Awesome food and service
Excellent food and very hospitable staff! Took hubby for lunch today for his first visit… he said definitely a 5 out of 5 stars! Will be back with the rest of the family for sure.


Manny cooked lunch for a small group for my birthday in February.
The food and presentation was first class and Manny was prompt, obliging and very co-operative with a couple of variations of the menu due to allergies. I would recommend Manny to anyone planning to have an in-house chef to cater for a special occasion. Jane


Very friendly staff


Amazing chef and service
Authentic genuine person. Great service. Great food. Everyone at the birthday party enjoyed the food. Not overpriced! Cant recommend enough.


Do not hesitate - Manny is your man/caterer
OMG am I allowed to give him 10 stars? If you need someone to cater - don't hesitate. The food is amazing, plentiful and reasonably priced. The service is friendly and supportive - and they didn't mind my puppy hanging around.....but I did notice that hand hygiene was always carried out after the attention. Being a nurse working through Covid, this was very important to me. Manny and his workers go that one extra step and ensure your night is perfect - nothing is a problem, the clean up is sparkling and he is unfailing honest. We were overwhelmed with prawns because their purchase price was less than he quoted us for - so he bought extra for us. Thank you Manny, my 60th was absolutely perfect. One suggestion - order the dessert tasting spread....OMG OMG OMG


Delicious! Affordable! Professional! Amazing!!!!
Manny is such a delight to have cook in your home. He’s travelled to us (we’re not exactly close by) three times now... twice for a small celebratory dinner party and another for a larger group dinner party. Each time he has been reliable, professional, friendly and his food is out of this world. He leaves the kitchen cleaner than when he arrived and his attention to detail is superb! We’re already talking about booking again with him in 2021! Next time we’re on the GC, we’re gonna pop in and taste his street food too! 100% recommend experiencing just once because, like us, it won’t be the last!


Absolute Perfection
Chef Manny was our Private Chef for a small family dinner party 7th November 2020 & we chose his 7 Course Degustation Menu.

It was some of the finest food we’ve ever experienced in 30 years of fine dining together ~ & all in the comfort of our own home!
His assistant, the beautiful ‘Tiana’ was efficient, kind & polite through service too.
During prep Manny heard my hubby looking for the back of my diamond earring I’d dropped ?? & without hesitation he kindly left the kitchen to help search under the lounge chairs & floors. Such a sweetheart!

He interacted so well with our family, announced courses, checked several times if we were happy & upon invitation sat with us for a drink after dessert, sharing some of his career highlights & interacting like he was family, yet also conducted himself as such a professional.

The kitchen was left spotless then he bid us farewell.

I highly recommend Chef Manny & we’ll be repeat customers for many years to come.
Thank you Chef!


Elegant and Affordable.
Wowza! Manny was terrific what a fantastic evening he created for our wedding dinner so much that we hope we can have him cater for us every anniversary. Highly reccomend such an amazing meal.


Attended a private lunch today and was treated to a gourmet meal the blew my mind and service that blew me away. Chef Manny was cordial and humble and each guest was treated with care and professional courtesy. I was most impressed with his gentle and humble manner. Each course was absolutely perfect and not a single guest was disappointed with their individual choice.
If you are considering a private party at home, do yourself and your guests a favour and have your meals cooked and served by Chef Manny!!! ????????????


Just amazing!
I just had Manny come over to cater for my friends and I and he is just amazing. Food was divine and just beautiful. I absolutely recommend you have him come to you and cook you the most amazing food. Communication between himself and me was fantastic, just a friendly genuine great guy. I will definitely have him do another lunch or dinner again.



Professional, Creative & Passionate chef!
Chef Manny was amazing right from the initial phone conversation! I had organised a family dinner and wanted to surprise them with something special and wow Chef Manny did not disappoint! The food was absolutely incredible, I still dream about it! I was so indecisive about the dishes I wanted for the night, but Chef Manny creates the most perfect menu for us all. Thank you for a magnificent night Chef, you will now be our go-to for family gatherings.



