We went to Gusto for dinner last night. It was in the space that Peter Gordons Dine had been in. We had eaten at Dine a few times and it was formal and the tables were very close together.
Gusto is more casual with more space and a casual vibe.
There were 6 of us and 4 of us from Auckland with 2 guests from Wellington.
It was a very enjoyable evening. The company was great but the highlight was the food.
We ordered plates to share. Our waitress recommended 4 entrees and then 4 mains with sides.
Every dish was outstanding with very interesting flavours. Like another poster in this forum, the porcine risotto and boar ragu were out of this world. The potatoes ..ordered for the boys but the girls ate then too were delicious!! My dessert was the pannacotta with pine nuts and passionfruit was outstanding. Please note that the chocolate bar for dessert is a chocolate bar. Don't order it as all the other desserts are brilliant and you will be envious of the others. The rumbaba and the hazelnut with salted caramel....
The food was not slow but not fast.The service was excellent.
If you want a dinner out that is not to formal but with great food , I would highly recommend Gusto.
