Just disappointed after getting recommended to go there. Value for money.......mmmmmm quite expensive and the main course I ordered was cold! There was not much choice and I found the wines to be extremely over priced. We will think twice about returning.

The food was quite good. We have a table of seven for a birthday dinner and we ordered all entree and mains from the Manu (total 4 entree and 4 mains) and a bottle of French wine as recommended by the waitress.

Great place for a long lunch! Don't expect a quick in and out lunch, but you can expect the best ingredients and fresh dishes. Service was great and welcoming.

Best lamb shoulder ever! But serving red wines at 35 degrees ...??? Not done! Small investment for a small wine cellar would be a solution

Beautiful and very quaint little restaurant serving up local food, with an Italian/Mediterranean twist. Wonderful ambience, very friendly staff who were very helpful and took the time to help plan our days activities. Would definitely go back!

Having been here many years ago I knew the main courses were substantial so shared a charcuterie platter and left room for the lamb shoulder. The small charcuterie platter included 2 pates and meats as well as pickled vegetables. They happily provided flaxseed crisp as a gluten free option and offered olives instead of house bread when we were seated.... More

Vesta offers bold, exciting flavours in a country environment with a modern edge. Contemporary classics are taken to another level with this small but punchy menu. The environment is welcoming and the team are friendly and engaging. Vesta is a true gem in the heart of Blackheath
