I've been here twice now and each time I didn't feel as though I had value for my money, compared to other places that charge get the same amount. Still it was nice food though. The view over the water is excellent.

Whilst Gusto is predominantly a seafood restaurant, located on the water's edge, the menu is extensive and I believe caters for all tastes and dietary requirements. We chose snapper and gurnard and both were excellent. For dessert we shared the heated Ngamoutu apple crumble, amazing!

Extremely worn vinyl couches in "fly corner", crate a negative rather than positive setting. Service, below the standard one would expect at this lovely setting. staff preferring to chat rather than place looking after their customers first. We helped ourselves to the water. Lunch menu was fine and food good.
