Outside Charity Catering Event-Singelton Lancashire-Boathouseyouth Charity
Comments: Boathouse Youth Murder Mystery Fundraising Event – Singleton Village Hall 28th January 2017 Many Thanks to Tony, Marco and Team for their hard work, great service and tasty food that helped to contribute to a fantastic night which resulted in a successful fundraising event. From the outset they were most willing to help, offer advice and therefore provide a wonderful stress free event. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kwizeen Outside Catering for your event, we will certainly use them again.
Mr David Brennand
“The Silver Line organised an important media event at short notice and Kwizeen were quick to step in to save our day and cater for our guests, including our Founder, Esther Rantzen.
The quality and variety of the food and drink (including vegetarian options), and the preparation,
organisation and service of the event were impeccable, many guests commenting on how delicious and well presented the meals were.
From an organisers viewpoint, I gave Kwizeen access to our premises, they did their ‘magic’, and cleaned up afterwards. Highly recommended.”

Ruth’s Gathering October 2016- outside Catering Lytham St Anne’s
Dear Marco, Tony and Catalina,
Just to say how delighted we were with your exceptional service, and food, for my gathering last weekend.
It was above and beyond our expectations, for which we are very grateful. Your attention to detail and timing was impeccable.
Your team effort made the day/evening flow so well, and the little extras such as photos, and lights made it such a special day for me.
We had so many comments to say how wonderful your canapés, and pies were. My husband said it was the best pie he had ever tasted.
Tony’s advice and help with the bar enabled us to relax and circulate; his timing on the running of things meant we did not worry about anything.
So a massive thank you for catering to all our needs, and being part of such a special day. We couldn’t have had such a successful party (gathering!!!) without the three of you.
It was the best gathering I’ve ever been to.
Mrs Ruth Minton
Mr & Mrs Drinkwater – Outside Wedding Catering Poulton-Le-Fylde
Thank you so much to Marco and Tony for providing excellent catering for our wedding!
So professional and made the whole day run so smoothly.they even set up all the tables, provided linen and then took everything down the next day. Went above and beyond for us. So many compliments regarding the food as well.
Mrs Olivia Drinkwater
Mr and Mrs Horsfield Wedding at Marsh Milll Farm
Thanks so much for everything to you Marco and your fabulous team – you truly have been the best caterers we could have ever wished for! Nothing has been too much trouble and despite catering for 142 guests, you were always positive that you could provide the best food and service possible.
The day was everything we hoped it could be and more. Everyone I have spoken to has commented on how amazing the food was and also how perfect it was for the setting and the relaxed feel we wanted.
Your team of waiters & waitresses were very attentive and smiley which was lovely – your daughter was extremely professional and we felt confident with her in charge in the marquee on the day. We would highly recommend you to everyone and we will certainly be using you again in the future for parties and celebrations!
James Ridge’s 21st Birthday Party
Fantastic memories made! I would like to thank Kwizeen restaurant for helping to make a most memorable night for our Sons 21st party. The venue, food and service was fantastic and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is hosting a party. There was so much choice of canapés it made it difficult to decide our final selection.
Marco, Tony and Catalina were extremely happy to assist with all our requirements and all staff on the evening were helpful and polite. All our guests commented on the evening and told us what a fabulous evening they had had and that they had enjoyed the food immensely. Family and friends travelled from all over the country to help celebrate our sons 21st and graduation and I am so pleased that we chose Kwizeen to mark this landmark point in his life.
MR and MRS Ryan and Kirsty Newton – TIPI Marquee Wedding – Lancashire
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at Kwizeen for providing the food and bar for our wedding day. When we first met we set you the task of making sure our guest did not go hungry.
We made it even more challenging for you by having the wedding in a Tipi in a field with 170 day guest and even more in the evening. I am happy to say this was achieved and much more.
We have had so many complements about the amazing afternoon tea canopies and our main bbq dinner. You took on board all the small details to help us to create our perfect relaxed wedding day.
Mrs Kirsty Newton
50th Barbeque Party-Outside Catering Rams bottom Lancashire
Kwizeen did the bar and BBQ catering for my 50th Birthday in a marquee in Holcombe village, near Bury. We had just short of 200 guests and at around 7pm the heavens opened in a downpour on a biblical scale keeping this up for next few hours. Despite this, the food served and service were absolutely first rate.
Marco, Tony and their staff maintained good humour and professionalism throughout. It was a long day with much food and drink being consumed with nothing but compliments from all our guests.
I would certainly use Kwizeen again and would have no hesitation to recommend them. Great job guys !

21st Birthday Party-Outside Catering Preston
To Marco, Tony, Catalina and all the team at Kwizeen:
Thank you so much for making Lauren’s 21st one of the most memorable, your professionalism and superb skills for making not just us but all our guests feel special. Tony you were so observant filling up everyone’s glasses and observing all your team. We have had so many comments from our guests with one person saying the party will go down in history as his best because of your service and food and also ours. Everyone loved the canapes being brought around, then could not believe the best tasting fish and chips and wonderful homemade pie and chips (just perfect) and not even finishing at that with all the puddings. The whole night was wonderful from the minute our first guests arrived with the quirky cocktails and bar drinks being served promptly and topped up constantly. All the Kwizeen team looked immaculate and made all our guests feel special. The comments we received on the night and since and even on Facebook have all sung your praises.
Marco from our very first meeting we had you did say that you will make the evening special with your food and service and you, Tony, Catalina and the rest of your staff certainly delivered on every part. We could not believe that you even stayed as late as you did cleaning up after us to keep everything perfect when our party just kept on going. The first time we met Catalina we commented what a lovely, bubbly, very hard working and exceptional smart appearance she had so just perfect serving behind the bar and helping the rest of the staff.
The whole experience of using you for catering was exceptional with Marco chef managing the kitchen preparing the scrummy food, Tony managing the bar and keeping up with all our guests drink and food and Catalina front of house your team works perfectly. We would also like to thank the rest of your staff who waited on our guests all evening. It was lovely to have a party at home and be able to fully enjoy the whole experience without lifting a finger thanks to Kwizeen. It is hard to put the experience into just a few words, but Fantastic!
Lauren loved her 21st party and had a great night with thanks to Kwizeen!
Thanks once again.

Milestone Birthday Party at Home
Outside catering Lytham St Annes
To celebrate my 50th Birthday I wanted to have a party at home without the hassle of organising it and managing things on the night. What a relief it was to deal with Marco and Tony from Kwizeen who have a brilliant team around them. The food they prepared was superb but the real skill was the way they managed the evening and ensured everyone’s glass was full. A friend once said “If you’re going to have a party, have a party!” Well, Kwizeen certainly ensured everybody had a fabulous evening.
Thanks to Tony running the bar, Marco running the Kitchen and Catalina for front of house.

