We visited this little restaurant on The Waterfront in K.K one night.
There was a small group of us.
There was a smell about the place..
We waited and waited for the food.
Slow service Slow food!
And all the time this smell about the place.
Maybe it was the water.
The Slow service took about an hour.
The food was not all that great.
We get much better in K.L.without the smell.
The little (Italian Chef? )man in the kitchen could not keep up with the busy night.
Food Slow cooking not worth the wait....
And the smell was still there when we left a bit poorer but WISER. ...

Every time we visit KK we go to Gusto as we know we will have an excellent meal and this time was no exception. The food is cooked especially for you so you must be patient and enjoy the view, sipping on your wine and munching on a starter and watching the boats sail by. Portions are excellent and more than adequate for my big appetite

We had dinner here one night at KK and this was very good Italian cuisine. Sure we waited a while but that is what the sign says and it was worth the wait. If you want fast food go up the road to the stalls on the sea front. Portion sizes were good and food was very tasty. Great location overlooking the harbour. If you come here just be patient it is worth it. Have a glass of wine while waiting!

We had just arrived in KK and we were looking for somewhere that we could get something to eat without having to stand on ceremony too much. When we arrived, I think the chef had just about finished up, but they fired back up for us. Neither of us were up for anything fancy and the food was good quality when it arrived. If I had have checked tripadvisor before going, and seen it quite high up on the ratings, I might have wanted to "test" the Italian chef a bit more. All, in all though, we were satisfied with our food and if we were that way inclined (we never go back to the same restaurant when on holiday), we would definitely go back.

Great setting by the way.... Overlooking the sea.
