Gusto: The Restaurant for Cashless Travelers We had trouble finding a restaurant that accepted credit cards. Luckily, we found Gusto, a small restaurant located in the center of El Nido. Positives: * The restaurant accepts credit cards, which is rare in the Philippines. (And without surcharges) * The service was good. The waitresses were friendly and attentive. * The food was good. The lasagna I ordered was delicious, and the staff went out of their way to replace the salad with fries, which was much appreciated. Areas for improvement: * The wine list could be improved by adding more details about the wines offered. Conclusion: We had a good time at Gusto. We highly recommend this restaurant to all travelers. The food is good, the service is friendly, and you can get work done.
If you want a little change from Filipino cuisine, here they offer really nice burgers, pasta and ice cream. During my stay I had a chicken burger with fries and it was cooked beautifully! Also air con and fast WiFi, ideal place to eat lunch and catch up on work/research while on holiday. Thank you!
We’ve been back here a few times as it’s probably one of the best spots in El Nido for breakfast! We still need to sample the lunch menu but can only assume it’s just as good. The staff here are incredibly friendly and welcoming too! If you’re in El Nido you have to try here!
Went here for brunch! Coffee beans has a molasses / brown sugar taste profile. I like it. Ordered their special, the Pan Seared Fish on Asian Curry Sauce. Fish was perfectly cooked. Omg. First time eating Sagisi Fish and it was fatty and soft and melts in your mouth. The curry sauce however was the deal breaker. Didn’t taste like curry and has a potent pineapple(?) or mango(?) flavor which I honestly don’t get. Been asian all my life and never encountered this kind of curry. I hope it was a more potent curry instead of it’s sweet fruity flavor. I went here at around 2:45 and dined indoors. The whole time I was eating here, I’m surrounded by flies. Staff offered me a candle though. They’re very nice and attentive.
The Food was delicious. Ariane is very nice, friendly and helpful. Lasagne and gelato were delicious. If you are coming to El Nido you need to eat here.
