We were on our way to our cottage and ordered the lamb shanks to go. The smell in the car nearly drove us crazy. When we got there we noticed that the chef had added more so we wouldn't go hungry. It was really REALLY good. Lit a fire and mowed down. Worth every penny. I would do that again... More

I recently visited Misto for the first time this week. What a wonderful surprise it was to find this delicious restaurant tucked off the beaten path. We ordered the spring rolls, which were crunchy and delicious, then a spicy fish, ginger and black bean dish, served over rice ( which was the best thing I had eaten at a resturant... More

Just love going here. It's our treat. Feels at times that your special due to the size. Sometimes I just tell the Chef to surprise us. Nothing like a tasty and awesome surprise meal. Home made soups are stunning. Sad that we don't go here often enough.

Thank you so very much for giving a voice to our little restaurant. Chef absolutely loves what he does. He enjoys when one of the regulars comes in and says "surprise me Chef". This happens more often that one would think :) More

So good! A great mix of different types of foods. Lots of options for those familiar with Cuban food and those that are a little more reserved, there is something for everyone.

We visited Misto this past weekend for the first time and loved it! All of the appitizers sounded so good we couldn't chose.

So glad you enjoyed! Yes, the only bad thing about Misto is having to choose between items on Chef's amazing menu. They are all so delicious! Most folks order a variety and then just share among themselves. Then there is the desserts...and it all starts again :) More

So happy that you enjoyed the pie! It has the perfect mix of sour and creaminess all held together by the homemade graham crust. It has quickly become one of the favorites :) More
