A group of us went to Ussco for a beautiful meal. We were greeted with a local guy playing a guitar and singing pop songs really well. The waiting staff was great. The wine list was expensive but that didn't hold us back as there was a good choice of NZ and local wines and cocktails.I had the duck which... More

We decided to go to this restaurant after seeing that it is the number two restaurant in Gisborne on Trip Advisor. We were very disappointed. I ordered the chicken with bread sauce, and they swapped vegetables for the seafood garnish, as I don't eat seafood. I am sure that my chicken was boiled, and consequently absolutely tasteless, with no herbs... More

A fabulous meal. Some of the best snapper that I have ever eaten. Lovely wine and superb profiteroles. Polished off with magnificent malt. This was a meal I dream for. Top this off with service par excellence (English of course, even if that was Crewe).

Many of the 22 in our group ate at this restaurant for dinner, and we were all surprised and delighted at the quality of the food. It exceeded expectations. Recommended.

This was undoubtedly the best meal I've ever had in a Gisborne restaurant. My husband and I had a main course each, and dessert, and definitely felt full by the end of the night. If you're planning on three courses, skip lunch! I chose the duck for my main. It was the most expensive dish on the menu ($44NZD) and... More

We got off to a bit of a false start with this property. Having made internet reservations and having had them confirmed by email we were a little taken aback when it became clear that something had gone wrong and there was no record of our booking. Not to worry said the delightful young woman who was dealing with us... More

We live in Tauranga but are originally from Gisborne. One of the things we always look forward to when we come back to Gisborne is dining out at Ussco. The food is amazing and the staff are very obliging. The dude playing the guitar and singing just adds to the relaxed and laidback atmosphere that we always experience at Ussco.... More

This restaurant made our stay at Gisbourne and the service and food was a hit with the entire family. It's a nicely decorated candle lit and great if you are wanting a romantic meal. Service was quick. Drinks brilliant and the food was awesome ... lots of choices.
