The food was amazing, especially the Bacon Jam and cheese burger. Service just very lacking. Only 2 waiters. We have eaten there 3 times but the service is non existent, not sure if we will go back.

Where to start? The restaurant is in a great location and nicely decorated. They actually have my all-time favourite cider on the menu, which is so hard to find, and the price was extremely reasonable. The paprika poppers were a revelation. I doubt I will...More

Gastao's is a unique local tapas and craft beer house that provides a friendly environment for people to enjoy some of the best locally produced craft beer paired with awesome Portuguese style Tapas. Gastao's will provide some of the best Portuguese flared tapas dishes, inspired by the country's regional cuisine. We will source the right ingredients and liaise with local craft beer providers so that we provide a genuine experience for our customers. Traditionally, the serving of tapas is designed to encourage conversation, because people are not so focused upon eating an entire meal that is set before them. Served with local craft beers, tapas are based on simple, inexpensive ingredients, easy recipes and straightforward presentation. Tapas can be eaten informally 'en la barra' (at the bar) or 'en la mesa' (at a table where enough tapas can be ordered for a full meal). Rustic décor, nice tunes and warming hospitality will help to create the right ambience. What with all those bite-size delicacies to be shared, along with a pitcher of lovely craft beers and a awesome atmosphere. But in a setting like Gastao's, great food and a awesome vibe downright gives itself, body and soul, to a great relaxed time. Picture rich jewel tones and low lights, wrought-iron fixtures and a room that glows gold. Gastao's is where we hope our customers will exceed their expectations and really enjoy what local craft beer and local cuisine has to offer.
