We stayed elsewhere in Gizo, but ate at the Gizo Hotel most nights because it was close to where we were staying, and because there are really only two places to eat at night in Gizo.
The quality of the food was good, & the price, while expensive for what the Gizo locals could afford, is around AUD$22 for a main course. Choices were mainly seafood, but for the price, you could get a whole crayfish (lobster), whole crab etc, which in Australia would cost upwards of $70!
If you're really desperate for a glass of wine, buy a bottle (even though it's about AUD$30 per bottle). The 'house wine' is watery & poured out of a flagon.
The service is not fast, but not in Gizo is fast, so the best advice is to get there & order straight away, then sit & relax. One night we ordered & didn't get our meal, so don't wait more than an hour without chasing it up.
The location of the Gizo Hotel is right near the wharf & the market on the main road, & the restaurant area has a nice, tropical feel and was always clean. The service was restrained, but polite.
All-in-all, it was a very nice place to eat.
