Portion Guide

The number of choices required depends largely on the time of day and the duration of the function and whether or not alcohol will be served.

For corporate cocktail functions and art exhibitions, where it is assumed that the guests will go elsewhere to dine after the event, we recommend selection of 4 to 5 varieties of finger food.

For social functions over four or more hours and where the finger food is to be served in place of a meal, we recommend a minimum of 10 pieces per person or 8 pieces plus a substantial fork item.

Staff

Food and Beverage service staff are available at a rate of $38.00 per hour Monday to Friday and $42.00 per hour on Saturdays and $45.00 per hour on Sundays (3 hour minimum call).

Pricing on our menus are a guide only. Once we have discussed the full requirements of your special event we will develop a quote/proposal that will include the cost of any extra equipment, staffing, delivery, GST and any other requirements.

Minimum Numbers

Depending on the type of event and menu selection, functions with less than 40 guests may attract a surcharge to cover fixed set-up costs.

In order to confirm your booking date, a deposit of $300.00 is required. Payment of the balance together with confirmation of final numbers is to be made one week prior to function date.
