Paradise Cuisine Catering at The Landing
Allen and his team are amazing!! There are not enough words to describe how awesome they are! Everything for our wedding was above and beyond! Allen was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had. We were a destination wedding to FL and did not have a chance to do a tasting. The food was fantastic, and the presentation was beautiful. We received a ton of compliments on the food and how professional the staff was. I HIGHLY recommend Paradise Cuisine!! Thank you to Allen and his team for helping me put together a wonderful event!
I was working with Allen to cater our beach wedding at Anna's Veranda. Due to bad weather we had to completely change plans; however, Allen and his team made this transistion go by very smoothly. The food was absolutely delicious!!! I had guest come up to me and tell me they had never had such "good wedding food." I even had compliments on the kindness of his staff. Because of the wedding day chaos, I was not able to eat with the rest of the guests, so Allen brought me a small platter so I wouldn't be starving. If we had hired any other cater I know the wedding & reception wouldn't have gone near as smoothly. I thoroughly appreciate all he and his staff did to make our destination wedding a success. (He also helped me coordinate with the rental agencies which is a HUGE bonus if you live out of town.)
Allen and his staff were AMAZING!! They were on point with everything. He made sure my guest had what they wanted available to them. The food was delicious and we got way more than what we were expecting. We did not know what to expect planning a wedding from so far away. Everything turned out beautiful!! He worked well with my other vendors and set up the rentals for me. He really made it a pleasant experience!!
Allen Davis and his staff were the perfect choice for our daughter's wedding. His staff could not have been more attentive to our family and our guests. The food was wonderful and the presentation was perfect. Everything was handled in a professional and seamless manner.
The Landing at Eagle Bay was also the perfect choice for a casual and fun rehearsal dinner. Allen is the best.
We first met with Allen from Paradise Cuisine some months back, and immediately hit it off with him. After going through this experience take it from me THIS IS VERY VERY IMPORTANT! He was extremely helpful! With this wedding being a destination wedding my wonderful mother took MANY 2 hour trips to Santa Rosa Beach to meet with him to discuss aspects of the reception! He was ALWAYS available! Not to mention I gave Allen a timeline of the reception and he was there to make sure it all went smoothly! We can go on and on about how AMAZING ALLEN was!! We met the chefs at a couple of our meetings and really LOVED what they had to say. Their input was SOOOOOOO helpful! Let's talk food... When EVERY SINGLE GUEST was and still is talking about how the food was "the best food they have ever had at a wedding" well that speaks for itself. However, we had an amazing menu and it all tasted DELICIOUS! We even had an oyster shucking station, that really WOW'D our guests! YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY is the rating we give P.C.C. The staff was great. Everyone from the Chefs to the Bartenders to the Butler passings of the food and drink. I would give this whole outfit a 20 out of 10! A huge THANK YOU for ALL of their help! They made our weddind MAGICAL!
Allen at Paradise Cuisine was such a pleasure to work with! Not only did he go above and beyond our expectations - he treated the wedding like it was his own and made sure that everything was perfect. He even handled our rentals for us which was a huge weight off our shoulders. All for a very reasonable price! I couldn't believe we were able to find such a great company/person to work with! Allen truly loves his work and puts special details into everything he does. I'm pretty sure he threw in some extras for us too! Everyone at the wedding raved about the food, it was delicious! Not your average wedding caterer. We had the best because he picked the best! Thanks Allen & team at Paradise Cuisine!!!!
Wow. Allen and his team at Paradise Cuisine are beyond excellent and a pleasure to work with. Fabulous food, impeccable service, lovely presentation... they deliver it all.
Our wedding guests raved about the food. The mashed potato bar and coconut rice got as many comments as the beef brisket - delicious. Allen does what he says he'll do and does it on time. It was such a relief to have an experienced professional handle all the rental items. Our wedding reception at Rosemary Beach was perfect.
You are in for an amazingly wonderful treat with Paradise Cuisine.
I am so happy I chose Paradise Cuisine Catering for my rehearsal dinner & wedding! Allen & his staff are wonderful! Everything from the beginning to the day of went smoothly and exceeded all expectations! So many guests commented on how delicious the food was both nights! I would absolutely recommend Allen at Paradise Cuisine for any event!
We have nothing but the HIGHEST praise for Allen and his team at Paradise Cuisine! From the start, Allen made us feel welcome and he truly worked hard to make our day custom fit to us. From our menu, to the linens, the rentals, and design of the venue, Allen gave us the opportunity to put our touches on everything, but still made it feel effortless for us (even though I know it definitely wasn’t effortless for him!)
For example, Both of us are from Maryland and wanted to incorporate a crabcake into our menu; let me tell you, Paradise Cuisine's crabcake can rival any crabcake from Maryland! Not only was the food outstanding (many of our guests asked if they could go for seconds and we have heard from the majority of our guests that it was the best food they have EVER had at a wedding, especially the prime rib--YUM!!). And too, the service throughout the whole event was seamless. Glasses were always full and plates were whisked away as soon as you were done eating... The guests even raved about how fun and wonderful the bartender was!
The Landing at Eagle Bay was the perfect venue for our reception as well. With the large 4 sided bar outside, gave guests the opportunity to mingle and sit comfortably in the shade during cocktail hour. We were introduced by our DJ through the vine covered awning by the far side of the pool which gave us a great photo op! Inside, many of our guests found solace from the heat as Allen made sure that our guests were comfortable at all times. During the August heat, I would say that is a miracle! The stage area was set up as our cake display, which also became a great place for everyone to watch us cut the cake and grab a cupcake (or two!). As the dancing began, the overhead lights added a very fun vibe.
Needless to say, our wedding was everything and more thanks to Allen and his team at Paradise Cuisine!
Allen is a dream to work with! He is creative and willing to do anything in his power to make your every dream come true. He answers emails within minutes and phone calls within a day. His food doesn't just taste like typical wedding food, but rather food from a great restaurant! We got SO many compliments on the crab and shrimp at our low country boil rehearsal dinner and everybody LOVED the sliders and raw oysters at our wedding. Allen even made a few fried oysters for my mother-in-law as a surprise and hand delivered them to her at our reception! Allen and his team are extremely friendly and are such a joy! I recommend Paradise Cuisine and ANYBODY and EVERYBODY who wants the best!!
We used Paradise Cuisine for our June wedding in Rosemary Beach, FL. Allen and his team did an amazing job! They were so easy to work with and created a menu that reflected us. Our guests are still talking about the about the wonderful seafood bar with oysters shucked on site. The service at the reception was exactly what you want on the day of your wedding--professional and attentive. We didn't have to worry about a thing!
From the first moment I spoke with Allen at paradise cuisine I felt confident and comfortable his team would provide excellent service! This company surpassed my every expectation! The food displays were exquisite, staff was accommodating, and food was delicious. Two weeks after our wedding we continue to receive phone calls about how delicious the tarragon chicken was! My many thanks to paradise cuisine for helping make our dreams come true!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Paradise Cuisine. My husband and I had our wedding in April of last year, and I can honestly say that I'm so happy we chose to work with Allen Davis and his wonderful team. Allen and his staff were professional, flexible, and extremely pleasant. Our food was delicious and I received so many compliments, especially about our shrimp and grits! We also really appreciated that the catering staff took the time to make "to go" plates, placed in a cute picnic basket, so that we could enjoy our food again later that night. A year has now passed and our family and friends still talk about how wonderful the food and staff were. Paradise Cuisine helped make our wedding day unforgettable and I would absolutely recommend them to any bride looking for excellent food and service with a smile!
I had them provide a catering service for my husband's 50th birthday party. The service was top notch and the food was exquisite! I would recommend them to anyone. I am a professional wedding photographer and deal with many caterers. Paradise Cuisine is one of the best!
Allen Davis and the team at Paradise Cuisine are WONDERFUL! They came highly reccommended to us by many people and venors in the area. In December, our original caterers fell through (the restaurant closed), and we called Paradise Cuisine in hope that they would be able to accommodate us on short notice for our March wedding. Allen responded promptly with an email and phone call and was excited to help us with both our wedding and rehearsal dinner. He and I both agreed that it was fate that brought us together! He was a godsend and was always very helpful, easy to work with, prompt, professional and as nice as could be!
At our events, he and his team were great and on top of everything! We loved Allen, his sister and partener, Mary; and one of the bartenders, Colleen! They were just amazing and made everything SO easy. Of course, the food was great too! I especially LOVED the kobe beef meatloaf we had at the wedding. I could eat it everyday for the rest of my life! I also loved the crab cake appetizers and the grilled veggies.
Again, I cannot say enough wonderful things about Paradise Cuisine, Allen Davis, and his amazing team. I understand why they came so highly recommended, and I would encourage anyone in the Florida Panhandle to use them to cater thier wedding!
