Just a short note to thank you for your excellent cooking and service during our recent Stag weekend. Everyone was impressed and we all had a blast. Suffice to say plans are afoot to either repeat or do something similar so doubtless Ill be back in touch at some point.
Cheers, Pete x
Now that we are back to reality in the UK. I wanted to send you a note of thanks for the wonderful food on Thursday, it was truly better than we could have imagined. Everyone loved it all and we ate the remainder the next day for lunch. The pickled cucumber went down particularly well and my mum has asked if you would mind passing on the recipe. You were so polite and helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble.
An amazing review, thank you Sarah Malaquias!
We hired Algarve Kitchen Angels to cook for our family of 10 at a week’s vacation villa rental in the Algarve. Louisa was a true angel! Louisa was communicative, organized, and professional throughout the entire process. Louisa produces exquisite food of the highest quality, and also went out of her way to be considerate of our picky children. She kindly made 2 different menus at every meal: one for the adults and one for the children, and everyone was thrilled with their food, the presentation, and their specialized desserts. I gave her a key to let herself in and I literally didn’t have to lift a finger. They were prompt for every meal time we requested, prepared the meal, served, cleared, cleaned, and left the kitchen in its original state. For lunches, Louisa would prepare a beach picnic for us, and all we had to do was grab the bags with food, utensils, plates, napkins, snacks, and dessert already thoughtfully included. It was a 100% positive experience that exceeded all of our expectations. We are from New York and consider ourselves to recognize good food and service, and my mother (who was with us on the trip), cooks her own gourmet meals every night. It was unanimous among my family that Louisa was EXTRAORDINARY. Our entire family wanted to stay forever or take them home with us. My very picky 13-year-old son couldn’t stop talking about Louisa and requesting for dinner that we put her on a plane and ask her to live with us. She was the highlight of our vacation!
All the best to you, Louisa!
Another great review🙂
We are 11 ladies who travel to Portugal every year. The Angels were recommended to us by the owner of the villa that we rent. And, what a find… they truly are one of the hidden secrets of the Algarve! We have used Louisa for the last 3 years now, she creates and serves a delicious three course evening meal for us and even serves the wine. This event has now become one of the highlights of our trip – we even get dressed up for our special “night in”!! The food is all home cooked and of a very high restaurant quality and we all love it. Louisa is also very flexible in meeting special dietary requirements, and on her departure, the kitchen looks like the fairies have paid a visit… it’s spotless and the fridge even contains some goodies for the next day!
Thank you SO much for all your help and deliciuos food last weekend, it made hosting all our guests so much more enjoyable! Joyce and Jim and No.6
Hi there hope you are well! wanted to get in touch as used you for a hen do last may and was so impressed with the service it was wonderful! we are coming back (not for a hen do this time) but just for a holiday and there will be 21 of us, all staying across two villas. I am hoping to organise a meal for our first night ( Saturday 29th april) and wanted to see if you were free and able to quote as well as offer some menus. Thanks Keri
I just wanted to say on behalf of everyone thank you so much for the BBQ on Sunday, it was brilliant, everyone said how impressed they were and how much they enjoyed it.
This was the brief for Louisa – it took place at our private villa in Vale do Lobo on Sunday the 29th September. From the planning to the execution it was faultless. I had not used Algarve Kitchen Angels previously, however, I had total faith in Louisa and her team from the start. Her buffet menu and canapes were just what we wanted, and the fact that she prepares the food herself made it even more special – the food exceeded all our expectations. Louisa and her team couldn’t have worked harder and all our guests thought it was fabulous and the best thing for me was that there was no washing up to do when all the guests had gone – total bliss!!!!
I can’t stop talking about the party to everyone I meet and I would most definitely use Louisa and her team again.
“It was our lucky day when Carol recommended you. The meal you supplied for Saturday evening was fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed by all.”
“We are now back in miserable grey Blighty and I just wanted to say again how fantastic the food and service was last week. It was a huge surprise to everyone so I’m very grateful for the extra help you and your colleague provided on the night.
I have no hesitation in recommending Algarve Kitchen Angels and will happily go onto Trip Adviser to do this. I will certainly use you again when we re-visit.”
Very best regards
>”This is just a quick note to thank you and June for the delicious food in Portugal. The boys really enjoyed it and the portions were very generous but perfect for the young tennis boys! (but I suspect you figured that out from our correspondence!) The curry was my personal favorite”
“On a recent trip to Portugal in July this year we employed the services of Algarve Kitchen Angels to provide a private dinner for my wife’s 60th Birthday celebrations. We were staying at a large villa in Almancil with our family (party of 17).
From start to finish the support from Louisa Al Safar was excellent and in the weeks leading up to the event she took on board our menu requirements (including those of the children) and the other services which couldn’t be provided directly (magician, flower decoration for table and a very special birthday cake) she organised brilliantly through her contacts.
Clearly this was the best thing we did by engaging with Louisa as she completely removed the hassle factor that faced us organising remotely. The birthday dinner party consisted of 12 adults and 5 children, 5 course menu (with choices) including additions such as homemade truffles and shortcake both of which were delicious. Louisa and her team arranged and set the table, prepared and cooked on site and the quality of the food, the presentation of the food and the service could only be described as second to none. I can’t speak too highly of it.
Everything Louisa quoted for from the start was delivered even up until the end when they tidied up the dining and kitchen areas leaving them as if nothing had happened. A plus point with Louisa’s quote was there were no hidden extras and given the attention to detail she demonstrated (which is often missed by some companies) I would have no hesitation in recommending and encouraging engagement with Algarve Kitchen Angels for any dining requirements.”
“Just wanted to thank you very much for a great job you and your team did for us last night. The menu was perfect for a rather hung over group – everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the evening and in particular the food quality.
As discussed last night we are already full for the summer season 2014 and we get lots of enquiries for catering – even a wedding enquiry for this year. We will not hesitate to recommend you. We will put a link onto our website for you – www.dcvillas.co.uk”
Many thanks again,
Your attention to detail has been superb, thank you for taking on the job, I’m sure it’ll be a memorable birthday for my Dad.

Just wanted to say a massive thanks for the BBQ you gave us on Friday night. The food was fantastic and the homemade burgers some of the best i have ever tasted! The pouring and servving of drinks was an added bonus we werent expecting.
I shall definately recommend you to anyone i know heading to the Algarve.
I just wanted to say thank you again for the wonderful meal last Thursday. It’s always hard to please such a diverse group but you managed it! It was a really relaxing evening, and the food was fantastic – everyone is now after your carrot purée recipe! It was a real treat and if we’d have planned further in advance we’d have definitely had booked your more than once. The whole experience was wonderful From start to finish so thank you again.
Just a quick note to thank you for the fabulous meal you prepared for my partners 60th in Almancil last week. The food and service of your staff was excellent from the planning and the delicious meal and extras you delivered to us. Everyone enjoyed the meal and and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone wishing to celebrate in The Algarve. Thanks again
Thank you so much for what you did last night to help make our celebration special.
The food was delicious but also the way you and your staff worked together made everything go perfectly. We had many complements from all our guests. Thank you also for cleaning up so well – it has made our today quite relaxing which is just as well because we are feeling rather sluggish.
Sue and Peter
