Penny & Jo – 22nd July 2017
130 guests - YHA Okehampton
Andy and Debbie cooked paella for 130 at our wedding back in July and they were brilliant.
From the minute we got in touch more than a year before they couldn’t have been more responsive or more helpful. We couldn’t get to taste their paella at a public event so a few months before the wedding they came round to our house and cooked in our kitchen for 4 of us. The food was delicious and we really enjoyed the evening. It was a great way of getting to know Andy and Debbie and really getting a feel for how committed they are to providing an excellent service.
Around the wedding date, nothing was too much trouble and nothing fazed Andy. The gazebo was put up at our convenience in torrential rain but there were no issues.
On the day, Andy and his team just arrived and did their thing really surreptitiously! It was only when the delicious smells started that we realised they were there! We have had so many comments from guests about the paella, all of them raving about how delicious it was, how much there was of it, how friendly the team were. The speed with which all our guests were served was incredible.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Andy and Debbie to anyone. The quality, value for money, convenience and professionalism we received was outstanding and contributed in no small way to the best day ever.
Many many thanks
Penny and Jo

Dear Andy and Debbie
We just wanted to say a massive heartfelt thank you for the absolutely brilliant catering you provided for our garden party at the weekend.
We appreciated meeting you before the event and the flexibility you gave us when we were choosing menus (canapes & paella) and numbers etc. It was all so easy and relaxed.
When you arrived to set up before the party we were blown away by how quietly and efficiently you set everything up – whilst we in contrast, were running around trying to get everything else ready…we hardly knew you were there!
The food itself was nothing short of spectacular – “a treat for the eyes as well as the belly“, as one of our guests described the three colourful and delicious paellas. You managed to serve a hundred guests so quickly, there was never even a chance for a queue to form – perfect!
We are so grateful to you both, and to Zoe for assisting you so well. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Buen Appetito to anyone looking for a high quality, friendly and professional catering service.
Thank you so much.

Buen Apetito provided the catering for our wedding breakfast on 29th July, 2017 – we chose the plated service, and it was fabulous!!
The service we received from Andy & Debbie at Buen Apetito was absolutely brilliant. From the very start it was always a personal, friendly and professional service. They were always there to answer any questions in the lead up to the wedding, and were very flexible and easy going. They allowed us to provide our own desserts and were happy to serve these for us, as it was important to us for some of our close family to make our desserts.
On the day, the service was flawless and the food absolutely delicious! I spoke with Andy when he and his team arrived the day before the wedding, to agree all the final details – nothing was too much to ask and they even upgraded our tablecloths free of charge (to their own expense and hassle as they had to return to collect them the next day!) as those we had requested weren’t available. On the day, everything ran smoothly – they ran our bar for us, served our scones (in place of canapes) & prosecco, and of course served their wonderful paella.
The team of staff were all very friendly and went above and beyond to make sure everything ran well – the food was served quickly and efficiently, drinks were kept topped up, tables cleared etc. The smell of the food cooking had everyone’s mouths watering and when it arrived it didn’t disappoint! Everyone loved it, and there was plenty of food – many people went up for seconds, thirds and even fourths!!
The price they offered was unbeatable by any of the other caterers we enquired with, but nothing was compromised.
We are so grateful to Buen Apetito for being part of our wedding day, and for serving such wonderful food that I think everyone will remember!!
Thank you for everything – we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone!
All the very best, and thanks again

Andy and Debbie recently catered for our wedding on 8th August 2017. Our guests are still talking about how sensational their food was and we couldn’t agree more! Nothing was too much trouble for Andy & Debbie. They made our day so smooth, easy, and stress-free, I can’t recommend them enough!
Their food was amazing, they were wonderful to all of guests, and they really helped us feel at ease; that they had everything under control! They are such a dynamic duo, and I would use them again in a heartbeat!
Thank you so much for making our wedding wonderful! Until the next party!

Dear Debbie and Andy,
The two of you, and the rest of your team, were absolutely fantastic. What you did could not have been bettered, both in terms of the quality of service, the food, your charm and general attention to detail.
Nothing was too much trouble for you, and so many people commented on how much they enjoyed the food, that I’m sure (and I sincerely hope) that you might get some repeat business from it.
I had the most fantastic day, which was due in no small part to your contribution.
