It was great! Chef Theodore was very professional and the food was delicious. Timing was perfect and chef Theodore had everything under control. He was also very thoughtful to separately cook the dish for my son who can’t eat spicy. Would definitely recommend u guys to my friends (in fact a few people have already asked after seeing my pics on IG). My favourite is the clam, lamb chop and definitely the dessert.

Theodore stayed down in the galley for the whole charter which was good as he was not seen by the guests, he arrived on time, had all meals prepared on the times requested by the guest to a good standard. He was well equipped with the cooking apparatus. The guests were impressed with the food quality and the presentation of the meals. the appetisers were delicious, the main lunch menu was very popular especially the salmon, also the chorizo risotto. each meal was well received as were the brownies to finish the day. Theodore was polite professional and hardworking and looked smart in the chef uniform, i would happy recommend him and use him again.
