Private Dining

There is nothing like living the whole restaurant experience in the comfort of your own home (or your home for the weekend) to make you feel relaxed and that little bit special.

How it works:

At Chef Carolina, we provide the food, the service (with a smile), and leave the kitchen as we find it on our arrival, so apart from feeling replete on our departure, you would never know we'd been there.

The majority of the preparation is done off site. We arrive approximately 1 1/2hours before the agreed dining time and complete our preparations on site. Having served the meal, we clear away, clean down the kitchen and disappear, leaving you to enjoy the rest off your evening.

We also offer a wine pairing service so (for a small admin fee), we can match the wine with the food, offering you a wine flight to perfectly compliment your evening.

Our menu changes seasonally as we believe in using seasonal products, using local suppliers wherever possible, sourcing the best and freshest ingredients. See below for our latest menu:
