I had the pleasure of attending a stunning outdoor wedding in country Victoria over the weekend catered by the amazing team at Hot Coals. Food was hot, delicious and plentiful! The service was friendly, professional and efficient. I would like to particularly thank Claudine for making the experience even more special! She has an amazing attitude and is highly attentive - ensuring all the guests, in particular those with special dietary requirements, were all well fed! She has a beautiful smile and is a valuable asset to your team! Well done Hot Coals!

Had the most amazing night dining in at Hot Coals with friends. Amazing food, staff, venue and cocktails! Extremely helpful with various dietary requirements to provide a relaxed night. Will definitely be back for more dining and special functions. Thanks Tania, Richard, Tamara and staff

I recently had Hot Coals cater our home function. They were fantastic! Greeting me on the night with reassuring words that I was to relax & enjoy the night; they would take care of everything! And they certainly did! Plentiful food all around the house, lovely smiles & conversations with guests! Our gluten free & vegetarian guests were very well looked after! As we opted for the external woodfire oven, there was no need to use my kitchen, and the food just magically appeared! They cleared glasses, bottles & plates as they worked the rooms and even helping cutting and serving of desserts and dips and nibbles that I had supplied myself! Could not fault them, would highly recommend Hot Coals!

Hot Coals is an outstanding catering company. They are forthcoming with information and questions are answered without delay. The food is absolutely amazing, didn’t even have leftovers to enjoy at home, and this event was a 16th birthday party. The staff are so lovely and the young adults that are employed to wait are very happy and polite. I couldn’t recommend them more for any occasion or event, absolute perfection.

We use Hot Coals for our school fete each year. They are the first people I lock in. Excellent communication, very professional and always deliver as promised. Highly Recommend.

I’d like to thank Hot Coals for the attention to detail and professional service you provided to our Linfox Government & Defence Team for our annual Christmas get together. I have been inundated with positive comments from my colleagues around how good the food tasted (nobody was left hungry!) and how friendly & responsive the service team were. Special thankyou to Richard, Mia & Gayle who looked after us superbly on the day. I highly recommend Hot Coals for any function you may have and I look forward to using your services again in the future. Thanks again!

THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS. We hired Hot Coals to cater our large cocktail wedding in Nov, 2018 & right from the word go, they were fabulous! We found their quote reasonable compared to other companies, & after going to the Tasting Night (highly recommend going to this!!), we were sold! The food is INCREDIBLE - everything they cook goes through the wood fire oven; the staff are so lovely & full of great advice in the lead up. I was an absolute rookie planning my wedding/event; whenever I had a question, Hot Coals were there with the exact answer I was after. On the day of the wedding, I was well fed – apparently something most brides are not on the day of their wedding, & the staff even made sure I had a drink at all times. The guests were all talking about how good the food was the day after, and they even took special care of our ‘GF’ and other dietary requirement guests – they felt very special and well looked after on the night! I would hire hot coals again and again, and I will highly recommend Hot Coals to anyone! Big shout out to Jacqui at Hot Coals – legend. I’ll never forget how well she looked out for me on the day & ensured I was fed, happy & drinking! THANKYOU!!

As a corporate company who host a few events per year, we are always drawn back to Hot Coals not only because we know they are amazing in service & quality but because over the years they have handled everything we have thrown at them. Hot Coals consistently exceeds our expectations each & every time. Thanks again from the team at Platinum Travel Corporation
