    It was such a pleasure working with Lava Lava Beach Club and Paradise Gourmet Catering. Definitely worth the upgrade to do Paradise Gourmet Catering. The food was amazing and all our guests raved about how delicious it all was. The staff were friendly and very attentive. We were informed by our guests that as soon as they arrived they were greeted, drink orders were taken and appetizers were being passed out. I was so pleased to hear how well they were taken care of. Working with Tina and Debra was amazing. They were both so knowledgable, provided guidance where needed and communication was always returned in a timely manner which made planning from the mainland so comfortable and stress free. Highly recommend! I don't have any photos back yet but if I can add them later to this review I will. - The Harrisons

    I would not consider having an event in Hawaii without Paradise Gourmet Catering. They were always available for questions and were able to meet all of our requests even though we had only 3 weeks to plan the entire Destination Wedding. The food was the best meal I had in Hawaii and throughout set-up and all the way to tear-down their professionalism was continually put to the challenge. In addition to the food on hold for so long, they had to port water to their work station site. The jaunt from caterer station to the reception was short and pitch black and still they were undaunted. To top it all off it also started to rain on our outdoor wedding.
    The Paradise team was never frustrated and maintained a picture perfect level of patience and understanding even though the wedding started over an hour late.
    Tina, Debra no words can ever cover my immense appreciation of your hard-work and willingness to help out.
    Thank you,
    Ellen

    I just had the opportunity to do a tasting of Paradise Gourmet's food and I can assure you their food is fabulous! Chef Chris is very creative yet down-to-earth and creates dishes that are sophisticated yet appealing to many different palettes. I have worked with Paradise Gourmet several times and their service and equipment is also top notch! PGC is a great choice for your next event!