Lancashire and Middlesex County Cricket Match @Blackpool Cricket Ground
Just thought I would drop you a quick note to express my sincere thanks for the first class service you provided to Blackpool Cricket Club in catering for our corporate hospitality guests at the Lancashire vs Middlesex County Cricket match.
From our initial requirements meeting to the clean up operation you, Tony & the team were consummate professionals throughout and an absolute pleasure to do business with. You met all the challenges we threw at you which made my life a lot easier in hosting 240 guests.
The food quality, presentation and service received some excellent feedback from our guests including the Executive Committee of Lancashire County Cricket Club who are seasoned pros when it comes to corporate hospitality.
I’ve included an extract of a note from one of our guests below.
“Congratulations on what I thought was a fabulous day, not just for the quality of the Marquee hospitality, but for the Club as a whole. You arranged a splendid event.”
I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Dear Marco and Tony,
Just wanted to say thank you for helping to make my 50th party so special! I’ve had dozens of calls and texts today from friends saying how amazing the food was last night.
Your staff were professional and on the ball all night. You couldn’t have done any more!

Mr and Mrs Steven and Sophia McNally Wedding at Croxteth Hall, Liverpool
Steven and I would like to give you a massive thanks for all the hard work you did on our wedding day. The food was amazing and everybody commented on how it was the best food they had ever eaten at a wedding. The day went off without a hitch and that was because of your teams’ hard work. You did more than just the food on the day, you changed the venue around from the ceremony to the wedding breakfast and put out and dressed the wedding cake. Catalina was amazing at organise the team and getting everything on the tables to look perfect, from the cutlery to the centrepieces and the added extras we put on last minute. Everyone commented on how amazing the tables looked and that was because of her hard work in organising the team.
When we sat down for the wedding breakfast and the food came out, it was like watching a military operation the way the staff walked all in a perfect line with their White Jackets on and placed the food down at once. It is things like that that take it from a standard wedding service to knowing you have the best in the business. The food was presented on the plates beautifully and tasted amazing. Marco did a fantastic job of preparing the food and making sure it looked its best on the plates.
Tony and Becky made sure everyone’s glass was kept topped up, from the drinks after the ceremony, the wine on the tables and the Champagne for the toast. They worked the room making sure there was never a dry glass in the house.
Our day was made so special by the hard work and effort Kwizeen did from start to finish, from the first tasting to the night time buffet of Hogs. They went above and beyond what was expected of them, the food is not just their priority the whole day for the Bride and Groom is important to them. This is what makes them the best at what they do, no matter what you ask of them they will work as hard as they can to provide you with what you want. The food and drink is as important on a wedding day as it is one of the biggest parts and they truly know this which is why they are the best and no one else compares!!!

Christening Outside catering at Fylde Cricket Club, Poulton
Thank you to you & your team at Kwizeen for making our daughter’s christening such an enjoyable & stress-free day. The food was both ample and delightful. Friends and family all commented on the mini fish & chips, the Tikka Masala baskets and the delicious petit fours in particular. The fruit kebabs also went down a storm with our little nieces and nephews! The decorations looked great and your waiting-on staff were friendly and professional. I will be recommending Kwizeen to all our friends and family for future events.
Rob & I were particularly grateful to you for your help serving the fizz & christening cake – which was probably beyond your remit – but sincerely appreciated.
Thanks again & best wishes,

Private Dinner at Home for 50th Birthday Party
I would just like to thank you for the outstanding service you provided for my 50th birthday dinner party on the 27th March 2015 for twenty people.
The service provided by Tony and Catalina was exceptional.
All the courses were presented beautifully and tasted amazing, this was all down to your magic!
I cannot thank the team at Kwizeen enough, it was fantastic to have a stress free evening, I did not have lift a finger from laying the table right through to the washing up.
You made my birthday one to remember, everyone that attended loved every minute.
Thank you once again
Mrs Louise Coyle -50th Birthday Party
I wanted to say a huge thankyou to you and your team for the outstanding service I received for my 50th birthday party.From my initial enquiry you took great care with every detail and the quality and presentation of the beautiful sweet and savoury canapés have received many compliments from my guests. Tony and the waitresses were so professional and took great care to ensure that everybody was well looked after; never an empty glass in sight!!
You made the whole evening run seamlessly,taking all the stress out of organising a party and allowing me to enjoy a wonderful 50th birthday celebration.
Really can’t thank you enough and can’t believe I’ve not found Kwizeen earlier !
Christening and Birthday
We used Kwizeen to cater for our daughter’s 1st birthday & baptism in March 2015. Marco was a pleasure to deal with from the offset, arranging to meet us to discuss menus at our convenience. The food presentation was amazing especially the salmon and prawn platter! We had a hot and cold buffet for 100 guests and it was served right on time. Everybody was full of compliments on the day and since. The petit fours served on a LED tray was a great touch & the fruit skewers went down well with the adults and children. We would strongly recommend Marco and his team for your special day.

The Grimsargh Field Day Ball
I would just like to say a massive thank you to Marco and the team for once again making the Grimsargh Field Day Ball a wonderful evening and for serving up such amazing food. The service we get each year is outstanding, the waiting on staff cannot do enough to help and the food itself is delicious. The comments we get after the ball is that they feel like they are in a 4/5* restaurant, not the local village hall.
The canapés on arrival are a massive hit.

Mrs. Aly Spencer 30th Birthday Party
The service from Kwizeen at my 30th birthday party was truly outstanding.
The theme was Hollywood, and they certainly met the brief in terms of the standard of the food and the conduct of their staff. They were subtle, professional and experienced – taking plates of beautifully presented canapés to every guest throughout the night. The flow of food seemed endless! Guests took pictures of the plates because they were so glamorous and in-keeping with the theme. I would highly recommend the company, for providing ‘fine dining’ in my own home!

30th Birthday Celebrations
We recently used Kwizeen Outside catering for our daughter’s 30th birthday.
From start to finish they were outstanding….going beyond our expectations at every stage. During the planning phase, Marco and Tony gave very good advice on organisation based on their experiences of big house parties, ranging from where to position the bar and how to avoid having too many chairs, if any at all, to encourage mingling and dancing!
When the menus for hot and cold canapés and a range of miniature desserts arrived we were spoilt for choice but eventually selected our favourites from the vast array of options. We were absolutely delighted with the quality of the food on the night. As well as being something special for this occasion it was all beautifully cooked, expertly presented and then served by Tony himself to our guests. The food just seemed to keep coming until we had our fill and everyone commented on how good it all tasted and how special the service was. Worth particular mention was Marco’s son, Marcus, who worked tirelessly in the kitchen all night and his beautiful fruit kebabs were a sight and taste to behold. All in all Kwizeen did us proud and we would have no hesitation in recommending them or using them again in the future…thanks to you all for helping to make Aly’s night so memorable!

