Nice venue and good service

The venue is a lovely spot near the water in a modern building which is nice and warm. The staff are very friendly and personal, which makes you feel very much at home. Regarding the food, I did think it a bit mass produced - I had a house special pie, which was not really a pie, more like... read more

I had lunch at Gusto recently and the food and coffee was well presented and delicious. The coffee even had designs on them. Everything is done with a personal touch. The service was efficient and pleasant. Theres always a warm welcoming smile when you arrive. Would recommend eating and having coffee there to everyone. The staff are exceptional!

This was the perfect venue to celebrate Mum's 80th birthday. The setting and outlook were beautiful. For a large group the service was great with all our meals out together and everyone was impressed with their meals and the selection on offer. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. We were surprised at how reasonable the costs for all... More

Never get tired of Gusto, fabulous meals and the view is great, right on the waterfront by the port, interesting in any weather. If there was only one thing that could be changed that would be that they do need some sort of sun screen or curtains as when the sun pours in it is very difficult, end up having... More

Mon-Wed 10am-3pm, Thur and Friday 10am-late, Sat 9am-late and Sunday 9am-3pm. We had to make the decision for close Mon-Wed nights a... More

We recently used a Grab One voucher here and we're expecting a set menu. However, we had the normal menu with no restriction on price. Great service as usual. Also went for lunch in the sun for my husband's birthday on Saturday. Superb.

We felt this was an ideal evening. The service was attentive, the food as expected, was lovely, the ambience was very pleasnt and the view of course, being on the waters edge,watching the ships coming in and out was perfect. A great palce for evening dining.
