Thank you to Elena's Paella for catering our engagement party.

Your team was so friendly to deal with from our initial enquiry, with making adjustments to the booking and through to the event.

The food was delicious and generous with guests saying it was THE BEST Paella they have tasted.

Futhermore the team went out of their way to help with tidying up as they went which made our next day clean much easier.

Ian had a really special day for his 70th birthday. Thank you for your part in it.

We had so many comments regarding your wonderful paella. Your whole presentation was professional, non-intrusive and friendly.

Personally, you made my day so much easier. Thank you so much for that also.

Finally, Elena, we felt your paella was the best we’ve had outside of Spain, and better than most there! Authentic but original and delicious.

Enjoy your trip to warm, sunny beautiful Spain.

Thank you all.

We could not recommend Elena's Paella highly enough. When organising and ourfamily function, all our enquires were promptly answered. On the night of the function Tim arrived on time and fully prepared a wonderful paella over the one and a half hours. We all found him easy to talk to and knowledgable about his craft. It was wonderful to have a paella so well prepared for us. Thank you Tim and well done!
