Went here on a Tuesday night on recommendation from our accomodation. The place was very busy but service still was great. Also - the food was fantastic - so fantastic that we returned the next evening instead of trying another restaurant. The waiter also recommended a nice wine for our fish - not the most expensive but one who suit... More

I had heard many positive comments about USSCO and I wasn't disappointed. The atmosphere, warmth, friendly, obliging staff and excellent food was a treat. I would definitely go back.

Lovely evening at a lovely venue with a great atmosphere. Our English spoken waiter was amazing, talking us through each course, and his recommendations could not be faulted. The gentleman on the guitar topped off this lovely evening which my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed. Not one fault.....we will definitely be back. Thanks

i have been to many resturaunts throughout the country luckily enough on buisness. The meal i had here would be in the top 5 easily. Great menu and ambience. This would give some of the upper end eatery's at the Viaduct in Auckland a good run for their money.A must if you in Gisborn overnight.10/10

We arrived before dinner service and were keen for a drink and nibble. They kindly seated us on the couches, and gave us a food treat to keep us going until the dumplings we had ordered arrived. They went beyond the call of duty and the food was amazing. Trendy and cool set up and atmosphere.

It's Easter Sunday, overnighting in Gisborne and after a late afternoon walk realised pretty much most of Gisborne was closed, apart from a number of cheap and cheerful take aways. Couldn't believe our luck, fine dining less than 1 minutes walk from our overnight stay, The Senator Hotel. Opened the red door, walked in and explained we didn't have a... More

One time, we went looking for good food to enjoy and then there was a power cut!! No problem for USSCO, we enjoyed a wonderfull candle lit meal cooked on gas (i presume) in the shadows. Faultless! I love the bar / wine list. There is a cute courtyard ~ Al fresco, and I hear the "DAY OF THE TACO"... More
