Description: Gusto Lounge Bar & Bistro is at the heart of Southampton's cultural centre and the gateway to the City. If you are a visitor to the city using the busy central station, the ever popular Mayflower theatre which is home to most of the biggest west end musicals and plays or the newly opened sea city and titanic museum you will find us ideally placed. Our lounge bar is located on the ground floor. This is a casual dining environment. The ‘All Day Menu’ is served here on a walk in only basis; so casually walk in, sit down and then order at the bar. Our Bistro is located on our first floor; here you can enjoy a more formal dining experience. Between 5 – 7 pm, the kitchen prioritises the Bistro due to the proximity of The Mayflower, so particularly if you’re a theatre visitor, this is the place to dine.

“Atmosphere,service and taste!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We live in Southampton and eat out a lot so consider ourselves to be a little picky as its easy to compare! We went here after seeing the fabulous Phantom at the Mayflower. The service was the best we had in a long while. The front of house staff are welcoming, polite and friendly. We had the fillet steak which was awesome! Chef was also happy to take our extra needs into consideration without any hassle. Our waitress was lovely and professional but not pretentious. Overall our experience was that the food is superb and the staff and atmosphere make this a perfect place for a delicious dining experience!

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Went with work. Food is severely overpriced for what you get. I had the mushroom ravioli which was extremely dry, many other restaurants usually serve it with a light broth or sauce. Wouldn't go there again as it's nothing special.

“Great for pre theatre”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We had another excellent meal here. Whilst now there is a much reduced menu pre theatre which is annoying the food and staff were top quality and I would still recomment
