Actually, the entry below should say March 2013. Philip cooked for us in 2012 and 2010 as well!

Another excellent meal courtesy of Philip!!We were a group of 8 visiting Bonaire in March 2012(2 families in Bonaire with 4 teenage girls). Philip has prepared meals for us all on two previous trips also. Again, he did not disappoint! Philip is very prompt, reliable and organized. He met with us in advance at a scheduled time to discuss our special evening. He arrived on time, with a wonderful assistant (Yolanda) who prepared our table and served us wine. For the adults, we a wonderful pumpkin soup, and a variety of local seafoods (some smoked fish and fresh tuna) The children enjoyed soup, salad, and pasta with chicken. We had a superb chocolate surprise dessert. The kitchen was spotless at the end of the night, with leftovers in the fridge. This was our favourite meal on the island. I highly recommend Philip's services!!

My three friends and myself visited Bonaire the end of January.
We decided to have Phil prepare two dinners during the week for us.
Philip exceeded our expectations not only from the perfectly prepared food but the service level describing each course perfectly and having the able assistance of Yolonda we had two perfect dinners.
I would highly recommend Phip, no worries about communication, food choices etc.
Everything will be perfect.

I vacationed in Bonaire with friends and family in Dec/Jan 2013 and had the pleasure of meeting Philip and his lovely wife Suze on our trip. They prepared a marvelous Christmas eve dinner for our entire family (children included) - the main courses were fantastic and the desserts were out of this world. Throughout the week, Philip would check in with our group to make sure we had everything we needed. On more than one occasion, he would go out of his way to find us wine, fish, and other things that were hard for us to find on the island. Our trip would not have been the same without him. Thank you Philip and Suze! We hope to see you next time we are in Bonaire.

Hello, I want to recommend Phillip's Cooking! I was part of a larger group, and I have some specific food allergies. Philip could not have been nicer about finding delicious alternatives for me within the larger meal. He was very understanding, he was clearly more than willing to come up with some yummy things that I could eat, and he and his assistant were wonderful when they served the meal. He found some great alternatives that were gluten-free, and did not make any kind of extra "fuss" publicly over my dietary needs. I also want to say my husband and I thought his preparation of tuna was the best we've ever had. The tuna was cut and prepared in a totally different way that we've ever seen (more of a tenderloin than a steak) and the tuna was super moist and fantastic. Kind of changed my opinion about tuna, to be honest, from ho-hum to delicious. I think Philip, his wife and his assistant did a superb job!

Woensdag 13 februari: Philip komt weer voor ons koken. Wij zijn met een groep van 7 personen. Aangezien Philip al vaker voor ons gekookt heeft, zijn de verwachtingen natuurlijk hoog gespannen. Wat gaat hij er dit keer van bakken? Is het weer net zo lekker als alle voorgaande keren? Nou, dat was het zeker. Jeetje, wat kan die man koken en iedere keer heeft hij weer hele aparte gerechtjes. Alles kraakvers, prachtig opgemaakt en het belangrijkste: SUPER LEKKER. En laten wij vooral het toetje niet vergeten te melden: Suze had een overheerlijke taart gebakken met verse vruchten erin en je raad het al, dat was weer SMULLEN. Philip en zijn charmante hulp Henna hebben ons weer een enorm leuke avond bezorgd, waarvoor onze dank. Wij kijken uit naar een volgend avondje Philip’s Cooking.

Groetjes Jan, Niovis, moeder Jan, André, Babs, Lambèr en Jacqueline

Beste Philip,

Wat een verrassing dat jij voor ons kwam koken. Wij wisten alleen dat we 'thuis' moesten zijn die avond...Krijgen we ineens een privékok tijdens onze vakantie op Bonaire. Het was helemaal geweldig. De tafel mooi gedekt, mooi servies, lekkere wijn en heerlijk gegeten. (zelfs ik, die niet van vis hou normaal gesproken) En niks was te gek, je hebt zelfs je vrouw nog langs laten komen om vlees te brengen speciaal voor mij, en dan eet ik uiteindelijk de vis :o.
We hebben echt genoten!!!!
Ontzettend bedankt voor deze topavond.

Hartelijke groeten van Ellen, Jolanda, Bianca en Cindy

Beste Philip, Het is je weer gelukt. Het kerstdiner voor onze afdeling was geweldig! Heerlijke gerechten, perfect verzorgd en een prachtige tafelsetting. Precies de juiste ingredienten voor een gezellige avond die meteen ons nieuwe huis inwijdde. We zouden bijna elk jaar gaan verhuizen om weer een excuus te hebben voor een avond met Philip :)

Dear Philip,

It was a real treat having you hosting our diner party. Our crew had worked really hard for the project What's Bonaire Nature Worth? We have been shooting a documentary and giving a presentation and workshop, therefore we all were excited and tired at the same time. Your excellent service and enjoyable food was a real gift to our group and made it a memorable souvenir.

Thank you,

Dear Philip and Suze,

We’d like to thank you very much, all of your services what we got at the begining of september. I know that you were a little bit affraid about our language, but we understood eachother, and you were very kind and patient with us.It was one of our best trip what we ever had and you helped us to make it unforgettable.
The wedding was perfectly organized, thank you Suze, you were very helpful to make and choose the perfect bouquet, and the cake and about everything. It was like a dream.
We would like to thank’s all of your Philips services, the dinners were brilliant and very delicious. If I can suggest for the next visitors, you have to try the mango cake, the curry and also the mushroom soup with truffle. The wedding dinner was amazing, we got 4 courses!
If we go to Bonaire in the future, we would like to use your services again.

Thanks again, you are fantastic!!

Warm Regards,

Timi, Lajos, Böbi, Mark and our big Hungarian family and friends....
