About Us

Absolute Catering was established in September 2009, by proprietor and Head Chef Petr Simon.

This catering company has come a very far way in a relatively short space of time. After its initial inception, Absolute Catering went through a rough time due to the worldwide economic recession, but it has come through that and has now firmly established itself in the market place.

Functions to date include high profile weddings with 400 guests, banquet type meals, sit down French
cuisine plated dinners, cocktail parties, and buffet breakfasts, lunches or dinners.

Absolute Catering provides a fresh continental breakfast as well as cooked lunches to various companies and training institutions on daily basis.
