Gusto Restaurant is a new spacious dining experience right on the waterfront, with plenty of deck space for outdoor dining on fine days, or warm, cosy waterfront dining indoors on cooler days or nights. We are open every day for breakfast, lunch or dinner with plenty of parking available. Our chefs source top quality ingredients fresh daily to ensure our meals are enjoyed by everyone, and they come back to Gusto time and again.

Great meal

Went for a Valentine's Day lunch and was totally impressed yet again. The service from Kim was extremely friendly and helpful. We weren't in the best seats as these had obviously been reserved prior but still had a great view of the water.

Had some trouble finding this relatively new restaurant, even though it is clearly signposted once one gets close. (The roading layout in that area near the port has been extensively modified in recent years). The menu offers a wide range of fresh seafood, and the three of us (including one person who is severely gluten intolerant) thoroughly enjoyed our choices.... More

Really looking forward to a nice valtetines meal at Gusto - first time child free in months... We have been many times before for other special occasions and had a wonderful experience. However this time, on arrival we got gunted at by the not very hospitable hostess, who lead us to the worst table in the not packed restaurant. We... More

After some very average waterfront dining experiences in New Plymouth I wasn't expecting much - but what a pleasant surprise! The setting on a hot Summer's day is spectacular, but rather than relying on the view to pull customers in and serving up mediocre dishes Gusto hits the mark with everything that matters - service, setting and (of course) food....

We had an excellent meal here. We were very fortunate with the weather so the view across the port was superb. The service was very attentive, friendly, and just right - there was no feeling of being rushed but then they cleared the plates promptly. But the star is definitely the food. Two in our party had the snapper special... More

Loved our dinner last night. We both had versions of chicken - which were moist and tasty. The licorice icecream dessert was a great experience! Friendly service made for a casual but comfortable experience! Thank you!

Who ever thought of beetroot and coconut as a base for squid? Or licorice ice - cream? Both were exquisite. Beautifully presented and executes. First class for every dish. Thanks.
