“Something unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

Vesta is that something unique you look for when looking for somewhere different for dinner. I couldn't decide what to select on the menu as they all sounded so good? The slow cooked dishes combined with the atmosphere offers a sense of old world goodness.

“A wonderful suprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

They really know and love their food. The cheese soufflé was to die for but better shared between two. (Husband says three). There is a passion for what they do. We'll go back anytime. Thanks for a great meal.

“Love the soufflé”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

Loved the food here. You must have the double cheese soufflé as good as the Eiger Chalet in Perisher Valley. The soufflé is so so good I could have had it for entree and desert. However it is very filling. Professional service and friendly management too.
We shall return.

“Valentine's day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

We had a booking for Vday and the two of us went along. Our table was right next to a couple who were there for dinner but not for Valentine's night and they were SO LOUD! The woman had a particularly loud braying laugh and was monopolising the entire restaurant. The guy I've seen around locally before and he was cracking up at everything she said. They got a lot of attention from staff so I guess they must be regulars but they annoyed the c*** out of us and most of the other guests in the place. So incredibly loud and rude. We got very little attention until they finally left. When they did finally go, we all looked at each other and said THANK GOD FOR THAT.

We had a pork belly dish - the food arrived on a bread board, which is all stylish but there's nothing to catch the meat juices as they trickle off the board and onto your table.
The pork wasn't that crispy which was a shame, because that's really the point I thought. The servings were also massive. We had enough food to serve three or four people... We shared a bit of dessert.
It was nice. The atmosphere was spoiled initially by the narcissist couple but beyond that, it was nice enough. I am not sure if I have any burning desire to return. The service could have been better had they not been fawning over the loud couple but I guess they were more important.
Meh.