I want to express my sincerest thanks for your wonderful service at my recent 50th Birthday party. The tailored service you offered for my event was simply outstanding from start to finish.
You were extremely understanding of our requirements during your initial visit and delivered agreed.
The staff on the day were professional, polite and very attentive. The food was delicious, so much that every single one of our guests commented on the variety and taste on offer.
I know my work colleagues who travelled a great distance for the event stunned by the fantastic service throughout the day.
The event could not have been more perfect and Kwizeen played a huge part in its success.

Mr and Mrs Michael and Caroline Finlay Marquee Wedding, Poulton
We heard you were the best for outside catering and our experience confirmed that belief.
From the first contact Michael and Caroline had with you, you applied your considerable expertise in a most caring and considerate way, enabling them to build a unique experience to totally suit them and to suit their budget. I was so impressed with the “trial meal” when you invited us to your restaurant and gave us a whole range of choices and then adjusted the menu to suit the tastes we most loved. We will recommend you to all of our friends and colleagues as THE company to hire to provide such a seamless service and superb food for any celebratory event they are planning.
I think the element which most impressed Alan and me was the personal commitment you clearly made to make sure everything you were involved with during the 12 month planning stage was organised as well as it could be – your confidence was supportive whilst your flexibility and friendliness was reassuring.
Marcos, Catalina, Tony and you were reassuringly “around” in the few days leading up to our event – ensuring all equipment and resources were in place and providing us with the confidence that you would cope with the predicted storms.
We went to our daughter’s church wedding with total confidence that when we returned to our marquee the guests would be welcomed by your superbly dressed team and the catering would be perfect. It was perfect! The canapes were delicious and prolific and then the sit down meal for 100 people was superb. The plated trio of deserts was a crowning glory – so many guests were so complimentary about the quality and quantity.
Catalina ensured the bride and grooms’ wishes were perfectly executed – in a very effective, efficient but friendly way. She managed her team beautifully – the guests were all so impressed by the little touches, such as all people on each table being served at exactly the same time, requests for extra water, wine etc promptly carried out with grace and we appreciated the occasional contact to check that everything was going as we wished.
I anticipated that once the bar closed, you would leave and come to tidy up in the morning – but was so impressed that you and your key team stayed around, in the background, collecting up abandoned glasses from the garden and the marquee and then, when the last guest had gone in the early hours of the morning, tidying up and securing the venue.
A wedding at home could have been so stressful for me in particular – the stress of having to be a hostess clashing with the wish to relax and enjoy being the mother of the bride – but you, your team and your superb catering enabled me to sit back and really enjoy one of the most important and enjoyable events of our lives in total confidence. A thousand thank you for enabling me to do this.
with very best wishes
Ann and Alan Lloyd(Parents of the Bride)

Marquee Wedding-Bilsborrow,Nr Preston
We chose Kwizeen to cater for our marquee wedding celebration. From the start, Marco and Tony were attentive. With thoughtfulness and humour, they were consistently available for emails and conversations. They took on board our needs and specific dietary requirements and created numerous creative and delicious morsels. They became aware that we wanted something different and they rose to the challenges we gave them with both food and bar. The staff were very helpful and always smiling. Our recommendation to others would be, if you’re using the ‘walk-around service’, to ensure that your guests know the format of the meal and that other activities are closed down while the food is taken out.
Gary & Amber Parkinson
The Ashton and Lea Charity Ball-Preston
From the first phone call to saying Goodbye on the evening of our event Marco has been absolutely OUTSTANDING.
Always professional, meticulous, well mannered, passionate, generous and a wealth of knowledge.
At our first ‘venue’ meeting Marco was extremely helpful giving advice not only on food choice but on the whole event. Experience and his attention to detail was invaluable as this was our very first event.
Many emails and phone calls have passed between us. Mainly from us I may add ! We were always greeted with enthusiasm and positive support, questions were always answered.
Kwizeen staff are fabulous !
The tables were presented beautifully, quality cutlery and crockery used, again attention to detail. All the waiting on staff looked immaculate, professional, knowledgeable about the food and SMILED all evening !
Canapés looked and tasted wonderful. It really was an uplifting start to our evening.
Not only was the food hot it was served promptly and efficiently. Both the meat and vegetarian food choice was delicious. Presented beautifully and tasted divine. The trio of puddings were delightful.
We really were spoilt with such exquisite food.
Kwizeen cleared, cleaned and tided leaving everywhere immaculate. Everyone of our 115 guest commented on how fabulous the staff, canapés, food and tables were. Not one negative comment, which we are not surprised about at all.
Both Marco and all who are associated with Kwizeen should be immensely proud of themselves.
We would and already have recommended Kwizeen to our friends. We can not recommend them enough and will definitely use them again.

We just wanted to thank you and your team for the excellent catering for over a hundred guests at our first major fundraising event – our Spring Ball.
You helped us to plan and organise this really successful evening that raised £4000 for our charity.
Your idea to have a ‘menu sampling’ night at Kwizeen was a delicious idea, and the food at the Ball was just as fantastic.
All your staff were friendly, efficient and very professional – the beautifully presented dishes seemed to appear by magic and the whole night went very smoothly.
Please pass on our thanks to them and we hope you’ll work with us to make our next fundraiser bigger and even better!

For the first time ever, we held a garden party at our home on Newton Drive
Without ever needing to venture into the kitchen, pour a drink or wash a plate!
It was WONDERFUL, in fact we even enjoyed it as much as our guests.
Everybody present marvelled at the culinary delights that were the “starters”
Charming served by the young lady who mingled amongst our guests for several hours.
The main course were a gastronomic delight and of course were the deseerts,again served by the young lady, were truly inspired.
We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Marco, Tony and their
Team for any event. Their attention to detail and obvious experience in catering was a pleasure to behold and enjoy.