Amazing Chef, Delicious Food, First Class Experience
We hired Chef Manny for a birthday dinner, and we were not disappointed!
Manny went above and beyond to ensure our experience was a special one.
The food was fresh and very delicious! The overall experience was absolutely amazing!


We love Manny
We have recently moved to a whole new level of dining at our retirement resort through the good fortune of having Manny cooking for us. The food is fabulous and the man himself a star! For a chef of his obvious standing in the culinary world to also be able to supply very reasonably priced meals for us on a weekly basis is nothing short of amazing. Thank you Manny. CJ


Amazing!! You have to try Chef Manny’s services!
We have used Manny as a private chef for our family at least 10 times. His outstanding food is a perfect reflection of his skill and passion. He is always professional and a pleasure to have in our home. He always goes above and beyond to impress! I have recommended his high quality services to many friends and family and will continue to use him. Thank you Chef Manny!


Manny’s food is seriously tasteful!!
From the minute I picked up the phone until the end of the conversation manny went above and beyond From times to what to cook we organised a private dinner I couldn’t be happier with the service we received the taste and quality of the food and the overall experience , will happily recommend him and can’t wait to do it again! 5 stars from us thanks manny was so nice to meet you


From the initial phone call through to the final dessert, my experience with Chef Manny from Manny's Catering was the most memorable experience of all time!
Chef Manny's thoughtfulness, patience and guidance in helping me to choose the right menu for the occasion, made me feel at ease right from the start.
He introduced me to a whole new world of tastes and flavours throughout the entire "Degustation" menu (many for the very first time), with each and every personal masterpiece that was presented to the table, showcasing his amazing talent and passionate commitment to ensuring I had an exceptional dining experience.
Chef Manny's passion, courtesy, professionalism, food artistry, exquisite presentation, creative flair and his extraordinary knowledge of food pairing was exemplary and made me appreciate how lucky I was to be in the company of a real Artisan. I now understand what great food is.
It was an absolute honour and pleasure to have Chef Manny cater for the evening. I have no hesitation in highly recommending him as the ultimate choice as your next Private Chef and am 100% confident that he will gain considerable and widespread respect, applause and admiration from his peers and customers, alike.

Thank You, Chef!


Beautiful and sophisticated
Our family have used him a number of times and Last night my husband and I had a couple of friends over and we did the 7 course degustation Menu (which he generously added two extra dishes and made it 9 course)
Every dish was made with love and elegance. It was super delicious and our friends were very impressed! It was so easy having him come to us, we could enjoy our night without having to worry about a thing.
Manny is very professional and you can tell he loves what he does.
We will definitely use him again and I would highly recommend.


Fantastic food, service, affordable and professional. I can highly recommended!!
Manny and his staff were amazing. The food was so delicious and the service was very professional. I can highly recommend Manny for any catering job. He is so accomodating and professional. Thank you very much, Manny


Amazing chef, amazing service
We organised a Xmas in July party for our residents (retirement village) and Mannys choice of menu appealed and price was excellent. From booking to the evening nothing was too much trouble and he made it all so easy. The meals were well presented and very tasty. Thank you Manny you made the night a great success, we will definitely be using your services again and referring you to others. Many thanks Karen Brown


GREAT FOOD, excellent service, friendly staff. What more do you want
Chef Manny has catered for my daughters wedding, as well as other functions I have attended. His food is always delicious, fresh and well presented. Nothing is too much trouble for him to cater for special diets etc. I would not hesitate to recommend Chef Manny to anyone seeking a professional catering service.
His venue of Gainsborough Greens Golf Club is a beautiful setting for any function and the deck area is a great place to sit and relax looking over the lake and the course, enjoy a drink and something to eat. Even if you are looking to enjoy a cup of coffee with friends, a birthday party or a wedding you won't be disappointed.
