Having visited in its previous incarnation at Tamarin I was pleased to find the restaurant has kept its eclectic menu, delicious dishes and cracking cocktails. The steak and blue cheese salad is a must. Excellent times.More

Yes it's the same owners, and English lady and her husband. They wanted a location set away from the main road where it was a bit quieter.

Description
Gusto (formerly known as TAMARIN) can now be found in the tranquil gardens of Literati Bookshop. Open from 10am we offer breakfast/brunch, lunch, snacks, dinner & a full bar up to 10:30pm (and later) each & every day throughout the season. Come and linger over a book & a coffee, or indulge in a 3 course meal - entirely your choice! We specialise in Mediterranean cuisine from across the entire region (Spain, France, Italy, Greece, the Middle East & North Africa.) We also offer a highly unique Kashmiri menu from the most Northern reaches of India; a special feature being our exquisitely fragrant Biryani - a must try. Our Deli 2 Go (shop) is also open the same hours. Offering homemade bread, biscuits, cakes, organic cereals & muesli, coffee, tea and much more.
