    Best caterer in Carmel maybe California

    We love Paradise. They catered my brothers wedding mine, and now my sisters. Highly recommend the hand held Italian sausage and polenta tamales as appetizers, tie dye butter, savory bread pudding. Guests could not stop raving about these.

    Fantastic food delivered with personal attention

    Incredible event with COVID sensitivities that were complex to deal with. From start to finish rehearsal dinner to reception dinner they were a delight to work with.

I recently attended 2 separate events where Paradise Catering prepared the food service from breakfast to a late midnight dinner buffet. The food is freshly prepare and the blends of flavors is magical. I am still raving over their "gorgonzola bread pudding" which I could have eaten alone with the fresh salads served. This type of food and catering and services provided is well worth every dollar spent. I highly recommend Paradise Catering and their services and VIP customer service they provide to their clients.
