Can't compare to other resturants in PM but this place is average. It's clean and has good service. The food is nothing special...

I always use Gustitos as I love their milkshakes of various flavours made with delicious ice creams and a range of beautiful cakes and pastries both savoury and sweet. The staff are lovely and always friendly. My favourite is the castana (brazil nut) milkshake - a must try! :)

Besides the fact that everytime you eat in this place a part of the income goes to charity, food is delicious and varied, and it's a clean restaurant.

Had wonderful papass rellanos, tamales and dessert. We dropped by for an afternoon break and late supper. We were never disappointed. One night it rained and the staff moved people under umbrellas. We all enjoyed a good laugh and a quick move.

Some of the best cakes we had in Peru. Great spot for a tea break. The range of cakes was impressive and of the three our group had, all were tasty :-)

It's fair to say in my two months in Puerto, Gustitos was where we always visited the weekends we were in town. Great hamburguesas, milkshakes, empanadas, fresh jugos and the torta de chocolate is delicious. Very friendly staff and a short wait time for food. Free wi-fi is a bonus.

They serve the best Juice and Ice Cream in town. Very refreshing after a long day in the Jungle. The tropical flavors were the best.
