Chef Paco was fantastic! We had a dinner party for 13 and the food was phenomenal as was the service, presentation and whole experience. All of the guests raved about the food and it was such an effortless night for us as hosts which was a welcome change. I highly recommend Chef Paco and we look forward to having him soon again.
