Tara na sa Pyesta – welcome To Pyesta!!
We are a truly independent local restaurant, serving a selection of authentic & really tasty Filipino dishes. We are proud to say that we are the first Filipino restaurant ever to open in Cheltenham.
Portia and Rose, the founders, had a vision to create a restaurant where every meal is a celebration of Filipino taste and culture. With this in mind, our mission is to provide every single customer with a genuine warm welcome and amazing food from our homeland in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.
“Pyesta” means “fiesta” in Filipino, which is a time for feasting and merrymaking. Come and join us for a feast and some fun!!
Modern & Classic Filipino Dishes
So what is Filipino food and what can you expect from Pyesta’s mix of classic and contemporary Filipino dishes?
Ours is a relatively new but well-respected member of the international foodie scene. We have many different cooking styles from our beautiful islands, plus historical influences from Spain, the USA and even China.
Essentially it’s an east meets west mix of sweet, sour, salt and generous seasoning with a slight sour note from vinegar.
For a couple of examples, there’s our national dish, Adobo – a savoury, tangy dish made with chicken, pork (+ our vegan mushroom version) that’s been marinated in vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, and other spices.
Another popular dish is sisig – a hot sizzling mix of pork and vegetables. As the late great Anthony Bourdain said, ‘possibly the best thing you could ever eat with a cold beer’
We have a good selection of vegan and gluten free options – try out our ginita’ang kalabasa. Squash and beans cooked in a coconut milk sauce, seasoned with vegan ‘fish’ sauce for that umami hit.
And of course, you can’t forget about the famous Filipino dessert, halo-halo, which is a colourful and refreshing mix of shaved ice, ube ice cream, sweet beans, fruits, and other toppings.
At Pyesta, you’ll find all these dishes and more, served with a genuine smile and a warm welcome. So if you’re looking to try something new and exciting, come and experience the joy of Filipino food and hospitality at Pyesta Filipino Restaurant in Cheltenham.
