I don't know where to begin....Tastebuds / Mary were amazing from start to finish. We had a group of 19 ranging in age from 5 to 55 and both dairy and gluten allergies to consider too. Tastebuds designed and prepared all of our dinners for a week (including a delicious New Year's Eve meal of homemade sangria and paella), and delivered them nightly to a home we stayed at in Rincon. Each dinner was also accompanied by a beautiful assortment of fruit for our breakfast the next day. Each meal was creative, delicious and reflective of the island. Everyone young and old LOVED each bite. In order to accommodate our gluten and dairy free need, most meals were prepared in a way that we all could eat everything with just a few exceptions. Mary could NOT have been more accommodating or pleasant. Her communication was top notch, her warm personality was welcomed every night and the food was deliciously unforgettable! I'd tell you our favorite meal, but we all agreed that every one of them was special in it's own way. She truly made our vacation! We will never return to Rincon without using Tastebuds again!

As we planned our destination wedding in Rincon, Puerto Rico we had some reservations about the planning, such as use of local resources and the actual process for the marriage license.
Mary Gilmartin was referred to us by the owners of the villas we rented. After an initial interview with Mary we felt more comfortable about the entire wedding and used her as our wedding caterer and coordinator.
Mary was very helpful and a good resource for an additional information. As with any wedding, there were a few changes and Mary was accommodating and went beyond her responsibility to assist us with several other issues not related to the wedding.
The table arrangements were very beautiful, matching the colors with elegance. The main dishes consisted of local cuisine and had an excellent flavor. She helped us to create wonderful memories and we would do it again, but not without her assistance.

I can't say enough about the services that Mary and Tastebuds provided for my very tight budget wedding in Rincon, Puerto Rico. Being that I was on a incredibly tight budget, she was respectful and helped through out the planning of all of the event details. She communicated with me before and when I arrived in Rincon and made it clear that I could call on her whenever I needed anything. When the wedding came, I was astonished at the additional details she added. From the napkin rings to setting up my table decor and just staying during the wedding to make sure everything was going well, really made a nervous bride feel at ease. Being that I was in MN during the whole planning of the wedding I didn't get to taste the food until the wedding and I was incredibly pleased (especially the rice and beans :)) My destination wedding turned out to be everything I dreamed of if not more! Thank you Mary and Tastebuds for your responsive services and wonderful attention to detail.

We can’t say enough GREAT things about Tastebuds and Mary Gilmartin’s eye for perfection!!! She arranged our daughter’s Baptism celebration in our vacation home in Rincon. At first it was very hard trying to find an event coordinator in Rincon who was reasonable and reputable all the way from California. Mary coordinated every detail for the event with care and flawlessly! She was a delight to work with! She is very friendly and accommodating. Her expertise helped prepare for a great event. The waiting staff was friendly and very professional to work with!!! We will definitely hire her services again in the future. SHE IS THE BEST!

IF YOU CHOOSE MARY & TASTEBUDS FOR YOUR WEDDING CELEBRATION OR ANY SPECIAL OCCASION YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! GURANTEED :-)

Best Wishes

When we first came to Mary we had very specific budgetary requests and she delivered on them. We want to highlight her for her choices in some of the additional vendors we needed, including housing for our guests. She was invaluable in helping us do reconnaissance for our event and kept a constant communication going throughout our entire relationship. The food that she cooked for our wedding was on point and the cupcakes were beyond charming. She was so heartfelt in her happiness for us.

This was one of the most thought of reception wedding ceremonies I have ever been to. The Venue, The Villa on Maria's Beach, was a fantastic beachfront Villa that provided all the atmosphere that you could imagine. Classic Events & Tastebuds we're the wedding planning company & they handled everything that makes a destination wedding successful. The beach set up for the ceremony was beautify, the flower arrangements & center pieces we're absolutely amazing with so many exotic flowers that brought out the color theme of the event.