Dear Marco, Tony & Team,
We would like to thank you so very much for the wonderful food and service provided to us at our house warming party last Sunday 25th May, all our guests said how lovely the food was presented and delicious it tasted. We appreciated the time and effort it must have taken to prepare. It completely took away all the stress from my husband and I leaving us able to enjoy the company of our friends.
We have been to many functions where Kwizeen have provided the catering and also dined in the restaurant and they have never let us down. We would have no hesitation in recommending either dining at the restaurant or the sevices of the outside catering – both are fantastic “thank you once again”

Mr Geoffrey’s Mile Stone Birthday Garden Party
For anyone considering using Kwizeen Outside Catering:
I would like to reassure you and strongly recommend that you use them.
When we were planning a family celebration involving 60 guests we found Kwizeen by Googling and we soon decided they offered the best at a fair and reasonable price.
Never having dealt with them before, nor having ever eaten at their restaurant in Blackpool, I followed up a reference which had been supplied to me and was happy with what that previous client had to say about them.
Marco’s excellent service and attention to detail began when he came round to see us and we sat around a table discussing our requirements.
A detailed email arrived shortly after confirming all we had talked about with a clear breakdown of costs.
We confirmed that we would like him to go ahead and in the days leading up to our event he kept in touch re numbers and the food we had chosen and the day before he arrived with all the equipment he would need to carry out his services.
The food was excellent and plenty and impressed us and our guests. We paid them to run the bar and serve the food and they were very obliging in every way. Lovely people who gave the very best service, continually checking timing with me and any other detail which can only be dealt with as things progress.
It was a great success and I would not hesitate in recommending them to you.

Dear Marco, Tony, Catalina and all the team at Kwizeen,
We cannot praise you enough for the fantastic work you did for Hayley and Andy’s wedding last weekend. You all worked tremendously hard to make their day a very special day to remember.
Your attention to detail was impeccable and the advice you gave us during the preliminary arrangements of the wedding was excellent. You were all very patient during the constant changes.
Your team were efficient, professional, smartly dressed, friendly, obliging and attentive.
The food, well, what can we say about the food except that it was incredible, tasty and beautifully presented. The general feedback from all the guests has been that it was the best food they had had at a wedding and we both have to agree with them.
The tables looked lovely when you had dressed them all and it definitely made the finishing touches to the marquee setting and you created the perfect ambience.
A very professional service all round and we will sing your praises to everyone we know and we will definitely use your services in the future.
Many thanks and best wishes.

Kwizeen Testimonial: Easter Party for 40 in 2014.
Our Easter party was a get-together for 40 friends and family – we were not celebrating any special occasion, but we wanted to have some good food with little effort on our part – so Kwizeen sprang to mind!
We discussed various options with Marco and he came up with lots of ideas, then he waited patiently whilst we decided what we wanted to do. Eventually we agreed on a cold buffet and desserts which could be set up in advance of the party. All the details of the food were agreed and documented by email.
On the day, Marco and Tony arrived punctually and unloaded, unloaded, unloaded. There seemed to be a lot of food, but when it was set up it looked a picture: a full salmon with cucumber “scales”, a mound of prawns, heaps of cooked meats, mini pies, baked ham, salamis… salads… It was a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.
Needless to say the food helped the party to be a big success. The oohs and aaahs said it all as the salmon and meats disappeared, the mini pies gradually decreased and then the mini crème brulee went in a trice! We were free to enjoy our event without worrying about whether the food was ok, and the final best bit – all the dirty plates and cutlery were just stacked in crates ready for Marco to collect the next day! What a relief not to have to do the washing up for 40 people.
Many thanks to all the Kwizeen team for all their hard work and imagination, for being so reliable and so easy to work with.

Another excellent catering and drinks service by Marco, Tony and the rest of the Kwizeen staff. Last summer we used Kwizeen for a summer party at home for family and friends – please see our testimonial below. We had no hesitation in using them again. Once again our party guests commented on the fabulous food and the great service. Many asked for the details of who we used.
Kwizeen suggested a varied menu which our guests loved, especially the hand carved roast beef which was a particular favourite. Also a number of people have asked us to get the recipe for the Cheese and Onion Pie – “best ever” was one comment! From first meeting and initial planning right through to the end of the event the Kwizeen team displayed total professionalism and organisation which helps to make any event a success!

40th Birthday Bash at Walmer Bridge Village Hall, Preston
Hello Marco, Tony and the team
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for bringing my vision of the perfect party to life. From initial enquiry when sourcing and identifying who could bring my ideas to life I was impressed with the service and delivery. Within 24 hours of my making contact I met with Marco at my venue, nothing was taken to chance. A review of the facilities available in order to assess what they could deliver, and deliver they did !!
Ensuring that everyone had a great time, kids and adults alike, I was presented with menu options and I chose canapés throughout my evening. The food was beautifully presented, tasted delicious, a huge variety available and the service was non intrusive. My guests munched their way through over a dozen different canapés whilst chatting, dancing, resting and drinking.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Kwizeen to support your event – an old fashioned approach to service excellence with a modern contemporary delicious taste.

40th Birthday Party @ Great Mains Hall “House”
Can I say what a fantastic weekend we all had for my husband’s 40th birthday celebrations. We all stayed at Mains Hall Manor house in Poulton Le Fylde for a weekend. Marco from Kwizeen restaurant came to the house and made and served amazing canapés for 30 of our guests. Tony was happy to serve drinks all evening from his set up bar area which included smoking cocktails (Dry Ice) etc. FANTASTIC! Then the next morning Marco and Tony where back to serve all fourteen guests an amazing full English breakfast, they even set the table and provided all cutlery and crockery AMAZING.
To finish our weekend off, Kwizeen then returned to the house and made a fantastic three course meal for us all and even poured all of the wine. We did not lift a finger during our stay at this amazing house. We will return for another stay and would recommend Kwizeen to everyone. I picked Marco because he was as interested in a small party as he is in catering for large functions. Thanks guysSUPERB!!!!!! If you are planning a wedding at Mains Hall Manor you must use Kwizeen restaurant to make your stay even better.

Diamond Wedding Anniversary
We first experienced Kwizeen two years ago when they presented a marvellous lunch for a friend’s birthday and then more recently at a neighbours special celebratory event. So when it came to planning for our Diamond Wedding celebration we had no hesitation and every confidence in approaching Marco to look after us. It could not have been a better choice. We were planning two separate parties. Firstly at the end of August a garden party for our immediate four generation family of 27 in total. Then later in November a Sunday lunch at home for 17 guests.
From the first phone call to the last unobtrusive clear-up nothing was any trouble to Marco – various dietary requirements, changing numbers, changing times, all smoothly accommodated. We cannot speak highly enough of the care and attention we received from Marco, Tony and all the team which left us free completely carefree to enjoy the party,
The food was magnificent The service impeccable and the needs of every single guest anticipated with friendly and cheerful courtesy.
We are so grateful to Marco and Kwizeen for making our Diamond Wedding celebrations so memorable for us and our family. Our next party will certainly be another Kwizeen occasion.

