What our customers are saying:

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the catering at our party (Sat 15th Nov).
Raphael – you are truly talented – the food was absolutely beautiful. All our guests have commented on how great it was.
Sue – thank you for accommodating us and making the planning so effortless.
We had a really fun night and in part that was because you guys made it so easy and relaxed for us.
Thanks again.


Encore bravo et merci pour ton excellent travail vendredi dernier !  succulent, surprenant, parfaitement execute, equilibre, digeste.  Ce n’est pas pour rien que j’ai evoque le grand Alain Chapel en fin de repas… J’espere que tu lanceras bientot une serie de plats a emporter, en plus de ton service traiteur personnalise, que nous utiliserons bientot a nouveau.  C’est certain qu’un “gourmet takeaway” realise par toi sera un succes, vu la qualite de ce que tu prepares. Meilleurs voeux de succes pour ton business et a bientot.

Bien cordialement,
Georges E. R. GRAU, M.D.

Thank you so much for the wonderful dinner on Saturday- our family was so impressed and truly delighted with the food. Everyone has told us that it was absolutely delicious and better than many restaurant meals they’ve had. My father in law, the guest of honour, really enjoyed the food and was very impressed with Raphael’s service and expertise. Our expectations were exceeded in terms of the quality and quantity of food, not to mention the professionalism and friendliness that Raphael brought to the whole experience. We will definitely be doing this again, looking forward to trying some of the other items on the menu in the near future,

“A big thank you to Raphael who catered for our daughter’s 21st birthday celebration in our home. From Raphael’s visit before the event, we knew we had made a great decision in using French Fare Catering. Raphael took the time to not only go through the menu but to get a feel for the mood we wanted to create with our French-themed occasion and to answer any questions we had over timing and organisation. He made us feel so confident and assured in his ability that we could just relax and know we were in capable and professional hands. His lovely personality and fantastic cooking made for a great event, with our guests very impressed with the fine cuisine. It really made our night so special.”

“Thank you so so much Raphael for the wonderful catering you did for our wedding! Everything was perfect: the food, the waiters, the service, the cleaning of the kitchen, we were so happy, and everyone kept raving about how nice the food and you and the guys were, so thank you!”

“French Fare catering provided us with an excellent cocktail service for the Opening Night of our Alliance Française French Film Festival. All guests where amazed by canapés and nibbles that gave to the party a delicious French touch. Many thanks Raphaël!”

“We were thrilled with the way that everything went on saturday. The food was beautiful, and the feedback from all the guests in regards to taste and variety of the canapes was extremely positive. The service was perfect. I don’t think anyone was waiting for food or drinks, and everyone seemed extremely happy. You guys helped to make the night exactly what we wanted, and we are very appreciative of that.

“We would like to thank you enormously for the excellent food and service provided for Lilly-Bee’s Birthday. We highly appreciated all your efforts and in particular, the last minute ‘Buzzy Bee Cake’. All our guests were amazed; most of them asked your details for their own coming events and some even told that “it was the best catering ever”! We are grateful to your team to render Lilly-Bee’s 1st Birthday so memorable and certainly are looking forward to collaborating again soon.”
All the best.

“Just a note to say thanks so much for your efforts last night!
Our guests were all raving about your food as were we! You really did surpass expectations. The food was absolutely delicious, (everyone was in love with your scallop, truffle oil morsel….wow!!!), you were very efficient and great to deal with and you really helped make the party a great night. Thanks so much. ”

“It was a relatively easy decision to have our wedding at home, but the implications of then having the reception for 30 people at the same location only became apparent as we became aware of all the issues surrounding the food, the drinks, the furniture…!

We explored various caterers and decided on Raphael after seeing his web page and his appetizing menus. During the planning stage Raphael kindly made the time (in a very busy schedule) to come to our house (with a very modest kitchen) and patiently explained the menu choices (and his suggestions), staffing requirements and the issues regarding furniture, crockery and cutlery. He took the time to chat with us to grasp what the tone of the day would be in order to best cater for it and adapt to it.

We simply told Raphael the number of people, and the menu we wanted (including special requirements), and explained that we wanted a fairly informal wedding and he organised everything.

We could not have been happier! The hiring of equipment was easy and everything was delivered to our door ahead of time to allow for ample preparations. The waiters, chosen by Raphael, were kind, helpful and highly professional. As requested, Raphael presented the most exquisite dishes, from canapés to desserts, with the finest and freshest ingredients, and described each dish for our guests. From the first bite, people were hooked and could not believe such courses could come from our kitchen which was left immaculate at the end of the evening. Everyone was thoroughly impressed with Raphael and asked for his references!

Without hesitation, we would warmly recommend Raphael to anyone interested in fine French food and for the best, personalized, service we could have dreamed of. He captured what we wanted perfectly and our wedding would not have been so successful without him and his expertise.

Merci beaucoup pour tout ton savoir-faire, ta gentillesse et pour cette nourriture divine!
A très bientôt, ”