Vendor response to review
We appreciate your very kind words. Our crew truly enjoyed serving you and your guests. Thanks, Mary
Allen and his team at Paradise Cuisine provided the food for our rehearsal dinner 0f approximately 85 people on 3/23/12. Allen was more than a caterer as he helped us with every aspect of the event. His professionalism, knowledge and "calm" was so appreciated.
He and his team arrived and provided the best services from from set-up to clean-up. They were present and available (but not overshadowing) throughout the event. It was so nice to relax, visit with guests, and not worry about the food service.
The food was wonderful and got rave reviews from the guests. I was expecially partial to the shrimp boil, but understand the key lime pie was a favorite of others.
It is without reservation that I recommend Allen and his team for your event.
Loved them. So organized. Great food. Great staff. Great presentation. Would recommend them to anyone. Allen the owner was a pleasure to work with.
Great food!!!! The only knock was that we had a deal with the alcohol provider that we could return all unused alcohol and Paradise Cuisine opened or chilled all of the alcohol, meaning we couldn't return anything. Other than that, they did a phenomenal job and really helped meet our theme through the food and presentation!
Vendor response to review
My memory of this event is that the Bride and Groom asked my staff to carry all of the remaining beer, wine, and alcohol to the roof top of the Above It All House. We refused, which meant that their remaining guests were then left to carry it all up there, and it is quite possible that they may have placed all the remaining items into the coolers for transport to the roof top.
Thank you to everyone at Paradise Cuisine. Allen and his staff are amazing to work with. Allen went above and beyond to make my daughter's wedding reception perfect. He listened to her ideas and even shared his ideas which made the reception even better! Everyone commented on how wonderful the food was. We still talk about how wonderful the food was. We would not have been able to do all of the wedding planning without Allen's help. He went out of his way to help us. Thank you again!
Allen is the most flexible caterer in existence:-) My daughter and I went for a tasting and just loved his food, and when she asked him to add mini cheeseburgers, grilled cheese, and fries to the menu, he did not hesitate. However, in the end I was not as impressed with his staff. The food was not hot and the wine was not chilled. I felt that because our wedding was small, that we did not get the attention needed on the day of the event. They were late getting to the site and then had problems setting up (which should not have occurred since they had already done a wedding at that site).
The food was wonderful! We could not ask for better tasting food and the presentation of the food was beautiful. Allen was very nice but can be a little slow to return calls and emails. Overall though, I would recommend them.
I got married in May 2010 down in Destin, FL and Paradise Cuisine was our Caterer! When we went for our taste testing, we were welcomed at the door very nicely! Allen was very specific about telling us about the dishes. The presentation was amazing as well as every single dish! Allen was very open to ideas and very helpful!
For our rehersal dinner, we also used Allen. We had a country boil! Everything was so delicious and the display was very organized and creative!
When our wedding day rolled around we were very excited about the food! We made sure that we were going to be able to eat! My husband and I led the buffet line! The waiters and waitresses were very nice and polite! The presentation and food was phenomenal! The whole night and to this day we always here about how good the food was!
Allen is a very nice man and willing to help you with anything! Allen, my family and I have developed a friendship and still keep in touch with each other! Allen also has a restaurant named Cherry Peppers, which is where we tasted our food. My husband and I will be going back to his restaurant to have some more of his amazing food very soon!
I dream of Allen's food; the fish tacos, the crab claws, the coconut shrimp! The team went over the top to make our reception the best it could be and more. Our guests went back for seconds and the food just kept coming...Allen and his team were prepared for anything!
Allen and his team went above and beyond for our reception. They smoothed our the sand for our ceremony and setup the 30 chairs. They came out the day before and we walked through everything. We also visited their restaurant (Cherry Peppers) and sampled their food once we were in town. Everyone raved about the food. We did the Caribbean buffet and enjoyed the coconut shrimp, saucy/tender bbq ribs, and stuffed grouper the most. They brought the cake to each person as they sat and poured the champagne. We had a small reception of 30, but they took such good care of us. I would use them again if I did it all over.
What can we say, we just love Paradise Cuisine! They go above and beyond for their client and it shows. They are so easy to work with and they only want what is best for their client. As an event designer we appreciate all the attention to detail that they give!

A guest of mine staying at one of my beach houses decided to throw a 50th wedding anniversary for his parents. The entire family of 50 or so were present and they chose Paradise Cuisine Catering. Afterwards, all I heard about was how great the food and service was ...nothing about the festivities! The entire family was thrilled and Paradise made this event even more special.
