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.

My wife and I found this place because of some signs pointing to it around Todos Santos. It's very much off the beaten path, but easy to find as there are signs the whole way. You have to take a dirt road for quite a while to get there, so be prepared to think you've gone too far. The hotel... More

We had another great meal at El Gusto on a recent trip to Todos Santos. The owner, Juerg, is a great host as well as a fine chef. I had the tortilla soup--the best I've had--and the steak arrechera, which was beautifully seasoned and perfectly cooked. They have an excellent selection of older wines from the Guadalupe Valley, which is... More

El Gusto is the house restaurant of Posada La Poza about a 5 minute drive out to the beach. The upper deck has an amazing view of their gardens, the lagoon and the ocean. A great place to relax at lunch or to watch the sunset. The food is excellent but not really mexican. More gourmet continental. The fresh fish... More

My wife and I had lunch here after walking down the beach from Playa La Cachora. Lunch was served on the rooftop pation which had a great view of the freshwater lagoon at Playa La Poza. There was enough of a breeze that several customers were wrapping themselves in the towels that were provided by the restaurant. We both had... More

Local friends had highly recommend we eat at El Gusto restaurant in the Posada La Poza boutique hotel in Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico. We were surprised at how long the dirt road was, but followed the signs to a truly unique location. The hotel is set within a natural palm tree oasis, on the edge of a lagoon, with a... More

This is a hidden gem heading south from Todos Santos to the lagoon and beach. Just a fantastic secluded spot, a rooftop dining experience overlooking the lagoon. The food was delicious - fresh and local. A magical place - you should go if you are in Todos Santos (or drive up from Cabo - about one hour)
