Spitting Image Catering are the absolute best. Professional staff and chefs with an incredible list of food and drink options. The Spitting Image team ran an unbelievably great operation at my 40th birthday with all of our friends raving about the range and quality of the food as well as the friendly staff. Could not recommend Spitting Image highly enough. Thanks again

Thanks to Spitting Image for another great BBQ at Albert Park Lake on Tuesday evening. The food was great, service efficient, and all of our customers very happy! We couldn't expect more. Trent Harlow
I have used Spitting Image Catering twice now. Once for my son's 18th bday party and once for a football club Presentation night. On both occasions I had numerous positive comments on the quality and quantity of food provided. The staff are also a pleasure to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Well done you guys! Big thumbs up for the incredibly professional Michael and Hannah who made my wedding bbq such an easy breezy affair, with plenty of compliments on everything from service to quality of food.. And my MIL commented that the kitchen was so clean, it was as if no one used it at all! So quiet and discreet as well. Definitely will keep you in mind for future parties x
A huge big thank you to Mark, Melissa and your great staff at Spitting Image for helping to make OIGFC Auction Dinner Dance at Collingwood Town Hall last Saturday such a great success.
Nearly 200 people looked after with a menu of pre dinner drinks & several canapés, a choice of two mains, a desert platter, a cheese platter tea and coffee. Also our vegetarians, G.F. and F.I. were catered for.
The tables looked great and silver ice buckets were a great finishing touch.
We had many compliments on the delicious finger food and a lot of ladies loved the chicken main and especially loved the desert platter.
You do such a great job of catering for our home games every season and I'm sure the committee will be wanting you to do our future functions.
Nearly 200 people and no complaints says it all.
Well done Mark and your team.

Ernst & Young
I just wanted to let you know that Sunday was a great success and the feedback on the food was great, everybody was really happy with it. Unfortunately the boys didn't make the finals but they really enjoyed the day. So thank you very much for organising it all for us.
I can’t thank you both enough. The level of professionalism that your staff have shown is immense. Especially for a wedding... the day was already perfect, but they added extra value. I had guests ask for takeaway bags, and there was more than enough food that was still delicious the day after!