James’ 21st Birthday Party and Mum’s Retirement
We said in a previous testimonial that next time we booked Kwizeen, we hoped it would be in happier circumstances, and it certainly was.
As previously Marco and Tony, your suggestions and guidance in the pre-planning stage were most helpful and your attention to detail along with the service on the night made a major contribution to the success of our party.
Our family and friends are still talking about the delicious canapés that just kept on coming. It makes such a difference not to have to worry about catering for large number of people and all the stress that goes with it!
Also you ensured that everything was cleared away quickly and efficiently the following day.
We would also like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all your staff were hard working, attentive and courteous.
Many thanks once again Marco, Tony and the staff of Kwizeen.
P.S. Our family meal in your restaurant
following the party was fantastic, as were the ‘little extras’ that
made it special.

Charity Event-World Healing Centre-Blackpool
Our Charity WHC in Lytham Road, Blackpool had a retreat catered by Kwizeen Outside catering 4th – 6th Oct 2013.
The quality of the service and the food was consistently above expectations with the personnel going beyond customery standards to provide exceptional value and service.
Our very best wishes and appreciation,
Queensway Medical Centre Poulton-Le-Fylde
Further to our conversation earlier today I would like to thank you again for the excellent food and service you provided for us at our event last night. Your staff were delightful and most helpful. The food was delicious and appreciated by all. I was able to completely relax and enjoy the evening reassured all was being taken care of. Thank you for all your advice and support and attention to detail.
Corporate Entertaining Event
Madame Taussauds in Coronation Street
The food prepared and served by Marco was nothing less than outstanding. The quality, taste and presentation of the “mini” pub classic canapés had our corporate clients blown away. We will use Kwizeen again without hesitation and would highly recommend them to anyone holding events or celebrations. If you are looking for top quality, inspiring, delicious food then it doesn’t come any better than this. Thank you again from the team at Madame Taussauds and we look forward to using you again in the future.

50th Birthday Party@Poulton Cricket Club
I contacted Kwizeen as I had seen their outside catering van at the venue I was holding my 50th, I can honestly say it was the best decision I have ever made. Marco advised that canapes are a popular option and we went for a tasting session at the restaurant. The whole evening was an absolute success, my guests were completely overawed by the fish and chips, chicken tikka baskets and the prawns in parmesan baskets (these were just a few).
Then the sweets came out, I have never heard so many ooh’s and aah’s but that wasn’t it, then the pineapple with fruit skewers was produced followed by mini ice-creams in brandy snap cones. I think most of the guests rolled home that night!!. I would also like to thank Tony and his team who were professional and engaging and encouraged my guests to try things they were not sure about. Guests who attend the party are still talking about how good the food and the service was, I will definitely use Marco and his team again.
Many thanks again

On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to thank you for all your hard work and effort with the catering at our event. We decided to have a barbeque which is not
an easy option as most of it has to be cooked on the spot.
We were forever altering the menu which you took in your stride and with good humour and we felt that you understood the brief and went out of your way to ensure
that we were happy with the menu, which included several home visits and tastings.
Your catering team looked professional and cleared up well without being too intrusive and we felt that that by using Kwizeen a great and tasty dimension was
added to the party.
Thanks once again
50th Birthday Party – South Shore Tennis Club – 90 guests (August 2013)
Having eaten many times at Kwizeen and had consistently great food and exceptional service, Kwizeen seemed the ideal choice as caterer for my big 5 -0. I wanted to do something different and many thanks Marco for suggesting the canapé idea. What a fantastic recommendation!
Bitesize takes on classic food went down a storm- mini fish and chips and roast beef and Yorkshire pudding were a dream. All were served piping hot fresh from the ovens. All the food was excellently prepared with customer service panache. Food kept coming and coming..Kwizeen were keen to ensure everyone had enough and I had to stop them from cooking, as all the guests were full to bursting – I am sure they would’ve happily carried on serving for hours if I would’ve let them.
All the guests thoroughly enjoyed the food and are still raving about the uniqueness. ‘BRILLIANT’,’SUPERB’, ‘OUTSTANDING’, ‘MAGNIFICENT’ are just a few of the adjectives used by the guests to describe the food.
Excellent job Marco, Tony and the team, thanks for making ,my night so special –
THANK YOU XX

Christening Catering at Fylde Cricket Club, Poulton-Le-Fylde
We used Kwizeen to cater our daughters christening party for 60 guests…we were over the moon with the level of service that we received from Marco from point of enquiry onwards. The food was just delicious and there was more than enough to go around, most guests went back for thirds and everyone made a point of commenting on how good the food was! I will certainly be calling on Marco for our next party as the quality and service was outstanding and all at a highly competitive price. Marco took all the stress out of the day for us and we were able to just enjoy ourselves and enjoy the food.

Summer Gill Farm, Marquee Wedding, Wray, Near Hornby, Lancaster
We have truly not got a bad word to say about Kwizeen. Marco and his team of wonderful staff have been so helpful from start to finish.
The very first time we enquired about Kwizeen, Marco did not disappoint, he listened to our (very vague) ideas and with his knowledge and experience turned these ideas into a wonderful menu, with canapés, a main and a trio of deserts.
Marco was very helpful and invited us to his restaurant for a tasting, we were blown away by the whole meal, in particular the canapés, which included mini fish and chips and chicken tikka.
The build up to the wedding was very stress free thanks to Marco and Tony’s willingness, with them both often going beyond the call of duty. They weren’t put off by the outbuilding which with only a couple of months to go before the wedding still had cows in.
The organisation of the team on the day, meant that everything ran smoothly without a hitch, everything was the correct temperature and on time, with the food easily became a talking point of our special day. The main of pies and mash was fantastic, just how we wanted it. His attention to detail really stood out and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kwizeen to anyone, they really are more than just your average catering company. We got treated as individuals and have got to know Marco like a friend, the whole package was perfect.
Simon and Gayle Denny.(Groom and Bride)
Summer Gill Farm ( Wray)
Choosing Kwizeen for our son’s wedding was a great decision. Communication, attention to detail and flexibility from Marco and his team was exceptional. We were blown away by the tasting at Marco’s restaurant and any fears about reproducing such quality for 100 people at a remote farm setting were also blown away on the wedding day. Our son and his then fiancé chose the menu with the magnificent canapés as the guests arrived, pies, mash potatoes and vegetables as the main course and a trio of desserts for the final course. It was all exceptional and enjoyed by all, in fact our niece and her husband had been guests at a society wedding in London (Top 50 Rich List) a few days earlier and commented on how much better Marco’s food was and he could teach them a thing or two on how to cook such amazing canapés.
The service and politeness of all the serving staff was second to none with a special thanks to Tony. We would not hesitate in using Kwizeen for other events or to recommend Marco and the team to others.

