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).

We went to Pesto for dinner for 2 times in our Phuket trip. Free pick-up service from our hotel, nice and sincere staff, and tasty food at a low price. We ordered steamed and deep-fried fish, one for each, both fresh and yummy. Our kids love it! The smoothies there is a must-try! Fresh and chilly! Only 55B each!

A friend recommended this restaurant and after looking at the reviews we decided that we should try it. The staff are extremely friendly and the food was delicious. We tried meat and pasta dishes and they were all delicious. Many people have raved about their chocolate lava cake and they were right to. It really did not disappoint. Would recommend... More

We just had Pasta there - Carbonara, Gnocchi with Mushrooms. Therefore my review will not be too long... Carbonara was good, bacon was tasty and spagetthi slightly overcooked, the texture of the sauce was creamy but lacked in salt and pepper. The homemade Gnocchi were cooked well and the sauce was creamy but also lacked in salt and pepper. The... More

From the outside, it was unassuming and one would easily be mistaken in thinking it's another run of the mill pseudo Thai/ Continental restaurant but ... wow ... the food is just plain delicious and not just taste but the plating We had the crisp fried potato julienne with pork meatballs (a bit greasy but delicious), typical minced chicken w...

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.
