"A massive thank you to Helen, Carlos and the Las Tapitas team!
They catered for our wedding in August and the food was incredible. So many guests commented on how delicious the food was, it went down so well. In addition to the food, they are the loveliest people.
Communication was brilliant from day one and they made the process so easy and enjoyable. They were helpful with dietary requirements and were very flexible with the menu choices.
We would highly recommend them, they're brilliant.
Thank you again for making our day so wonderful!"

"Thank you for being a part of our wedding and helping make it such a special day. It was brilliant to have you and the food helped make it the most memorable day of our lives!
The food was absolutely incredible and the service outstanding. We got so many compliments, especially that it was lovely to have something different at a wedding; in particular the theatre of having it served to the table. We’d recommend you to anyone, for any event. We can’t wait to hire you again for our next event.
All our love

"We cannot recommend Las Tapitas more. We booked Carlos and Helen for our wedding on the 1st July, 18 months previous. The communication was top notch throughout, always so happy to help and advise. The paella on the day was the best, and so many guests commented on this, as well as on how lovely Carlos and Helen were, too! They really made our day. Thank you both so much. Xx
Also just want to add how perfect is it to be able to book a vegan option too, so easily! The fact the paellas are gluten, dairy and nut free is also a dream when catering for a number of guests! Xxx"

"The Las Tapitas team did an incredible job at catering our wedding at the beginning of June. The food was beyond delicious and our guests have spoken of little else since the event! Everyone absolutely loved the tapas and paella. The garlic prawns and Moorish meatballs were a particular highlight.
The team cooked the Paella out in the garden at the venue which was part of the entertainment for the guests, and they then served it on sharing plates at the long tables on our request. It made for a wonderful informal atmosphere that encouraged people to interact in a relaxed way.
As well as the food being a show-stopper, working with Las Tapitas was so wonderfully straight-forward. They are very experienced in running large scale events and it shows. From the beginning of the process they were professional, calm and so reassuring, and the day itself ran without a hitch.
The food service was brilliant and done with infectious enthusiasm which ensured everyone was beaming throughout. We couldn't have asked for more, and would recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone looking for superb food, quality and fun for an excellent price. Amazing."

"Helen & Carlos exceeded our expectations, with their communication, service and participation on the day of our wedding. All our guests raved about the delicious paella and friendliness of the couple, some guests even returned for seconds! It was a pleasure and joy meeting Helen & Carlos, would highly recommend!"
(Lindsey and Betty 20/06/2023)
"A huge thank you to Las Tapitas for their catering on our wedding day - the canapes and paella were so delicious, and the serving of the paella in the big pans was really unique and visually interesting. Portions were generous and we were enjoying leftover paella the next day! Carlos and Helen were incredibly professional throughout our interactions, from initial planning, tasting visit and on the day. They are also very kind and friendly, which just made it feel very relaxed on our big day.
We received so many comments from guests on how brilliant the food was.
We would recommend them to anyone looking for a big pan catering service for a special event. Thanks again!"

"Would highly recommend using Las Tapitas. We hired Carlos and Helen for our wedding, and we and the guest loved both them and the food! The paella was the best I've ever had, and we had really generous portions with the mains and starters. Were so glad we picked them for our wedding. Cost and service were so much more reasonable then some other quotes I received as well. They were really flexible with the menu as well which we really appreciated."

"Where to begin? We came across Carlos and Helen when we noticed that they had catered at our wedding venue before, and knew straight away that we wanted to book them for our wedding -- from our earliest emails they were kind, supportive, and enthusiastic (these are people who love what they do, and are excellent at it!!). Their menu was full of exciting options, and on the day the food was amazing -- delicious canapés, tapas, and giant paella dishes brought to the table: this was a real feast, and our guests still comment on how amazing the food was. But they also comment on how amazing and friendly THEY were. To say that Carlos and Helen went above and beyond is an understatement -- not only did they guide us on menu choices, they also recommended other (amazing) suppliers, were always available to answer any questions and helped make our day run smoothly. All we can say is BOOK THEM - we are already thinking of other events we could book them for. Thank you so much, Carlos & Helen!!"

