Hands down best place in Windsor, only two problems, one being they are never open other then a couple hours in the evening, two being unless your spending a lot of money including appetizers, main course, dessert and drinks they tend to make you feel bad, luckily the food is amazing and will keep us going back :)

Twelve of us had a dinner last night. My starter of bacon/haddock chowder was edible but my mistake was ordering "dry" ribs as a main course. Dry is an understatement as they were carbonized and almost inedible. The second disappointment was the chocolate pecan pie which was so tough that you couldn't eat it without a knife to cut it...

Being new to a town it's nice to try out the local restaurants. Unfortunately for all the other spots, we tried Cocoa Pesto first…and they have set the bar very high! We've been back several times and always try something new. It's all excellent! Great atmosphere, great service and top notch food. Highly recommended!

Stopped here after an afternoon of tidal bore rafting. The restaurant was busy - but the wait was not long. Service was great and the food was excellent. I'll be back!

Special Thanks to Marilyn and staff who helped to make our 20th anniversary evening so very special. Our daughter and her husband took us out to dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening complete with candles in our crème caramel dessert. Thank You Cocoa pesto!!!

The remainder were late teens to 80 years. We were able to order from all three of the menu's - brunch, pub and main. There were items... More