Film Shoot Lancashire
I often tell young film makers that they forget to consider the catering at their peril! A film crew marches on their stomachs – they may be a very creative bunch but it is hard physical work. That is precisely why it was so good to have Kwizeen providing the catering for THE LIGHT when we were on location in Lancashire. Timely food, polite and efficient delivery, a fantastic range of dishes and an outstanding breakfast! I was really impressed by the time and care Marco put into preparation – he knew the challenges we faced on location and made sure the catering was not one of them! We would be delighted to use Marco and his team again.
“Our crew loved the food from Marco and the team at Kwizeen, thank you for being such a vital part of the team for the shoot.”

Corporate Catering Event
Always on the look-out to improve our corporate hospitality, I talked to various catering companies in Blackpool. Kwizeen suggested an innovative solution, with a clever menu, and a very competitive price. The two events they have run so far have been a huge success with consistently positive feedback from our guests on the quality (and quantity!) of the Kwizeen food.
I have no hesitation in recommending Marco and the team for any outside catering requirements and have already booked them for our next event.

The whole evening was one that my Husband and I will be remembering forever and our thanks to all the marvellous team from Kwizeen”

North Fylde Rotary Club – Barbeque Catering Event
Location- Holmfield Avenue-Cleveley’s
On behalf of North Fylde Rotary Club, I would like to thank you for a special BBQ last Sunday. The food was fantastic from the salads, kebabs, steak etc, to the mini desserts and the ice cream cones! All seventy three of us enjoyed it and at a very reasonable price. We are especially looking forward to tasting all the wonderful food that was prepared for us. Thank you so much and we wait with anticipation.
60th Birthday- House Party
Just to say thank you so much for making my 60th birthday so special. My family were delighted with all the canapés, savoury and sweet. The pineapple with skewers of fresh fruit was greeted with squeals of delight and gasps of amazement. The vegetable and Lamb Babootie were delicious. It was served so professionally and left me able to fully enjoy the day.

Marco and his team at Kwizeen were recommended to us on a few occasions by different people when we were planning our wedding so it was only fair that we arranged to meet him….after our first meeting with Marco we couldn’t possibly consider anyone else and nor shall we do in the future! He was professional, polite, passionate and above all patient especially over our complete change in menu and our disagreements between pie and mash and an afternoon tea. On top of this he gave us a mini meringue topped with popping candy on so of course the deal was done.
We had meetings at Kwizeen, he came to our home, there were many emails and phone calls back and forth in which he always listened and offered his ideas and answered all of our questions (and there were many). Then we had the most wonderful tasting evening in the restaurant and designed our perfect menu together with him and awaited our handmade peanut butter cheesecakes which were incredible! Marco stayed in touch at every point and if anything stood out in particular it was his understanding that the wedding was our day. This, coupled with the care he showed to make everything just how we imagined it really gave us a catering experience that was second to none. From how the food would be set out on the plate, to finding the sugar cubes and of course our individual table settings – Marco and his team placed a chocolate silver sixpence in 75 teacups and tucked notes in between each teacup and saucer following our instructions and drawings. Throughout planning the wedding we didn’t meet anyone else who placed such importance on the little things as we did. Which for us was simply amazing. It goes without saying that the food was absolutely outstanding and the service of his team was faultless.
The Canapés, the Afternoon Tea and the evening Hog Roast truly delighted our guests. Actually we were so disappointed with the fact that we struggled to eat all the lovely things on our actual wedding day we requested an afternoon tea for two a few weeks later. The ovens in the kitchen on north pier broke in the evening, not that anyone would have noticed. Marco came to us immediately, explained that they were going to take the food to Kwizeen to cook it and that the delay would be no more than half an hour. It was dealt with so swiftly and professionally it didn’t make an ounce of difference. We honestly cannot praise Marco, Tony and his team enough nothing was ever too much for them. We got a personal, professional, perfect experience and in future we won’t be going anywhere else for our catering requirements whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, christening or just a family treat. Finally we’d like to personally thank Marco and his team AGAIN for playing such a big part in the best day of our lives, here’s to many more.

25th Wedding Anniversary
We would just like to say how pleased we were with the service provided by Kwizeen for our 25th wedding anniversary party. We had been to a couple of events that Kwizeen had catered in the past so we already knew how high the quality of the food was. However, the services provided by Marco and his team was outstanding right from the initial meeting to discuss our requirements to the night itself.
The staff were fantastic on the night, giving excellent service which allowed us to really enjoy the evening. Everyone who attended the party commented on how they had enjoyed the food. All in all it was faultless and excellent value for money.
Thanks to all at Kwizeen and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.

Barbeque 50th Birthday Party
We booked Kwizeen having read the testimonials. We were not disappointed. Marco and Tony created and served a great menu with a variety to suit all tastes. The service was excellent and delivered with no fuss. Our guests were impressed and did their best to do justice to the great selection of food provided. We would definitely recommend Kwizeen to anyone.
Trevor and Alison Powell,
Marco, Tony and their team recently provided catering and service for our party at home for family and friends. The drinks service was excellent and it meant that, as hosts, we could relax and enjoy the party and socialise with our guests. The food was fabulous, priced very competitively and an extensive choice of tasty dishes. Many of our guests commented on the professional, yet friendly service and were very complimentary of the great food. We would definitely have no hesitation booking Kwizeen for our next function. 5 stars!!

50th Birthday Party
I would just like to say a huge thank you to Marco and Tony for being the perfect hosts at my husband’s 50th birthday party. Your professionalism and attention to detail exceeded our expectations and couldn’t fault a thing.
I was particularly impressed with the time you took pre-party to ensure everything was perfectly planned and having the makeshift kitchen set up in our garage meant there was no disruption in the house itself and proved just how fresh your food is served! The fridge that you brought for the drinks was also another fabulous idea. The “pre canapé” canapés was a lovely unexpected touch and everyone commented on how fabulous the food was.
Once again a big big thank you and we definitely be using you again in the future.

We would like to thank you for the excellent service and catering following the Service of Internment of my mother at S. Stephen on the Cliffs, Blackpool. At every stage of the arrangements and on the day itself, you kept us fully informed and your attention to detail gave us confidence in your management skills. The quality of the food was superb and professionally presented. All our guests made complimentary remarks about the catering and arrangements you provided. Wish you were local to our home in South Wales!
With many thanks

50th Birthday Party
The entire evening of my 50th birthday party was a success and I wanted to thank you for all of your advice and the team’s hard work to make the event enjoyable for everyone. We have had lots of compliments over the choice of a continuous serving of canopies rather than the traditional buffet. The canapes kept coming, were interesting and tasted delightful and everyone had more than enough to eat and the conversation just flowed all evening.

