This was an experience I did not expect. I have eaten many times in Italy and was pleased with the menu. We had the mixed Tapas style which involved 3 separate dishes each from a list of about 24. All were prepared very well and all were eaten. We then had the deserts which were also well prepared.

Couldn't even call this food really, ridiculous portion sizes, poor value for money. Staff where rushed off their feet, literally throwing the food at you. Nice surrounding but that's about it.... Wouldn't go again.

It was our first visit to this Pesto, what a great experience. Food was first class with loads of choice, fresh cooked food NOT reheated ping and ding. The team couldn't do enough for us, with a special mention for Laura who was friendly & smiley without being intrusive. We will definitely be back.

Today we arranged a surprise birthday party for my Dad's 70th. The staff at Pesto were brilliant- very polite, professional and accommodating. Every one of the 26 guests commented on what a great meal it was. We selected the set meal for £15.95; there was plenty to go around and they even made up some doggy bags to take away... More

Three of us dined at Pesto last night. The menu is primarily based on small italian tapas type dishes. We ordered a selection of dishes including: calamari, fish cakes, mini pizza, mushrooms, mini lasagna etc. Every dish was delicious and the prices seemed very reasonable as the mid-week (pre 7pm) offer was either (depending on which menu you choose) £8.99...

Visited with our daughter, her partner and Grandson who is a very fussy eater. The food and service were excellent and the staff extremely accommodating towards 'the fussy one'. We dined at 6pm and the atmosphere was just right. As one of my Husbands favourite places we will definitely be visiting again.

Nice setting in an old pub that now serves tapas style Mediterranean food. Unfortunately, it seems to be microwaved, pre-cooked and not very tasty. Service was poor. Won't be going back anytime soon.

Hi Andy, Thank you for taking the time to give feedback after your recent visit. We take all feedback very seriously but to help clarify where the food our customers enjoy comes from, I thought that you may like to know that we make all of our own food - we even buy our cod direct from the Fraserburgh Harbour...
