    Everything was great until I received my bill. We looked closely to see if I was charged wine that I ordered but did not receive. We didn’t get charged so I paid. When we left I looked again and I noticed I was charged for 5 bottles of sparkling water @12 each!! We only ordered regular water and we thought it was free since they replaced the water before it was empty! At one point it changed to sparkling but we didn’t ask for it as my kids do not like sparkling water. We thought that the water being replaced quickly was great service but it was to charge us for more bottles!! Very disappointed, unfortunately we won’t be going back.

    This was our 2nd time at Keste. We ordered the fried calamari appetizer and it was unedible for the quatity of salt present. We were quite disappointed. The pizzas that followed were ok. They were soggy and lacked taste. The only good thing was the service and the staff was kind enough not to charge us for the appetizer. It will be some time before we go back. There are many places in Montreal to get a true pizza, competition is strong. They need to raise their game.

    I always enjoy coming to Kesté. The food is great. The fried zucchini was really great and the pizza is always very good. I took away one star just because our server was all over the place. He was friendly but we asked for sparkling water twice and never got it. I will still come back again because of the quality of the food.

    Enjoyed a beautiful meal on the patio. Salads were a bit small for sharing but all other appetizers and pizzas were perfect to allow our large group to enjoy a variety of flavours. The pizza dough itself was delicious and enhanced the taste of the toppings. We’ll be back the next time we visit Montreal.
