A day prior to opening its doors for the guests, Restos, the neighborhood roof-top bar & cafe was inaugurated with a red carpet launch on College Road in Jinnah Super. ­The Ambassador of Argentina and Dean of the Diplomatic Corp Islamabad Rodolfo Martin J. Saravia honored the occasion along with other foreign dignitaries and diplomats. With a very finely selected Continental Menu, the café is all geared up to serve Italian, Mexican and seafood choices. Apart from a very serene roof-top, the café also has a very cozy coffee bar for the coffee lovers.

­The rooftop dinning concept was the brainchild of Mr Tahir Qureshi who is known to this city because of Qureshi Frozen Foods in Kohsar Market. ­The face and name of the café has been given by Xanthum Team who has developed the brand of Restos.

Rodolfo Martin J Saravia formally opened the restaurant and expressed his delight at being present on the occasion. He said: `I am very pleased to be here. ­This is a culmination of the work of two of my dear friends: Mr Qureshi who is a symbol of good meat in Pakistan and I am an Argentinean and we know about good meat and Mr Omar Durrani who runs a fabulous tourism agency.

Dinner was served on the roof-top with live music by famous Raees violinist, featuring high end menu including Singaporean Rice, Mexican Chicken, Pepper Beef Steaks, Valencia Fish and Penne Alfredo for the launch, the restaurant will have a proper ala carte continental and bar-be cue menu. While the food at the launch was pleasant enough, the outstanding feature was the quality of the meats used and this may well be the distinguishing aspect of Restos. ­e beef steaks were tender with a Pakistani touch to the spices while the Valencia Fish was light but tasty.

What stood out was an assortment of salads which were fresh and appetizing. ­The live barbeque was delicious not in keeping with the rest of the menu but by far the hottest part of the dinner and very well made.

Commenting on the interior design, Kazim Hasan; the Interior Designer of Restos said “Attention to detail in any venture is very important which was kept in mind while designing the interior.”
