I've been at the Gusto Beach with a friend last week and the staff was really friendly and caring. The food was good and the price is fair. The wifi wasn't working despite the effort of the waiter to reset the router. That's the only point I think could be improved.

I give this place 4 stars because its location - right on the beach - is lovely. The atmosphere is whimsical and relaxing. The food is okay, but we never went there for the food persay, but more for the comfortable atmosphere. Stay away from the tiramisu...its not made with marscapone but with vegetable oil. Yuck!

Best beach front restaurant--hands down. The food is delicious, many reasonably priced items to choose from, and that view!!! Nothing says vacation better than eating on the sand while looking out into the beautiful ocean.

We went for dinner when they were having their 2 for 1 pasta special. We decided to order fish dishes instead and they were both excellent! I had the ahi tuna dish.. DELISH! My boyfriend had the sea bass which was also outstanding. Wish we could give extra stars !!!!!!!!

My friend and I visited Gusto Friday night for the live jazz music and a drink. After looking at the menu, we decided that pizza was also a good idea... we weren't disappointed. The mojitos and sangria went down easily, the pizza was amazing, and the atmosphere and awesome vibe of the saxophone in the background was awesome!

This place is so chill! Food is great, must try the cheesecake. Ask for Nina. We hope to make it back for a 3rd visit before we leave. Oh and the band that played on Sunday may 31 was fantastic.

We stumbled upon Gusto on our 1st day in Samara, and we are so happy we did!! We spent the entire afternoon enjoying food, drink and fun in the sun. The staff at Gusto is fantastic and attentive. Mateo asked us all our names, and when we returned for lunch the next day, he was just as friendly, and the... More
