Had a lovely brunch in the warm interior while watching the storm and breakers come over the breakwater and the waves breaking just under the deck; we could have been on a cruise ship! Service was attentive and spot on, my husbands chefs bacon & egg burger and my seaside poached eggs with a side of bacon & spinach was... More

Visited earlier in the week. The restaurant has excellent views out onto the port and ocean. Although it is winter the location was very warm and accommodating with the fire in the foyer and heat pumps creating a nice ambiance. From the moment we entered we were made to feel welcome by Kim, who provided first class service with nothing... More

I recently dined at Gusto Restaurant. Being winter, it was a cold evening, but the restaurant exuded cosy winter comfort, as did the choice of food on the menu. Kim waited on our table, and was very happy to titivate the menu to suit diners' requirements, offering professional tips regarding food choices. Orders were all delivered together, which was great.... More

Great atmosphere and service, staff (Kim) were so helpful and nothing was a problem, steak was AMAZING and deserts looked fantastic (couldn't quite manage one as main was filling enough!)

We had dinner in Gusto on our 1st night in New Plymouth. We were warmly greeted and well attended to by Kiren. The service was fast and efficient. Ordered the seafood platter for our entrée, good selection of shrimps, mussels, smoked salmon, oysters and bread. For mains, we had the pork belly, lamb and squid. Big portions, nice presentation and... More

Despite numerous visits to Taranaki I'd never been to Gusto before. This gem is hidden away, right on the water not far from the port. Our table was right by the window, and I thoroughly enjoyed both the gorgeous winter sunshine and the ever changing view of the sea. I had crumbed fish with broccoli salad - then spent the... More

Talk about blowing expectations! My partner and I came in for lunch on Tuesday. The two young chefs who cooked up an absolute storm in there! I highly recommend the chicken open sandwich, there is something magical they do with the hollendaise sauce 10/10 Definitely will be returning in near future
