We would like to thank Suze and Philip for organising our wedding on 30th March 2012; we really couldn't have done it without you and your invaluable knowledge and support. From the time of our initial contact through to the post wedding formalities, we were thoroughly impressed with the stress free way every single detail was handled. We initially thought we had a good idea of what we wanted but inevitably changed our minds over the weeks and months prior. Through what must have seemed like endless questions and changes of mind, Suze and Philip always gave us prompt and honest guidance
which took away all the stress and filled us with so much confidence even before we arrived on Bonaire and met them. We met up the day after we arrived on the island to run through all the paperwork which was done in a very relaxed but professional manner. Suze and
Philip instantly left us without any worries about the process of publishing the Bans, the wedding details and the ceremony the following Friday. Our ceremony took place on Sorobon Beach. A stunning setting, very private
and the day turned out to be flawless.

Suze and Philip's thoughtful attention to detail for the actual ceremony, the bouquet of local flowers, the champagne and the wonderful cake all made for a wonderful day, exactly how we wanted it to be.

We would also like to thank Barbel from B-Beauty Productions, for creating Lynn's hair and Tim from Fish-Eye Photo, for the unique, stunning photographs taken at various locations on the island.

Thank you also for the personal gift, it was a lovely surprise which we will treasure and it will soon have a special place at our home here in the UK so we are constantly reminded about our special day and the wonderful, kind people (and now new friends) we met and helped us during our stay on Bonaire

Regards and best wishes,
Simon and Lynn, UK

We are repeat customers. Philip has cooked for our group of 8 (4 adults and 4 teens) on our March 2010 and March 2012 trips to Bonaire. We ate out every night at the island's fine restaurants, but no meal could match that which he created for us. Philip takes the time to meet with you beforehand to come up with a menu to suit everyone. Even the wines were perfect! Thank you Philip for another outstanding evening!

Het was een onvergetelijke ervaring 3 februari j.l.,het feestelijke diner ter gelegenheid van Marijke's 65e verjaardag. Alles was tot in de puntjes verzorgd, mede dankzij Bärbel's tafelversiering. Bij verschillende restaurants gegeten, maar Phillip wint het van allemaal. TOP. Nogmaals hartelijk dank voor deze grootse culinaire ervaring. Groetjes, Marijke en Evert.

As part of our third trip to Bonaire in February 2012, we had Philip come in and cook dinner for us. The experience was even more than we had anticipated. He arrived timely and organized and prepared a delicious dinner of fresh fish, grilled vegetables, homemade pasta with a delicious sauce. We also had an awesome salad and gourmet dessert. It was so lovely to sit on our patio, listening to the surf and have someone serve us the same type of dinner as we'd have in a restaurant. He set a beautiful table and served our wine. There was a lot of food and we had lots of leftovers. He left the kitchen cleaner than when he came. All in all it was an experience we thoroughly enjoyed and would definitely repeat on our next trip to Bonaire.

Beste Suze en Philip,

We zijn inmiddels alweer een paar weken in (het koude) Nederland en denken nog iedere dag aan onze bruiloft op Bonaire! Wat hebben we genoten, de dag was echt perfect en precies zoals wij voor ogen hadden.

De locatie was echt prachtig, we hebben ons geen moment zorgen hoeven maken of alles wel goed geregeld was, jullie zijn een geweldig team! Ook Tim en Bärbel hebben fantastisch werk geleverd, niets dan lof.

Het afscheid viel ons heel erg zwaar en we komen zo snel mogelijk weer terug.

Nogmaals bedankt voor alles, het is echt een dag om nooit te vergeten.

Harm & Nina

Vrijdag de 13e, een mooie dag voor een uitstekende verwennerij van de smaakpapillen. Gezeten met goede vrienden, direct aan zee met een prachtig gedecoreerde tafel genoten van Philips' kookkunsten. Zo is Bonaire nóg fijner en dit zal niet het laatste diner zijn! Het was top. Masha Danki! :!clap:

Thank you for permitting me to comment on the wonderful experience we just had in Bonaire. We had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful chef, Philip Joukes, who agreed to cook a special meal in our rented villa in Bonaire. What a treat! A special indulgence indeed! It was the ultimate luxury to return from a day of fantastic diving, to be able to shower, put on clean clothes, and just sit down to relish a very special evening.

Philip was very conscientious about the planned menu, having communicated by email in advance, and also personally visited us the day before to work out minor details to our great satisfaction! We were treated to a lovely table, incredible salad, fresh grilled vegetables, and a locally caught yahoo with a delicious sauce. After, Suze had prepared a trilogy of red cake, raspberry chocolate and an apple dessert. So decadent!

Philp interspersed this great service with comical anecdotes and a history of the island, along with tips for site-seeing. Philip is a wonderful and entertaining host indeed.

We don't know what we ever did to deserve this evening, but we cherished every moment.

Dan and Mary Adams
