Great food and fantastic service. We had so much fun. The waiters are super friendly and efficient. Live music which creates such a good vibe. We were the last table to leave.

I spent a week in Clarens and dined twice at Gosto. It would rank high up on my list of best food/drinks/service experiences in a while. Top quality Portuguese food served by friendly and client centric waiters. Superb wine collection. A must!!!

Went to Gosto’s on our last night in Clarens. Food is abundant, tasty and the ambience was wonderful. The peri peri basting was a delight and service was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
