This restaurant remind me of Italy, Greece or France. A mix of mediteranean colors with a mix of Mediteranean food without forgetting also the very tasty Costarican food. But honestly the best is the PIZZA and the sea Food.
I was eating everyday in El Gusto restaurant as it was inside the hotel where i stayed in Manuel Antonio. The view is perfect and the location is good as it was not far away from Manuel Antonio & the National Park.
I already miss the sea food & Pizza and whenever i go back to Costa Rica, i will for sure visit El Gusto again.

Grazias.
