“Nice vibe, terrible food”
Review of Gusto

After reading all the rave reviews, my husband and I were really looking forward to dinner at Gusto. The restaurant itself was really nice - friendly service and a showcase for local Tunisian art. We enjoyed browsing the gallery while waiting for our meals to arrive (which took almost an hour!!!). The food however, was very disappointing. My seafood platter was served cold, and was neither fresh nor tasty. My husbands medium-rare steak was served almost raw. We are not fussy eaters, but really had trouble finishing our meals here. To top it off, we felt the prices were way too high to justify the poor quality of the food. I'd recommend Gusto for the vibe, but not for food...there are better options in town.

A small, tranquil restaurant where one finds also works of art by Tunisian artists as well as a lounge area for having tea/coffee and snacks whilst socialising with persons of similar interests - good food and peaceful ambiance.
The owner is extremely friendly, a typical Tunisian, and goes round every table even asking to sit down and chat and give advice on Djerba! A true example of socialising.
The food is prepared to the best and excellence of tastes and varies from Tunisian and European, with a typical Meidterranean touch. One can see the young chef busying about alone in the kitchen and the waiter helping him in the kitchen and serving outside together with the owner. It is an outstanding feat and much praise goes to the three of them.
The decorations are white and fresh, with soft lights and a relaxing courtyard; while the lcation is near the Mosque of the Turks, lovely lit up at night, and just about 300 metres from the centre of the Medina. Prices are within average and huge value for money. I highly recommend this unique restaurant with Parisian touches. Open for lunch, dinner and afternoon tea!
