I came across Es un gusto earlier. Is it possible to use it as another way of replying to Gracias?

Yes!!! ES UN GUSTO is not used in Spain but yes in Latin America... anyway if you said it in Spain you would be understood with no problem, just that it isn't common

Sounds OK for a waiter, but not many other people would say that.

You could also say "you're welcome" as "el placer es mío" which literally means "the pleasure is mine".
