Catered my daughter's 4th birthday. Everybody loved the food and I heard many compliments about it. The team were punctual, set up quickly, and I didn't have to do a thing. The value for money is excellent given the added service on top. A delightful team to work with and extremely professional. Thank you.

Francesca’s cakes were incredibly helpful throughout the entire event ensuring the food got delivered and eaten by providing ppl to assist the guests with drinks and cake. They were accommodating with requests for a variety of food choices they could supply and the price. All the guests complimented me on the food and drinks.

Food was good especially the red been soup fried chicken. Curry was well cooked and flavoursome only the rice and peas was slightly over cooked which was the reason for 4 star. Staff were friendly and attentive so they would get 5 stars.
I would recommended them and use them again

From start to finish Melissa was so helpful coming up with ideas .on the day she turned up set out tables and decorated them for us and buy the time we come back everything was up and running .everyone loved the food and went back for seconds and thirds .
Melissa was alway there if tea or coffee was needed to be made would do it and hand it out going above and beyond to make mums party the success it was.
And when it was all over they cleared away as well .would recommend Melissa to everyone

Mel and her team were fantastic! I hired them to cater for my grandmas wake. Mel was happy to cater for our every need. She arrived on time and did everything she said she would do. I didn’t need to worry about a thing. Her team were helpful and attentive. They made a stressful occasion a whole lot easier. I would highly recommend and should the need arise I will be hiring again! Thanks Mel x

Experienced caterers with an exceptional work ethic. We used Francesca’s catering for my daughters birthday party and the food and service was fantastic. We asked them to come back again 2 days later to cook our Christmas dinner and it was the best Christmas dinner we’ve ever had! Will definitely be using them again for our future events!

Melissa and her team handled the catering for the reception after our father's memorial service. She handled everything efficiently and in a very pleasant friendly manner. From the very first telephone discussions she understood what we wanted and what could work regarding quantities, mixture of food avaiable to make a balanced buffet within our budget. Her pricing was competitive and we would be happy to recommend to anyone. Thank you Melissa for your(and your team's) help.

Francescascatering was hired for our Dear Mum's Wake and they were extremely organised and were compassionate and tentative to our needs. Their service went above and beyond what my Family and I expected. The food was setup and presented really well and tasted great. Our family and friends present also commented on how good their service and food were. We would definitely recommend them. Thank you

Review of Francescascateringcakes by Ronan

Francescascateringcakes catered for approx 50 people for a special occasion we were having and did an outstanding job; we had 2 brief phone calls with Mellisa who took the details and made helpful suggestions for food we could have.
They arrived early and set up by themselves, bringing all equipment, food heaters and plates etc.,
The food was amazing, and several of the guests commented on who great it was, particularly the rice and the chicken, which was still juicy and succulent and beautifully seasoned.
The staff were excellent, serving everyone and even helping to clear away glasses and cups; they helped us box up the left over food, which there was more than enough of, with lots of people having seconds.
Overall I could not recommend Francescascateringcakes and Mellissa enough, and will definitely be hiring them again when we are next planning a gathering.

Francescascateringcakes catered for my Father in law's funeral and the experience couldn't have gone more smoothly. From the minute we arrived at the church hall where the reception was, Melissa and her team had the bar set up and the food ready. They were very professional and provided delicious food. We chose a hot vegetarian and a selection of cold dishes and 2 desserts. The tables were cleared and they went beyond the call of duty with the washing up!

Absolutely wonderful, impeccable and affordable service.
I used them for my husband's small birthday do in our garden. As promised, and apart from the actual BBQ, they provided absolutely everything required for a lovely BBQ, in good portions and deliciously cooked. Sam and the lovely lady with her (sorry cannot remember her name), were simply wonderful. Melissa sent everything we needed and more! As a perk, she sent us two trays of pudding which we didn't order and they were fantastic.
The birthday cake was also made by Melissa, very nicely decorated.
Thank you very much for a lovely BBQ. Will definitely use them again.

Excellent would highly recommend Melissa and her waiting staff. Everything from the first phone call to end was brilliant. Used Melissa to cater for a funeral, from the moment Melissa and waiting staff arrive everything was taken care of to the setting up of the hall, the excellent food and lovely deserts and the serving of the drinks to the clearing away. I really felt very comfortable leaving everything to Melissa and I could just concentrate on the guests.
