What happens if instead of watching X clients, end customers attend more?


That is probably no tables mounted to the over, and that there is enough food for the people who had not hired. In the case of a cocktail, this situation is less visible but nonetheless real. Unfortunately, This situation has given us very clearly one 6 % of the time and what happens is that the customer definitely reserve a number of people, but after, without notifying, are made such that (and support) to more, than expected, both in food and in service, seems insufficient. We believe it is dishonest and clearly remember these clients and agencies that brought, and not only destroy our reputation and our spirits, but also our relationship with these agencies and these customers.
In all cases, We will always do everything we can at the time by adapting to the new and unexpected situation.

How often lasts dinner (the cocktail, dinner, the toast, coffee and music)?


The cocktail usually lasts 45 minutes, dinner usually lasts 90 minutes, and coffee 20 minutes. To not do later, music can begin after dessert – if it is a live performance usually lasts 45 minutes. A total of 45 + 90 + 20 + 45 = 3 hours 20 minutes. If they reach the 9 pueden salir a las 12:30. Everything can be done faster if requested and provides. To compress all these parts of the service, do the cocktail 30 dinner in minutes 70 and coffee 20, add 120 minutes being 2 hours (no music). If guests have to leave at a specific time to catch a plane for example, is primarily important to plan well organizing times each dish, and if the guests are late, or fail together, or slow to sit, can not be the responsibility of catering hold times and the customer has to understand that this disorder will affect you, as the output is not atrasable, Some or all clients will have to go without drinking coffee or dessert. In any case, the easy answer is very high for 100 people and too little to 500, not because there is less service diner there is none, but by the difficulty of communication in real time to make changes in the schedule of service and by the limitation of space inside for all the internal movement of equipment.
