Private Chefs

 Spoil yourself on St Barts by taking advantage of one of the professional French Chefs who will come and prepare the meal of your dreams in your villa.

There are choices of French, Creole, Asian and fusion Cuisine. For the discerning palate.

A Private Chef during your stay on St Barts will allow you to enjoy a Gastronomic meal provided by the best quality Chefs in Europe and the Caribbean, with the best choice of wine on St Barthelemy.

The choices and the quality are extraordinary for a meal prepared by a private chef in your villa, whether for an intimate dinner for two, a birthday or anniversary celebration, or simply to spoil yourself.

We have been working with the private chefs on St Barts for years, and we know who specializes in what. We also go through the process of who is available for you, negotiating budgets and getting the chef, his equipment and staff to and from your place of stay.

Sample menus are always just that, samples, and you can request any change, make any suggestion or add anything you wish within reason.

Because of the equipment generally available in St Barts Villa kitchens, the convention is that everyone eats the same main courses, and variations in sides and desserts are kept to a minimum.

You can eat A La Carte if you wish, however this will be more costly and require more staff and equipment. If this is what you want, just ask for it.

Table D'Hôte is a good compromise, wherein the group will have a limited range of appetizers, main courses* and desserts; this adds variety, however keeps the logistics to a minimum.

Wines and beverages are usually quoted separately, and you can provide your own if you wish. However we have found it is always worthwhile following the chef's suggestions on wines, always.
