There is no air conditioning in this café and it could use is on these hot days. Service was quick, friendly and efficient. Out water glasses were filled... read more

This restaurant has a beautiful location on the water that is the only redeeming feature. When we arrived the service started off well. We were seated right away and when the waitress saw that I was uncomfortable because of the metal chair being so cold she brought me a blanket. The menu looked great, our order was taken, we got...

5 of us visited here for dinner. It was good overall but disappointing that a halibut special had only 1 left and 4 of us ordered it.

Great location, good food and pleasant helpful staff. Getting a table at the waters edge is great in the summer.

We make it to Salt Spring a couple times a year for the Saturday market. We decided to try Auntie Pesto's for lunch. The service was terrible. It took almost an hour to get our food, never did get our wine. Only one crab cake and limited accompaniments for $17 and pretty average tasting. Slow, overpriced, mediocre food - lots... More

Had read and heard good things about Auntie Pestos so we're looking forward to a wonderful mean and experience. There were 2 of us dining, we were seated right away in a restaurant which was about 3/4 full. The menu looked very good, lots of pastas and a variety of other mains and a daily feature of about 4 items... More

The food was really good and the prices were reasonable. The vegetables couldn't have been fresher - they were from the chef's garden! I would definitely eat here again.

While on Salt Spring Island, local friends recommended eating at Auntie Pesto's Cafe. It was the best meal of our vacation. Portion sizes were large, and they were able to accommodate dietary restrictions by modifying items to make them vegan. Appetizers ordered by members of our party included the Spinach Salad; House Greens; Chilli Lime Prawns; Beer Battered Beets; Mushroom... More

This is a little cafe on the water with stunning views and delicious food. We eat here every time we visit the island. Pleasant staff and great service!
