The first choice to eat when in Windsor bar none. Awesome hospitality and service from a beautiful & charming country Inn.

We have really given this restaurant more than its share of chances hoping that it would improve. Hasn't happened! The last visit consisted of a fair pulled pork sandwich & extremely salty French fries. Our complaints were met with 'That's too bad.' We will not be returning- ever!

I have been to Cocoa Pesto/Eat on a couple of different occasions, with just my husband, for a business holiday party, etc. On different occasions I have found the same thing. Good food, but dreadfully slow, mediocre service, and over priced for portion sizes. For as long as you wait for the staff to bring drinks, and then sit waiting... More

Diner plans at another restaurant fell through so we decided to go back, again to Nova Scotia's best restaurant. We were not disappointed. The Coco Pesto simply put, has the best price value of any restaurant I have ever been at. You can pay a lot more for a lot less almost anywhere. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The... More

We heard about the ribs and had to try! Started with the Wedge Salad, very nice indeed! The Ribs arrived. Beautiful presentation, very generous portions, excellent quality! Lovely ambiance, friendly professional staff, an overall enjoyable dining experience!

Excellent food with great service. We had a good time relaxing on the outside patio. You have a choice of higher end dining or typical pub food depending on you mood for the day. Excellent choice and value.

Great patio, food and service at reasonable prices. An upscale restaurant with an Italian flare, but without the typically associated higher prices.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B host as a good; somewhat higher end place to eat. It was relatively early on a Saturday night, no one outside and 1 full table inside. We had to wait for several minutes before someone even appeared to seat us. We had a nice seat by the window; tastefully decorated and... More
