Oasis in the desert

We were on our way to Todos Santos and saw the signs along the road for this restaurant and hotel. Followed the signs and came upon this place and were we glad we did. Lilly and her husband have created a wonderful oasis in this barren land. They are right next to the beach so you have a wonderful... read more

My partner and I first stayed at the lovely boutique Hotel Posada La Poza about 6 years ago before purchasing property near Todos Santos and recall having some great breakfasts as guests of the hotel. But only recently we returned on 2 occasions to have dinner in El Gusto, the hotel's restaurant. We were warmly greeted by the owners amidst... More

Our party of 5 had spent an drove out to El Gusto. Having eaten there before, I had raved to my travelling companions about the spectacular setting and the fabulous food at El Gusto. When we arrived at the locked gated main entrance, we were met by a woman who curtly informed us that they were very busy and we... More

Hi, we are responding to your review instead of asking tripadvisor to remove it. Reason for doing so is that we think it highly unfair to judge our services for something you have not experienced. You were told at the gate that we have no time for showing you around as it was in the midth of a busy lunch... More

The place is a bit hard to find but well worth the adventure. Caring and accommodating staff. We could have lingered the entire afternoon over a delicious lunch of fresh fish, salads and drinks.

We took the drive up to this hotel to enjoy the view, have lunch and review Libusche's art. It was not quite noon and there was only one other table of people. We ordered a drink on the upper patio, decided since we had had a late lunch that we would forego a meal in the meantime and head over... More

thank you for having taken the time to write your report. Maybe it is politically not correct to answer with our viewpoint, but we do it in this case. You entered the restaurant at prime lunch time claiming that you wish to have a table for 6 for lunch. Request which was met and you had two table with a... More

My husband and I had a delicious romantic dinner here. The road there is long and bumpy, up through the desert hills west of Todos Santos, but this oasis at the end is worth it! The restaurant is on the rooftop of a hotel, with shade and a view of a nearby lagoon and beach beyond. At dusk nighthawks fill... More

El Gusto is down some dirt roads about a mile from the center of Todos Santos. (Follow blue signs for La Poza off main road in) Don't be fooled by Trip Advisor that has the location on the mainland! Food is excellent - but not traditional Mexican as the Swiss owners combine local fresh Mexican ingredients with some of their... More

After following a series of signs out of town, we found this beautiful restaurant with its gorgeous views overlooking a fresh water pond and ocean. The food was fresh creative fusion mexican. Service was efficient and polite. We were lucky enough to watch the whales migrating which was a wonderful addition to this beautiful place.

Based on the reviews of this restaurant we were looking forward to dining here and trust me you have to want to go there to find it (although the signs do help). The view was amazing and our waiter was very polite and made us feel welcome. However, the food was rather disappointing. I love chicken tortilla soup and was... More

We walked here from the beach, which I don't recommend. We scrambled over rocks and through some mucky swamp in the dark in order to get to the restaurant and showed up a little disheveled. The owner was gracious and let us in. The food was absolutely delicious - maybe the best I had in Baja.
