Good morning Roberto and Arianna,

Back to work this morning and the first thing on my to-do list is to drop you a line to say a massive thank you.

The food you prepared for Friday’s meal and Sunday’s BBQ was exquisite and far exceeded my expectation,  it was the topic of conversation many times!


I promised I would pass on thanks and comments from the girls who all said what a wonderful couple you are (and I totally agree, how you managed to put up with us rowdy lot I’ve no idea).   They also commented on how professional and organised you were;  everything arrived at the table hot, delicious and on time. 


You were an integral part in making the celebration very special and I look forward to meeting you again the next time


With best wishes

Gemma and Paul Grao Wedding

We are finally back home after the most amazing wedding and a big part of that was due to the unbelievable and memorable food you served. 
we are still getting messages from guests about how beautiful the food was from the canapés to the deserts. Not one part was at fault and that was all due to your team.
Thank you all and when we're next over we hope you can cook for us again
love Gemma & Paul xx

Ciara Wedding

Another important part of the day for us was the food and drinks. We wanted to have a relaxed barbeque meal with a bar serving cocktails. We came across Roberto and Arianna from Chef Affairs, who are an Italian couple and their traditional Italian cooking comes through in all of their amazing food. We had canapés, starters and a spectacular barbeque of different meats and fish and then some gorgeous desserts.

Taste of Portugal menu

I must mention that Roberto and Arianna are wonderfully professional individuals that make you feel as though you are one of the family, they shared with us the history of the dishes, where the ingredients came from, so it was more than (just a meal) it was an AMAZING experience. When we come back...and we will, we will be sure to call you again...as everyone should have this great time. All the best from Canada.

Dear Roberto, Just a quick email to thank you for your wonderful meals last week for all of us at Quinta Almara. We all had such an enjoyable holiday, and your cooking played a big part in us enjoying ourselves as much as it did. I have also contacted Premier Villas and thanked them for recommending you, as well as praising your cooking. Assuming we return to the Algarve before too long, we would very much like to book you again, assuming you do not get too booked up.

Many thanks again and best wishes,

James Holder
