I ate at Gusto last night as part of a work Christmas party. The food was above average for a festive menu and timing was good (not so fast that you were rushed out but not so slow between courses). The cocktails were delicious and service was good.

The restaurant itself is beautiful inside with a lovely atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We chose the 2 course meal for £12.95 but I don't think it was value for money. My friend ordered the monkfish and had to pay an extra £1 for potatoes, the size of the meal was terrible, very small and not substantial,... More

We had a little shaky start with gustos after phoning to confirm our table and getting a very rude response to a few questions! However after complaining to the front of house Ricardo he could not have been any more helpful and made us feel very welcome, the food was excellent as was the atmosphere in the restaurant! Will definitely... More

Called in here during the Light Night celebrations which started at 1.00 Sunday afternoon on the 20th November. A deceiving place from the outside. On the inside, a very nice place with a good atmosphere. Good selection of drinks served by friendly staff. It looks like the food was good and is obviously a popular place.

Thank Steve W

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
