    Perfect Wedding Meal

    Paradise Gourmet catered our wedding at the Kona Beach Bungalows on January 3, 2020 and we could not have been happier with the food and service, it was top notch. Our guests raved that it was the best meal they had during their trips. Highly recommend.

    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

    Thanks to Paradise Gourmet, I had THE PERFECT wedding on Kealakekua Bay, Big Island, Hawaii. They referred me to my other amazing vendors. My flowers by Jean brought tears to my eyes, the arch I rented was fantastic, my photographer was amazing, my umbrellas were gorgeous and the sound was perfect.

    As for the services that Paradise Gourmet provided, they were flawless. I felt guided and helped through every aspect of my wedding. The customer service was amazing. The setup was so gorgeous-- so many people said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. I absolutely loved the table and bar setup. The food was delicious and so beautifully presented. We opted for a cookout of hamburgers and hot dogs and let me tell you, this was the most gorgeous cookout I had ever been a part of. To top it all off, all of the servers they provided me with were SO SWEET and so great.

    I never dreamed I could have such a beautiful and perfect wedding and I owe it all to Paradise Gourmet!
