Corporate Events Testimonials

"We had Paella Amor cater for our company Christmas party and they were fantastic! It was easy to organise and made the whole evening very pleasant. Dave and Norman looked after us all so well and the team loved watching Dave cook their dinner while Norman made sure we all had a drink and food. Everyone loved the food and Dave catered very well for those with special diet requirements! It was a far better experience than going to a restaurant where we all stuffed into a small loud venue unable to talk to each other! The team could mix and talk and as owners/managers we were able to speak to all our team while relaxing in Dave and Norman's capable hands! Thanks, guys...we will be having you cater for our next event." – Cynergex Group 

"Paella Amor was perfect for the corporate event I organized for 75 people in Sydney CBD. The organization leading up to the event was easy: they were quick to respond and happy to help with my requests and they complied professionally with the managing agent of our complex. In the evening, the set-up of the food stations and bar was quick and professional. The quality of the food was excellent - many people went back for second helpings. And the waiting and bar staff were attentive and unobtrusive. Finally, the clearaway happened very quickly and easily without me really being aware. I would happily recommend them and use the services of Paella Amor again." – Heather Jarvis

“We recently hired Paella Amor to cater for a work event and it was the best decision we made! The appetisers were fantastic but the paella was an absolute knockout! It was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Thank you so much!” – Tess Mailman

“These guys are brilliant - incredibly professional whilst delivering the most delicious food. My guests all raved about the paella and many would choose this as an option for their next event. The staff are friendly, and efficient and go beyond what is necessary. The prices are also very competitive. I couldn't compliment them enough." – Brooke Cocks

Client Testimonials from Elegant Wedding Receptions

We had Paella Amor at our engagement party. I couldn't have been more pleased with the experience overall. The team was so caring and professional, providing us with a beautiful meal and the service was beyond attentive! Thank you so much for the best time and food. Special thanks to Michael, Gang and Marie. Tim your people are so special! “ – Vivian Aun

“Paella Amor catered our engagement and were absolutely wonderful from start to finish. So professional, helpful and friendly to us and all our guests. The waiter Tony went above and beyond and all our guests raved about how funny he was. All our guests loved the paella. We highly recommend Paella Amor.” – Sam

The Paella Amor team did an amazing job at our recent engagement party! They had a 'no stress' attitude - when they arrived there were some logistical issues with the venue and they took it all in their stride without creating any fuss. They were very professional and the paella was absolutely delicious! Everyone commented on how good it tasted. They even worked the room, serving drinks and making sure everyone was happy. They kept us well informed of their progress throughout the night. We would definitely use this team again. Looking forward to our next event. Thank you so much!” – Claire Pelham 

Private Parties Client Testimonials

“We had a wonderful experience with Paella Amor for my daughter's 18th birthday. The food was absolutely delicious (chicken and chorizo paella, charcuterie platter and churros). Marie and Tali were delightful, professional and patient. They made hosting a party very easy and I would highly recommend.” – Lisa Trueman

“Thank you for your excellent service at my party on Saturday. The food was great! The portions were a really good size and no one went hungry. I received lots of compliments on the paella and what a cool idea it is for a party.

I want to make special mention of your waiter Shane. He was a champion. People arrived all at once and I was completely overwhelmed. He just went from server to event manager and worked so hard throughout the night to make sure my party was a success. At the same time, he was so attentive to the fact that I should be celebrating and not working. I was so grateful and told him so.” – Penny V

“We wanted an easy and delicious catering option for our engagement party and Paella Amor delivered. Tim and the team were so lovely and easy to deal with in the lead-up. On the night they showed up before our guests so they weren't in the way, set themselves up and got cooking. The paella was so delicious and our guests raved about it. I loved that we were able to have multiple paella options and that they included a lovely waiter to hand the food out to our guests.

