Enjoyed a light lunch with cocktails. Our server was incredible. Made us feel very VIP. Even called a cab for us and escorted our packages from shopping to the cab. Lovely beach front setting. Drinks and ceviche were delicious. Highly recommend this spot

On the beach so it has a great view of the bay. We had breakfast which was just ok. We went back for supper and it was great and it was happy hour. Very good service both times and it was inexpensive.

After a week of sampling SJS restaurants, El Buen Gusto beat the competition with an excellent job of serving three kinds of fish dishes to our table of three. Very well prepared and reasonably priced.
