What information should I have available when contacting you?

The more details you have regarding your event, the better. At a minimum, we will need your contact information and the date, time, location and size of your event. We can then focus on your menu and catering service requirements.

An estimate of the number of guests you plan to invite and the parameters of your budget are particularly important. Keep in mind that the time of day influences the amount of food necessary, and consequently the cost of your catering.

You can provide all these information using our online contact form or give us a call at (632) 374-5100 or (632) 376-6673.



Do you accept pencil bookings?

Sorry, we do not. A booking fee is required for us to block off the date. All dates are booked on a first come, first served basis.



When should I confirm event details?

We ask our customers to confirm their details two weeks prior to their event. The details we require include the number of guests, menu selections, and time of serving.



How many people do you cater for?

Most of our packages are designed for events with a minimum of 100 guests. We do, however, have packages for small groups. Any menu can be tailored to suit your requirements.




Do I need to sign a contract?

We ask that you sign a contract and place a deposit so that we can block off the date for you.




Can I change my order once it is placed?

We are usually able to accommodate changes (e.g., menu, headcount) that are made at least seven (7) business days before the event. Please let us know when scheduling your event if you anticipate making changes as the date nears. Note that we consider all orders final three (3) business days before the scheduled event date and cannot commit to making any changes after this time.




Your base pricing is above my budget. Can you offer me a customized package?

Yes. It will be best for us to sit down and discuss your requirements so we can work around your budget.



Do you offer free food tasting prior to booking?

Yes. With adequate advance notice we can arrange for you to taste items before you decide to order.



Do I have to meet you in person to make my catering arrangements?

Most of the arrangements can be made on the phone or by email, if you prefer. We welcome meetings as it gives you the opportunity to discuss your requirements in detail. An appointment at the event venue can also be very useful in helping to plan the logistics and familiarizing us with the space available. Please note that meetings outside of our office have to be scheduled at least three days prior.



Do you provide decorating services?

We provide decorative items such as centerpieces and floral arrangements.




Other Services

Are tables and chairs included in your catering services?

Yes.




Can you provide liquor/bar services for my event?

Yes. We can supply you any type of beverage services for your event. Whether it's just beer and wine or a full liquor bar, our complete bar services will suit your needs.




Do you make wedding cakes?

No. However, we work with several reputable cake artisans and will gladly refer you to one.




Fees & Payments

Can you provide me with a written quote or bill in advance?

We can provide you a written itemized proposal based on your inquiry. This can be sent via email.




Do you require a deposit?

Yes. The deposit books the date for your event and locks in quoted pricing.




How early do I need to contact you prior to my event?

We usually require at least two (2) weeks' notice for orders. During particularly busy seasons, more lead time is required. We always recommend booking a date as soon as your event is confirmed. There is no such thing as "too early" for us.

In the case of an unanticipated event, we try our best to respond quickly. Call us and we will accommodate you if possible.




Can you adjust to food allergies and other dietary restrictions?

Yes. Please provide specific details of your needs so that we can address them properly.




Can you create custom menus?

Yes. We will be happy to work with you in creating a menu that perfectly fits the needs of your event. Please note that we require several weeks of advance notice for custom menus. Contact us as soon as possible if you have special catering needs.





Do you offer vegetarian entrees?

Yes. We have a variety of delicious vegetarian options that can be built into your catering package on request.




Where do you cater?

We mainly serve Metro Manila clients, but have had the distinct pleasure of catering for events in Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, and even Ilocos Norte.

How do I decide on a menu for my event?

Our service packages are a good starting point, since these provide samplers of our food and drink offerings. Once you've examined the samplers, please contact us by telephone, email, or our online contact form to discuss the full range of options. Let us address any questions you may have and advise you on your specific catering needs.




Do you have a corkage fee?

We do not charge corkage unless the items will require additional manpower complement.