"Las Tapitas were the perfect wedding caterers for us, absolutely delicious food that all our guests raved about, and Carlos and Helen went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly! Leading up to the big day they helped with all of our queries and accommodated for dietary requirements of our guests. Our guests also loved that they could watch the food being made, it really added to the occasion! Thank you so much Carlos and Helen!"
(15/10/2022 Emily and Zoe)
"Can not recommend Carlos and Helen enough. They catered for our wedding in Sept 2022 and were just incredible. We had so many comments throughout the day about how excellent the food was - the phase "the best paella I have ever had" was frequently used. One GF guest said she had she is very used to being relegated to a secondary meal or option and has never felt so included before.
Carlos and Helen were so wonderful to interact with, both in planning stages and on the day. They made the whole process so stress free. They played a bit part in making our day exactly how we envisioned.
Thank you so much Carlos and Helen
(15/09/2022 Rosie & Will)
"Carlos and Helen catered for over 100 people at our wedding on 10 July 2022, and they were absolutely incredible to work with, both in the run up to the event and even more so on the day. When we were on the hunt caterers, all we knew was that we wanted our food to be delicious, easy to serve and something that reflected how we hoped our day would be - authentic, super fun but also laid back and making everyone feel at ease.
Carlos and Helen absolutely nailed it every step of the way, providing the most amazing options for canapés, starters and two incredible paella dishes for guests to choose from, full of flavour and colour (but all totally natural!). They were easily able to cater for vegan/veggie/gluten free options and everything was just perfect. Carlos and Helen provided so much more than show-stopping, delicious food… their experience and expertise in running events shone through and they were able to help us with so many things during the planning stage, and always in such a chilled out way that was very reassuring and helpful."

"Carlos and Helen catered our 120 person wedding and I cannot recommend them enough. They were super responsive in the build up to the wedding, happily agreeing to changing timings as our plans moved around, even right up until the morning of the wedding. They arrived bang on time and cooked up the most incredible two vegan paellas, with lovely salads go with them. Our guests were so complimentary about the food, and I can vouch for the fact that it was one of the tastiest paellas Ive ever eaten. The tapas buffet at the start of the wedding was also delicious. Not only was the food amazing but they are both super friendly and were amazing with our guests. If you want zero hassle and extremely tasty and good value food then book em' up! Cheers."

"Carlos and Helen catered for our wedding and I cannot recommend them enough. The food was incredible. Our guest loved the theatre behind the the cooking of the paella. Carlos and Helen were amazing with our guests on the day and catered for the dietary requirements that we had.
They were really easy to work with in the build up to the wedding and worked with our venue to get set up so it was hassle free for us. Our guests were very complimentary about the food. Even the guest who “don’t like paella”, tried it and loved it. The tapas canapés went down well and they were just all round brilliant"

"Carlos and Helen,
Thank you both so much for the weekend - the food was utterly delicious and the feedback from everyone has been incredibly positive, you guys were amazing, thank you! Honestly though it wasn't just about the food, the service and way that you interacted with the guests and became part of the day was just amazing.
The day surpassed whatever we could have hoped it was and we are so grateful for the role you guys played - thank you! The extra tastings and our last minute changes that you had no problem with made everything so easy.
Thank you both so so much, we just need another event where we can get you guys to cater again! "

"Helen and Carlos absolutely made our wedding day such a success! Right from the beginning of our wedding journey, Las Tapitas have been fully involved with our decisions and were so helpful with their advice and suggestions.
Helen and Carlos are fantastic with their communications - nothing is ever too much hassle, and they really work hard to build relationships with their clients. Whenever we had a question, they answered quickly, usually with a ‘yes’ or if not, an alternative idea that would work even better.
On the day, the food was INCREDIBLE - we had ordered canapés, tapas and paella and all of it was equally perfect, and there was so much of it! We have had so many amazing comments from our wedding guests on how different but amazing the food was (several have said it was the ‘best wedding food’ they had had!) .
For any couples that want something different on their wedding day, love good Spanish cuisine delivered with a very charismatic smile, Las Tapitas is for you. We are already looking forward to reliving the experience on our first anniversary
Thank you again Helen and Carlos - you have just been fantastic! "

We loved their charismatic and friendly service and would certainly recommend them to anyone. Thank you Carlos and Helen! "

Thoroughly recommended and will engage again given the opportunity "

"Carlos catered for my Spanish-themed birthday party and provided us with a selection of delicious canapés, a classic chicken and chorizo paella and a vegetarian paella. Everybody loved the food and its authentic Spanish flavour - even the native Spaniards that were celebrating with us! Carlos was full of energy and entertainment and when asked, talked with passion about the ingredients and the traditional way of cooking paella. Everything went according to plan and we were absolutely delighted. We would wholeheartedly recommend!"
