  • Dear Phil,I am so grateful for your efforts regarding my 80th birthday celebration last Friday evening at Sandy by the Bay.Not only was I thrilled with every aspect, but many of my guests have written or rang since. Universally they were wrapped in the venue, with amazing sunset and views, the food (which you helped me select), the beverages and the friendly staff.Altogether it made for an amazing and most enjoyable evening. Many thanks and keep up the good work.

  • Hi Phil,Thank you for your amazing catering and attention to detail at our daughters Bat-Mitzvah. The food quality was simply outstanding and the quantity was plentiful. Not one guest went home hungry (quite the opposite I suspect). In fact by the time our guests had eaten their entrees they were already full. But when the main courses were served, the meals looked so good that they just had to try it all and then push through the delightful deserts.Our guests, friends and family raved about the food then, and still do to this day.Congratulations again on your quality, caring and attention to detail, that helped make the night one of our most memorable.All the best.

  • In September I had my 50th birthday party at “Sandy by the Bay” (the Sandringham Football Club).I would like to sincerely thank Phil and his wonderful staff for a great night. The food was of the highest quality and an amazing variety. It was being served all night, so no-one was left hungry. I was getting compliments all night about the fantastic food and service. And nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They even remembered which of my guests were vegetarians and served them accordingly.From our first phone conversation to the end of my party, Phil was nothing but professional and accommodating. His ideas and suggestions were fantastic. He clearly loves what he does and that shows through in Phil wanting your party/function to be the best.I would also like to say a big thank you to Anita for her attention to detail and for being so helpful and obliging.

  • Hi Anita & Phil,This is the second time we’ve organised our Annual Awards Night at the Sandy by the Bay and both have been a success.We thank Anita for her availability and always responding promptly to any queries during the organisation process. On the night Greg made sure everything went smoothly, the staff was friendly and efficient and the equipment provided is professional and up to date.Working with Phil and his team is also an absolute pleasure. Phil catered for all types of dietary requirements and made excellent menu suggestions based on his experience, making his food a perfect match for our guests. Portion sizes, presentation and taste would definitely give him an immunity pin on Masterchef!!! We would recommend him without hesitation.

  • To Whom it may concern,I held a fundraising lunch at ‘Sandy By the Bay’ in October.The entire experience was simplified by the professionalism inherent in Phil’s team, from the initial menu design through to swift and confident implementation on the day. Not only was the food delicious, but the delivery itself was seamless, with special dietary needs catered for beautifully along with quick and coordinated delivery of artfully plated meals.The room was dressed to perfection, thanks to Anita and her organisation skills. All this plus great views of the bay, I could not have asked for more.I am delighted to recommend the fantastic experience provided by Phil and his team, as I’m certain they made a huge contribution to the success of my event.
