Providing World-Class Catering to Santa Rosa Beach, 30A, South Walton, Seaside, Carillon Beach, Rosemary Beach, Sandestin, Mirarmar Beach, and Destin


Dearest Allen- the delay in my review of Paradise Cuisine is not a reflection of my gratitude.


Please let me share with you, as well as others my experience with Paradise Cuisine.


I am a born and raised Panama City Floridian. I currently live in Washington DC where I work alongside some of the very best in the events industry. I have high standards and I refuse to compromise for my clients events and this certainly was the case when deciding on a catering company for my wedding.


My first impression of Allen- we shared a meal at Castaway's in Carillon Beach. He was on time, prepared, friendly, and hospitable. I asked pointed and direct questions, and he was cool as a cucumber. He brought materials and photos and was able to answer all of my questions. He too was recently married and serves his clients well because of personal experience. The rest is history.


Allen became more than a vendor. He was at every meeting because he wanted to be a part and he wanted to master the vision I was desiring to create. I am a controlling person and if it was possible, I would have somehow tried to put together my entire wedding- but lets be realistic here, that is simply ridiculous. Allen knew how to read me and served me as a client, but also as a friend and earned my trust and knew how to help me relinquish control into his capable hands.


I planned my wedding from a thousand miles away and he stayed in touch and made himself available to me at all times. He worked with me, he let me design my menu- but was ready with suggestions and creativity in the areas I needed. His chef was fantastic in helping execute and on the day of the wedding and frankly- Allen, Chef, and his staff EXCEEDED my expectations. the food was not only delicious, but presented so well. I love Allen and I know that my parents fully intend to use him in the future for my 3 sisters. He was a joy to work with and get to know. He is the perfect catering company for any event because he cares and he works hard to invest in his clients and give it his all and continues to learn and grow and challenge himself. I cannot thank you enough Allen for going above and beyond and even doing things that werent even a part of your job description. Daniel and I love and appreciate you and wish you all the success in the world, you have such a gift!


PS- they put together the best picnic basket for my husband and i to enjoy after the wedding because naturally we didnt get to eat. from beginning to end he had a special touch! so thankful



Tony and I just can't thank you enough for the beautiful job you and your staff did for Alison's wedding. We are still in awe of the delicious and beautiful food. It surpassed all our expectations. Thank you, thank you, thank you. So many of my co-workers told me how delicious everything was. Your staff was exceptional-so gracious and attentive. Apparently, my niece stuck her elbow in the cocktail sauce and someone was there to clean it up before her mother even noticed it happened !


Thank you for creating just the reception we wanted for Matt and Alison. Your attention to detail made it all perfect.





Hi Allen! I just wanted to tell you thank you! Your crew did an excellent job Saturday night and the food was AMAZING! It was a pleasure getting to know you. Thank you again!



Thanks again for making Mallory and Steven's wedding so wonderful. The food was amazing and you guys are so organized and professional. It was great working with you and I received several compliments on the great food. I gave your name to many of the guests who are working on their own daughters' weddings. Good luck to you and thanks again!

Thanks and God Bless!!

On our one year wedding anniversary, I wanted to take the time to thank you again for making our wedding the most beautiful, fantastic day of our lives. Your team and was so professional & wonderful to work with. I often think, “how did I pull off an amazing reception from across the country” and the answer is simple – Allen Davis!! Our friends & family still rave about the food & service at our wedding, and how it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Your staff went above and beyond to make our big day beyond perfect. So again, a year later – thank you for everything!

Thank you!!! Thank you, Allen, and your entire team & staff for creating such a wonderful set up and delicious food at our May 17, 2009 wedding at the Destin Dreamer beach house! All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the cocktails, appetizers, salads, fruit, meats, jumbo shrimp & warm chicken. It was prepared with excellence and displayed so beautifully! The champagne fountain and

chocolate strawberry displays were such a special and personal touch as well for us!


Thank you for your top-notch service and reliability. Paradise Cuisine was a wonderful addition to our wedding moments and memories!


All the best,

Angie & Rafael

I can't thank you enough for all of your hard work which made Leslie & Joe's wedding such a success. The food was unbelievable- I have had so many comments about how wonderful it was. The beef tenderloin, potatoes (I have to find out the spices used), & salads were delicious! The seafood station was also a huge success. The oysters being shucked there was an especially nice touch, & Leslie said she could not get enough of the crab cakes! The venue was enhanced by your vision of how it should look. The lanterns & lighting on the palm trees were spectacular. If you would like to see some pictures go to, choose "online ordering" , "Joe & Leslie" are near the bottom. Lastly, your staff was wonderful-friendly and accommodating  ( thank you for introducing me to your sister). We are usually down there twice a year, & if you do small dinner parties, we would love to use your wonderful services again.


Best regards,


Everything was fabulous! Thank you so much for all your help during the planning. I don't know what I would have done without you. You and your staff were wonderful! We received many compliments on the great food. Each and every detail was taken care of. Thank you so much for making our daughter's wedding perfect.



I just wanted to say Thank You again you did a wonderful job on the wedding. I had several people come up to me and tell me that it looked just like something out of a magazine. Your staff did a great job as well, they were super. I can't say enough good words about how wonderful the food and everything was. There were people there from all over the US who will go back home and tell everyone about the wedding.


Thank you so much for the wonderful job that you did!


Hi Allen,


You certainly saved the event. When our first caterers fell through and didn't call us about it - you jumped in and kept the committment. The wedding rehersal dinner was everything and more than you promised us on the phone. The food was fabulous!! We were especially surprised at the the crab balls you threw in as an appetizer. And those extra large shrimp were to die for. And, the taco bar was superb! l loved how you matched the decor around the bar with our theme of decorations. It was such a magical event. I owe it all to you and your pleasnt and friendly staff. We can' thanks you enough.

I am so sorry to take so long getting back to you, but Jim and I have been traveling most of the summer and are just now getting back home.  I have written you reviews on both wedding wire and and am happy to submit them anywhere else if you would like, just let me know.  This is the one I submitted to (I submitted one similar to wedding wire):


"Allen Davis at The Landing was simply FANTASTIC!  When we found ourselves a few months away from the wedding without a rehearsal dinner venue (our previously booked restaurant had gone out of business without notifying us), Allen came to the rescue!  From the first time I spoke with him, he was easy to talk to and willing to help us in any way he could.  He provided us with a wonderful buffet dinner and appetizers, a super staff, and a beautiful venue for our rehearsal dinner.  The Landing has both indoor and outdoor dining options.  Outside is a large bar area and a pool that was surrounded by tables.  It was simply stunning, and we spent the entire dinner outside!  The food was delicious- everyone there raved about it!  I simply cannot say enough good things about Allen and everyone at The Landing, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding or rehearsal dinner venue!"


Feel free to use all or a portion of it on your website or Facebook or anywhere!  Thanks again- you guys were so great!!
