“Steak to perfection”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

What an unexpected pleasure. Not French but caters from pasta, seafood, steak and some unusual combinations that work. There were 6 of us and not one plate had anything left on it at the end which is very unusual.
The atmosphere on the water was perfect. We sat outside as there was a large group inside which could have made it a little noisy. Outside is outdoors but under a roof so with the waves rolling onto the beach, the background sounds just made the evening. I had a pepper steak, medium and it was cooked to perfection and the knife sliced through it like butter.
Definitely recommend you try the little piece of Buzios.

“An unexpected pleasure!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

From the street this restaurant doesn't look like anything special, but once you walk through the doors, it's a lovely, calm environment with outdoor seating with views of the small harbour and beach.
The service was good and the food was delicious.

“Another great meal at Cigalon.”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

One of the fixed price menus at Cigalon is a great deal. The food is French based, with a French chef. A little amuse-bouche of pumpkin soup, delicious in house made bread, and the mains, both meat and fish were perfect.
The creme broule was a delight.
Never been disappointed but go with the prix-fixe, the a la carte can be a little expensive, but you are not short changed on the fixed price.

“Give the lobster a try!”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

The atmosphere is nice, but I must say I enjoyed the place much more for the food. The lobster was excellent and the selection of wines very good.