Delicious food, stress-free and smooth process and a lovely team... I couldn’t recommend Paella Amor enough! (we’ve already booked them in for our next event).” – Alex Briggs 

“We had Paella Amor cater for a 21st birthday with 100+ people. From the start, Tim was terrific to deal with being super helpful and friendly. On the night James arrived ahead of time and set up perfectly without any required assistance. The food was superb with plenty available to feed a hungry crowd. Clean-up was done in the same professional manner. Great business and very happen to recommend.” – Andrew Williamson

We had a great night - thank you! Probably the chillest night we’ve had in a while but that didn’t stop people. Kim and Victor were excellent and added to the lovely feeling of the night. The teenagers (daughter and friends) who were assigned the drink stand really liked working with them as well! My husband, whose Birthday it was, loved the night, and we had so many compliments on the food, so thank you again!” – Katharine Elkan

“Paella Amor prepared delicious paella for our son's 21st. In the office, Alli was attentive and understanding. David and Shane were a wonderful positive energy at the party. David took incredible care with the cooking of the paella and Shane was an incredibly helpful waiter who helped the party run smoothly. We would definitely use them again.” – Gabrille McKinnon

“I reiterate all the great comments others have made about Paella Amor. We had a fantastic experience with this company that catered for my husband's 50th birthday at our home for 90 people. They were lovely to deal with from the first contact - communicative and professional yet warm and also very flexible when I wanted to make some changes a few days before the event.

The setup and pack down of the equipment on the day was super efficient and unobtrusive. The staff were discreet yet engaging and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

Best of all the food was wonderful – we had two different paellas and three tapas dishes and our guests all raved very positively about the meal. Being able to see the paella cooking in the big pans added a fun dimension to the party. The leftovers were nicely packaged up and put in our fridge, and very much appreciated the next day.

The catering was as delicious as it was hassle-free and so easy for me as the host that I could focus on our guests and enjoy myself too. I would happily recommend Paella Amor for any kind of event or party.” – Bridget O'Brien

“Paella Amor catered my friend's 50th and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They arrived on time, set up, cooked and served, all without imposing on the party. They worked with our timing and were so accommodating and friendly. The paella was fabulous and any leftovers were packaged up and placed in a fridge for us to collect later. From initial booking to coordinating the evening and finally the food, they couldn't have made the process easier.” – Tammy White

“I chose Paella Amore for my 50th based on reviews and am so glad I did. Everything was superb. We had the seafood (which was good) and the chicken and chorizo (which was outstanding). The service could not have been better with the team going over and above to make the night a success. Highly recommended.” – Scott Jamieson

“I have been meaning to write this review for a long time and have been just reminded when a friend asked for a recommendation! if you want an experience to exceed your expectations then this is the company for you! I didn’t know what I was signing up for but what I got was not only the most delicious food, not only the best customer service, not only amazing on-the-ground staff, chefs and waiters, not only consideration by waiting for speeches to be over before packing up but and experience which had people talking about this for weeks afterwards! I cannot recommend this company enough. Thank you to all involved. This was for a 60th birthday party for about 100 people.” – Jos Dudley

Uncompromising Standards

Exquisite Culinary Craftsmanship

The Paella Amor team were great. Tim was very responsive and helpful with the booking, while our paella maestro and chef Marie were lovely. The paellas and salads were brilliant. All our guests commented on how good the food was. There was none left over at the end of the night which is a testament to how much everyone enjoyed it. – Michael Parker

From the moment I first emailed Alli, the process was absolutely seamless. Pricing was super transparent and good value (unlike some competitors). Jorno and Shane were fantastic, going above and beyond to interact with our guests and even serving drinks. I'm not a massive mushroom fan, but I've had about 5 servings of the paella, it was that good. I'm hoping some of our guests use these guys in the future so I can have more of the paella :) – Alex 

Paella Amor were amazing for our Baby-Q! We wanted something delicious for all our guests to enjoy and watch being prepared, Jorno and Shane well and truly delivered! I have had so many guests asking for their details since the day and will most definitely be using them again in the future. – Lauren Charlwood

