Simple and excellent

Not sure about the view, as the restaurant looks over the lagoons not the beach but nevertheless interesting. The point about this restaurant is that the fish is superb, salads and side orders simple, fresh and straightforward. Not cheap but worth it. Best fish we had during our 4 day stay. We... read more

Gigi's has been here for years and years - fantabulous prawns!!!!! Gorgeous seafood. Plenty of shade. Choose your fish at the counter. We opted for the giant tiger prawns served in garlic with new potatoes and salad. Great dressing on a superb salad.

The prawns were excellent as a starter followed by sea bass, I could not fault the quality of the food but I just felt it was a bit pricey considering the tightly packed seating plan and lack of sea view.

Perhaps Gigi's is overpriced to those who have been coming for many years but to us newcomers to Quinta do Lago, it was superb in its freshness and simplicity. We picked out our sea bass and it was weighed in front of us. 800 grams at 79 Euros/kilo. We also ordered a bottle of local rose, a bottle of sparkling... More

We visited Gigi's for lunch, based on the hype we'd heard about this place. The service was okay but nothing special, though we were treated to a bizarre display from the owner involving a sword and a bell... The quality of the food was good but again nothing special. Most notable was that the food was grossly overpriced, with opaque... More

Gigi is very fashionable a nice place with a nice view, but very crowded. Staff is friendly and the fish is OK but not special. Food is expensive.

Not sure what restaurant some are visiting. Spectacular views over the River Formosa, fantastic staff and wonderful food. Been going here for 25 years. It isn't cheap, but it is good.
