We are pleased to have him as a Personal Chef.

Di & Team, I cannot thank you enough for your help with my birthday party last night. Your service from the first phone call was excellent and the dinner last night prepared Chef Ben and supported Wait Person Daniel was outstanding. The meal surpassed our expectation, delivering beyond-restaurant quality in every course. We loved having the meals explained to us, and Chef Ben was a pleasure to have in our home. We will be recommending At Your Table to everyone we know

The experience was something to write home about! Chef Ben and waitress Kristin were absolutely fabulous. And the food……. where do I start? It was amazing! So delicious, we wanted more! I did not have to lift a finger, it was all taken care of. Even my kitchen was left spotless. Highly highly recommended.

Fantastic night. Ben was helpful with all requests made during our engagement night, and allowed us to ensure the proposal was a complete surprise.
He was also able to be contacted prior to the evening for certain requests.
Could not fault the night!
And the food was better than a 5 star restaurant. And we’ve been to a few!!

Ben Munro and his team were so easy to work with nothing was too much trouble.

The food was excellent and the service was quite good. We hosted a wine dinner with a different wine served with each course – so the staff had a lot to manage and generally coped quite well. Probably the only down side was the way they left when it came time for them to finish for the evening. I would have liked to see them do a last scoot around to clear away empty glasses and refill water jugs – stuff like that. The cleaning also fell way short – they didn’t clean the laundry (drink service area) at all – leaving empty cans and crap all over the floor. Unfortunately, that left us with a heck of a clean-up, which kind of tainted what was an otherwise lovely evening. So, congratulations to the team on a job mostly well done – they started strong but just needed to finish strong too.

Ben – what a pleasant young man. Very tidy and very smart – well organised and knew his stuff. Not a thing for us to do all evening and even all the washing up was done. He’s a lovely aimable guy with a sense if humour and a great knowledge of cooking. He helped plan the menu and, as requested, brought us an up to the minute choice of canapés but with the 1970’s ‘twist’ that we had asked for. Wouldn’t hesitate asking ‘At Your Table’ to cater for us again and, if we were lucky enough to get Ben aswell, we’d be over the moon. Thank you so much.