When the ceremony was over we we're greeting by trays of yummy appetizers that included coconut shrimp, ceviche cups of local fish, and a fantastic meze platter that included a wonderful eggplant & other vegetables that we're fit for a feast. The main course of roasted pork was prepared on a open spit & cut right there at the location, giving everyone a show as the hard wood smoky smells floated through the air.

After dinner the entertainment began with a rocking DJ that keep the crowd going until midnight. We we're very pleased with all the services that Classic Events provided & have nothing but praise for Mary & her staff. We will definitely recommend Classic Events to anybody looking for a destination wedding in beautiful Rincon, Puerto Rico, we're the Sunsets are amazing & the beaches are pristine.

We were a little hesitant booking a caterer without a tasting beforehand but Mary Gilmartin delivered everything we could have hoped for. While other caterers that we were looking at in Puerto Rico were difficult, if not impossible to communicate with from afar (this was a destination wedding), Mary was easy to contact, quick to reply and understanding when we had last minute changes or requests. She also drove quite a ways to come to the isolated beach house we rented. The food was delicious and the decorations they provided were gorgeous. We had pork and mahi mahi for our main courses, both very tasty, though my favorite was the rice! Both she and her waitstaff were professional, friendly, kind, and accommadating. I highly recommend her for any event.

Mary planned our wedding in Rincon & she made it even better than we ever hoped it could be. We highly recommend her for your next event - she will go above & beyond to make sure your event is fantastic. We were planning a small ceremony & reception for 25 guests on a tight budget. Mary recommended a photographer, musicians, an officiant, restaurants, & things to do during our trip. From the day we arrived she helped us with everything we needed, getting our marriage license, making salon appointments, shopping in town, etc.

Mary set up a rehearsal dinner and we had a few unexpected guests in our party, but she handled the situation like a pro, shuffling some seats around to make room for everyone. The table was decorated for Valentine’s Day & the food was delicious, from the sangria to the homemade tres leches cake.

At Mary’s suggestion we had the wedding ceremony at El Faro lighthouse and she took care of everything to make a romantic sunset wedding that we couldn’t have imagined without her. The gazebo was decorated beautifully and Mary even had drinks and appetizers to keep our guests busy as we took pictures. The reception decorations at the villa were amazing - beautiful conch shell centerpieces with brightly colored flowers, lanterns, lights, shells and candles. Mary incorporated some of our personalized items into her plan w/ no problems and it was the perfect mix of beachy, elegant & fun, exactly what we wanted for our party. The food was incredible. We had dorado w/ bacon, roasted pork, yucca, potatoes, and rice & beans. We had 2 vegetarians & a few food allergies among our guests and everyone was able to have a delicious meal. Due to a power outage Mary had to improvise & grill the fish next to the pool at the reception, but it turned out great. The cake was perfect, coconut cake w/pineapple filling & a fresh flower cascade. Beautiful and yummy! Mary’s staff was very professional, thanks to everyone who helped make our wedding so awesome!

Mary of Tastebuds provided outstanding service for our wedding and comes highly recommended. Everything was communicated to us very well, expectations were exceeded, and the entire staff was very professional. Mary went out of her way to help us shop in town, made great recommendations, and was there to assist with the setup. The food was incredible. My favorite was the coconut-crusted whitefish...wow. I was nervous about a couple menu items being too exotic for some. My best man has the palate of a 5 year old, and watching him try and enjoy everything was great. Every single person enjoyed their dinner and apps. And I couldn't say enough nice things about Mary. Mary was genuinely happy for us, gave big hugs and takes great pride in her job. Thank you so much Mary, for contributing to the best day of our lives.

BAR NONE, THIS IS WHO YOU GO TO FOR A WEDDING CATERER.

Mary is the caterer I would choose over ANY in PR...she was the only one to get back to me within a day. This is not only important as a busy nursing student who had no time to plan a wedding, but for someone who is looking to have high quality food for a competitive price. We searched for reasonably menus and only Mary's stood out as one that would allow us to customize our food desires.

