Employer information

Baresca family (registered company name Baresca tapas Ltd.) commits to providing outstanding customer experiences. Back in 1982 when our parents opened our original family bistro ‘Perkins’, they liked to treat customers as if they were entertaining in their own home- always giving their absolute best, catering for the individual, and bending over backwards to ensure everyone was happy. This way people walked away telling all their friends and family what a great time they had! We have inherited this same ethos right through to today.
