Great location, but dull interior. Our third visit, for lunch, after 2 dinners, was not memorable. Service was acceptable, but the menu has not changed from the uninspiring brunch/lunch/dinner printed cards. We shared the 'Ploughman's Platter' ($31.00), which lacked imagination. We wonder if the chef has ever had a proper ploughman's lunch! Previously, 2 dinners were disappointing They were high... More

Hi John, Thank you for your review and feedback on your recent dining experiences at Gusto. I’m disappointed that you think our “daily” specials presented on our talk cards are uninspiring. They are offered this way so we can vary our menu on a daily basis while our full menu is presented in a beautiful album. As well as the... More

Enjoyed a great coffee on Waitangi day and pleased to see no surcharge. The venue is awesome, the service is brilliant and the coffee is delectable!

We had our wedding reception at Gusto's and it was perfect. Staff were really helpful and the meal was totally delicious. Great views and atmosphere. Been back a few more times for either a meal or just a coffee.

Sit outside and enjoy the breeze, the smell of salt air, and the killer view. Fodd was great, service was great, prices were fair.

Great location, food good decent menu. The girl that greeted us must have had a fight with her boyfriend or something because she was very grumpy, she must have gone somewhere else as halfway through the next girl was better.

Our Garlic and Herb Bread was very tasty and my Marlborough Sounds Scallops were first class and cooked to perfection and presented very nicely... More

The last three times I have been here the service was terrible. One time they even went so far as to make us feel unwelcome for the heinous crime of being the last people sitting here.