“Prompt efficient friendly service. Amazing smells while cooking and great theatre. Arrived on time cooked served and cleaned all in 39deg temperature. The whole process from booking to cooking was a great pleasure, Ali very helpful and the cooks were happy to oblige. Highly recommend, made my evening enjoyable and relaxed. 😀” – Jane Williams

"The guys from Paella Amor were brilliant from start to finish. Great communication and information provided prior to our event. Our event day went so smoothly with Rob and Michael who went over and beyond to serve our guests and even do some washing up. This is not to mention how YUMMY the Paella was. There were no leftovers in sight due to our guests having seconds and even thirds. Would be recommending this to others & having them again at our next party. Thank you all." – Jess Elliott

“Thank you so much for the amazing food. It was so seamless and 150 people were fed with ease. The staff were first class and a delight to have in our home. Our guests were blown away with the food and I loved that everything was left spotless. Thanks again!" – Clare Haslem

"Good food, lovely people, very accommodating, great value. Allie and Tim arrived to make paella for our 40-strong private party with a French chef and French waitress. How exotic! They did a superb job despite a battle with the weather. Cleaned up thoroughly. We had lots of food left over, I found later. They had put it all in containers in our fridge :)" – Paul Sheppard

Impeccable Service and Attention to Detail

“If it was possible to provide 6 stars, I would! These guys are absolutely exceptional in every way. Impeccable service, delicious food and really engaging with the guests. I cannot remember the last time I had such a great customer experience. Highly recommend, save your time & go straight to Paella Amor.” – Piers Van Hamburg

“Paella Amor catered for a party we had recently. The communication in the lead-up to the event was great. They arrived on time and the paella was incredible. Fresh and tasty. The staff were very friendly and professional and cleared everything away when they left. I would highly recommend this company.” – Philippa WILSON

“Paella amor were excellent. We had a party and had a large (1m) chicken and chorizo paella and a smaller (55cm) vegetarian paella. Both were delicious and all the guests loved it (many went back for seconds and thirds!). Marie and John were very friendly and professional. They arrived on time set up and packed up without any fuss. Would highly recommend to anyone.” – Sally Whenman

“It was a pleasure to have Paella Amor cater for our recent party. They were on time, professional, friendly and left the venue spotless. The grazing table was beautifully arranged with an array of delicious nibbles and the two paellas were perfect. Thank you, Tim and the team.” – Julie R

“A massive thank you to you and the team we had at our party last night. We are so completely stoked with how it all went. The staff were so professional and accommodating from the second they knocked on the door, all with huge smiles and a relaxed vibe all night. They did an incredible job and made the BEST paella, left the place spotless and were so awesome getting it all out to our guests and then collecting the rubbish. The wait staff even stayed on until 8 and helped collect glasses washed them and returned them to the bar for us. It was such a seamless operation and we had an amazing time not having to worry AT ALL about the catering. It was just amazing and we will be recommending paella amor to everyone!” – Vanessa Mercer

“Five gold stars from us. Michael worked the bar and the floor with such efficiency and style. Rob and Tali worked their magic with the paella in the cold and wet. Thankfully under the gazebo but it was a miserable night outside. The smell as people entered the hall was amazing. Everyone raved about the paella. They cleaned up without me even really knowing. I was impressed! Thank you!” – Peta Loyd

“Paella Amore team members, Shane and Dave, were just great. They were on time, professional, thoughtful, impeccably dressed and well-mannered.

Shane worked tirelessly all night, managing food and helping with many other things. I did not have to handle any small detail because I had Shane to handle. They both kept the place spotless! My guests had plenty of paella with a choice of two flavours. I would highly recommend this team!” – Margaret Tamone

“We and our guests were so impressed with Paella Amor and Boardwalk catering. The food was absolutely delicious. Norman and Yvonnick worked really hard. They were efficient and unobtrusive but always there to refresh and replenish snacks and drinks. Dave was fantastic- the paella - amazing. Our teenage helpers thought he was super funny. And we thought he was super professional. Thank you to all for helping us have a fantastic evening,” – Carolyn K
