"My continuous travels across the globe have allowed me to master the culinary techniques and basis of multiple cultures.

Chef was professional and called to make sure we were happy with our menu and asked if there was a special occasion. Everything was personalized to our needs. The food was phenomenal and we were so pleased with our private dinner in our Airbnb. The best way to end our trip. Chef Raul is one of a kind!

Raul made a special birthday dinner for me and 4 of my friends. He was very easy to work with, accommodating, communicative, and an exceptional cook. I’d definitely recommend this experience!

Chef Raul was absolutely amazing. From the beginning with the first initial call to discuss the menu I knew this was going to be a great experience. He educated us on the cuisine, the culture and he's very personable and on point. Everything was delicious, authentic and fresh. He even had a cake for my fiance which was delicious too. I highly recommend. Well worth the money, high quality food and wonderful experience. Thanks chef.

We loved Chef Raul! Everything about this experience was amazing! Chef Raul is very knowledgeable, friendly and fun! He cooked and plated everything so beautifully. We had salad, tomahawk, t-bone and lobster. All so flavorful and juicy! He went above and beyond too. He wiped down the dining table, set the table and arranged some things around to make the table look pretty. He poured our champagne and water before our glasses were empty. He cleaned up the kitchen better than it was upon his arrival. Chef Raul is also super professional. We felt like we were at a 5 star, fine dining restaurant. He definitely made the birthday occasion one to remember! I highly recommend Chef Raul. I will definitely book him again whenever I come back to Cancun.

The price turned out to be more than what was first paid for. Once the chef showed up we were told that alcohol and grocery were not included in the price that airbnb charged. It would have been nice to know this from the start of the booking. Had to have the dinner twice to go to an bank to pay for additional cost. Food and service were good but having to now double of what was initially charged was a bummer.
