Ian's Recent Reviews

Ian Woodcock
Amazing service and the best meal I've eaten in years - still haunted by the food! The whole family was raving. I wasn't sure what I was going to do for my birthday, with family and toddlers visiting, and this was the perfect answer. Everyone had an amazing time, and Ian and his delightful waiter weren't put off by a curious dog and toddler running around!

We had a thoroughly wonderful evening. The food was delicious, and Ian was a delight to have at our home. He was friendly and very easy going. Ian prepared a great meal, and left our kitchen spotless at the end of the night. Having a recent newborn, eating in was a great option to celebrate my husbands 40th, we were able to relax and it all felt very special. Would not hesitate to recommend Ian to our friends. Thank you for a fantastic evening.

Ian Woodcock
Ian was a consummate professional from the start. He emailed and phoned me prior to the dinner to ensure everything was as I wanted it. Ian was punctual and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for him, which certainly took all the pressure off me. This was the first of my parties that I have actually been able to relax and enjoy. He presented us with a fabulous dinner and the guests are still raving about it. He came with all the equipment he required, and left the kitchen in an amazingly clean state. I would highly recommend Ian Woodcock for your next dinner party. Could not fault him. Thanks so much Ian. Kind regards - Roslyn Purcell

He also became the Head Chef at the 3-Michelin star Le Bel Ombra in 1996 before taking the reins at the 3-Michelin star La Place as the Head Chef a couple of years later.

Frederick Marechal
Wow, what a night! Chef Frederick was absolutely amazing. Really pleasant to have in our home and the food was exceptional. Can't wait to do it again.

Hayley Bowen (QLD)

Frederick Marechal
The food couldn’t be faulted.

Jacquelyn (QLD)

Frederick Marechal
We had a chef and a waiter, Frederick and Rudy. However, Rudy was not just any waiter, he was definitely a fully fledged maitre d' and ran the evening with such finesse and smoothness that we felt we were in a 5 star restaurant. Frederick created such fine food it was absolute heaven to indulge and was 5 star as well! My husband was exceedingly grateful that Frederick was aware that he was in somebody's home and not on TV! They arrived on time, went about their business in a very professional manner, played the evening by ear and gave us the ultimate fine dining experience! The two of them also new each other's nuances and worked together like a well oiled machine. Both deserve such accolades and we received nothing but compliments about the experience. We'll done guys

The offered menus were all excellent and our selected menu surpassed expectations. We had a celebration dinner with a group of 14 and made adjustments to the menu that were readily agreed to and implemented by the team. The night went smoothly and we all just sat and enjoyed the meal and conversation without having to leave the table or worry about timing or serving drinks. A wonderful and special night with friends all made possible by Tanja and her team

Grant Titman (QLD)

Tanja Nixdorf
Was a very good experience and having done "at your table" 3 times now, Tanja was the best chef so far. Her server was also much better then the last two servers I have had.

Marcus (QLD)

Tanja Nixdorf
We were so happy with our evening, poor Tanja there were a few kitchen malfunctions, due to it being very new, and one of my pots not being compatible with the induction (even though it was sold as induction) anyway I digress....Tanja somehow overcame the difficulties and served us a beautiful meal, our guests were so impressed. Alex and Levi, the waiters that came with Tanja were a delight and nothing was too much trouble. Five stars all the way from us.

Darrin Tunstall
We had organised Darrin for a surprise 60th Birthday dinner for my husband when a snap lockdown at 4.00pm on the day meant he couldn't come!! I suggested that if all the prep had been done would I be able to do the actual cooking? We discussed it and decided it was within my capabilities so Darrin moved heaven and earth (and ultimately his brother) to get the food to us before the lockdown commenced at 4.00pm. It had to come 2 hours away from Darrin as we were in an airbnb. The instructions were thorough and the food was simply spectacular - made me look and feel like a real chef! The dinner guests were our children and their partners and it was unanimously agreed that we will do this again with Darrin when this wretched Covid has gone.

Martyn Ridings
Chef Martyn went above and beyond to meet us at our remote house for my partners 30th. His food was amazing and he was able to give us insight in his dishes which added to the experience.

Yannik Wouts (QLD)

Thomas Damm
Thomas Damm is a true professional, masterful chef and great company. His 5 course tasting menu was perfect. We did a chef's table style dinner where Thomas walked us through the different dishes and his inspiration for them. He even left the kitchen cleaner than he found it at the end of the night. Highly recommended.

Tim (VIC)

Francois Morabito
A birthday lunch to remember. My husband, myself and our guests thoroughly enjoyed our lunch experience with Francois and Camille for his 50th birthday. Francois was exceptional in his professionalism, his menu and the meal on the day was loved by all. I can’t fault the process or the outcome and am very happy. I sat back on the day and relaxed. Five star for sure.

Martyn catered an incredible gourmet seafood lunch for my husbands birthday. He also catered perfectly to our group of 7 children and left us to relax and enjoy our day.
