Most Enjoyable Fine Dining

Hello  Nico Many thanks for a highly successful afternoon; everyone loved the canapés and meal that followed. The service and interaction with our guests was great and provided the setting for a most enjoyable afternoon of fine dining. Thank you.

1000 meals a day – consistently excellent

Nico, in partnership with Ana Schwarz, designed the menu for the cafe in the Sculpture on the Gulf Pavilion in 2013. Nico ran the kitchen, which was serving up to 1000 meals a day at peak times. He was super efficient and the food variety and quality was consistently excellent despite the huge numbers of patrons, and temporary facilities. Nor were there ever long waits for service. Everyone was impressed and there is no doubt that the cafe played a major role in the overall success of the Pavilion.

Inundated with messages from happy members…

Dear Nico, Thank you very much for a heroic job on Saturday, we were inundated with messages from happy members yesterday. They loved the party so much they have asked us to do it again – without a concert to go to afterwards! You helped us enormously by bringing your food truck and preparing your delicious food on-site. We will certainly use you again where we can. With many thanks and very kind regards to you and your team.

Surpassed our Expectations!

Hello Nico Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job with the food at our Wedding. We knew your food was going to be something special but it really surpassed our expectations! The service & your staff were amazing too. Very professional. We had so many positive comments from guests saying how much they loved the food (especially the duck). Other highlights were the entrée which was delicious and looked great on the plate, setting the mood for the remaining courses. Plus we loved the creme brulée at the end of the meal. Thanks again for all your help on our Wedding Day and beforehand with the planning.

The Food Truck was a great fit for our Wedding Day ! You made the day so special!

I just wanted to express how pleased we were with the food you catered for our wedding day, we are so happy we chose you. Our guests are still raving about how excellent the food was. You were so efficient and lovely to deal with. The croquembouche was a work of art. The food truck was such a great fit with our wedding. Thanks so much for making our day so special, you did an amazing job….

Nico can be summed up in one word -- brilliant. Not only is his food delicious, creative, visually appealing and reasonably priced but he is thoroughly reliable and a pleasure to work with...100 out of 100.

Recommend you for events of any size!

We used Urban Escargot for our annual Trade Day at the Man O' War Tasting Room on 11th Feb 2014. I am so glad that we did, the food was amazing and everyone commented on how tasty it was and that there was plenty for everyone. We would certainly recommend Urban Escargot catering for any event, no matter what size the event is – Nico and his team are a pleasure to work with."

Hi Nico, Thank you SO MUCH for catering for our wedding, everyone couldn’t stop complementing us on the food, we couldn’t have picked anyone better.

The Best!

The wedding was a mix of people from many walks of life but a large section have experienced events, festivals and wedding across the globe.... The number of them whom have been up to us, but more importantly,  told others that it was not only one of the best events they have experienced but simply the best couple of days they have enjoyed was remarkable. As I said in my speech none of this happens without contribution of many. You and your team were a part of that experience and a part you can truly be proud of. We chose you for your passion and it was equally of this that we left you to your own devices on what would fit our day of wanting casual, quality and elegance ... Few things bring greater pleasure to people than good food so its something that can make and break a time of celebration all rocked.... Well done.

Such a success!

It was by chance we first stumbled across Nico to celebrate my birthday, the evening involved six couples at our home for a sit-down dinner. It was such a success we have done it annually ever since for various occasions with friends and family over the past four year! Outside of the fact his food is absolutely delicious, it is beautifully presented, the portion sizes are great, he helped us match the wine to the various courses – Nico is also a pleasure to deal with, so accommodating of people’s dietary requirements and working with our timetable. He can take over our kitchen any time!
