El Paellero provided the food and drink for our party of 20 in July 2013. That's 1.5 years ago and I still think back on it fondly! The dinner was fantastic, and Rob and Donna were super accommodating. Next time we're in Sayulita we're definitely going to look them up and hope they can fit us in for another delicious... More

We LOVED our dinner provided by of El Paellero (aka Bob and Donna). The paella was divine - what a perfect main course for a diverse group - something for everyone, and even the usually picky kids gobbled down a plate. Everything was delicious and the margaritas were my favorite in town. All in all a great meal at a... More

El Paellero is just super! The owners provide a beautifully presented catered meal that's delicious, fun and easy, to your home or whatever location. The quantity is generous and the ingredients were excellent. Bob and Donna are gratious and engaging, and will make your evening a lovely experience.

What a great way to spend the evening. We own a beautiful home in Sayulita and had a full house of family/friends staying with us (11 adults, 5 kids) . Nobody wanted to cook so we hired El Paellero and enjoyed a fun and relaxing evening at home. Kids played in the pool, adults enjoyed a glass of wine on... More

In addition to the farmer's market every Saturday, you can book El Paellero for private events! Bob and Donna catered a family dinner we had in Sayulita over New Year's - brought all the food, used our house's dishes and stove, and cleaned up afterwards - and it was terrific! I highly recommend them.

I've had the paella from expat Bob Bergeron's catering many times and it is always wonderful. Every time I see him the pans get biger. The last one must have been near 3 1/2 feet in diameter. I love the fresh local shrimp and sausage mixed in with the safron and rice. My 12 year old son asks for this... More

You're visiting Sayulita (and you really should, you know!) You're staying in a condo and you're loving eating out. But you'd like to eat in one night with friends and family, and have something delicious, gourmet, but you don't want to spend all day shopping for the groceries and preparing the food. EL PAELLERO will bring you a fabulous meal... More
