Restaurant description

With views stretching over the Algarve, Gusto by Heinz Beck offers authentic Mediterranean cuisine in modish surroundings. Melting steaks and freshly-caught seafood dominates the menu, and is cooked in plain view in an open-show kitchen. A resident DJ offers late night entertainment, while the sprawling cigar terrace is ideal for post-dinner drinks. Inside, the decor is moody and modern, with statement globe lighting and plush leather banquettes littering the dining room.

    Overall a good experience. We had the seven course tasting menu. The level of service was excellent as were the wine pairings. However some of the dishes lacked flavour and only 4 of the 7 were of a really good standard. They were all presented beautifully but were either under or over seasoned or quite bland. Our favourites were the Amberjack tartare, the Saccottini a bras, the veal with summer truffle and the Apricot soup and yoghurt ice cream. The bar and restaurant are beautiful and it is interesting to watch the chefs at work. Presentation of dishes and level of service of Michelin standards, but unfortunately taste of dishes not quite there.

    Lovely meal served by friendly and knowledgable waiters in a beautiful setting. We had the seven course dining menu and we enjoyed all the courses particularly the fresh pasta course, one of their signature dishes a real taste explosion in the mouth.

    Waiting 20 mins for aperitifs is not acceptable but after that hiccup we had a lovely meal. Definitely recommend the wine flight with tasting.

    What a wonderful experience! We had the seven course tasting menu which was absolutely delicious - every element on the plate was extrodinary and the combinations of flavours were fantastic. I loved every part of my dining experience from the extremely professional and friendly waiting staff, the dinning room itself, the cocktails and the food. I will definitely be back and I can't speak more highly of this place!

    This superb restaurants was one of the reasons we booked to stay at Conrad Algarve. We were not disappointed! The food was sensational with several of the plates being works of art. Textures of the food were something special with interesting mixtures of cold ingredients working well on the plate. We went for the 7 course tasting menu with matched wines and the sommelier was one if the most knowledgable we have come across. Wines ranged from Marsala with the starter some interesting reds and whites from various parts if Portugal. Also a lovely sparkling wine and finishing with a very pleasant glass of port(of course!). The stand out dish for me was the Japanese garden which Heinz beck has created especially for his new restaurant in japan. This was a feast fir the eyes and the palate with green tapioca over carpaccio of langoustine. My partner raved about his broccoli ravioli - it really was amazing with pasta that just melted. Now admittedly you have to travel a long way to experience Gusto but the hotel is also amazing - one of the best we have ever stayed at and true five star so you could combine the two. If you are not inclined to travel to Conrad algarve then "The pass" restaurant near Crawley is of similar quality. Finally the staff should have a special mention as throughout this entire hotel, including Gusto, they are attentive and superb. And yes we are here for a few more days and yes we have booked to go back later in the week. When you've travelled so far............
