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

Pesto has been my favourite restaurant for many years. Top quality food for a very friendly price. Superb menu. Friendly people. The Thai chef has worked in European 5 star restaurants. The best in town!! You won't find any better. Highly recommended!

We were recommended this restaurant & the food did not disappoint. A very high quality menu. The scallop starter was delicious, as was the beef fillet. Don't expect a fine dining experience. The venue is typical rough round the edges. But the staff were lovely, & you would pay much more for a swanky place.

Babey~, this is what I came for~ No.32 I would recommend to anyone that likes creamy and (tomato) saucy pasta at the same time. Reasonable price for good ingredients and perfectly cooked pasta. This place is my fix every time I crave good European taste (of pasta).

Thank amontien

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.
