"Engaging Alimento to cater for our Christmas party allowed us to have a casual do in our own home with excellent food and very pleasant, helpful waiting staff. The food was tasty and well-presented and even though it was a casual meal we all felt we had something special. The young ladies that came out to waitress were well-presented, they worked well and were willing to help with anything to make the evening run well. The highpoints were the willingness of your staff to help, their lovely natures and the scrumptious food, there were no low points."

"Alimento has supported BNI with outstanding service both with the catering and setting up specifically for our weekly meetings. Catherine and Hamish your are both very accommodating, courteous and respectful of our needs. Thank you. The food is always of an excellent quality and with a wide variety on offer. The venue provides us with privacy and space to conduct our meetings without interruptions and with the benefit of easy parking. The staff are just great and always extremely friendly despite our early starts. We have tried several venues over the past six years and it is extremely difficult to find a venue as good as Alimento."
Trish Peddle, BNI Tauranga Chapter

"Alimento's group breakfast service was really good for me. Service by your staff was awesome. They are unobtrusive. Have a smile on their face and get the food out in a timely, yet quiet manner. I got some great comments from people about the food. They were pleased with the quality and the range of choice. Because you can sit up to 40 people (in the private room) it's perfect for me - the room's an ideal size. From holding this one talk at Alimento I have since been invited to do two more talks. After my talk I booked five new clients and then received further bookings during the week for several more new clients. I'd already like to book another for next month. Thanks again."
