Been twice now to El Gusto. Sitting outside and inside. Smart decor and open kitchen. Staff well trained and friendly. Going back again before we leave to go back to UK. They also do a good early dining menu Mondays to Saturdays up to 7pm. Food is excellent as is wine. Thoroughly recommend.

Unfortunately the luxury burger was totally overcooked & dry. When serving a luxury burger the customers ought to be asked how they want the meat to be cooked.

This is the first time that I've been to this restaurant for dinner - previously I've just had coffee outside. The make over is really lovely and smart and I like an open kitchen so you can see what's going on. However, I thought that the food was good but nothing special. The reason I have said "very good" above... More

A party of four had diner here. We all different meals which were very good apart from one starter - Piri Piri Prawns which were small in size and only a small portion. Not as good for this starter as many other restaurants. The mains were very good especially the Fish & Chips in crispy batter, delicious. Need to book... More

Fantastic food, we only stopped for a light lunch but it was fab! Very reasonable prices on food and drinks. Fabulous decor, the refurb is superb. Staff are friendly and accommodating especially with our two little ones. Would highly recommend.

We have been using this restaurant for a number of years and by and large the food has always been very good. Fish and Chips, Gambas pil pil, steaks and Sunday lunches are all good. The terrace is a great meeting place during the day and an ideal spot for people watching. The restaurant itself was always a little dark... More
