“More of this sort will enhance the Portuguese life style”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

Great on a sunny day on the beach or just to take some friends for lunch. Food easy, fresh fish, great wines and a wonderful atmosphere. Might just bump into some royalty or celebrity also enjoying the "sights"

“Take a hit for the team”
Reviewed 2 November 2011

I suppose the 1st thing you have to accept about GiGi's is you are going to take a fiancial beating here. Having said that it is a stunningly cool spot with serious people watching credentials. Also barein mind this is a cash only resteraunt so no visa here...
Grub is good particularly the seafood which is priced by the kilo at an eyewatering ROI for the owners. We go there once or twice during our visits to the area & despite the pain it draws us back so it has got that X factor for sure....my little fella is particulary fond of Carlotta the Portuguese water dog belonging the the lady who owns it and he ambles around freely which is nice. sometimes in life you gotta take a hit for the team & I guess GiGis is one of those places.....

“Great Food”
Reviewed 19 September 2011

Beautifull beach side restaurant. The views are beatifull but if you make reservation ask to be completely at the laguna side. You have to seat on wooden bankets but the food and service are really good. Our fish was grilled to perfection, could not be better. The price was correct for the quality given. Do not go if you are a dessert fan, the card with desserts was a dissapointment.

“Ridiculously expensive for a beachside redtaurant”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

Good seafood. Great location.
On the other hand the prices are non sense for what you get in return.
Such a place deserved better quality service.

“Give it a miss”
Reviewed 6 August 2011

Great location shame about the service, GiGi rudeness, massively overpriced for what we got. Very disappointed as we have had good experiences in the past. They are taking thier clientele for granted. Never again.
