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.

We had Buen Apetito cater for our wedding on 8th June and Andy and Debbie were absolutely fantastic - they went above and beyond to ensure our wedding day went as smoothly as possible. In the run up to the wedding, Andy was so quick to respond to any queries and he was always so friendly and accommodating. On the day, Andy, Debbie and the team worked so hard to make sure the food was perfect and they also served our cocktails for the welcome drinks, making them look and taste so good! We cannot express how incredibly delicious all the canapés and paellas were - all of our guests have absolutely raved about how much they enjoyed the food. It was by far the best paella we have ever tasted! We really couldn’t have asked for more friendly, professional, reasonably priced and absolutely brilliant people to cater for our wedding, they really took so much stress and worry out of the day. I will not hesitate to hire Andy and Debbie again for any future functions!

We were struggling to find a caterer for a family party in a rented house in Devon until an online concierge suggested Buen Apetito. It was a lucky find! We were planning to have a late lunch party on the large patio (20 adults + 10 children) but on the day the weather wasn't very good. Andy and his team turned up in good time and having had a look at the options we agreed that they would cook in the kitchen, using their enormous Paella pans, and we would eat in the dining room. This worked very well, Andy set everything up and prepared the meal without any problems. We started off with Andy's appetisers in the drawing room which exceeded our expectations both in quantity and quality (and my wife picked up some ideas for her own dinner parties) His team then served us the Paella very efficiently, making suitable arrangements for the children aged between 2 and 10, serving the wine we had provided and generally being very helpful and pleasant. The paella was excellent and the quantities very good, even for my sons in law! Everybody from 2 to 75, raved about the puddings. After the meal everything was washed up, cleared away and the Paella pans removed, all very discreetly. Some leftovers were left in the fridge in case we were peckish later on (no chance). If you are planning a similar event I wouldn't hesitate to give Buen Apetito a try.

I would highly recommend Andy and his team , they were professional and efficient from start to finish. The food was well received and everything was top notch. It is quite difficult to find good quality caterers so I can’t recommend them enough.

"Andy and his fantastic team catered for our University society annual dinner at Exeter Castle, which this year attracted 120 guests. Everyone loved the experience provided, being able to watch their food being cooked in the room with the aromas filling it. Most importantly, the quality of the produce used was excellent, and the taste was first class.
Andy’s paella was a very welcome surprise for all our guests, as most society meals usually consist of an uninspiring roast dinner! Feeding 120 hungry students is a big task but Andy delivered with more than enough food allowing all our guests who wanted to to have seconds, thirds, and for some even fourth portions! 
Andy and his team were extremely helpful throughout, with them doing everything they could to make their guests’ experiences special. You could tell that this was a real passion for them, and something they took great pride in. Right the way from initial discussions, to detailed planning, through to the day itself, Andy was extremely helpful and flexible, going above and beyond to make our night such a great success. 
It is safe to say that this was our best catered event in memory, and we will certainly be recommending Buen Apetito to other societies."

I had to write to thank you for your catering for my 70th birthday party last Saturday night. From your arriving to set up precisely at the time that you said you would to the time that you cleared away and packed up after the meal was thoroughly professional and very efficient. And as for the canapés and the three paellas which covered all dietary requirements the compliments from my guests on your catering both during the party and subsequently have all been fulsome in their praise. So many thanks for making your fantastic contribution to the enjoyment of the evening and making it so stress free for my wife and I.

We cannot thank Buen Apetito enough for catering our wedding! Right from the initial contact, Andy was so helpful and we knew they would be the perfect fit for our day. They came all the way to Manchester to let us have a tasting, which made us extra excited as the food was just incredible! Nothing ever seemed too much trouble. On the day, the whole team were so acommodating and went above and beyond to help us out and cater to everyone. Our vegitarian friends were made as much a priority as everyone else (which often isn't the case!) and they were extremely greatful for that. All of our guests absolutely loved the food, we're still getting compliments about it a month down the line! Probably the best paella we've ever had. It was a pleasure working with Buen Apetito - would 100% recommend.