Children’s Birthday Party -Chorley
I just wanted to say a massive Thank you for making Milo’s 4th birthday party such a success!! .The food and service you and your lovely assistant provided was just superb.
The food was not only a hit with the kid’s but parents too!
Milo loved his party food but your biggest fan has to be flora who wouldn’t move from the table until she had tried everything, i personally loved the orange jelly.
We would highly recommend you and your company and hope to use your service in the not too distant future.
Funeral Catering Poulton
Kwizeen provided excellent food and service – great value for money – and many compliments were made to Tony & Marco on the day. The service was impeccable; it was for refreshments after a funeral and their presence was very low key but completely professional.
I will not hesitate to use Kwizeen’s catering service again – they took all the angst out of what could have been a difficult day, and we love the food of course! Thank you very much.
It is just three weeks ago since we had a family gathering, and for the first time, (there would be thirty-five of us) I decided to use outside catering, and was unsure where to begin. I found Kwizeen’s web page and read about Marco. When I saw he had trained under John Tovey at Miller Howe I was impressed. I spoke of Kwizeen to a friend who gave a good recommendation, and I called in at his restaurant. His friendly approach made it easy to discuss menus, and the meal was tailor-made to my choice. After eating a sample Crème Brulee, my mind was made up.
On the day of the party everything went perfectly, my guests were most impressed. The friendly and efficient service offered by Marco and Tony was absolutely first class, . The food was modern and beautifully presented. All I had to do was to enjoy the company of my guests and the fine food.
We are still talking about the wonderful meal, it really made the day.
60th Wedding Anniversary
I would like to thank Marco, Tony and their wonderful staff for great food and great service on Saturday night. Kwizeen’s easy going attitude and willingness to listen made my parents 60th Anniversary party a night to remember. Marco made sure he fulfilled all our requests and nothing was too much trouble for his staff. It was the first time I have used outside catering for a family party, but after this great experience I would definitely use Kwizeen again! Excellent food, excellent staff, excellent service, and no washing up!! I would highly recommend Kwizeen,
We would like to thank Marco and his team at ‘Kwizeen Outside Catering’ for the outstanding service they recently provided at our parents’ 50th Wedding Anniversary. From the initial contact and planning through to the final preparations and delivery – the service was ‘second to none’. Our parents and their guests had a fantastic evening and everyone commented on presentation and quality of food and service. Kwizeen did us ‘proud’ and we would have no hesitation in using or recommending them in the future.
Many thanks, once again.

North Pier Wedding, Blackpool
Right from the moment we met Marco and discussed our ideas we were very impressed with his attentiveness and enthusiasm for creating a menu that we would be really happy with, as it wasn’t the run of the mill wedding! Communication with Marco was very professional and consistent, but personable at the same time; i.e. the personalised dessert surprise, the home visits. He suggested some really good ideas that were fitting for the venue and the theme we were looking for. He offered great ideas and advice on what would work and what wouldn’t. Not only from the point of view of the menu, but how the food would be served, how it would look on the plate, what cutlery to use etc.
Once we were happy with the menu, Marco organised a tasting at Kwizeen, where he had prepared everything that would be served on the day, he explained how everything had been cooked and offered suggestions of things we might want to change or other ideas that would fit the menu.
Marco was in touch with us right through to the wedding day itself, ensuring that we were updated with progress, further suggestions we might want to consider. Marco helped with the table decorations, not really in his remit but absolutely displayed a customer service ethic that we were both really impressed with.
The venue itself was a work in progress and wasn’t finally completed until a couple of weeks before the wedding day. This could have been a major obstacle for other caterers, but Marco took it in his stride, ensuring he had all the equipment he needed and that everything was logistically sound on the day. Marco instilled trust in us, we felt confident that he could pull our big day off no matter what we threw at him!
On the day Marco and his staff served the most amazing food, all freshly cooked, and served with a smile, Marcos staffs are a credit to him. The guests were amazed at the variety and quality of the food, we had some really good feedback from the guests on the food. From the canapés to the sweet. As with all weddings, timings do sometimes slip. No problem for Marco and his team, they adapted and carried on as professionally as ever.
We spoke to the venue owners after soon after the wedding and they were really impressed on how clean and tidy Marco and his team had left the facilities and the kitchen. Again testament to their professionalism.
I can t recommend Marco enough, I know that whenever we have another function where we need a caterer Marco will be the first person we call.
Marco went above and beyond his remit, a truly lovely, genuine man. Thankyou.

Many thanks to Marco, Tony and the ‘Team’ at Kwizeen for the fantastic servcie you provided in both the planning and delivery of our party buffet. We were grateful for your enthusiasm and interest right from the start which inspired us to choose a Mediterranean buffet which was impressive, delicious and enjoyed by all our friends. Your service was professional and you thoroughly deserve the excellent reputation you hold.
We would highly recommend you – Fantastic!

Marco and the staff at Kwizeen.
Many thanks for a wonderful meal at St Annes Old Links Golf Club, you certainly know how to pull out all the stops for that special occasion.
The attention to detail that was applied prior to the meal as regards choice of menu etc. ensured that without exception every individual meal was second to none, even supplying that extra special cutlery or glasses, making just that difference to the whole eating experience.
The presentation of the meals was superb and the quality of the ingredients used without fault.
A wonderful meal served with care and attention making the whole experience a truly memorable one for ourselves and our guests, the Captains and wives of all the Fylde Golf Clubs.

40th Birthday Party
Many thanks to Marco, Tony and their team for helping to make my birthday party at home such a success. Kwizeen came recommended to me via a friend and I have to say that I will be forwarding the recommendation on to other friends of mine.
All of my guests remarked on the standard of the canapés and the excellent service with a smile from the staff. They did a very good job of remembering my guest’s favourite canapés and drinks when serving throughout the evening, which was commented on by a number of people post party. This goes to show the attention was given to guests from the staff which enabled my husband and me to socialise and enjoy the evening knowing everyone was taken care of. Nothing was too much trouble for them and I didn’t even have to wash up at the end of the night!!!
The evening was far more enjoyable having Kwizeen here to take care of everything.
Marco, Tony and the team are very friendly and professional. I particularly liked that fact that Marco came to see me and the venue before the party so that he knew exactly how they were going to work things on the evening .It was a good job he did as unfortunately it rained all day therefore we had to go to “plan B ”
which Marco was prepared for.
Once again many thanks for your part in a super evening enjoyed by all,
Jayne & Denzil Kirnon.
P.S Hope Tony’s nose has healed!!!
Our Marquee Wedding
I’d just like to say a huge thank you to you both for a splendid and super wedding day.
The Canapé’s were WORLD class – followed by the main wedding breakfast which was just perfection.
I loved the way you both were there at the planning stage, giving advice and sourcing further items we needed for the day. The tasting that we attended. It wasn’t just here is a sample, it was a full run through of what we had chosen. Then to top it off, we changed something and….you cooked it again.
The marquee looked fabulous after you had laid all the tables. The cutlery and you hold is beautiful – plus the Villeroy and Boch wine glasses were just stunning. The whole event just boasted elegance and prestige, in my mind this is what Kwizeen represents.
Everyone who attended has mentioned the food and service. One comment from a guest was “no job was too small for the Kwizeen guys”. This was so true, We had to collapse some tables for the evening reception to start, one word to Tony….it was done.
Kwizeen also provided the evening food – I mentioned to you I’d toyed with the idea of a hog roast – needless to say Marco had the Kwizeen twist and supplied three boned and rolled pigs laid out in the marquee. Needless to say the guests have since told us it was moist, tasty and a feature for the eye – and a second visit!
Just to put into perspective how professional Kwizeen are – we had a slight power problem in the marquee while my wife and I were at the church – down from 4 ovens to 2 – what did Marco at Kwizeen do – DELIVERED – on time, perfectly cooked. I however had no idea and wasn’t told till the next day.
I could not recommend a more professional, courteous and thoughtful caterer for anybody’s wedding, birthday or any party for that matter. I know that when I think of catering in the future, all I will think of is the number for Kwizeen.
Ps – See you at the Christening

