Visited for dinner stunning location, exquisite food and friendly staff, well priced for the restaurant it is. We had the chicken wontons and scallop dish to start followed by the scotch fillet and venison rack, we had to try the desserts too and they were delish choc deluxe cheesecake was a winner with us!

“Superb Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

We purchased a Grab on Voucher for a meal at Gusto, wow the meal was fabulous. The service was excellent and our meals were excellent.The entrée of Paua Ravioli was amazing as was the Queen scallops. The fish of the day was excellent, my Husband was most impressed, and the venison was cooked just as it should be medium rare, we were both extremely pleased with our meals, then came dessert, pear and almond tart and the Creme Brulee . Thank you to the chefs and the waitresses for making our evening something to remember.

Great service, great food, great coffee, what else could you want. Well worth heading out of the city centre for.

“birthday dinner for 6”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

Our party of 6 dined at Gusto on a friday eve, we found the service good with friendly staff.The first course was very good the squid was very nice and well cooked and tender, we all felt it would make a great main course.Some of our party had the fish of the day for mains which was excellent others had the steak which was not great , and the pork was also very average. the deserts were very good, and the coffee good.the wine list ok but not a great selection.
Overall it was ok some of it was good and some not so good.Sorry guys the venue is great but we were a little dissapointed overall.

“Nice location food ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

Lovely setting, nice and clean. I had a prawn starter, maybe I missed it but it was all deep fried with common sauces. Unsure what to do with the supermarket crackers and butter container. My husband had the mussels which I wish I had too. The main, I had the snapper of the day with came with some sort of potato square underneath, no favour and filled with grease, didn't finish it, the fish was over cooked and cooked in a lot of oil, way too much oil, beetroot was nice, beans fine but what's with more grease. The fish should have been served with a white sauce to at least introduce some flavour. Desert beautifully presented and tasted good. I had to ask for a small spoon rather than the domestic large spoon. Service was good, quick. Appreciate my plate not being taken away as soon as I put my knife down!!!!!
