Chef Juan. Absolutely the best! My friends are still talking about it and I have posted it on Facebook. The food is the best ever. Michele P. Lake Worth, Fl. AuctionLadies.net
Chef Juan was wonderful from start to finish. We had Chef Juan do our rehearsal dinner at our home. He arrived in a timely manner and began cooking right away. Safety is a priority of mine and we were happy to see it was a priority of his as well. The food was delicious! When we walked into the party our mouths were watering. He also provided a very tasty fresh salad and dinner rolls. Once everything slowed down, he packed the food so it can still be consumed and left everything as clean as he found it. He also provided the plates and plasticware. We definitely recommend Chef Juan for any party. Cristina Deerfield Beach, Fl.
Last night we, along with 18 friends, enjoyed a wonderful dinner prepared by Chef Juan Montalvo. The pan of sumptuous paella was prepared right in front of us by Chef. The ingredients were fresh and the outcome was as pretty as a picture and delicious. Chef Montalvo was completely self sufficient and both set up and cleaned up. I recommend this wonderful event to everyone- simply hire Chef Montalvo then sit back and enjoy. Jill V. Parkland, FL.
I had the privilege to serve as chair of social committee at my building on the beach for a building party with 70 participants. We hired Juan. He and his staff were terrific. Food was terrific and exactly as advertised. Everyone loved it! Alan H. Highland Beach, FL.
Good Morning Juan and Mary….THANK YOU both so much for all of your assistance and professionalism on Friday night! Your paella was DELISH as always and everyone really enjoyed the evening and I think the number of “seconds” proved how good everything was!! As the hostess, I ate far less but really enjoyed having your paella for dinner last night when I had time to relax and enjoy it!!! Yummy! Also, a big “shout out” to Mary…what would we have done without you!!!?? Patti and I realized that my “labor intensive” recipes took far more time that we had expected and you “saved the day” Mary! Thank you again….it was a real pleasure working with both of you and we look forward to doing another Paella Party before the season ends!! Orrine & Warren & Bentley Boca Raton, Fl.
Juan was great and the food was excellent. Great experience! Jeremy, Royal Oak Hills, Boca Raton

To All…..Chef Juan did a party at our home for 26 dear friends……He certainly made a fabulous evening. He is a great personality, and combined with his “paella performance” it is a total entertaining package. The paella, as well as his tapas make a great evening. My wife and would recommend him with high honors……We had a great party! Thank you Chef Juan Craig & Melissa Jupiter, Fl.
Last evening Chef Juan arrived , unpacked , set up and went to work. Level by level he created a fabulous paella dinner. He is a one man wonder. The aroma filled our yard, good thing I invited close neighbors too. In an hour he was serving our guests with full plates of paella, salad and rolls. Many returned for seconds……what a hit. Before I knew it he walked in with a foiled tray of leftovers. He cleaned, repacked and was on his way. What a great, unique way to entertain a big group. Our guests were truly impressed. Thanks Chef Juan. Christine P. Palm Beach, Fl.

Cant wait to have them make a party for me again! Thank you Juan and Mary! Diane F. Boca Raton, Fl.

I go to many charity events and Chef Juan and Mary prepare the finest food I imagined. They duo prepares Paella in a variety of styles and they are all fantastic. I wish they had a restaurant as I would be a regular. Now I have to settle on finding what great causes they support to obtain a delicious meal. Gary H. Boca Raton,Fl.
Chef Juan is an amazing chef, cook, and host. Not only are his recipes delicious but they are healthy as well. I am a personal trainer and believe in the need for foods to not only be nutritious and low in fat but I also believe they need to taste good. A plain piece of boiled chicken with some spinach leaves on the side is not going to help anyone reach their goals. Chef Juan allows people to not only enjoy their meals but also keep on track for a healthy lifestyle. As if that were not enough, Chef Juan is also personable and charming to be around. He always has a smile on his face and his demeanor is friendly and welcoming. He catered my daughter’s 3rd party and was professional as well as courteous to all the guests, young and old alike. Thanks Chef Juan. Regards, Christina L. Weston,Fl.
The Hungry Cuban (Juan) catered my holiday party a few weeks ago. It was a wonderful experience. Juan was professional and the food and service was great. I was actually able to enjoy my guests. I will definitely use his services again in the future. Mayte Boca Raton, Fl.
Just wanted to share with people who have a love of good Cuban food. My husband I asked Chef Juan to cook a wonderful Cuban meal for family and friends at our home. We had eight guest and everyone loved the rice and pork dinner with very generous portions. No mess and no fuss…the only way to go! Bob & Cindy Boca Raton, Fl.
Chef Juan, this meal you prepared was simply scrumptious! You put together kale, roasted veggies and spices in a delicious way I shall not soon forget. The Sweet Potato Soup could have been dessert …yummy! And I believe you left the kitchen cleaner than it was before you came! Thanks Juan! Deborah Best
It was FABULOUS. Everyone was blown away how good it was. You made it a special night. Thanks again. Gary & Eleanor Wellington, Fl.
My husband & I (together with our family and friends) were all so extremely pleased with the warm and professional service extended us by THE HUNGRY CUBAN himself, Chef Juan Montalvo. Not to mention the mouth-watering entertainment provided by watching him meticulously prepare his sumptuous paella! Truly a unique experience enjoyed by all. And of course … the final product was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! Cecilia B. Wellington, Florida
Thanks Chef Juan for donating your time and talent to the Epilepsy Foundation. We had a great time. The food was absolutely fabulous. Honestly, the best paella I have ever had. Thanks again and lots of success. Maria S. Wellington, Fl.
