We had a family dinner for 19 people on Saturday 11 February. While the service was friendly there only seemed to be one waiter looking after the entire restaurant. We had garlic pizza bread to start which was cold and the mains took approx 1 1/2 hrs to come out. Food was okay but not hot. Considering the mains were... More

Gusto's was worth a visit although it took the third time lucky to find it open! We overlooked the harbour from an elevated position, enjoyed our meal, paid a fair price and found the service friendly. Well worth recommendation.

If you want great view, great food and outstanding service. Gusto is the place to go. Food Aspect - Fish is one the most difficult ingredient to master. But they did it exceptionally well. They are one of the few restaurants who managed not to over cook fish. Lamb was also well executed. The dish showed a lot of technique... More

Been going to this restaurant almost every time I visit New Plymouth, and they have never failed to deliver. On last visit, ordered the Flambeed chicken liver main, and it was delicious. The venue of course is beautiful, and that matched by good lunch goes a long way in making your day

We were quite a large party, celebrating a milestone birthday. We had previously visited for a 40th wedding anniversary lunch. Once again we were very happy with our choice of venue. We ordered a number of different meals which were delivered promptly and all were delicious. The large windows overlooking the harbour make it a very pleasant venue.

As a regular to Gustos I was shocked and surprised today to find the meal was appalling. We had our usual fish platter - a couple of the oysters were so off we sent them back but gamely worked through some of the rest of the platter before giving up. Although the staff arranged for extra scallops and fish these... More