What can i say other than that we 100% recommend the team and amazing food from Buen Apetito. Andy and his team are true professionals and do absolutely everything they can to ensure your day is a complete success. The process started for us about a year before the wedding when we found our venue. The wedding was to be at the Spanish Barn in Torquay and one of the reasons we chose there was that we could select all of our own suppliers including the catering. My Wife and I both have a love for Paella and came across the website. We got in touch with Andy who arranged a tasting session to make sure we were happy with what they provided. This is such a great idea and really reinforced our decision to choose them as the food was exceptional. The canapes were delicious and the Paella out of this world. So the big day came around and we met Andy at the venue the day before . We discussed the plan for the day and from there it was smooth sailing, all very chilled. The weather turned on us unfortunately but the team dealt with it professionally and with a smile :) We had so many compliments from the guests about the quality and quantity of the food. There was plenty to go round and lots of people had seconds and thirds of the Paella. It really was Fantastic. Thank you to Andy and the team from Buen Apetito for making our day special and doing everything you could to help us enjoy it. It really meant alot. Lots of Love, James and Natalie x

We used Andy and his team for our wedding in July 2018. The service from the very first contact was outstanding and completely took the stress and worry out of the process. In the run up to the day nothing was too much trouble for Andy and we felt we were in safe hands throughout. The food was delicious and we received lots of positive comments from our guests. It was also great having the cooking of the paella on show so the guests could see it being cooked. We would not hesitate in recommending Buen Apetito to anyone. Thanks for a great day.

Tess and I are delighted by the food and service provided by Andy and his team at Buen Apetito. We scoured the internet for all sorts of food options and eventually found Buen Apetito. The pricing setup was simple with no hidden costs and Andy was incredibly flexible when we asked for services he hadn't advertised! Andy visited us the day before our wedding as we were staying locally and talked us through the setup. From start to finish Andy kept us informed. We opted for the paella to be cooked on display which was a real treat. Our guests loved it and so did we! Andy's team served canapés during our reception drinks which were delicious and much needed with the beer and fizz flowing. Next was the dinner, served by Andy's team effortlessly and without fuss. The paella was perfect, full of meat and veg and we had plenty for people to grab seconds if they wanted. It was a super wedding feast, we wouldn't have changed anything and we both want to say a massive thanks to Buen Apetito for being so professional, producing incredibly tasty food and helping to serve up an unbelievably special wedding weekend! Highly recommended and incredibly good value!

Absolutely stunning food with friendly service! Book them now!

From first communication up until the day itself, Andy was fantastic! From his first reply to our initial enquiry, we knew that Buen Apetito would be the ideal caterers for us. We hadn't actually met Andy prior to my husband and I saying 'I do' but Andy's communication with so brilliant that we didn't need to. He was always available to answer questions and kept in constant contact. Andy and his team were just so fantastic from start to finish on our wedding day. They helped set up our welcome drinks and kept everyone topped up during the meal itself. They were so friendly and generous with all of our guests. And the food! The food was incredible and we've had so many compliments about it. We had a few fussy eaters who had never eaten paella before but they were the ones going up for seconds! And everyone was raving about the nachos in the evening as well! Andy and his team went above and beyond our expectations and really made our day special! Thank you so much!

WOW. Is all I can say about the service and food. From the start of enquiring all the way to the day of our wedding Andy, Debbie and team were there every step of the way. Nothing was too much for them and our guests are still saying how amazing the food was. We researched a lot into catering especially as we knew that Paella and tapas was the one thing we desperately wanted and so glad we booked the BEST in the business. Thank you so much Andy, Debbie and team you made our day perfect.

Andy and his team did a great job at our wedding. They were friendly and professional from the our initial enquiries right through to the end of the day. The paella was delicious and a number of people came up to say how good the food was. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them.
