We were really happy with the service we received while at Auntie Pesto's. We had the scallop and crab appetizer that was incredible. So delicious. For our main courses we had the carbonara which was really good. The chorizo tortellini was very rich and heavy, it was tasty.

Four of us dined here and enjoyed every aspect of our experience. The waitstaff was knowledgeable about the food and wine list. Three of us ordered the lamb rack which was well prepared and of generous proportion. The fourth ordered salmon which she enjoyed.

The first day we arrived on the Island, we ate two meals here, because we loved it so much. They even have heaters & blankets to ward off a chill, if you are eating outside in the evening. A beautiful view of the marina from the patio, completes the delicious experience.

So that is my title for 1st timers like me who believed in 1st impressions last. Did not meet my expectations according to their price, food came out medium rare for my lamb and porkchops, so had to give it back to kitchen to cook it a little bit more so we had to wait for almost 45mins again, but...

Good situation on the waterfront. Busy on market day. The savoury scones were nice and not overpowering. The coffee very average, even by American standards.

Small restaurant overlooking the harbor in the shopping district. I was looking for a place to grab a quick lunch, and this place caught my eye. It was a little chilly so I chose the soup and bread. Presentation was wonderful and the food was very nice. I will definitely be back.

The restaurant is situated at the opening of a quaint little harbour which looks out to the adjacent islands. The waitress was extremely polite and there was a relaxed feel about the place from the moment we walked in. I opted for the COHO salmon choice with salad for $19. The glaze was sweet and the salmon was cooked to... More

Keep your back to the kitchen as the place isn't designed to be an open kitchen but is. But, the food was very good.
