Great location

We just went for a drink. We sat on the deck overlooking the harbour. It was very relaxing and soothing. Looking at the meals they looked really good and reasonably priced.

Good choice menu, I had Beef Bourginon which was very tasty, husband had fish which he said was very good. Lovely desserts also. The view is great right on the waterfront , although it was dark so could not appreciate fully. Facilities very clean and tidy, helpful staff. We cannot get used to NZ eating early most restaurants when we... More

Our daughter and son-in-law had their wedding reception here January of this year. More than half their guests were from either Sydney or Melbourne and we're all very keen to impress our visitors. Gusto didn't let us down. The meal was great with everybody being served their fantastic meals at the same time. Service was great and the location perfect.... More

Over the years we been very frequent customers here and had never had a bad experience until this visit.. We arrived at lunchtime and were greeted by a rude and unhelpful young waitress who refused to say hello or smile. When she eventually came over to take our order, again no personality or good service. We ordered a selection of... More

I was given a voucher for this restaurant for xmas. The menu is substantial and my partner and I both ordered the fish of the day which was blue cod on a potato rosti with a creamy sauce and fresh green beans. Two large cod fillets which were slightly undercooked not too much so that it warranted being sent back.... More

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
