Rustic fine dining for private functions and events from Quiet Waters.

Creating truly unique menus all cooked over wood, charcoal and flames in styles inspired by Latin American, Mediterranean as well as some Southern US techniques.

Vivid colours, vibrant flavour combinations, homemade sauces, bastes and marinades, the freshest beautifully prepared meats, vegetables and all of the drama of cooking with smoke and fire.

All menus are unique, created specifically for each event, so whether it’s a Wedding, Party, Festival or business event, everything will have been made just for you.
