Pesto restaurant offers good Italian style meals. Quality and quantity are goods, Italian tastes are complied with, sea view is nice, prices not so high being in UAE. A good place to eat good and to rest well.

When we arrived he realised the restaurant had changed hands and was now being run by an Italian and he had brought an Italian chef with him.... More
