Gostoso is about off the beaten path but worth the trip. Highly recommend starting with their sushi. Instead of traditional seaweed and rice, they substitute thinly sliced plantain, which was unique and delicious.

We tried Gostoso because of the significantly different offerings from most other places. Service was good and cheerful. The grouper wrapped in bacon kebob is a must try for some excellent flavor blending. Will surely go back.
