A visit on impulse as my wife and I "walked about" in our small town last evening, 21 april '21. We were greeted by a very pleasant waiter who presented us with a tempting mediterranean menu ond wine list. We both chose fish dishes; Cod...for my wife and sea bass for me. both dishes tasted absolutely wonderful, and is recommended for fis/seafood lovers. Finished of with very good traditional tiramisús, coffee and grappa. Loved it! Follow your impulses more often, I woul say....More

We were so looking forward to our meal in El Gusto having read all the great reviews . Unfortunately our experience was disappointing. Two of the 4 of us ordered Lasagna which turned out to be lukewarm. Having returned it to be warned up it...came back once again not hot enough. I was concerned as meat dishes should be served hot and told the waiter the dishes were still only warm . The same food was served again this time piping hot ! This should be the case first time . The restaurant itself was fairly quiet when we were there . No one came near us to apologise and we left the restaurant knowing we wouldn’t be back . Poor customer service. Management please serve all your dishes piping hot and improve your customer service.More

The service was great - little things like bringing a fresh chilled glass for a second drink were really appreciated. Food was delicious - would recommend the carpaccio or mozzarella to start.

We had a great dinner here. The food tasted great and the waiter was super nice to us. The menu didn’t have that many options to choose from, but quality over quantity

This is a lovely Restuarant, been twice during my holidays, the menu at the moment is quite limited but everything is excellent quality. We struggled a little with the wine as they had limited stock but am sure they will get that sorted soon. Service...is attentive and as a family we all enjoyed our meals . Over the two visits we pretty much tried everything on the menu and no one had anything bad. My sons both had deserts and they were superb. It’s not cheap but works out without drinks at for two courses between 22-30 euros per head. Wine is between 18-30euros a bottle Definitely worth a visit IMore

We had reservations about being sat by the side of the road but traffic was quiet and provided a sea view. The food here is absolute top quality. Very friendly and efficient service. For 1 starter (some of the best calamari we have had), a...Spaghetti Carbonara, Spaghetti with prawns and a Sea Bass the bill came to €95 with drinks. Absolutely delicious and would highly recommend.More

We came here twice in our week in Arguineguin because the food was in a different league to the other restaurants we visited. Both times we had the suggested menu and both were outstanding. Service was also friendly and efficient and it well deserves to...be #1 on TA.More

Authentic Italian food that tastes as good as it looks. Definitely worth a visit if you want to eat Italian food in Arguineguin. Mind that the menu is quite limited so you may want to check out their menu online to see if there is...anything you fancy before going.More