She was reliable, quick to respond, and VERY, VERY, VERY flexible. When coming to PR to see our wedding venue, we were there only for 1 day. We had no time to get a tasting, so Mary CAME TO OUR HOTEL before our flight and gave us our tasting right there! I couldn't believe how service oriented she is. No one even in NYC would go out of there way to please a client.

Then we had a crazy request in hot PR - ice cream cake. Even though Rincon and El Rio Grande are on opposite sides of the island, Mary assured me that the ice cream cake would be a hit - AND IT WAS!

Brides and Grooms, take my advice: If you want guaranteed great food on your wedding day at your budget, go with Tastebuds PR.

Thank you Mary and your lovely staff for making Nathan and I feel so at ease and giving our guests a genuine taste of PR!

I was not a guest, but shooting pictures for the family and they were nice enough to invite me to the table to partake in this lovely dinner.

I must say that i was very impressed by the quality of the food. It was delicious, served hot and presented nicely. Also, the tables were set and decorated in an elegant but a casual island style.

Kudos to Mary Gilmartin and Tastebuds Catering.

I recently had my wedding in Anasco, PR on 7/14/2013. Mary Gilmartin was in charge of my wedding planning. Being a a teacher myself I like to plan, so handing my planning over to someone else was very hard for me. Mary did a great job in listening to my needs, and wants. She found a wonderful venue, and decorated it to the 9's! My ceremony set up was beautiful and romantic on the beach, as I had dreamed of since I was a small girl. The server she had were attentive, and the food was delicious. There were small parts of the wedding that didnt go as we had planned, but no wedding can be perfect!!!! Overall, I was very happy with my experience and if I were to hold another party that needed planning in PR. I for sure would hire Mary and her company to handle the planning for me. This time, with more ease that things will go my way :)

The food was good but they were extremely Late!! The bridal party and I didnt get to eat on time because of that
Everyone was starving at church!!! Also never received a refund for the 2 hours of more of lateness, I paid for 2 waiters extra to make sure there was enough help!!! The contract said that food was to be served from 12 to 6 pm !!! Didn't receive food until 2pm
The guests complained to me about the poor service
Also there was a lot of food left over, as per bridal party, don't know what happened to that either!!
As per Mary Gilmartin, drinks are not provided therefore I went out of my way and bought 4 cases of water bottles and 12 liters soda bottles for guests to have to drink, I and my husband had to carry everything by hand the night before the wedding... From store to hotel!!! Although aware that i bought all the drinks, the drinks were not put out until everyone was almost gone!! Everyone was Hot and Thirsty!!! Don't know what else to say!! This company needs to be more organized and on Time!! This shows lack of professionalism !!
Sorry about the bad review but I have to tell the truth!! I don't want other brides to suffer!!

Dear Giovanna, I am very upset to hear your review. Tastebuds, P.R. and Classic Events have a beautiful reputation built on hard work and our clients wishes first and foremost. I do believe that there was a lot of miscommunication at the hotel the day of your wedding. I was following orders given to me by yor wedding planner, Maria Lugo. She had told me to prepare the food to be served at 4:00P.M. Your future husban,d his groomsmen, your Mother and Father and Aunt all came to me and asked for food to be served them at 1:00P.M. I served them in the dining room and I was not aware of any drinks available nor were there any ice or glasses. My servers were ready to assist your guests at 4:P.M. You had not mentioned anything to me about drinks or ice or glasses. I asked the hotel employees and the wedding planner and no one seemed to know anything. You only paid for 2 servers to assist your guests and we were there for 6 hours waiting for their arrival. I think you are mistaken on some of your remarks. I do agree that your guests were very hot and thirsty. It was not a very good ides to subject your guests who were very formally dressed to attend a light lunch on the rooftop of the hotel. I think the courtyard and dining room would havee been a more appropriate setting, but that was your choice. As far as your having to carry water and sodas to your hotel the night before, I did not have any thing to do about that and I would have appreciated a note from you saying you purchased the drinks. You also forgot glasses and ice to serve your guests. I was only in charge of the food and servers. My status as a professional ranks very high with all of my clients so I have to disagree with your statement.
