We are eating regulary at Pesto and like his cuisine, fine and not expensive at all. Hiring professional staff and even increasing a little the price would profit them at the end. Fresh products,nice presentation!

Visited tonight. Basic decor but that hides the fact that the food produced is top drawer. Food arrived at strange intervals which actually added to the occasion. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be going back. Great stuff.

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.
