    What a fantastic experience! From start to finish we had an amazing night. From the 1st phone call to check we could still make it I was really impressed - such friendly, helpful staff. The food was lovely and great value for money, we all loved it and will definitely go back!

    We went here to surprise my daughter, she loves filipino food. The food was lovely, the dessert it's really good. My husband never eat filipino food but at this time he had some and really love it, he wants to go back again. Everyone's friendly, the manager/owner is very polite and lovely lady. Very high recommended to all friends. I will take my family again soon. My children can't wait.

    Unfortunately the food was cold and we had to send back one dish twice. There was a very long gap between courses and it took almost 4 hours for the meal. The kitchen was not working well and despite the efforts of the lovely front of house lady, it was not an enjoyable experience.

    Pyesta makes a welcome departure from the chain restaurants on every other street corner and high street food court. The warm atmosphere, intimate surroundings, and surprisingly small size all give it a homely, welcoming feel that envelopes you as soon as you walk through the door. Friendly wait staff are both knowledgable and open when discussing the menu, and our waiter gave us some inspired suggestions! The food was divine - a healthy mix of hearty home comfort and elevated national dishes makes the choice of what to sample a challenge, but I don't think one can go wrong with any of the delicacies on offer. It's safe to say that Pyesta has, after just one visit, become a firm favourite, and we shall be descending upon them at every opportunity - and next time, we'll bring our friends too!

    Second visit in a couple of weeks, this time we visited with friends. We had 4 different small plates, and 4 different large plates between us. The only dish that wasn't a hit with all of us was the Beef in peanut sauce. Being regular visitors to Cheltenham, I am sure we will be back.

    Food was greasy, side salads were not fresh. Waitor struggled to understand our requests. Ran out of lager on tap, only had 2 bottles in the fridge. One of the main courses came out almost 10 minutes after everyone elses. Certainly not value for money.

    Having a set menu without any choice just for valentine's was a bit of a shock. I wouldn't have come if I'd known I couldn't choose. It's a shame as I came once before and loved the menu.

    Went to Pyesta for their first tasting menu experience. This was accompanied by a flight of wines. The whole event was a great success, and we look forward to some of the menu items from that evening being incorporated in the main menu - and, indeed, to the tasting menu being repeated from time to time

    Great food and service. Good range of different food freshly cooked . The waitress was able to advise on the dishes and recommend the amount to order. This turned out to be exactly right. The atmosphere was brilliant with all the restaurant guests getting to know each other during the evening. The Manager was very attentive and even cam round to each table to ensure we had a good evening. We will be back
