This is what my clients have talked about my work:

Private Chef Playa del Carmen

Ambika Kumar Doran

9 of us rented a house near Playa del Carmen the last week of December and arranged for Alex to cook for us each of the 7 night we were there. This made what would have been a very good vacation into a great one. All families in attendance come from major US cities with numerous award winning, and even Michelin starred, restaurants - so we have a pretty good benchmark for what is a quality meal. Each of Alex's seven dinners was equal to a fine dining experience but served at our own table...

Alex cooked for a group of 8 while we were renting a house in Playa del Carmen and I can't say enough great things about his services. From the initial menu selection to the presentation of meals, Alex was responsive and always gave 5 star service. Alex, and Nancy his assistant, are also so nice and personable, they even offered to pick up groceries for us if we needed anything throughout the weekend and gave us their salsa recipe. I highly recommend their services, you will not be disappointed!