We would just like to thank Marco and his team at Kwizeen for the excellent service you provided on my husbands 60th birthday party!
You provided everything we requested right down to a fridge to keep the drinks cold!
The assorted canapés were delicious and many a guest commented on them. The desert canapés too were excellent the favourite being the fresh fruit skewers and the brandy snap cones with popping candy!!! Your staff so were discreet yet efficient including the chef on site who was so kind and helpful. Finally the lovely man who ran the bar was superb – nothing was too much trouble!
I would certainly use your services again and have recommended you to both friends and family and I sincerely hope they will give you a try.
Kwizeen took the stress out of the evening so that I too could relax and enjoy what turned out to be a most memorable birthday for my husband, family and friends.
Once again thank you all so very much.

A huge thank you to all the team at Kwizeen. It’s a very stressful time organising a party, especially when it’s your mum’s surprise 70th birthday celebration. Thanks to Kwizeen, all the stress and pressures were completely relieved, due to impeccable organisation, efficiency and superb cuisine. The whole Kwizeen experience enabled us as hosts, to enjoy the party experience with all our family and friends, without having to worry about preparing, cooking and clearing up! A true professional experience, which we as a family would not hesitate to use again.
Thank goodness for Kwizeen!

Just a quick letter to thank you and your team for your part in a most successful New Years Eve dinner & dance this year.
The dishes were excellent as was the service on the night; all delivered on budget and to a high standard.
We look forward to working with your company again and would welcome your thoughts on next New Years Eve’s four course menu at your convenience.
Many thanks again

” I knew about Kwizeen by visiting the restaurant on a regularly – we always enjoy a superb meal and prompt service, however until recently I was unaware that they did outside catering. Luckily I noticed the van outside whilst enjoying a meal and enquired about their services as we were about to host a large family gathering to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
Suffice to say we were just as pleased with the catering service as the restaurant service. Kwizeen set up a makeshift kitchen in my garage and brought beautifully prepared food out to our guests all evening. Everything was superb and they went far beyond what was expected. I would not even consider using any other caterer.
Thanks again to Marco, tony and all the team ”

You made the evening of John’s 60th Birthday memorable. Everyone there was so impressed, had loads of thank you’s with regards to the food, high on the texts. Our Ozzie relatives were so impressed especially Arthur who is so well travelled.
You all worked so hard, it was greatly appreciated.
Best Wishes to you and the team.

Firstly, I would like to thank Marco and his staff and attention to detail on my 50th Birthday party celebration at St Annes Old Links Golf Club. Marco’s choice of Canapés and meals (Including the suckling pig) was superb. All of the 100 guests have commented on how spectacular the food was and how courteous and helpful the staff had been.
I would recommend “kwizeen” to anybody who wants their night to be a great success.
Once again many Thanks,

I would just to like to say what a fantastic job you did at my drinks party. The canapes were excellent and the selection on offer varied and interesting. I was particulary impressed that you came to see me a couple of months beforehand to familiarise yourself with the house. Tony was very attentive in making sure that everyones glass was topped up ( I think shares in Paracetomol went up the following day!) and Catalina was also brilliant with a lovely smile and nothing too much trouble. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone and have already had a phone call for your details. Thanks again

We selected Kwizeen to cater at our home for our daughter’s 30th birthday party with about 40 guests of all ages attending. Having never had catering before we spoke to several companies and decided upon Marco principally because he offered the best range of canapes and meals for the lowest price.
However that is just the start. He very quickly understood our needs as he got to know us as a family and gave suggestions we would never have thought of (bar, barman, cocktails etc) Up to the event he was very supportive and put us under no pressure to confirm numbers(given the event was 17th December with people travelling from Saudi Arabia, Germany, Hampshire and Yorkshire this was really helpful) Menus were decided upon with no fuss, On the day Marco’s team all arrived and set up as agreed. Everything was ready when guests arrived and the evening went superbly. They are a great group of people to deal with and we would certainly use them again.

Very many thanks for all your efforts in making our party on the 23rd such a success. The early planning was essential and gave me total reassurance that everything would run smoothly on the night.
Your staff were particularly helpful and supportive throughout the night and all our guests reported back how special the food was particularly the suckling pig and the sweet chilli beef, served I may say with such flourish!!
It was a great help to me to have everything organised and to know that our guests were looked after so well and that everything was cleared away after the event
I will certainly recommend your service

Just a quick note to say a very big thank you for the amazing meal you put on for us.
With such a rubbish brief from myself I was so very happy with the turn out and it was exactly as I had imagined.
Every member of the press remarked on how tasty and unusual the food was.
Also to create a vegetarian option in a mere hour was just fantastic.
You went above expectations with the dessert!
Thank you so much

Out of the 100+ people at the event, there was not one negative comment about anything – the food was excellent (especially the Lamb Babootie), the staff were efficient and very personable. We would not hesitate to recommend your outside catering to anyone who asked, we have also made the same comment on Facebook. Good luck to you both for the future.

I would like to thank you for your wonderful barbeque at my 60th birthday gathering. It was perfect and meant that we could all enjoy each other’s company without worrying about a thing!
In spite of the rain you provided us with a feast of savoury delights from the grill and a mouthwatering selection of bitesized desserts which were irresistable! We weren’t rushed in any way and the fact that you provided all the crockery & cutlery meant we could continue the evening in the knowledge that everything had been taken care of! Perfect!
Thank you again,
