Very reliable and cheap food that always satisfies . Great for families. Thai dishes are superb .the western style food is done in a way to be found in any good restaurant in Europe.

It took probably more than 10 minutes to order food. Then more than one hour to get it on the table . Service is poor because of the kitchen which is not following the tempo of the orders. We came once. Really a nightmare! Place to avoid !

Visited here again . This time had Thai food which was served beautifully and was extremely good. The Massaman was really good as was the duck with grapes. Our grandson had lasagna which was so good we ate what he left. Pudding, melt in the middle, spot on like last time and stupid cheap prices. Going again in 2 days.... More

I have been going to Pesto over a period of four or five years and have always found the Thai food to be very tasty, well presented and at a very reasonable price. They have obviously had an improved income as they have refurbished the restaurant area and the toilets. II would thoroughly recommend Pesto to anyone who wants to... More

One of our favs. Long, exhausting menu with well cooked western and Thai dishes. Something for everyone, literally. It's the type of place you would be happy with a nice bottle of vino or two. Service can be pretty annoying and you get your food when you get your food. Don't even attempt to space it out...go with the flow...

The prices are one of the lowest there in the row of restaurants, but the quality of food is similar to them as well. I only tried their Thai food, and not other cuisines, but I am very pleased by what I had. Their Pad Thai especially was quite good, ordered an entire fish for a very low price that... More

Visited Pesto for the first time today and we will definitely go back. The prices are incredibly reasonable and the quality of the food is high. Being slightly set back from the road makes it a little quieter and also perhaps easy to miss. The space is fairly open and neutral in its colour palette. Service was efficient and friendly....

Had 2 delicious meals here. Whole white snapper was a highlight! All of the dishes were authentic, tasty, and the service was great. Free transport to and from our homestay was a bonus.

It's an unassuming restaurant, quite easy to miss even if you walk past lest along drive. They do have complimentary pickup/return service but call them to check if they serve your hotel. Our favorites is Italian. Servings may not appear large but they will be sufficient to fulfill your cravings. Pricing is reasonable from our perspective for each course. The... More

Everything we do in the kitchen, from using subtle textures and flavours, to seeking out the freshest local produce has the same objective: to stimulate the palate and delight the senses.

Our menu which is inspired by authentic Mediterranean and Thai flavours creates a fusion of tradition and innovation, uniting yesterday and tomorrow.

Our aim is to transform classic Mediterranean dishes through the use of bold, Asian inflected seasonings and unexpected flavor combinations to draw the basic essence and nuanced flavours of quality ingredients to the fore and allow them to truly shine.
