“Terrible terrible terrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

We went there for an evening meal hoping for a nice steak and a good atmosphere. There was a quiz on that night and the place was packed so we were seated in the furthest corner possible. That wasn't really an issue as we were hungry and really looking forward to a good steak. We ordered a cola and a sangria which had a fly in it and asked for it to be changed and it still ended up on the bill. When our meals came(sirloin and a fillet) they were over cooked, chewy and covered in sauce. The meal was supposed to come with potatoes but instead we got hard inedible chips. I asked about the potatoes and was told there wasn't any. We sent both our meals back. It is the first time that I have ever given any food back in over 30 countries I have visited. The second meal time was a bit better. It was edible but not worth the money.

“It's got everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Go for a meal, or order a takeaway.
Really nice and cosy restaurant (we were there in December) lovely log fire.
Excellent service good food, one blip our Xmas pud was a bit dry, and hard, otherwise could not fault it. especially the "deal prices".
Main course food served on nice hot plates, a bit unusual in this area, but very welcome.
Joanne the waitress spoke very good English, and was a very pleasant well presented person, and knew her job.

“Restaurant with swimming pool: what else?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We spent two weeks in Luz last September and Gusto was one of our favorite places for dinner.
Each time with a very friendly welcome we appreciate the large terrace to taste a various list of delicious meals.
Music live every week end and Gusto can pick you up at your hotel and drive you back after dinner.
My favorite dish: Pasta with sea food.

“Set lunch menu great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Went here for lunch on the way back from Sagres.

Hey have a three course lunch for €9.50 which is great value, chicken Pirie Pirie was nice but the desert was a little poor.

Definitely recommend for a meal away from PDL centre

“worst ever meal after 15 yrs in algarve”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Sunday lunch.

Our beef is T bone.

Ok we thought that's a bonus.---------------Not.

The most chewy and uncut-able meat ever.

Sorry none of us can eat this - answer i told you it was T bone in his surly manner.

Unclean Unorganized and Unpleasant DONT GO.
