A great visit to Breakwater Bay - well worth the meal and service is great. Used this place for a business lunch and was just superb. Fast service, lovely venue.

“Great service, and great people.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

The snapper was fresh, supurbly cooked and presented. A very good meal. The night we visited there were no other diners on a Thursday night, yet the service standard was still maintained to a very high level. An excellent ,enu with choice for everyone and very reasonable priced. Good wine list too. Recommended and we will certainly go back on a busier night. Perhaps on a weekend.

“Absolutely fabulous food and fantastic service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2012

We were in New Plymouth on business and went to Gusto for dinner. Usually a waterfront restaurant is the kiss of death for good food. Not so for Gusto. We enjoyed every course and the waitress couldn't do enough to make our dinner a truly memorable evening. This is the place to eat when in New Plymouth. I started with the steak tatare (not served traditionally) - was delicious and my partner had the spring rolls which were loaded with seafood. I chose fish of the day for my main and my partner had the land and sea (carpet bag steak- an oldy but a goody). Both again were sensational with a wonderful array of baby veg to go with them. We could only manage one dessert and it was a perfect way to end our dinner. It's on the edge of town but is worth seeking it out

“Fab food! Super views! Great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2012

For a special evening as a couple or a large or small group Gusto always do it well and go the extra mile..The food has been consistently excellent every time for us and is well worth trying...The pork belly and the Blue cheese grilled sirloin are delectable.
The lunchtime menu is super as are the views out over the sea and port ...amongst other lovely salady meals we have had the antipasto platter which has a wide range of interesting a delectable delicacies...couldn't quite eat it all so the lovely lady on duty put offered us a take home parcel.
