Service was good, the restaurant is easy to access, we got the seat we asked for which is by the beach, food and drinks were good and big portion. Ordered 1 pizza and 1 lasagna for sharing with my husband and parents in law. The...portion is enough considering we just had nasi kandar 4 hours before and we are still quite full. View was good, i didnt get the sunset view i was hoping for i think the cloud is covering it, it rained so hard the next morning . Overall it was a good experience definitely will come again.More

This is our second visit to Gustoso this month. We have yet to try everything on the menu but so far we have really enjoyed the food there especially the risotto. What makes this restaurant stand out is the staff. The service is impeccable especially...Mr Jelani, the restaurant manager. We were really well taken care of and this made our visit a truly memorable one. Thank you for the wonderful service. We will certainly make Gustoso our restaurant of choice.More

Great place to meet at the beach bar for a few drinks with the Sunset and then dinner at Gustoso. Sad to hear Mario is heading back and hope his replacement will be as good! Jalani always is there to ensure that everything is perfect....Well done! Thank you!More

As we booked the table 4 days earlier through email & website, En Jelani managed to contact myself and explain further on the menu, the table set up and the special arrangement for my sister’s birthday. On the day itself the team greet us with...smile and the table position they provide us is as per request, by the beach with a sunset view. Stunning! The food was amazing especialy their signature Pizza Regina Margherita. The complimentary birthday cake is a Top Notch! Intead of a slice of cake, En Jelani and team compliment us with a whole chocolate cake. Superb! The downside are the staff should be more self volunteer to help taking a picture of us without asking. Moreover, the staff should aware that the cake arrangement is a suprise, but it has been spoiled when one of the staff brings us plates before the cake is serve! We were so frustrated. Thus these area needs to be improved.More
