Gustazo Cuban Restaurant & Cafe

GUSTAZO is one of the very few authentic Cuban restaurants in the Boston area. Located in Waltham downtown facing the Common, it offers traditional Cuban cuisine in a modern and inventive way. The ambiance is reminiscent of Spanish colonial architecture, with hand painted tiles, wall to wall pictures of old Havana and Spanish filigree motives.
Signature dishes include Slow Roasted Pork, Enchilado de Mariscos, Empanadas, Camarones al Ajillo and the luxurious Cuban flan.

"This was my second time at Gustazo's. and as with my first time there, everything was just about perfect. My friend and I were somewhat disappointed that they had run out of the portobello mushroom (large plate), but our disappointment quickly vanished when we devoured the 4 small plates we ordered -- a delicious roasted cauliflower dish, excellent squash fritters with goat cheese, spinach and ricotta empanadas, and a wonderful Spanish frittata with potatoes. Add to this some plantain chips with a tasty side dip, and my friend and I left more than satisfied. Our server was helpful and pleasant, and our plates came out one at a time, which we appreciated, so we could enjoy each dish while it was still hot. The meal ended with a cup of very good cappuccino. Gustazo's is a great restaurant and I will be a customer for (I hope) years to come."

"The plantain chips were good, but pricey, as was everything on the menu. The highlight was the charasco steak. It was tender and flavorful. The plaintains wrapped in bacon were also very flavorful and the goat cheese made for an interesting flavor mix. But alas, two small plantains were over $5 and barely whetted the appetite. The churro's with chocolate dipping sauce looked good, but after waiting 10 minutes trying to get our waitresses attention, we elected to skip dessert and just pay the check. Its a shame, the chef obviously has some real talent, but the poor wait staff put a cloud over what could have been a wonderful evening."

"This is the second time I have been here with friends in the past month and we enjoyed it very much. Food is delicious and I can't wait to try more things when I go back again! As everyone else has bemoaned, the lack of a liquor license is a drawback and I wish that Waltham would rectify that. Otherwise, fantastic."

"A group of four decided to do Cuban tapas. We each selected two small plates and shared. There was plenty of food and it was all delicious. I especially liked the swordfish ceviche and the guacamole. The chips served with the meal were yummy. Ask for bread or it won't be brought over and it took a long time to get the bread. No alcohol yet but they are trying to get a liquor license. Hopefully they will be successful."

"We mainly had tapas: chicken croquettes, pork bellies w/pineapple orange salsa, mussels in creamy chorizo sauce, guava glazed ribs, lamb with cheese sauce, and garbanzos with smokey almond sofrito were all very different but wonderful experiences for the palate. There was a lot of thought put to the combination of sweets, salts, textures and appearance. My favorite was definitely the ripe plantains wrapped in tocino (thick bacon) dotted with goat cheese, oranges and agave. Ordered a second one. My avocado pineapple greens salad was very refreshing. My husband ordered the mango glazed salmon and it was excellent. My nephew had shrimp and he liked it very much. As for desert, we ordered two: flan with coconut on top, with a side of vanilla ice cream and chocolate; and boniatillo de coco, which I had no idea what it was but was very, very nice. I would definitely go back. No alcohol."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. We ordered small plates for seven people, and almost all the dishes were excellent, with very interesting flavors and textures. Also, unlike usual tapas spots, each dish was a decent-sized portion that could easily be shared among four people. Two to 2 1/2 small plates per person are certainly enough. Strongly recommend the plantains wrapped in bacon, the pork belly, the pork ribs, the guacamole (delicious), vegetarian empanadas and the mussels. Also the beet salad. Reviews were more mixed on the seafood dishes. Some of our party liked them, but I thought they tended to be a bit fishy tasting (and I love fish).
Atmosphere is very nice, not too noisy. Lack of liquor license may be an issue for some. No BYOB either.

"I didn't taste everything we ordered (friends' choices) but all the dishes that are up my alley were superb. Once they get their liquor license, crowds will be falling out of the woodwork. I got a kick out of the flourish with which our waiter poured the water! He really knew the huge menu which was also impressive. Next time I'm going to try one of the salads and the salmon entree. Or I might have to do the arroz con pollo one more time!"

"I have been here Sunday brunch, and lunch and dinner during the week. The food has been extraordinary and the service excellent. I had never had Cuban food before but will be back because I want to taste everything on the menu. I would definitely give them 5 stars and have recommend this restaurant to others."

"Dinner and lunch meals never let me know. It always exceeds my expectation. I hope soon they can be granted wine license so people can enjoy more out of it."

"We went there with another couple and the food was outstanding. We went back last weekend with the same couple and another couple. Again, the food was outstanding. Every dish was perfect and I'm not exaggerating. They are waiting for their liquor license, but the food is so good it doesn't matter. At least not to the six of us."

"A memorably delicious meal! No liquor license though, and anything you may find that says you can bring your own is false. No BYOB. The service was leisurely, which was fine because we were a group of 6 and had lots to talk about while waiting. However, had it been just my husband and me, the long wait for the food would have been bothersome. We tried a bunch of appetizers, a couple different entrees and 2 desserts. The favors were fabulous; my mouth waters just thinking about it!"
