We went for an evening out and found Pastis to be lovely, with character. Service was good and dinner served in a timely fashion with a nice selection of wine.

2 friends for lunch. Started well and we received our wine fast. Things started going downhill afterwards. One friend had lots of raw onion in her Quinoa salad despite clearly saying no onion. The food arrived at different times (mains). My sirloin with salsa verde and braised lettuce with carrots (despite saying clearly NO Carrots) arrived interestingly as follows: Sirloin... More

It's been a while since we were last at Pastis and it is in need of a bit of TLC it seems. It all seems a bit worn - almost as if management have grown a bit tired of giving it the attention that it needs to keep the standards where they should be for a restuarant that has the... More

Meeting up with friends for a quick lunch. Ordered food when it arrived inedible. Looked disgusting. Glad friend didn't eat the prawns they would have been very ill. Told restaurant manager that we couldn't eat it, he looked at the food and his face didn't "Light up" either when he looked at it. We left money for the wine walked... More

Unbelievable setting , overpriced bland corner cafe food. There were 4 of us looking at spending a great afternoon together catching up in the stunning vineyard setting. There were 4 tables and service was nonexistent. The food was very, very average and very over priced for what we were served.

One of the best settings in the valley for a Bistro / Tapas Bar, this restaurant needs either a complete makeover, a radical attitude change or new owners. Over the years I've experienced it from "very good" /"good" all the way to poor & back again. Right now, for me it's in the "poor" category. I've been a regular here... More

We always enjoy the friendly service and good food at Pastis. Nothing better to sit outside on a beautiful summers night, enjoying a glass of wine and good food with good company and music.
