  • Extremely Capable Hands

    We strongly recommend Artisan Catering, Debbie was very professional, organised, and helpful. From first meeting her, we knew that our wedding arrangements were in extremely capable hands, and they were. John’s food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. Their wait staff were quietly helpful and professional. We had so many comments from our guests about the very high quality of the food and the service provided. We could not have been happier!

  • Their Service was Absolutely Flawless

    John and Debbie catered for our mid-winter wedding at Mount Soho, for which we had 134 guests. They managed with ease and their service was absolutely flawless. Since the wedding we have had endless feedback about the catering, many guests saying the canapes were the best they have ever tasted (especially the "lamb lollipops" which we would thoroughly recommend) and everyone has commented on the politeness and helpfulnes of the Artisan staff throughout the evening.
