vegan and helped design a menu based on our original ideas, they provided a wonderful tasting and were happy to change the bits we wanted to change, came up with brilliant ideas when we weren't sure what to do about desserts and took into account our preference to reduce food waste and use as little plastic packaging/ single use packaging as possible. They were professional, friendly and efficient throughout the whole process of booking, planning and on the day. They provided the exact right amount of staff on the day so that no-one waited long for their food or drinks and all the staff were friendly and attentive. We had so many compliments on the catering - many from non-vegetarians who had loved experiencing a change from what they would normally choose and were impressed on how delicious the food was. We had a guest who is allergic to gluten and she was amazed - the caterers made a full set of gluten free versions of the canapés just for her, and the same for the whole meal, including gluten free breads, main course and desserts. She said it was amazing to be so included and not have to miss out on what everyone else was having. I highly recommend Andy and his team at Buen Apetito, we couldn't be happier with the service they provided and will be recommending them to everyone!

Buen Apetito provided lovely vegan Canapés, 3 course dinner and evening food on our wedding day. Canapés we’re delicious and everyone loved trying new things, a big hit was the canapé vegan scotch egg and the pie for main course. Paella was delicious and we had plenty left that we enjoyed at home the following day. Was a great introduction to vegan food for people that have not tried it before. Staff were lovely and assertive. Thank you Andy and your team for making our day a special one

I cant recommend Buen Apetito highly enough. We had our daughter s wedding 2w ago and everything was completely perfect from the first provisional arrangements, through to our own personal tasting, to their arrival set up, help before , during and after the busy day ( the windiest day of the summer!) and of course the really delicious food. Andy and Debbie were so kind, caring and professional. They were happy to help with everything from the drinks at the ceremony venue and back to the home where we had a marquee. They were keen to help with all the different dietary requirements providing different types of paella, delicious canapes, sharing platters and wonderful desserts. We have had so many letters of thanks and the food was an alternative delicious very well received banquet! The home made evening food of pulled pork burgers and cheese was also very well received and helping with cutting the cake, tea and coffee was wonderful. We did not have to worry about anything on the day and helped to make it more fun and relaxed. Huge thanks to Any and Debbie and their team!

Buen Apetito delivered for my (our :) wedding day in Devon. From start to finish Andy, Debbie and their team were OUTSTANDING- the food is sensational, they are mega lovely people who love what they do and they do it with a smile, great value for money and also offering something completely different from the bog standard caterers! Harry and I could not be happier and we are still receiving compliments and enquiries from our guests as to who the food was done by and how amazing it was ;) Thank you Buen Apetito for the best experience we could have hoped for! They say the food is the most important aspect when putting on such an event and they did not disappoint! We are still smiling from cheek to cheek from their personal yet professional presence on our special day and the delicious flavours from every bite :) Thank you again.
